COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, you’ll 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.

Poured from 750ml bottle into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach it was hard to peg this tape-wrapped bottle. Dark red-brown in body with a small tan head that quickly settles to a thin ring. Some spotty lacing is left on the glass. Aroma is raisins, figs, plums, chocolate malt, yeast, and alcohol. Taste is strong dark fruit and caramel malt sweetness with a touch of cherry, light cocoa and spice bitterness, and alcohol on the swallow. Medium-plus body, syrupy thick texture, average to soft carbonation, alcohol and spice finish. I have read that newer bottles may be too carbonated, but think this bottle was aged some, so that may have affected the profile. I quite enjoyed this style-bending quad.

Pours a rich black coffee brown from a bottle, thick off-white head.Aroma is a rich maltiness, almost a hint of coffee, but with a faint whiff of raisin. Similar flavor, but nicely non-boozy despite the boost. Good beer.

One of the rewards to myself in a visit to the Windy City. The cork comes out of the 750 ml bottle and the contents go into my Chimay glass, reserved for such tastings. The brew delivers a classic quadrupel body, very dark with a tinge of red around the outside. The head comes on strong, tan colored and finely bubbled, and hangs in there long term. The nose gives me currant, vanilla and some floral. The taste, top 50 deservedly, improves on the interesting scent. I find plum, fig, a bit of oakiness, something earthy, yeast, a toffee sweetness. A subdued strength in the flavors, sort of an American version of Rochefort 10, high praise intended. A slight bitterness ending, all well done.

Mahogany color, medium sized brown head. Aromas of toffee, dried fruits, vanilla, alcohol, raisins, light licorice and vinous hints. Sweet taste with raisins, alcohol, syrup, licorice, wood and spices. Finish feels a bit off, but solid overall.

DonGregorio (507) - POLAND - JUL 23, 2017
Bottle shared at tasting. Unclear brown colour, large tan head. Aroma of raisins, dried fruits, caramel, biscuit. Taste is medium+ sweet and light to medium bitter, raisin, dried fruit, caramel, alcohol, notes of red fruits. Boozy and fruity finish. Medium to full body, average carbonation. Nice quad, but too boozy, slightly disappointing.

Very close to a black pour with tannish head. Fairly subdued aroma at a double digit alch. Dark fruits, licorice, clove, oak and spice. Flavor contains a lot of heat, clove and spice, raisins, plums, dark roasted and burnt notes and rum. It is dark. I enjoy the attempt at a super darker than black tasting quad with some fruity notes, though it doesn’t hit me as a super meshable cocktail.

Aromat: bardzo słodki, gęsty i zawiesisty, rodzynki, suszone śliwki, figi, karmel. Po chwili wchodzą jasne owoce, gruszki, banan, morele, brzoskwinie. Wygląd: barwa ciemnej miedzi, śliczna, bardzo wysoka, kremowa piana średniopęcherzykowa. Smak: słodkie, gęste, treściwe, pełne. Rodzynki, karmel, suszone śliwki, gruszki, jabłka i figi. Świeże jasne owoce, banan, morela, słodkie winogrona, oraz trochę gorzkiej czekolady w posmaku. Pełne ciała, dobrze ułożone, alkohol ukryty, dobry balans. Goryczka jest tu jak na styl bardzo duża, ziołowa, zalega także na finiszu. Widać że to amerykańska szkoła, ale w tym przypadku mi to nie przeszkadza, bo jakoś składa się na ten niezły balans. Dzięki owocowości jest pijalne, nie męczy, piwo bardzo złożone, bogate i wielowymiarowe. Smakowało mi, także na plus oryginalne podejście do stylu. Dobre piwo. 7/4/8/4/17

Aromat, owocowy, wiśnie, truskawki, poziomki, rodzynki, słodowy, lekko karmel, nuty kwaskowo winne, drożdże, minimalnie alkohol.Zapach złożony, bardzo przyjemny. Smak, pełnia, słodycz, karmel, bogate nuty owocowe, jest ostrość przyprawowa, korzenna, gorzka czekolada, drożdże. Wszystko tu gra, goryczka zaznaczona wyraźna, alkohol ułożony wyczuwalny jedynie w szlachetny sposób, nasycenie średnie do wysokiego.
