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 don’t actually believe in the concept of an Apocalypse. We at The Lost Abbey didn’t want to miss an opportunity to update our original Judgment Day recipe to accompany us as we collide towards this impending Rapture. Like us, we’re 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. We’ve got you covered. See you on December 22nd wherever life may take us.

Sampled at Lost Abbey on 3/19//2014. This Abbey Quad pours a dark amber brown color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is dark fruit, dates, brown sugar and some chilies. Medium to full bodied Abbey Quadruple. The malts are dark fruit and sweet, brown sugar, molasses and dates. The hops are herbal and earthy. Big dark quad with some chili and other spices. Light carbonation. Nice balance between the malts and the spices. Very smooth. Finish is smooth and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet with a touch of spice.

brenn79 (1467) - Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2012
12.7 oz. corked n’ caged bottle- Pours a very murky dark brown to red with a thin tan head that reduces to a collar. The aroma is raisins, molasses, spices, interesting and surprisingly no alcohol burn in the aroma. The taste is so smooth, creamy, raisins, dates, moderate alcohol burn (but not that much really), Belgian yeast, spices. The palate is smooth and creamy, finishes with a moderate alcohol warming, and the carbonation is moderately high, but not for the style. I loved the original judgment day, and I love this, would have to compare to see which is better. I get the feeling I am drinking this young too, I think at least six months would do wonders for this beer!

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Sampled 12/22/12...yep, still here! Dark mahogany/mocha pour with a dense latte head that left rings of lacing. Beautifully carbonated. Chocolate covered raisins, cinnamon, plum, cracked black pepper, cocoa powder, and capsiacin. Nicely balanced spice, sweet, and heat. Unique and interesting. Enjoyed it...and I’m still alive to tell people about it!

ACHops (641) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2012
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours thin dark brownish black with oily lacey head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and a hint of spice. Taste is big roasty malts, strong black licorice and anise flavors, followed by nice chile heat on the finish. Lingering hop bitterness. Don’t think I’ve had the regular judgment day, but this is nice!

From the tap it is extremely dark in the glass with a medium head. The aroma has raisins, chocolate and heavy roasted malts. Taste has roasted malts with some sweetness maybe some molasses. There is also a touch of cinnamon. There is an alcohol punch in the end like some rum. Great finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Tap pours with a dark mahogany body and is supporting a light colored mocha head of foam. The aroma is initially loads blueberry, boysenberry and ripe juicy dark colored grapes. Then it becomes more spicy with coriander and a dash of cinnamon and then a nice sense of chocolate. The taste is full and rich with coriander like spices and then a black pepper sense as sweetness starts to fill in around the edges with a sweet mix of prunes, figs and chocolate. Tasty stuff.
