A massive beer in every sense of the word. A stronger and more contemplative version of our Lost and Found Ale. Judgment Day is the base beer for our Cuvee de Tomme. Many of the Trappist Breweries produce a version of beer which ages incredibly well for many years to come. And, since none of us knows when the end of the world is coming, we suggest you stock up with lots of Lost Abbey beers so that when the end of the world magically appears from no where, youll have a beer or two on hand for even the stingiest of angels. Available in 750ml bottles and on draft at select inspired locations.

Editor's note. This is a new incarnation of Mother of All Beers, previously brewed at Pizza Port Solana Beach.

JorisPPattyn (9824) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2008
Draught (!) Huge, dark-beige head over hazy dark chestnut beer; Very "Belgian" nose with dark fruity, fusels, little coriander-like spices, dark malts and raisins. Sweet, with a little sourish edge. Raisins, grapes, fortified wine, fusels, oak. Very oily-smooth, viscous, and VERY well-bodied. Superb realisation, again, smooth & deadly.

Tap @ Port Brewing. Deep amber color,reddish brown. Malty aroma with some chocolate. Biscuit taste with some malt and a touch of hops. Subtle alcohol, loads of malt throughout. Great alcohol warming. Excellent. Would buy again

strong lasting aromas of raisin, fig and the caramely base found in my favorite types of barleywine. poured in a trappist glass, but the head was thin and short lasting. the beer itself though is a respectable mysterious dark dark brown with ripe plum hues and some haze. sweet in the mouth, nearly sticky and off putting. still young and sharp. oh goodness, now i notice a thick sludgy film on the bottom of the glass. looks like thisll be a two-stager. initially theres some cherry and walnut, but the sharp alcohol cuts a bit deep and i want to either store another bottle for a year or bring an open flame to the glass and reduce the liquid. after swirling and adding the bonus goodness to the remaining beer in my goblet the beer mellowed significantly as i drank the first part much too quickly to let the octane influence my opinion. the ripe berry notes came out more on top of the sting and the body thickened only a touch. Ive really been looking forward to this beer, and now I will look equally forward to enjoying an older bottle.

This packs the punch that Lost & Found didnt have. Also brewed with raisins, which lends it an aroma and a flavor of (you guessed it) raisins, along with other dried fruits... but this one sticks to the darker side of the spectrum - plums, figs and grapes rather than apricots. A bit of yeasty bread in there, too, making this like a good sweet bread made with raisins. Pours a deep brown with a thin head, the aroma is *very* sweet, and the carbonation - while lively - isnt overpowering, partly because this beer is much thicker than the others Ive tried from Lost Abbey. While not quite up to some of the real Belgian quads Ive tried (Im still just not sure about raisins), this is a wonderful effort at an incredibly complex beer. Careful, though - this one belies its 10.5%.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2008
Thanks to Hellbilly & JCB for this one! Pours dark brown with reddish hues. Thin tan head and minimal lacing. Boozy aroma. Slight raisin and figs on the mouth-feel with a bitter yeasty finish I get alot of raisin on the after taste

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 1, 2008
750ml bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin, fizzy light brown head, fades quick no lace. Smells like extra raisiny raisin bread, sweet fruits and spices. Tastes much the same way, dark sweet fruits and dark spicy bready yeastiness. Ehh, raisin beer not so much. A touch syrupy with crisp carbonation.

Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, dark fruits. Flavor is sweet, alcohol is there but not overpowering.

Courtesy of Dragonstout. Pours a dark brown with a little head. Aroma is mostly booze, with some fruit on the nose. Tastes of typical sticky sweet dark fruits. Lots of spice, and caramel. Finishes with the typical Quad palate. Very good.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Another bottle graciously shared by Crosling. Poured a deep hazy brown color with a thin off-white head that diminished to a ring. Aroma of dark fruit, raisin, yeast, and light alcohol. Light, semi-tart entry leads into a lightly bitter finish with undertones of plum, raisin, and light alcohol. Smooth of the palate with a nice bitter bite on the finish. Thanks Nick.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Cloudy red-brown. Minimal head. Raisiny, roasty celery-infused aroma. Flavor is initially tart, then pruny and palate-coatingly smooth and a bit clumsy. Light bits of dark chocolate, coconut and brown sugar. Finishes with mild tartness and well-integrated bitterness. Nicely done.
