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.

Ibrew2or3 (8493) - 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.

sebletitje (9908) - 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.

12.7. Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours dark brown, with cream head. Aroma licorice, raisin, roasty, coffee, cinnamon, chocolate, dark fruits, malts. Taste full rich sweet, followed by a dark choco hoppy bitter. There is long dark aftertaste. Mouth-feel full creamy, oily, tinteling carbo. Wow awesome beer, complex nose and great taste. Maybe bit unbalanced but doesnt hurt the beer.

"#4500! Cin and peppers expected, tamarind was not. Totally cool, unique, and decadent unexpected treat. I like the base beer and this version was deeelicious. Low heat, all kinds of complexity, and sweetness..."
