Days of the Beer, January 27

The beer for today is Stone 06.06.06 Vertical Epic.

On January 27, 1968, Michael Allan Patton was born in Eureka, California. Patton is a singer, songwriter, composer and instrumentalist, best known as the lead singer of the band Faith No More from 1988 to 1998. He has also been the lead vocalist for Mr. bungle, Tomahawk, Lovage, Fantômas, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Peeping Tom.

With Patton at the lead, Faith No More released four albums, The Real Thing, Angel Dust, King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime, and Album of the Year. The Real Thing was the bands biggest commercial success. It had the song Epic.

As to the beer:

Stone Brewing Company is located in Escondido, California. Which is a short 748 mile drive from Eureka.
APPEARANCE: Dark brown to black with a tan head. AROMA: Fruity, phenolic yeast notes with dark malt roastiness. FLAVOR: Clove, smooth roasted malt, mild spiciness, and some hop bitterness. A dry finish with apparent alcohol. PALATE: Medium to full-bodied, good carbonation…no astringency. OVERALL: Very full and complex…not sure how it will develop.
So, for Mike Patton, grab yourself an Epic Ale.
