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.

Bottle cheers to Leighton. One of the better Lost Abbey beers I’ve had to date. Full amber pour with a rich, khaki head lasting for the duration leaving great lacing. Nose is full of dried and dark stewed fruits - sultana, date, fig. Massive toffee comes through with hints of vanilla and biscuit. Taste brings out nutty undertones - roasted walnut, fig, date, raisin, dough and toffee. Vanilla hints for sweetness. Great stuff

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2012
375ml bottle. Pours near black with an espresso head. Really looks more like a stout. The aroma is more quad-like though as raisins, candied sugar and other dried, dark fruits emerge. Taste is also like a quad with sweet raisins, dried figs and prunes. The cinammon, tamarind and chilis are there, but they are subtle and not overpowering. Actually, this is pretty nice. Alcohol is extremely well hidden in the flavor. No burn; only pleasant warmth in the throat and chest as it goes down. I would certainly look to pick up a couple more of these to enjoy before the world ends.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is figs, plums, and dates with cookie and caramel malt. Flavor is malt dominant with earthy Belgian yeast, dark fruity esters, peppers, chocolate and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

12oz Bottle
Appearance - Deep red, big toffee head
Aroma - Yeast, raisins, cinnamon, wet grass
Taste - Yeast, dark fruits, cinnamon, spicy, alcohol

This beer just got better and better as it warmed up. Incredibly fruity for a quad, and the cinnamon aided the alcohol finish quite nicely. I got to try this one thanks to the one and only OmegaX - thanks!!!

Bonus bottle share thanks Aaron. This was a great surprise pours dark brown with creamy light brown head with nice lacing along the glass. Smells of bread and cloves nice malty smell. Definitely taste the clove, raisin, plum and hints of chocolate. Overall this is a very good beer that has a hint of warming that is excellent for enjoying on the couch on a cold day.

Tap @ Lost Abbey... Poured dark, near black with a thin head. A little bit of a mole’ thing going on here. Spice and sweetness and hint of chile pepper to keep it interesting. Toasted and roasted notes, and some sweetness. Had the spices, but balanced and not really burning or anything.
