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.

j12601 (9798) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Pouring at the Saturday sessions of Extreme Beerfest. Pours a hazed brown with a large yellowed beige head. Spicy, fuzzy musk, a touch of paper. Sweet, caramel, chocolate, prune and plum. Lots of roast, warm cocoa. Chocolate, roast, plum, more fuzzy muskiness. Lingering alcohol and wood on the finish.

JorisPPattyn (9672) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2013
Huge yellow-beige head, big bubbled & irregular, fully resistant and leaving lace over virtually black beer. Nose bursting with exotic vegetables, herbs and fruit. Chocolate and chili peppers; promising fiery heat and complexity. Chocalte, burnt, CO acidity, dark fruit, coffee cream, Bitter-sweet-spicy and yet moderate heat in the mouth. Bit aldehyde-like - the cinnamon? Again dark fruit in the background, steeped in brandy. Very creamy head, spritzy liquid and velvety, full-bodied beer; warming. Simply excellent.

olio (9669) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
375 ml bottle. Best after 12.12.2012.
Pours dark ruby red color with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of berries, caramel, ripe fruits and yeast. Flavor of ripe fruits, ash, berries, malts, yeast and faint spice notes. Way too strong carbonation, dry palate. Definitely a disappointment.

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Raisiny sweetness, alcohol heat and delicate spiciness evolve within this creative take on the Quadrupel style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam laces around the cloudy brown.
-Spices and chili are well integrated and could be mistaken for yeast phenolics. This is not a spice bomb, thankfully.
-Effervescence is relatively soft on the palate, which in turn makes the residual sugars feel a tad too heavy.
-This ones great with pecan nuts, for example.

Bottle. Thx Clark!

marcus (9561) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours near black with a large tan head and a chocolate and spice aroma. There is a sour chocolate and treacle flavor with a lot of spice tastes.

sebletitje (9556) - 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.

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pour out of 375 mL bottle, bottle opened with a loud pop, lots of carbonation. Dark reddish black pour with nice fluffy and large tan head, aroma brought notes of vanilla, dark fruits, plums, chilis, hints of cinnamon, ginger, touch of raisin, slight earthy notes. Taste is a nice mix of sweet vanilla, caramel, bready, like bread pudding almost with a creamy note, nice cinnamon, slight chili, ginger, hints of earth, grain, finishing fairly sweet, but dries out, carbonated well, finishing with some more dark fruits and sweet raisin. This is well done and very well balanced.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 "The world has ended a long time ago, we are going backward."Jhonn Balance. Thx! to Niel sampled 375 ml. corked & caged LA bottle. Pours dark brown with little beige head. Nose is dark fruits, light chocolate, spices, sweet herbs, very light licorish, Taste is overripe dark fruits, soaked raisins, clear booze, ferment dark fruits booze, red grapes, sweet, light chocolate, mellow malts, light vanilla oak, not really getting oak,.. Bit explosive carb. Not really getting chilli here, A clear attempt to imitate the greats of the style, solid but far from the top.
