Stone Vertical Epic 9/9/9

Stone Vertical Epic 9/9/9

Ratebeer 3.72 95th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

This is the most complex and tasty beers I have ever tasted. Normally a beer takes up a 1/2 page in my notebook. Stone Epic took up a full page of descriptions.

Taste +5

There is so much going on I must use point form.
Nose: vanilla, roast and wood, bitter chocolate.
Tastes: bitter chocolate,Stoli vanilla vodka, oak, bitter coffee, vague citrus.
The mouth feel was rich, full and oddly creamy

Aftertaste +2

All the flavours mixed together with a nice, long alcohol burn.

Alcohol Content +1 8.9%

The alcohol could be tasted and blended in well.

Value +1

Ingame Enhancement +1

Very few beers knock me on my arse flavour wise and alcohol wise.

Overall 10/10

This is a limited release; if you see it get two or three. If not you will have to wait for 10/10/10.

Are you located in Victoria? Where do you find such a fantastic variety of beers?

Sadly I picked this one up on a recent trip to Seattle. Some of the Victoria beer stores can have a great selection also. The Strath, Spinnakers, Liquor Depot or Cook Street all have great selections.
