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

4oz draft pour into a tulip glass.

A: Deep brown ruby color with slight head.

S: Apple cider / pie smell. A bit of heat from the chile in the nose, but really faint.

T: Apple, cinnamon taste with hints of clove spice.

M: Creamy mouthfeel and not overly sweet. Not much chile heat.

O: Good, but not great. Was left wanting more from the taste and smell, especially with the chiles. Aging might bring out more complexity.

Enjoyed from the tap at Tops one year after its initial release, served in a tiny snifter. This is a Belgian-style amber ale brewed with cinnamon and Anaheim chilies from New Mexico’s legendary Hatch Valley.

Cloudy crimson. A thin, wispy head of light tan.

Surprisingly sweet nose. There's a big banana note that blends with heavy, sweet peaches. Green chiles meld in perfect proportion with the sugary fruit, making this almost seem like it was sour or spiked with some funkifying yeast strain.

Earthy peppers are more apparent in the flavor, though without heat. Kind of like voting into a green pepper, the same bite. Nice blend of pear and banana in the back, though banana is bigger here. Black pepper, red apples, a touch of honey. Complex and pretty damn tasty.

Medium light body, moderate massaging carbonation break the beer into a ton of fizz.

Much improved from its original form. I like this way more than I did when I had it last year. Nice use of peppers, good Belgian sweetness.

draft at Rustico Ballston around the time of release...

a: a totally gorgeous beer served from draft to tulip, a cloudy ruby-amber in color, floating a thick, meringue-thick head, off-white in color, with superb retention and heavy lace

s: the nose starts things off in intriguing fashion - a sweet toasted malt underpinning holds big medicinal phenols - band-aid and clove, cinnamon spice, yeasty esters, and hatch chiles that provide both fruity and spicy notes, lots happening here - certainly challenging, but not offensive, the combination of chile and spice does totally dominate the nose

m: smooth, creamy, lively carbonation on the medium bodied beer

t: first sip was a classic "wtf" moment - never expected the mess of flavor found, even though the nose might have hinted at it - the phenols, spice, and pepper that intrigued on the nose combine here to create a shocking disaster of a palate - reminiscent of cheap perfume, incense, and sandalwood soap, an apparently generous hop addition brings a bitterness to the finish that just doesn't match up, no chile heat noted, sure - I'm not totally down on it - the base beer seems nice and the moments of isolated hatch chile are enjoyable - but there's just way too much clashing here, for the first 1/3 of the glass I wanted to dump it in a shrub, the second 1/3 was just a chore (soldiered on, can't say I didn't give it a fair shot), and the last 1/3 not so terrible - either deadened tastebuds or an alcoholic numbness to the rescue

o: a beer that's initially inventive and interesting on the nose turns scary on the tongue - some good and bad to this one, overshooting tasteful boundaries, gonna take more than a year to mellow this baby out

Was surprised to see I hadn't reviewed this previously. In any event, I had it on tap at Pacific Coast Brewing during their Vertical Epic event in 2/13.

The beer pours a reddish amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is somewhat unusual, as I pick up honey, cinnamon, sandlewood and vanilla. The flavor profile replicates the nose in this fairly sweet beer, with the cinnamon and vanilla seeming to dominate. There's a hint of bitterness and heat from the alcohol in the finish, which helps to counter the sweetness somewhat. The beer is otherwise medium bodied, with a fairly long, spice, heat and bitter infused finish. Alcohol is noticeable, but not overly so.

Definitely an interesting beer at this stage of its life.

Had this on tap for the VE tasting (beers 07.07.07-12.12.12) at Pacific Coast Brewing Co. during SF Beer Week. All reviews are from my notes.

Pours a reddish-brown melded color, complete with a little ring at the top of the glass. Not dark enough to appear opaque, although it doesn't look to cloudy overall, nor does it have too many bubbles. I definitely can tell the alcohol is present on this one, with the the legs dangling all around and a strong thick consistency as I swirled the glass. Murky, sort of messy, but definitely different.

