Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
Surprise American craft beer: a beer that delivers past your expectation. This might sound vague but I think it perfectly covers my thoughts on the topic. I keep it vague to cover the prospect of believing a beer to pretty good and exceeding those expectations. This is the category that I would have to place Judgement Day by The Lost Abbey.
Judgement Day is a Belgian Quad that seems to fit the style quite nicely. Raisin and plum are the first to greet the nose and. later, the palate. Yeas, Belgian candy, and alcohol also can be found. In spite of the alcohol presence and ABV of the beer it is smooth going down.
The bottle had less than a year of age on it and leads me to imagine that this should be fairly smooth up front. I don’t know how much ageing would help this beer. Definitely on my revisit list. Enjoy!
