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

22oz bottle.

A: Cherry red with a thin off-white/creme colored head.

N: Cherry, iron, lavender, cinnamon, and wood. Chili peppers show up with a fruity and spicy aroma.

T: Very spicy due to the adjuncts. Good level of sweetness to balance this one out.

M: Moderately sticky and medium bodied.

O: My favorite of the series. The spice and malt are integrated together to make for an enjoyable sipper.
