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 dont actually believe in the concept of an Apocalypse. We at The Lost Abbey didnt want to miss an opportunity to update our original Judgment Day recipe to accompany us as we collide towards this impending Rapture. Like us, were 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. Weve got you covered. See you on December 22nd wherever life may take us.

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2013
375ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Somehow cautious and indifferent aroma, hints of chocolate, unspecific dark fruit, spices, cinnamon. Taste is moderately sweet, dark malty, hints of dark fruit, plum, grapes and the like, dark chocolate, chili, cinnamon, some warming alcohol in the finish. Heavy stuff, somehow without emphasis, not really satisfying.

Tap @ brewery. Pours dark mahogany with a small beige head. Spicy chili citric fruity yeasty a bit boozy with some sweetness. Good longlived aftertaste.

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.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 11, 2013
The bottle is marked, with a straight face, best before 12/21/12. No idea on the true age. Sinister aroma of dark fruit and spices, with a touch of chocolate. Almost like a big stout in this regard. Dark brown color, turns red under light. Prickly taste that is bitter and also hot, along with a solid sweet malt background to confuse things. Punches the upper palate, right back into the sinuses. Heavy and difficult to put down in a reasonable time, which I dont say often. Theres so much thrown in here, you basically have the worlds best made malt liquor.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Deep dirty brown, huge frothy light beige head, nice lacing.   Big whole wheat bready and dark pitted fruit nose.   Smooth on the tongue, bready, somewhat heavy, with a soft alcohol background.   Not as musty as Belgian examples, but comes across as similar in every other aspect.   Smooth, hides the 10.5% ABV very well.   Doesnt feel as big as others tho.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate   Slight grape popsicle flavor on the backside, which to me screams artificial.   No idea how to otherwise interpret that.   Sweet finish, malty, but not all that musty or barnish as other examples.   The dark pitted fruit isnt as heavy either.   The only really good quality is that its very easy to drink for 10.5% ABV, and its not a complete ripoff.   Does have some Quad qualities, albeit minor.   Thanks Ron!

sebletitje (9645) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2013
Brune, col blanc cass moyen. Arme garde un bouquet typique belge, mais trs agrable. Fruit noir avec qcq notes dpices, sucre candi et ce profond bouquet chocolat et raisin. Le tout garde qcq effluves pimentes qui apportent une note de chaleur chaque respiration. Palais offre ce profil belge typique, le tout est pais avec un niveau alcool qui se ressent. On note bien le fruit noir, surtout au niveau des raisins. Cannelle reste discrte et accompagne un profil malt consquent; entre caramel et chocolat se terminant sur un subtile biscuit. Lajout des piments arrive juste en fin de bouche et ne drange pas trop, et sert bien lier les ingrdients. Effervescence moyenne pour un profil restant belge avec tjrs cet accompagnement de raisin, sucre candi et fruit noir prenant. Une version agrmente de piments qui fait honneur la Judgment Day.

Countbeer (6343) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, 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.

pineypower (3193) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle via trade. Pours a cola color with a small off white head. Aroma is of strange dried fruits, pepper, chilies, chocolate and over-ripe borderline rotted fruit. Taste is strange, earthy pepper, chilies, light heat, chocolate, dried fruits, light vegetable notes in there as well. Not my thing.
