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.

TBone (16250) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 25, 2009
Bottled (vintage September 2007, Vasa session). Deep ruby-brown color, creamy beige head, some lace. Aroma is mix of yeast, hops and bread - like sniffing dirty socks (Miksu said that it is oxided hops). Crisp carbonation. Sticky hops in powerful body. Finish has licorice and grapefruit juice. Good beer.

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
A: The pour is black in color with lots of visual carbonation, a fluffy tan head, and excellent lacing. S: The nose is actually fairly complex for an IPA style beer. Lots of juicy grapefruit aromas with some roasted malt and a resinous pine quality. T: The flavor is just as good as the nose. Lots of citrus up front with the roasted malt coming out in the middle. The piney bitterness makes for a great finish. M: Lots of body on this one, and while it is strong, the alcohol does not overpower any part of this beer. D: Im so glad they decided to remake their 11th Anniversary as it is one of my favorite Stone beers. I pick this one up on a pretty regular basis.

Oakes (15821) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2007
Murky dark brown. Smells like a good Black Toque. All toasty and leafy, then dark & chewy. Big anise finish. What I like about this is the size and sweetness of the body, it really provides a solid backdrop for the leafy hops.
