COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Were 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 very interesting brew. Pours deep brown with moderate carbonation. Aroma is that of an ipa but the hops dont dominate as much as a traditional ipa (also some maltiness and toastiness on the nose). Taste is quite good (like a chocolate chip cookie being washed down with an ipa. Quite a good balance in this brew which, in combination with the smooth mouthfee, makes it an enjoyable and easy to drink brew. Overall I wasnt blown away by it but it was quite good.

nefarious (220) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Murky dark brown pur with a cream colored carbonated fluffy head. Chocolate, fruits and a malty earthy flavor that I dont much care for.....a little odd. Bitter finish mild hops. Im dissapointed by this I think I may have a had bad bottle cause stone is usually solid. If I get the chance I would like to try it again

AKORN (220) - Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours black with a small tan head. Hoppy and malty aroma. Charred malt and citrus bitterness, pine, light coffee taste. Heavy feel and lingering bitterness on the tongue. Good beer

Has the trademark smell of a good Imperial IPA, looks just like Coke on the pour. Fantastic toasty chocolate/caramel taste with a hoppy finish, Stone gets it right again, the arrogant bastards!

This is a really good beer. Its sort of a hybrid between a Porter and an IPA. Beautiful dark color with a tight head that takes forever to fade out. Smells fairly hoppy but also kind of dark and smoky as well. Very interesting. Hoppy and smoky. Sounds weird together but thats the best way I can describe it. Very oily mouthfeel that leads to an extended bitterness at the end. Not unpleasant but doesnt really do anything for the experience either. I liked the beer and if I can find it, I will be getting this one again. Stone rocks...

hophead21112 (218) - Louisville, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2009
Opaque black pour with "garnet edge" (BrotherGrendel), tan head with good retention and lacing. Hops all over the aroma, could smell them as soon as I cracked open the bottle. Roasted malty sweetness present and a little alcohol, but very hop-forward on the nose. Medium body with appropriate carbonation. Extremely complex brew with citrus and pine at the beginning and roasted sweet malt at the middle. Good balance. Bitter finish with a touch of alcohol, but very well hidden overall. Great cold weather brew for the hop heads!

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Tap @ Parkway. Dark red-brown pour with a light tan head leaving moderate lace. Spruce and cut-grass hop nose leading into an Arrogant Bastard-like body. Solid, medium-heavy body with whisky, chocolate and coffee notes. Bitter and umami, with a touch of sweetness in the beginning and middle. Half a pint is adequate, but thats not a bad thing.

Drank from bottle. Smells of wood, chocolate, coffee, nuts, and hops. Tastes of resin, pine, chocolate, citrus. Heavy carbonation, Heavy mouth feel. Absolutely amazing

BritAlesRule (216) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Pours a deep dark chocolate. Hop presence immediate in the nose, almost bizarrely for something this dark. Mouthfeel is medium to full on. Some hints of chocolate and dark fruits, but Im always looking for something more from the American Hop Slam gang and this doesnt quite do it for me.
