Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: JohnGalt1 on 10-02-2010

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

This ninth edition of our Stone Vertical Epic Ale series takes two interesting left turns. A Belgian-style golden triple is the starting point of this beer, but the first left turn is nearly immediate with the addition of dried chamomile flowers, triticale, and Belgian amber candi sugar. The second, and rather unusual left turn takes us half an hour up the road from Stone to Temecula courtesy of the addition of just-pressed Muscat, Gewurztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc grapes from our friends at South Coast Winery. As the Stone Vertical Epic Ale series has moved through the calendar, we found that the brewing schedule for a 10.10.10 release coincided nicely with the grape harvest, neatly providing an interesting twist in this epic ale.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From the aged 22 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on February 23, 2013.

It pours a highly carbonated amber color with a small head and a little lacing.

The aroma is pretty solid with Belgian yeast, Belgian candied sugar, baked pale malts, and toffee. Not as pungent as I might have expected but it is three years old.

The body is smooth and medium-full.

The taste has a decent roastiness to it along with bread and a low bitterness. While I did enjoy this I was not able to try it when it was fresh in 2010 so I expect time has mellowed this one.

Poured into my Tripel Karmeliet tulip glass a burnt orange tinged medium golden witha fluffy one finger white head atop that left no trace of lace behind as it settled.White grape aromas along with a bit of funk,and sweetish alcohol.The mouthfeel is a bit sharp in the back end,prickly going down.Again big white grape juice (not wine) flavors up front with a some residual toastiness,the funk is subdued,a ginger and clove flavor becomes more noticeable as I drink more.Its pretty good,I guess I might like it more but Iam not a huge fan of the style,still not a bad beer for the new VE.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Dark golden with brillant clarity. The white head dissipates fairly quickly but never doesn't completely go away leaving a thin film on top along with a ring of soapy bubbles around the outside of the glass.

S: The aroma is of grape and pepper with a bit of a wine-like note. Some of the moderately-light peppery aroma is coming from the Gewurztraminer grapes along with the balacne from the Belgian yeast. The fruitiness of the yeast is there but it blends with the light fruit aromas of the wine grapes.

T: The grapes a really showcased in the flavor year there is still a good malt presence and some hops bitterness. There is a moderate amount of spice. The balance is slightly towards the bitter but there is a light amount of sweetness that seems to be grape derived. The finish is moderately dry with a wine-like aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied with moderately-strong carbonation and a bit crisp on the palate.

O: There beer taste about the way I had imagined the blend of a white wine and Belgian Strong would taste. It's drinking pretty well now and can age for several more years to come.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Hazy golden color, low carbonation, spare head with big bubbles...faded very rapidly leaving only light lace on top.

S - Spicy with Belgian phenols and a slight mustiness, almost like a farmhouse ale.

T - Clean light malt character, the spices come on strong but not overly so, floral hops with a smooth bitterness that finishes with some lemon at the end. This is a complex beer that is well balanced and I think could use a bit more aging to reach it's true potential. Regardless, I think it is quite excellent right now, and will only get better.

M - Nice and this like a Belgian pale should be, there is a definite warmth from the alcohol, a bit more carbonation would be nice to finish.

D - For being such a big beer, it is light bodied, complex but balanced, and quite smooth. Very enjoyable.

This beer sat in my cellar for a few months because I wasn't that sure I wanted to drink it. The information on the bottle just didn't sound that enticing. Finally tried it, and very glad that I did.
In a tulip glass the beer was a gold color with a small white head. Very still, little carbonation.
Very fruity aroma, tea in the background.
Great taste: cotton candy, grapes (very much so), tea. On the tart side.
I liked how it progressed from sweet to tart in my mouth.
Would buy this again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Cloudy, pale color, almost white head settling and lacing nicely.

Smells like a funky, strong belgian. Hints of tart fruit, wet paper towel, faint spice.

Mild up front, then a blast of spice and clove followed by an astringent winey finish. The added grape juice really comes through at the end and lingers in the aftertaste.

