Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: scottoale on 12-23-2006

A massive beer in every sense of the word. A stronger and more contemplative version of our Lost and Found Ale. Judgment Day is the base beer for our Cuvee de Tomme. Many of the Trappist Breweries produce a version of beer which ages incredibly well for many years to come. And, since none of us knows when the end of the world is coming, we suggest you stock up with lots of Lost Abbey beers so that when the end of the world magically appears from no where, you’ll have a beer or two on hand for even the stingiest of angels.

Had this at Craftheads in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan http://craftheads.jp

A - Jet black pour into a Lost Abbey chalice yielding a thick foamy, milky tan head wiith good retention and nice lacing (4.5)

S - Loads of dark fruits pleasantly blended with caramel on the nose along with some liquorice (4.5)

T - Sweet caramel flavors upfront, exploding into tonnes of dark fruits and chocolate flavors, nicely blended in with the alcohol phenols in the middle and lasting well into the finish where the familiar Lost Abbey belgian yeast (that was also present in the 10 commandments) could be discerned; complex and delectable (5)

M - Medium bodied thickness with slightly high carbonation and a foamy smooth texture, thus going down very easily (4.5)

D - Great flavors, ever so smooth and deceptively easy drinking at 10.5% ABV (4.5)

1st bottle release.

Deep cola brown pour with garnet highlights. Not much carbonation but a few bubbles. Aromas of dark malts with a mix of caramel, raisins and lots of dark fruits. Cocoa and spice with an earthy yeast undertone.

First sip brings smooth dark malts upfront with molasses, caramel and raisin flavors. Dark fruits mix through. Cocoa and bready undertones move into spicy yeast accents as it flows down. Mildly roasted with sweetness on the finish. Pretty tasty.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth. Mellow carbonation works well here IMHO and this bottle is far from flat. Overall tasty but it's still not near what I remember Mother of All Beers being. Will need to snag another fresh bottle sometime.

Belgian style bomber, caged and corked w/o freshness info. This one opened with a whimpy "poof" and then poured w/ next to no carbonation, no head and no lacing, hmmm..things pick up with the raisiny nose and then full throttle, tasty, raisiny notes picked up in the early sips. Malty sweet, some Belgian yeasty, nutty notes, rum soaked raisins, brandy whiffs, yum. More quality brew from L.A./Port brewing

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: 1/3 inch head, dark red/brown in color, hazy, high carbonation

Smell: raisin, dark fruit, and toasted malt

Taste: raisin, pumpernickel bread, cinnamon, dark fruit, and alcohol

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, slightly sweet with a bitter backbone, high carbonation

Drinkability: A nice and complex quad that is very raisin friendly. I do like raisin and bread combination. I would get this again but have other favorites from the brewery.

Thanks to kaiser81 for sending me this bottle.

The beer pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is raisins, alcohol and brown sugar. The flavor is awesome with raisins, brown sugar, milk chocolate, alcohol and Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Murky brown pour with absolutely no head. I tried to force one out and there was nothing. Raisins, prunes, brown sugar, dank yeast, and earth in the aroma. Sweet but a little smoky in the taste. Molasses, more raisins, toasted bread, and dusty yeast esters mix well. The lack of carbonation gives this a syrupy, liquer-like quality. Still, this is very good.
