Judgment Day

Judgment Day labelJudgment Day is another Lost Abbey monster (10.5% alcohol) made with raisins. It was the third and final bottle of Lost Abbey I opened for our friends this last weekend.

Appearance: Very deep red, approaching brown.

Smell: Unfortunately, I didn’t record aroma notes. Obviously we’d been through a few beers at this point!

Taste: Raisins very much prominent here (based on the previous beers with raisin). Strong and dark with dry fruit notes—more tart than sweet. Wine, brandy.

Mouthfeel: Firm, dry, alcohol heat. Sourish character from the raisins is noticeable.

Overall: Another solid beer… I bet this would do well with some barrel aging, too.

On BeerAdvocate, it scores 87 out of 100, with 100% approval. On RateBeer, it scores 3.83 out of 5 and is in their 96th percentile.