If I had to guess the abv, I probably wouldn't have said quite as high as 9.5%, but I can believe it.

It's not terrible, but unless you've een making a tradition of trying every year, I wouldn't go out of your way for it.

A - Pours a hazy golden brown with very little head and no pacing to speak of. Some sediment in the glass.

S - White grape aroma with big floral chamomile notes. Some lemon and Belgian yeast, with a faint funk.

T - Starts with a bit of tart grape, followed by chamomile, lemon, Belgian yeast that adds a slight funk, and some faint sweet notes.

M - Medium mouthfeel is pretty crisp and finishes with a nice earthy funk.

O - Definitely not something I would want every day, but I enjoyed this more than I thought I might after reading the description. The taste didn't live up to the aroma, however.

22oz brown bottle with a vintage date on the label.

LOOK: Bright golden and clear, crackling froth leaves a decent lacing.

SMELL: Vinous, musk, bready, estery, earthy, tart fruit, mint, faint phenols, grape skin

TASTE: Smooth, creamy, warming esters, grape skin tannin, biscuity grain, spicy, sleepy time, walnuts, kiwi, star fruit, tart, herbal hop, mildly bitter, peppery

Complex is the least I can say. Deft hand with the grapes in this brew and a big brew at that. A solid VE, hoping to run into this one again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle dispenses a hazy golden body with a medium sized ivory head that retains well before dropping into patch and sheet lacing.

Quite a unique aroma. Floral chamomile, fruity esters that impart a note of overripe pears, crushed white grapes, and an overall perfumey incense character.

Medium full body has a low medium carbonation. A bit syrupy at times.

Taste has white grapeskins, Belgian candy sugar, some wine acidity, oaky vanilla, charred fragrant wood, and herbal chamomile. Alcohol is hidden very well. Complex and enjoyable.

Certainly the most challenging of the VE series I can recall. Almost like drinking liquid incense. A good candidate for aging.

Bomber, $7.99 @ DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY.

Pours slightly hazed medium ginger infused golden, delicate, off white and fine head, no big development nor retention, goes quickly to a minor collar, film and fine and again minor bits of lace.

On the nose, I'm picking up notes of tea, mint, earth, cloves and slight coriander.

Interesting and different to say the least. More mint, more tea, some ginger and yet even more strange spice.

First few sips I was wondering what the heck was going on with this one, after a few more I was seeing the light and enjoying this more and more. Getting some light wood notes as well as some wine like characteristics.

Complex, flavorful, interesting and intriguing. A must try for Belgian lovers, a must put away a few bottles for a few years for fans of Stone and their magical mystery vertical tour...

On tap at the Common Table in Dallas.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is a nice mix of white wine grapes, Belgian yeast, biscuit malt and a lot of sugary sweetness. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of notes that remind me of a tripel - candy sugar, citrus, biscuit malt and alcohol - along with a lot of white wine notes. There is a strong grape presence to the flavor which is expected in this beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Appearance - 2 finger head, head was white and fluffy, some decent lacing, golden ale colour, very hazy, some good carbonation levels.

Smell - banana, cloves, earthy tones, faint caramel and lemon zest.

taste - interesting, found there to be some banana, cloves, dry taste coming from metallic nodes, slight bitterness from the lemon zest.

mouthfeel - added carbonation makes the beer a little more dry and brings fwd the metallic nodes again.

drinkability - good beer shared with SpinRSX! He man'd up and decided to share this beer with me, thanks! Would stock again, wouldnt go hunting it down.

10.10.10 Vertical Epic Ale (opened 17 March 2013), opens to a sweet Belgian nose, full of the typical banana and clove notes, but with additional layers of sweet flowers (think rose petal), honeysuckle, white pepper, rye bread, caramel, and an assortment of fruit esters, including orange, apricot, berry, cherry, and even a touch of pineapple. The sugars in here are very pronounced, the cherry and berry mixing especially well with the banana, forming hard candy aromas. Grains add an additional base layer of floury baguette, toast crust, and biscuit. Hops add a touch of lemon and sweet pink grapefruit, as well as a smidgen of pine. As a whole, the nose is excellent, full of flowers and sweet sugars, with just enough of a countering peppery bread and piney hop layer to keep the beer from being cloying. The result is a delicate, but surprisingly potent aroma that takes the natural Belgian notes and amplifies and catalyzes them into a delicious mélange that begs to be sipped.

