COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’re brewers whose substantial mettle and idiomatic approach to brewing allows us to consistently create works of art such as this justifiably self righteous ale. Its bitterness hits our sweet spot. Its blackness lightens our hearts. Its liquid dichotomy pulls it all together in this sublimely sacrosanct ale. Yes, we damn well know our stuff here at Stone, and it would be irresponsible of us not to acknowledge how remarkable this heavenly creation of ours is. Thus the name we are compelled to give it ... Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale ... serves as a reminder of just how good we are, in both liquid and verbal form. We re certainly not perfect. Too often, we allow our modesty to get the best of us as we re simply not inclined towards senseless braggadocio. When youre good, youre good. And when you do something great, the least you can do is acknowledge it. Others benefit from knowing. In this case, we find that we are compelled to point out how amazing this beer is that we rightly call the Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale.

First brewed in 2007 as Stone 11th Anniversary Ale, this beer was an instant hit. With us. Other folks with great taste loved it too, but we were focused on how much we liked it, and we felt it was truly sublime. That euphoria didnt last long though, as it was soon replaced with the grim reality that when we sold out of it there wouldnt be any more. For Us. And that was simply unacceptable. So, we are now blessing ourselves, and you the enlightened, with this beer on a full time basis.. Thusly, you may now revel in your own self righteousness as you see fit with this glorious example of ours. You are genuinely welcome, as it is our pleasure.

Tap at the Austin Flying Saucer. Pretty much black, with a nice medium-sized tan head. The aroma is full of piney hops, accompanied by some nice toasty malt. A nice strong bitter flavor then joins a sizable sweet malty backbone. Another really strong presentation from Stone, and a very drinkable one at that. Hope to be seeing a lot more of this one.

22oz bomber pours a dark brown and has a fantastic aroma. Taste is incredible and has a hint of chocolate malt. This almost taste like a stout and I would have a hard time telling the difference. Lays on the palate and just makes you salivate. Of all the Stone brews I have tried this is the tops. So this is why my rating is so up there.

Pours brown with a thick khaki head. Aroma is delicious citrusy hops with a nice caramel and roasted malt background. Flavor is more malt with a bitter hop finish. Similar to stone’s other ASA’s but maybe slightly more balanced. A good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2011 Hoppy smell that gains more of a chocolate malt aroma as it warms. Taste is grassy and floral hops with a slightly sweet chocolate flavor. Quite a good beer. I need to have it fresh though.

Bottle thanks to richlikebeer. Has a dark brown color to it with a little white head. Has a bit of a hoppy smell to it. Big hop taste also with a little caramel in it. Would be better if it weren’t so hoppy

Wonderful black pour with some red undertones. Thin off white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, soy and some wood. Flavor is pine, chocolate, dried fruit. Wonderful lingering bitterness after a coating mouth feel.
