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.

poisoneddwarf (1837) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 21, 2012
12.7 oz corked and caged bottle. Pours dark brown with a medium beige head with good retention. Aroma is predominant caramel with some underlying dark fruit, banana and cinnamon. Taste is sweet and savory with some tartness and a hint of bitterness in the finish; quite a bit of alcoholic heat in the finish, too. Bit of a banana flavor. I don’t detect any chilies, sadly. I was looking forward to a spicy beer, dammit! Quality beer, but it’s not what I was expecting. I guess I was expecting something more apocalyptic.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2013
The pour is a deep, dark murky maroon with a moderate, foamy, frothy, pale tan head with is fully lasting leaving nice froth and similar lace. The nose is very nice with cinnamon and peppery spice noted, burnt caramel, rum-soaked raisins, English toffee, and candied dates. The flavor is much of the same still some dry, peppery, cinnamon notes, toffee, candied dates, molasses, light banana bread, and lighter raisins. The palate is nice with a full body, more than moderate carbonation, drying and chewy mouthfeel. The finish is more dry with still the cinnamon, light pepper, molasses, raisins, and some candied dates. Using the Mexican spices did add a completely different approach to the style with the dryness and spice, but I found it less enjoyable to drink than the original. Still a nice beer from an incredible brewery.

neuromatt (1225) - 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