On the tongue, the beer opens with, again the typical Belgian banana and clove notes, just a touch sour, but quickly adds to these a lovely layer of sugars, including orange, berry, cherry, and apricot fruit esters, as well as honeysuckle, candi sugar, and wildflower honey. There's also a strong touch of white grape juice and red grape skins, which add to the slight sourness. The grains bring in touches of white pepper and rye bread (from the triticale, I’d guess), as well as floury baguette, toast crust, and biscuit. Hops bring in a bit of lemon and sweet pink grapefruit, as well as pine. The profile is mainly geared toward the sweet end of the scale, but there’s a surprisingly strong peppery note in here that mixes well with everything, mingling nicely with the cloves and breads. The 9.5% ABV is very nicely masked, and it says much of the beer that subsequent sips do little to change the overall flavor. The aftertaste is a continuation of the main flavors, with a little more sourness and piney, lemony hops, and lingers on the tongue for a good while. Mouthfeel is medium, and carbonation is medium to medium-high, even after over two years of bottle aging.

Overall, this is a very nice beer, and a worthy addition to Stone’s Epic series, taking what would be, by itself, a very nice Belgian and ramping it up with a series of very nicely blended and well-balanced flavors. This is a beer that would find a welcome reception as an annual release, and, if you can find it, is well worth trying.

Pours a hazy, straw color. Two-ginger white head is pretty puffy with slight retention and lacing.

Smells bready, yeasty, with some spice, citrus and banana.

The taste follows the aroma, delivering the common characteristics of the style. Reminiscent of Piraat, but slightly more mellow and creamy, a tad more rock candy stickiness, the alcohol buried slightly more.

Though the typical flavors are there, it seems to lack some complexity of other Belgian Pales. It was over-chilled by the carryout, but even upon warming, it seemed that the yeasty sweetness dominated other aspects of the profile.

Maybe it will work well in the 11 beer Vertical tasting progression, but is far from sensational on it's own.

22oz bomber pulled from the fridge and allowed to warm up for roughly a half hour before opening. poured into a bulb style glass.

pours out a hazy golden orange color with about a one finger of soapy white head that faded to pretty much nothing within 5 minutes or so. poor retention and pretty much no lace. very beautiful looking color to the body of the beer however.

in the aroma there is bubblegum, flouride, and a bit of spice from the yeast, solvent alcohol, lots of crisp fruit, grapes primarily with bits of apple, and hints of pale malt and candied sugars. as the beer warms, the aroma becomes a little more focused towards alcohol.

lots of belgian flavors mingling with fruity grape flavors. very vinious and that seems to come out more as it warms and the carbonation dwindles. bubblegum, flouride like belgian yeast. crisp apple, pear, and lots of white grapes. pale malts, just a bit of alcohol noticable with a warming, slightly sweet wine like finish. light spice.

heavy bodied with ample carbonation at first that settles out towards the end of the glass. as far as mouthfeel goes, it feels like an authentic belgian. a very dry finish, most likely from the grape juice.

one glass would prolly be enough, but i didnt have too much of a problem finishing the bottle.

overall, out of the 3 epics ive had including this one, id have to say this is my least favorite. but like the last 3, i do have a second bottle to age and im interested to see how that goes. if your not into trying every one of them and aging them, i wouldnt suggest this one.

A: Poured into my pint glass, this brew pour a Belgium gold with a fluffy white capped head that is way to quick to dissipate.

S: Belgium spice and floral notes. Fresh fruit and clove.

