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.

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 (718) - 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.

RexTalionis (2614) - 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 (4739) - 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.