At the nose, rather than get pelted with chili peppers, there are tons of surprising medicinal notes going on, including a caramelized brown sugar backdrop. There are some peppery notes that linger about, but there's a zest/spice combo going on here that I can't put my finger on. The Flanders yeast definitely trimmed the spices to a sourish edge, but it's not as strong as you may think. Getting herbs such as basil, rosemary, dill, and a hint of clove, all topped with black pepper and slight zest/muted tart. Very strange, kind of intimidating, but interesting.

The best way to describe a beer this crazy is that the first taste immediately reminded me of spiced paprika jalapeño rye bread soaked in huge sugared notes. Now, I actually love that as much as any fan of peppers, but don't think the flavor stops there. The finish immediately melds into a light bouquet of chili peppers, combined with cinnamon burnt notes, and lots of rosemary and clove. The astringency produced by the peppers and cinnamon is not very welcoming, and the other spices do try to balance it out. It doesn't seem to improve as it warms up either, as it gets even more ridiculously astringent and acidic, malty as hell, and then resembling herbal medication such as echinacea.

Surprisingly, to this palate at least, this isn't a complete trainwreck despite all of its counter-productive spices. The more I see it as an herbal beer in the same way that Benedictine is a herbal liqueur, the more I appreciate what it's trying to do. Kind of reminds me of a long dose of propolis with peppers, for better or for worst. Too bad the Belgian yeast or alcohol didn't do too much to balance this out, but for fans of strange herbal beers, this may be up your alley.

Stone 11.11.11 on tap at Amsterdam Ale House in Manhattan, New York. Enjoyed on 08.04.12.

Appearance: Served in a fishbowl snifter, still appearance, no head, no lacing, dead looking. Intriguing, though! Deep auburn, the color of Nicole Kidman's hair. Shiny and gold-flecked.

Smell: Raisin, brown butter, malt, grape juice, must. Mulled wine, cherry. Sweet-and-sour overtones.

Taste: Follows nose, with a more aromatic feel. Spice, lavender, honey. Also hops and tartness. Yeast, "that Belgian feel" all over. Clover. Caramel and some sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Damn right! Well balanced all around, with full body, flavor and medium carbonation. Not dry, great spicy finish.

Overall: Drinkable (within measure), engaging, intriguing. Aging 9 months has done a lot of good to this brew!

On tap at Summits' Wayside Tavern Snellville. Reviewed from notes.

16 oz $7.99

(Appearance) Served with a light cream head of a thick cream foam. Retention is average. Color is a medium brown, with a lot of copper red accents. Appearance is lighter looking than I had expected but still decent. 3

(Smell) sweet aromatics, vanilla, caramel and a hint of chiles. Aroma certainly leans to the sweet side. Potency is a medium. the sweet aroma really overshadows much else this beer might have to offer. 3.5

(Taste) tart bitter spice and cinnamon malt flavors finishing with a sharp chile pepper taste. Pretty alarming in intensity overall, and most Flavors overdone throughout. There's a ton of confusion to this beer. sure, theres tons of flavor but without balance its nothing short of a muddled mess. Not really Stone's finest hour. 2.5

(Mouthfeel) Slightly Prickly with medium carbonation. Low alcohol presence. Medium body. Decent pairing for what the taste goes for. 3.5

(Overall) Bizarre Flavors make for a really hit-or-miss beer. It finds such a niche market that I really don't feel iT is worth seeking out by most craft beer lovers. In the end I find it to be average at best and won't seek it out again. 3

Served on tap in a 10 Oz straight glass.

This Belgian strong ale pours dark amber/ brown, very clear and with a little quickly dissipating head. The smell and taste really compliment each other, A lot of Belgian yeast, Wheat, grain, a slight fruitiness and a touch of alcohol. This beer also has a spicy taste and feel, almost like a little cinnamon or another spice put into it, sort of christmassy. The alcohol is warming but there's very little of it in the taste, I found this be be a surprisingly easy to get down Belgian strong pale. This is another good offering from stone but I always expect great from them, granted, this is far from my favorite style.

A: Khaki, tan, creamy thick head. Light mahogany brown with a bright amber hue. Incredible sticky legs.