T: Wow, this one is great. Fresh fruit, grapes, grapefruit, a light European hop tinge, spiciness from the yeast, complete Belgium inspired goodness. This brew is very earthy, and almost drinks like a strong, pail Saison. Complex, tasty, earthy.

Mf: Mouthfeel is good, but not as full as a good Belgium...almost here though, smooth and carbonation is excellent.

D: Above average drinkability. I feel good drinking this at this time of night, but I definitely will sleep well.

Overall, what a good take on a Belgium style. Glad to age this out. Thanks Stone!

Brilliant golden body, completely able to see through it, forms a bright off white head rising well above the rim of my La Fin du Monde chalice. Aroma has some nice earthy grape seed and tart hints of grape juice with the chammomile herbal grassiness to balance things out. If you focus on the tart vinous qualities these thing dries out much like a wine, with herbal and alcoholic edges swaying it back and forth. As it warms a bit the pineapple tropical fruit starts really kickin in the nose, a very nice effect if your patient and sip on this one. Very much a white wine experience going on here, with some buttery dryness finishing like a wine. These two worlds are unique when coming together but with all of the elements going on I'm not sure if harmony is ever found between them. Another element is the Belgian yeast strain producing some phenolic esters full of pineapple and mild citrus as well, definitely complex this is the type of beer that will impress your wine friends. Mouthfeel will weight on you this becomes a bear of a beer with 9.5% alcohol kicking nothing burns on the palate but I wouldn't say it's well hidden, definitely provides a warmth in your chest. The acidity level definitely reminds me of a wine versus a beer, overall drinkability wasn't as bad as the draft experience but I'm still on the fence of whether or not I could go for this beer again. I respect the creativitiy but sometimes the concept doesn't always work, you'll have to judge it for yourself.

This beer pours a clear light golden color, with a thin white head. The head fades fast, leaving no lace.

This beer has a pleasent spicy aroma. I smell some cloves, grains of paradise, and coriander. It has a slight citrus aroma as well, maybe from orange peel? A mild earthy yeast is present. I can also detect an ever so slight winelike aroma.

This beer tastes like it smells. Spicy with some earthy flavors. Alcohol content is hidden entirely in the flavor of this one.

This beer is full bodied. It leaves a spicy aftertaste. Carbonation is low, but it has a little age on it.

This beer would make a decent session beer. It tastes good and would be easy to drink. the problem is the alcohol content. It is high in alcohol, and that could pose a problem.

Overall: this is another fine beer to add to the Vertical Epic collection. I will keep two bottles for 121212.

Popped my '09 a couple nights ago...on to the next.

Golden and opaque honey hue, very little head and barely any carbonation throughout. Looks kinda flat.

I remember trying this at a Stone tasting a couple summers ago when it was first released and recall it being much more lively than what sits in front of me. Aromas are faint, but detectable. Sweet with fragrances of flowers and Muscat wine grapes. Reminds me a bit of DFH Midas Touch.

Whole lotta grape...almost like cheap wine. I don't think time really did this one any favors. I know honey wasn't used in the recipe, but it still tastes very prevalent, probably can attribute that to the Belgian sugar used.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and a bit sticky. I almost wish it was lighter to be honest...This beer just feels confused.

I'm not really sure how I feel about this. After the stellar '09 I can't help but feel let down by this offering.

On-tap at the Porter Beer Bar in Atlanta.

Pours a slightly hazy honey-golden color with a 1.5-finger white head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of smooth light malts with good amounts of medium fruits - pears mostly. Also present are large amounts of floral aromas from the chamomile.

Tastes similar to how it smells, although the grapes make a much stronger appearance than in the aroma. Crisp light malt flavors kick things off and are joined almost immediately by syrupy pear flavors. Midway through the sip the flavor profile dries out quite a bit with the addition of white grape flavors. Slight amounts of earthy and herbal notes make a brief appearance before fading out into a crisp and mildly sweet ending.

Mouthfeel is very good. It's got a very smooth thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is good. I had no problems finishing my glass and could have another.

