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.

lusikka (7757) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
375 ml bottle.
Pours a dark amber brown colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of sweet tart berries, dark chocolate and some alcohol. Flavour of sweet caramel, tart berries, alcohol, metallic notes, dark chocolate, some off-flavours, grass and spices. Medium bodied, massive carbonation and a long, sweet, alcohol burning, metallic finish. Horrible balance and pretty close to a homebrew. What a disappointment. Hopefully its just this bottle.

after4ever (7714) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Draft at sb. Pours nearly black with a dense and creamy tan head. Lots of sheeting lace. Big tart tangy nose--not sharp but still dimensional. Creamy medium body with soft but detectable carb. Dark pitted tree fruit, orange peel, and spices on the mid palate. Long pleasant dried fruit finish.

bytemesis (7419) - 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.

teorn88 (7205) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
12oz bottle. The bottle looks cool, no doubts about it. The corsk jumps out with a loud pop, lots of pressure in this tiny bottle. Foam starts coming out slowly, gusher warning. It pours dark ruby / mahogany in the glass with a huge off-white head. Tiny bubbles that stick around and last long. Aroma is a tad weaker than you could expect. Nothing realy jumps in your face but you can easily distinguish raisins, red peppers, blood, yeast. Some cinnamon and bread in there, plus mix of dried fruits. Taste is on the sweet side with a slightly acidic kick in the end. You can raisins, cinnamon, bread, plums and chili in the end. It finishes a bit warming, but nothing to put me off. Actually I find the chili to be very well integrated. Some sort of orange zest kinde feel to it as well. Mouthfeel is medium to tick with huge carbonation. Nothing that a good ol swirl cant resolve. Overall, this is good stuff. I think the spices added work perfectly with the base beer. Only complain would be the weak aroma, even at room temp. Very good nonetheless.

The_Osprey (7132) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle - drink after 21/12/12. Very dark - almost black with a slight red tinge. Big foamy beige head endures, thick lacing. Smell - yeast and milky instant coffee. Body is medium to light and very foamy. Typical of Belgian style beers but really not my type of thing. Taste - malts, spice, sweetened milky coffee or chicory, dank cave (if that counts as a flavour) alcohol comes through noticeably but not as much as it could at 10.5%, tamarind is there as advertised. True to the style and decent enough.

Bottle - Dark brown with red tinges. Leather, dried fruit and marzipan in the aroma. Fruity, sweet and slightly smoky taste with notes of raisins and marzipan standing out.
