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.

neuromatt (1154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2013
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear mahogany with a tiny tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose there are sweet fruity notes, along with delicate spice, mostly tamarind, but some cinnamon as well. The flavour begins moderately sweet with raisins, figs and brown sugar, along with just a subtle hint of spice. The spice gradually grows through the middle but is never excessive. The finish is long and malty sweet with a hint of pepper. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a smooth milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall a beautiful spicy quad with very subtle spices. A little tripel-esque, very elegant. 2013-03-23
