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.

Abio (1569) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2013
Got something small to celibrate, and the name of this beer is related. Very dark brown beer, a good head that holds nice and steady. Malts, raisins and spiced coffee and chocolate. Not bad at all. I like the spices and maybe this one will age even better. If It was some cheaper I would buy more for sure. When warming up there get some more unpleasant biterness trough. That is a bit sad.

NeuroPliny (143) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2013
On tap at Lost Abbey. Dark thick head; nice lace. Subtle caramel, ripe plum, and vanilla with notes of exotic spice on the the nose. Surprisingly sweet up front which fades to a subtle kick and long spicy finish. Way more subtle than expected considering the two types of chili, cinnamon, and tamarind that went into the brewing process. Caramel and Far East spice in one gulp. Amazing.

Pours dark dark dark brown with medium latte brown head Aromas of chilies and actually hints of cinnamon, bready malts, not a lot of belgian yeastyness though Nice liqourichy taste where chilies are present as well. Almost a bit stingy.

Valgreen (649) - DENMARK - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz Bottle in vejle, 23/5 2013. Very dark brown, with medium lasting off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of raisins, honey, wine, spices, some booze. Taste off grapes, honey, liquorice, spicy and dry at the end. Some dark chocolate in the aftertaste. Remind me off spicy wine. Palate is pleasant, very carbonated at first and then mellows out. Not my kind of beer, but still good.
