Notes/Commercial Description:
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

Stone Vertical Epic 11.11.11

Appearance: red, large head and some lacing.

Smell: strong malt, toffee, apple, and a slight hop.

Taste: apple, plum, a touch of cinnamon, and a chili pepper backbone.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy yet smooth and creamy.

Overall:
This is an odd brew but is quite drinkable. The flavors are complex and well matched. The chili's fit in very well. This was opened on 2/17/13.
