Stone 10.10.10 Vertical Epic is a Belgian Strong Ale from Stone Brewing Company in California. A limited edition ale (released on October 10th, 2010), 10.10.10 Vertical Epic can be found in bottles, casks, and on-tap. This 9.50% ABV ale is the ninth edition of the brewery's Stone Vertical Epic Ales, and it was brewed with dried chamomile flowers, triticale, and Belgian amber candi sugar. This ale pours out a hazy gold with a short white head that settles quickly. The nose offers chamomile and grape must, with caramel and honey malts, and candi sugar. This beer tastes of pale malts, sweet grapes, and chamomile at the finish. 10.10.10 Vertical Epic has a smooth, medium-full body with mild carbonation. This ale is a good mate for game or salmon meals. Try it in a snifter, tulip, or oversized wine glass at 50-55 degrees F. The high alcohol content makes this a good beer to store in the cellar at 40-45 degrees F.
