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.

jmgreenuk (9122) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 12, 2013
Bottle at the John=Jim Den Haag tasting, Den Haag. Poured a dark brown colour with a thick frothy off white head. The aroma is dry with some hoppy notes. The flavour is strong bitter and alcoholic. The palate is a little too bitter. The alcoholic bitterness is starting to dominate which doesnt appeal to me.

Sample at a tasting at Systembolaget, March 2013. Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of fruit, raisin, malt and some cinnamon. The taste was quite complex with spices, malt, dark fruit, chocolate, yeast, soap and some warming alcohol. Quite creamy mouth feel and with a long aftertaste. A good beer.

Ibrew2or3 (8557) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Tap pours with a dark mahogany body and is supporting a light colored mocha head of foam. The aroma is initially loads blueberry, boysenberry and ripe juicy dark colored grapes. Then it becomes more spicy with coriander and a dash of cinnamon and then a nice sense of chocolate. The taste is full and rich with coriander like spices and then a black pepper sense as sweetness starts to fill in around the edges with a sweet mix of prunes, figs and chocolate. Tasty stuff.

(Bottle) Dark brown colour with big, but brief, foamy beige head. Malty, spicy nose with dark fruit, coffee, liquorice, caramel, dark chocolate, orange peel and spices (dried chilli, cinnamon). Malty, spicy taste with notes of caramel, liquorice, black coffee, chocolate, orange peel, spices (chilli, cinnamon, star anise, ginger), burnt sugar and a balanced spicy bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a touch of sweetness. Quite powerful and complex, with lots of coffee, chocolate and spices. Nice one.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2013
37,5 cl bottle @ home, BA 21.12.2012
Aroma is sweet with alcohol, berries, caramel and some spices. Flavour is quite messy with stinging alcohol, berries, some spices. Foamy palate is too high on CO2. Messy and boozy like some quads from Danish breweries. Somehow the feeling of alcohol fits here though. A slow sipper in LA style, worse than the others though.

bytemesis (8111) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Tap. Pours deep reddish chestnut, small tan head, good lacing. Aroma is yeast, dried dark fruit, malty, molasses. Flavor is very spiced, cinnamon, chili pepper, medium sweet, zesty bitter. Medium body, pretty hot. Too spiced for my tastes.

jredmond (8096) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle from Windy City shared at Andys. Pours a deep mahogany body with thin bubbly lacing. Aroma is spice, cinnamon, peppers, and dark fruit. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated with notes of dark fruit, spice, chili peppers, cinnamon, and caramel. Overall, the heat in the body really holds this back from being another Lost Abbey knockout. However, Id be curious to get another bottle and see how age rounds this out.
