COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five thousand years ago the Mayan Calendar last turned over. Since then, Nostradamus, The Book of Revelations and random Shaman have all prognosticated that mankind would meet a fateful end. Currently, our demise is scheduled for December 21, 2012 for it has been so decreed our world is about to end not in a Christian Judgment Day but rather a Mayan Apocalypse. Funny thing is, the Mayans donít actually believe in the concept of an Apocalypse. We at The Lost Abbey didnít want to miss an opportunity to update our original Judgment Day recipe to accompany us as we collide towards this impending Rapture. Like us, weíre pretty sure you can believe in dried Chiles, Cinnamon and Tamarind working well together in this beer. This means you can count on this little bottle of beer to help you survive this cultural Armageddon. Please pop the cork and enjoy this version. Weíve got you covered. See you on December 22nd wherever life may take us.

Tap @ PP Strong Ale. Murky caramel pour. Aroma is pepper, dense sweet malt, clove, and dark fruit. Taste is a straight ahead quad with a lot of pepper/spice, slight clove, and darker malt aspects with lingering alcohol. Nice beer but not terribly different than other solid quads Iíve had.

On tap at Strong Ale Fest. Dark murky brown beer with minimal head. Aromas of sweetness and some spice. Flavors as you would expect with dark fruit, malt, raisin with the addition of cinnamon, brown sugar and spices . Not radically different than the base beer.

deekyn (1168) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 20, 2012
A - pours dark almost opaque cola brown with orange highlights. High Espresso head that dissipates quickly, nice lacing. S - Belgian yeast up front, cinnamon, chili notes, ginger ale, figs, dried dark fruit, raisins. M - strong bodied, full sweet rich palate. Tangy and burn on the back of the throat. High carb. Lingering malty stickiness. T - Belgian yeasts strong at first taste. Dried dark fruits (prunes and raisins) brown sugar, cinnamon, chili spice in the palate. Figs, hint of chocolate, vegetal malts on the end. Hints of tangy raw cacao. O - quite good spiced quad. Complex and subtle, not as complex or as long lasting as the best of the rich Belgian quads. 3.7 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at sb. Pours nearly black with a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of sheeting lace. Big tart tangy nose--not sharp but still dimensional. Creamy medium body with soft but detectable carb. Dark pitted tree fruit, orange peel, and spices on the mid palate. Long pleasant dried fruit finish.

Phatdog1 (179) - Brentwood, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 30, 2012
12.7 oz bottle. Poured deep dark brown with a thick fizzy brown head. Big pruney nose. Initial taste of dark fruit, prunes and raisins. Very much like rootbeer in the middle. Cinnamon on the back of the tongue with a boozy finish. Really interesting! Worth picking up another for the cellar to see how it will taste on 12/21/2013. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours dark reddish black with nice thick tan foamy head. Aroma of chocolate, raisins, alcohol, cinnamon, toast. soy sauce. Moderately sweet with trailing light bitterness. Full body. Lively on top, creamy underneath. A lot like DFH Palo Santo Maron. This would probably age really well, but itís too hot right now.

Bottle, thanks Brian, pours dark brown with off white head. Aroma chipotle, brown sugar, chocolate. Flavors chocolate and raisins, cloves, phenolic yeast character. Spices get lost with a big yeast character.

Thanks for the bottle, Reg! Pours dark reddish brown. I can smell and taste the house yeast upfront. Brown sugar nose. Strong flavors of sweet candies, rasins and toffee. Boozey, The spices are far in the background. Some burn in the finish.

Bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. Spice and roasted malt aromas. The taste pretty much follows suit with some pepper and cacao undercurrents.

Peacehammer (619) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2013
pours a deep mahogany. Nice thick, three fingers of off white head. Lots of plum and raisin on the nose. A slight hint if heat, but itís faint. Flavor is a lot more of the same plum raisin dark fruit flavor. A touch of cinnamon on the finish, and a hint of heat.
