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

I thought that I reviewed this last year but I guess I didn't. Anyways poured from a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass. This pours a slightly cloudy mahogany color with a three finger thick tan head which has mid retention and this completely dissipates. The smells are of cinnamon, chili, dark ripe fruit, Belgian sugar. The feel is medium to thick, tingly on the tongue. The taste is good enough, dark ripe fruit, sugar, cinnamon and a some nice green chili.