S: Gummy, soft bubblegum nose. Banana, spicy Belgian yeast with undertones of peppers. Slight alcohol aroma as warms up.

T/M: Fluffy as could be with a mellow body that flows smoothly until a slight carbonation at the end turns to faint burn from peppers. Hint of chocolate mixed with banana esters lingers.

O: One of the smoothest Belgian beers while having a dynamic profile. Complex flavors come across as simple and straight forward. Not sure about a Belgian Pale Ale but for a Belgian chili beer this hits the spot.

On tap at Square Burger in McKinney.

The beer pours a clear amber color with a large white head. The aroma has quite a bit of caramel and toffee, as well as a lot of green peppers and some assorted spices such as nutmeg.

The flavor is has a lot of cinnamon, peppers, toffee and Belgian yeast. All of the spices and peppers surprisingly work well together and make the beer enjoyable. There is also a touch of alcohol, but not as much as I expected.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draught @ Mikro: This one poured a hazy, dark amber color. There was a small tan head on it. I’m not to sure about the aroma. Peppers are predominate. They tend to mask much of anything else. There is a blended aroma besides the peppers, but it isn’t really compelling nor offensive. The taste is different. I get a Belgian yeasty, bready beer with some hops, but then the light peppery taste manages to overwhelm it, and not in a good way. Maybe the peppers will mellow over time, but right now this beer isn’t that good.

Consumed February 17, 2012 at BoHo, Hollywood, CA.

Beer is a clear caramel brown with a modest, splotchy head that has the vaguest tint of yellow.

Aroma is sweet: cane sugar? Traces of wood and a fleeting glimpse of earthy pepper.

Flavor is agreeable enough; powdery Belgian yeast up front, followed by a modest sweetness. The fresh (as in not dried) peppery flavor is back with a trace of spice heat. Low bitterness on finish as pepper note fades away.

Moderately dry on the finish.

More drinkable than I had been led to believe by others who had tried it, but far from a classic. ABV not an issue in flavor, though it sneaked up on me for that very reason.
___

Consumed on January 20th, 2013 at a private Vertical Epic tasting.

Beer pours a murky medium brown with close to zero carbonation.

Aroma is honey sweet, offset by a touch of spicy pepper.

Flavor is sweet malts. Chili flavor is notable, though not intense. A trace of heat and vanishingly bitter on the finish.

Mouthfeel - medium-bodied and still.

Drinkability was lower than the fresh version; I guess the carbonation helped move the pepper along when it was fresh.

Had on tap multiple times served in Chimay goblets and tulip glasses.

Appearance: Deep amber-brown beer with amber highlights, a thin tan head. Leaves a fair bit of weak lacing down the glass. A very appealing beer.

Smell: The smell is of candi sugar, with some dark cherries, and a slight bit of pepper (perhaps jalepeno or cayenne). There is a sweet malt aroma as well.

Taste: The taste is difficult to describe because there are so many individual flavors that I could pick out, but the beer tastes nothing like ay one of them. The flavor is complex, deep, and rich, and it is exceptionally satisfying. I pick up on bits of the peppers, some fruity flavors, big rich sweet malts, and a strong vanilla flavor that blends beautifully with the peppers, evening them out a bit and giving great balance to the beer.

Mouthfeel: Simply exceptional. Full, thick , creamy and superb. Moderate carbonation for the style, but the feel is silky and the finish is smooth.

Overall: An outstanding beer that I would encourage everyone to try if the opportunity arises before this beer is gone. I was lucky enough to also get a bottle of the 2011 an 2010 (properly cellared) in a bottle shop, so I feel spoiled. Anyway, I hope you all get the chance to enjoy this beer for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

A- Hazy apricot brew with small bubbles continuously rising. Frothy cream colored head that lasts for a bit and leaves a nice ring. Lacing left down the sides.

S- Notes of spice, cinnamon and a bit of chile pepper. There's a candy caramel malt underneath with some candy sugar.

T- Sweet candy apple, and some dark fruit. A nice but of heat and chili flavor, rounding out with cinnamon. Not overly "spicy", by that I mean powders which is good for me. Chili blends well with the brew.

