BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States
lostabbey.com

Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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 brown appearance with little head and just the right amount of carbination. Mild molasses and fruit aroma. Taste is also mild molasses and fruit with very little alcohol aftertaste.

Not my favorite from this brewery. It's reminiscent of an imperial stout. Chocolately, bit hoppy. Not bad overall.

This beer is as strong as you'd expect, but not nearly as heavy. The smell of raisins is evident, but it doesn't overpower the taste and it comes in lighter than you'd expect when you actually drink it. A very good quad.

The look is a hazy, deep ruby-brown color with a thick light tan head. Aromas of ripe raisins, figs, plums, and tawny port. Taste follows the nose, with bright raisin notes up front, evolving into a fruity, complex palate with dark fruit, red wine, caramel, and coffee on the finish. There is a nice warming at the end but this does not taste boozy.

Look: It pours dark brown with ruby hues. It has legs and a moderate head that produces significant lacing.

Smell: It has pronounced raisin aromas. In addition there is a vinous quality to it with various earthly elements.

Taste: There are flavors of raisins, vinous qualities, dark fruits, and spices. The flavors are sweet and highlighted by a sugary punch in the middle of various complex flavors.

Feel: It has a full body with plenty of alochol warming.

Overall, this is an awesome beer especially to any that is a fan of raisins. It has multiple complex flavors and aromas.

Pours a dark brown color with about a half finger of head. The nose has a bready essence to go with a slightly sweet note. The flavor is predominately malty with a dry finish.
