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.

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
12oz bottle. The bottle looks cool, no doubts about it. The corsk jumps out with a loud pop, lots of pressure in this tiny bottle. Foam starts coming out slowly, gusher warning. It pours dark ruby / mahogany in the glass with a huge off-white head. Tiny bubbles that stick around and last long. Aroma is a tad weaker than you could expect. Nothing realy jumps in your face but you can easily distinguish raisins, red peppers, blood, yeast. Some cinnamon and bread in there, plus mix of dried fruits. Taste is on the sweet side with a slightly acidic kick in the end. You can raisins, cinnamon, bread, plums and chili in the end. It finishes a bit warming, but nothing to put me off. Actually I find the chili to be very well integrated. Some sort of orange zest kinde feel to it as well. Mouthfeel is medium to tick with huge carbonation. Nothing that a good ol’ swirl can’t resolve. Overall, this is good stuff. I think the spices added work perfectly with the base beer. Only complain would be the weak aroma, even at room temp. Very good nonetheless.