M- Smooth medium bodied brew with mid to high level carbonation. Little bit of heat in the throat more so from the chili then the abv.

O- Nice offering from stone and my first if the verticals. I got on this boat a tad late, but the series seems very interesting from my sole experience with 11.

Poured on tap at Mad Mex into a snifter glass. Looks clear ruby red with little head as served to me. Smells a bit too bubble gum like with some faint cinnamon, some residual sweetness, and a touch of the peppers. IMO, too much bubble gum in the nose. Flavor is more complex and favorable as the cinnamon, peppers, and malts play a nice dance nicely interweaving with one another. Feels rather light for 9.4 ABV, and the alcohol is barely noticeable. A nice effort. I would be curious to see what this one is like in another year or two. Glad to have tried it.

Raisin reddish brown in color. Poured with a short beige foam that dissipated quickly, but left lots of sticky lacings on the glass. Spicy, sweet aromas with a caramel malt undertone. Thick, rich feel with dense, lazy carbonation. Unique spicy pepper flavor up front with sweet caramel malt beneath. Dark fruit and cinnamon flavors thru the middle to the end. Finishes semi-dry with a funky sweet and spicy aftertaste.

Draft serving into a chalice for $3 during happy hour. Sampled 12/1/11.

A: Slow rising 1 finger head, light brown in color, foamy, very loosely compacted and quick to disappear. The body has a very attractive garnetty plum color. Very still looking with 85% opacity. Despite the beautiful hue, the appearance isn't that great overall. No lacing.

S: Up front, the nose brings in some smokiness and perceived heat from charred peppers and alcohol. Light fragrance of cinnamon. The background aroma is classic BSDA, albeit very much underlying.

T: The flavor echoes the nose. Ancho chile or chipotle-like heat and flavor mixes with the savoriness of cinnamon. Sweetness from the typical dark fruits usually associated with BSDAs. Raisins, sweet plum, dates and perhaps even a little cherry and strawberry provide the backdrop. Perhaps a dusting of cocoa powder as well.

M: Tight, crispy carbonation with the bubbles carrying through until the finish, keeping it relatively clean. Medium-light on the tongue. Sweet, yet the dryness increases throughout each individual sip.

O: Worth trying even though I didn't particularly like it.

On-tap at Prime 16 into a 3/4 pint glass.

A: Clear, bright orange-russet body under a finger of creamy off-white head; ok retention, light lace. Nice.

S: Interesting. Piquant mixture of estery yeast and pepper. Nice and spicy, pleasantly fruity, and mildly alcoholic. Enjoyable.

T: Standardly Belgian-esque up front, with breadiness, apple/pear esters, and some mildly medicinal qualities leading up to a delightful chili finish. I love the spice, and wish it were more prevalent.

M: Solid medium body, moderate carbonation. Simple and pleasant.

O: I wasn't expecting much out of this one based on other reviews, and made a point to try a sample before ordering a glass. While it didn't really blow me away, I found it entirely pleasant. The pepper gave it some great spiciness, but never overpowered the standard Belgiany yeastiness. Enjoyable.

Cheers!

On-tap at the Distillery in Savannah, GA.

Pours a dark mahogany with a dense, creamy white head that settles to a thick cap. Fairly mild aromas of caramel malt, bread, cinnamon, and some spice. Not getting the chilies. More sweet, bready malt with a nice dosing of cinnamon. The green chili character comes in about midway on the palate, and gets stronger from there as you drink more. Very green chili-like, kinda like a nice salsa verde. Mouthfeel is fairly crisp, with a medium body and decent carbonation. Overall a unique beer, not bad, but not something I'd drink much of. Perhaps paired with some Fish Tacos this would shine!

Had it on tap in a tulip. At first sight it was a dark reddish tone, almost amber/carmel color.

There was almost no head that quickly disappeared.

I love the taste, the chile is more move a taste then the cinnamon but still caught just a hint of it.

It finished nicely, very easy to drink. I enjoyed every last drop!
