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.

A well designed bottle. The aroma is pine with a hint of citrus. An appealing dark color with a thin tan head when poured. Nice lacing. The taste is resin and a hint of toffee that quickly is over-powered by a strong pine after-taste. The after-taste is so overpowering and lingering that it was largely the cause of a lower rating. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 ounce bottle that poured a dark brown color, aromas of grassy hops, coffee, some chocolate, and pine. Flavor is the same as the aromas, with a smidge of dark fruit and apricots coming through the coffee, pine and chocolate flavors.

Very dark with a slight hoppy scent. The malts are more noticeable in the brewís aroma & taste. The bitterness has a bite here. It sticks around after a taste. The great thing is that the bitterness isnít unpleasant. I also taste and smell wood notes in this ale. This is a very fine drink.

Very citrusy nose, however it tastes exactly like Iím drinking a liquid Sucret Sore Throat lozenge. Not worth $7.85 for a big bottle.

OzarkElmo (295) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2013 Pours thin black with moderate beige head. Citrus & floral on the nose with a pleasing taste that did not include smoke. Good for what it is, just not my combination of styles preference.

This beer starts out mild and then turns up the volume quickly! Balanced and true.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Dark brown-black and opaque, a little wine, a little roast and coke aroma, Bitter, malty, very bitter and a little coffee taste. Full body, dry finish. Tasty.

suprchunk (2029) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Dark, dark brown colored pour with ruby highlights. Small tan head that lasts. Leaves a bit of lacing behind. Aroma is mostly hops. Some notes of orange. Creamy chocolate taste followed up with a nice citrus note of hops. Some hints of vanilla. Bitter in the back, but just a bit. Nice beer.
