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.

RexTalionis (2411) - FINLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle 37,5 cl, best after 21.12.2012. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Dark fruits as in raisins, bit of yeasty notes, old cellar notes too in aroma. Sweet dark raisins fruityness in taste, some chocolate, a bit of biting hot and light spicyness as in cinnamon in flavor. Soft and moussy mouthfeel. Excellent as a dessert beer together with some ice cream. Aftertaste has even that nice vinous vibe in it.

Countbeer (4392) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Brown pour. Medium to bigger sized beige foamy head on top of a deep dark red colored beer. Aromas of red fruit, strawberries and berries, yeast, chalk, leaves, wood, hint of peppery dust, cinnamon and meat, some malts, toast and liquorice (wood). Flavours of spices like pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon, dry, bitter, malt toast, berries, some strawberries and a hint of cherries, barley malts, nuts, leaves, some autumnal herbs and hay toast. Aftertaste is toasty, malty, peppery, woody and porridge. Low to medium carbo, creamy and lightly blown spicy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. One part of me really likes this beer with the pepper and such but the other half misses some interesting/complex body. Good beer but not what I expected.

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Pours dark brown with off white head, lots of carbonation in this one. Smells funky like a sour ale with dark fruit, roasted malts, yeast, woody country meadow with a hint of sweet chocolate. Its reminds me of a sour ale and a big impy stout could be infused. Taste is malts, hay, sour cherries, and spices. The finish is creamy, medium flavor, and not too thick on the palate with tons of carbonation. Good beer but not at all what I was expecting.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 22, 2013
22/11/2013 Bir&Fud Bottega (375ml bottle). Bruna, intensa, schiuma color beige- cappuccino, abbastanza persistente. Al naso sentori di toffee, malto, caramello, legno, zucchero di canna, alcol, buona complessità. In bocca è dolce all’attacco, caramello, toffee, quindi vira su un finale leggermente amarognolo. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione medio-bassa. Ottima, ma mi aspettavo di più.

Vignale (2035) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
Flaska från SB. Drygt ett år gammal. En relativt stiltypisk belgisk quad. som kryddats upp med fingertoppskänsla. Aningen chili, kanel, citrusskal förutom en lätt madeiratouch med russin och annan torkad frukt. Småbubblig munkänsla, relativt söt, alkoholvärme och en lätt efterbeska. Riktigt trevlig med lite julkänsla så här mitt i sommaren.

LoFi (1592) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from backlog. Very dark with a large beige head, when opened, the cork shoots off like opening a champagne bottle. Aroma: malty, fruity, licorice, wool. Taste: wool mittens, earthy, spices, a hint of milk chocolate, licorice, dried fruit. Full-bodied.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
On tap at Strong Ale Fest. Dark murky brown beer with minimal head. Aromas of sweetness and some spice. Flavors as you would expect with dark fruit, malt, raisin with the addition of cinnamon, brown sugar and spices . Not radically different than the base beer.

deekyn (1170) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 20, 2012
A - pours dark almost opaque cola brown with orange highlights. High Espresso head that dissipates quickly, nice lacing. S - Belgian yeast up front, cinnamon, chili notes, ginger ale, figs, dried dark fruit, raisins. M - strong bodied, full sweet rich palate. Tangy and burn on the back of the throat. High carb. Lingering malty stickiness. T - Belgian yeasts strong at first taste. Dried dark fruits (prunes and raisins) brown sugar, cinnamon, chili spice in the palate. Figs, hint of chocolate, vegetal malts on the end. Hints of tangy raw cacao. O - quite good spiced quad. Complex and subtle, not as complex or as long lasting as the best of the rich Belgian quads. 3.7 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
