Stone Vertical Epic 12.12.12.

CIMG7079

This is the final release in the vertical epic series. This Belgian Dark features a spice addition that appears to be Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Allspice. Let’s see how it goes.

Stats:
Belgian Strong Dark Ale. 9.0% ABV. California. Limited Release.

Dark brown to black. Barely any head on this beer, but a little bit of a dark tan head appears when poured vigorously.

Hint of spices. It’s a bit christmas-y if that makes sense. Got some allspice, cinnamon, clove kinda thing going on.

Mouthfeel is actually fairly heavily carbonated. Decent body though.

The first thing that jumps out to me is the spices, but also a surprisingly amount of roast. The roast flavor actually over-powers this beer. The spices are alright, not over-the-top. A hint of alcohol on the finish.

I’m pretty meh on this beer. I find it fairly off balanced and boring. Maybe it’ll get better with age? 83 points.
