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.

Dark dark brown with a hint of ruby.Giant tan head that lasted a few minutes and dissapated to lacing

Aroma of coffee, raisin, slight chocolate malts, dark caramel

Deep dark flavors, very intense. Alcohol melds very nicely with the other flavors coffee, more raisin (special B grain?), toffee, but the coffee really dominates this quad. Hints of fig also.

Mouthfeel is really nice. Super carbonated in a great way for this beer. The alcohol,dense flavors and high carbonation make it nice and balanced.

Overall, an excellent beer. An extremely well balanced big beer. Savor and enjoy.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

750 ml bottle that is corked & caged. 10.5% abv. Very dark brown, mahogany color. Very good looking rocky, tan head. Very nice head retention. A few nice spots of lace left over.

Nice darker fruit aroma. Raisins, figs and some dates. Almost a bit of a berry aroma as well. Darker malt feel. A bit of a Belgian spice feel, as well as a hint of alcohol.

Darker malt, with maybe a hint of chocolate. Raisins and figs abound. Darker fruit. A slight dark bread feel. Alcohol blends in very well. Only a slight Belgian spice feel.

Medium body, with a good amount of carbonation, preventing it from feeling overly heavy. Some warmth from alcohol, but nothing overwhelming. Well done.

Poured from the bottle after a year or two of aging a dark mahogany with a thin and wet tan head. No lacing.

Aroma of sweet caramel malts, raisin and booze.

The taste is sweet and boozy with caramel malts, raisin, molasses and candy sugar. The 10.5% alcohol is definitely present and lets you know it with every sip.

Medium bodied and sticky with a moderate carbonation.

This is definitely one to drink slowly and enjoy on a cold winter evening.

Pours a reddish and ruby brown translucent color with a small tan head that has low retention and lacing.

Aroma is malty, caramel and dark fruits. I get mainly plums, red grapes, raisins and a slight alcohol volatile component.

Taste is malty upfront with caramel and nuts followed by a good amount of dark fruits such as figs, grapes, plums and raisins.

Body is moderate to heavy with low carbonation. Alcohol is really non apparent.

Overall an ok quadrupel that has flavor and is fairly drinkable, hiding the abv very well. Another good beer from The Lost Abbey.