Overall I was a fan of this beer but the grape flavors were a bit rough around the edges. I'd be willing to bet this will smooth out nicely by December 12, 2012 but if you can't wait that long it's worth a shot now.

Drank on 2/1/2013
(Served in a chalice)
A- This beer pours a deep orange body with a wall of microbubbles and a thin cloud of snow white head swirling around. The second pour turned the beer very hazy.

S- The clean yeasty aroma had some mead qualities with a white grape hint and some triple hints in the yeast and sugar hints when it opened up.

T- This beer has a dry bitey white grape skin flavor with a dry finish and a tangy aftertaste. There is a fruit Muscat grape flavor that never grows as big as I would like but is present, and some floral yeast hints come through aswell. There is an odd tomato quality to the grape skins flavor that grows as it opens.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a tight fizz and no real alcohol heat noticed.

O- This beer comes together more as it opens up but the flavor is muted and never really becomes what I hoped. The Muscat grapes in a Triple sounds delicious and there are hints of greatness in there, but it remains a bit of an under achiever.

Drank 10/20/2010
(Served in a chalice)
A- This beer has a slightly hazy orange body with a sea of tiny bubbles swirling to the surface. There is a bubbly white head that last for a few sips and then fades to a thick ring of bubbles.
S- The white grapes and yeasty aroma has a soft phenolic spice to it. As the beer warms the grapes take on more of a white wine flavor that is very dry and more of the s. blanc grapes than the others. The wine tannins really dry out the aroma.
T- There is a tartness and pungent green hop flavor that turns more green grapefruit rind as it opens up. The dry finish has a light fruity hint and lots of white wine tannins but it is soon covered by fizz.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a big scrubbing fizz in the finish.
D- This beer is pretty clean if flavor and aroma and the fizz covers up more of it. There are some nice tripel qualities but the grapes really dry it out to much. I didn't get much from the Muscat and Gewurztraminer grapes but I have only tasted them in desert wines and candy so I was expecting them to be a bit sweeter. The tannin flavor makes it almost sulfury in the dryness. I will be interested to see how this one ages?

A-Rich golden pour with a rather poor head retention and virtually non-existent lacing. Surprisingly clear brew in the first pour and slight hazing in the second.

S-Yeast, clove and banana and a hint of white wine.

T-The white wine characteristics really shine in this one, which would be great if I liked white wine. Think Tripel mixed with champagne and you get the idea. Like some of the others in this series this is a clean crisp beer with a dry astringent finish. Slightly sweet with a hint of clove and pepper playing into the mix, the ABV seems very well hidden yet this is slightly disappointing in its lack of complexity...something that maybe some cellaring will cure. The basic concept reminds me of DFH Red and White...

M-Effervescent carbonation and slightly creamy mouthfeel.

D-Interesting, but in my book a bit lackluster, but then again I have not been blown away by the few VE series beers that I have tried. Glad I tried it...will buy another to age along with the other VE's in the basement, but I'll take a Double Bastard any day over this.

As a natural and true wine lover, I found this to be somewhat amiss. The pour was nice, the aroma was easy and somewhat not pronounced.
What lacked for me was the taste. It didnt have the feel I was expecting. It was a bit too soft, perhaps because of the grapes that were being used. I think in making a beer, some more aggressive grapes might have been used. But who am I to challenge the brew master!
While tasting it, it was almost like a wine, not a beer, so from that point of view, I said, OK, it was easy to drink

Review from notes, 11/13/10.

A: Pours a hazy golden/amber color with a one finger head that dissipated within a few minutes. Not a lot of lacing either.

S: Lots of wheat and on the floral side. Get grapes for sure and a little bit of spice as well. Also some apple.

T: I get a lot of belgian yeast and sweet grapes. White grapes and apple are very present and a little bit of grainy malts to finish it. There is a little spiciness throughout.

M/D: Medium bodied with a good bit of carbonation. Has a dry finish, alcohol hidden well. Overall, I was a bit underwhelmed. My first in the series, maybe 2011 will be better for my palate.
