This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

As with any good epic, herein lies the promise of larger-than-life experiences, heroics and twists & turns as the adventure unfolds. These bottle-conditioned ales are specifically designed to be aged until sometime after December 12th, 2012. Provided you can wait that long. At that time, enjoy them in a "vertical" tasting. Each one unique to it's year of release. Each with its own "twist & turn" in the plotline. Each one released one year, one month and one day from the previous year's edition. To remind you, the remaining dates are: 12.12.12

This exceptionally different ale, presented itself with a deep, rich yet cloudy mahogany color. The aroma is of sweet malt, prunes or dates, cinnamon and yes, chiles. This combination should not work but does quite nicely. The cinnamon is not as present but the sweet malt is at the front. The chilis are more forward at the end of the bottle and I really enjoyed the second half more than the first. The completely different nature of this ale makes it succeed and I recommend it for anyone experimenting.
