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.

crossovert (11818) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2011
650ml bomber bottle. best by 06/29/10. Pours a dense dark brown/black with hints of ruby when held to light and a foamy, long lasting tan head. It is a bit of an ambiguous color, it looks like a stout. It smells sweet and hoppy, but it isnt that fragrant. The taste is bitter and hoppy, with some slight coffee character. It is slightly metallic as well. The hops are piney and mix with the metallicness to create a flavor im not too keen on. The so called black IPAs seem to be more gimmicks than anything, it seems like no brewers have taken the time to make the perfect recipe for it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-02-2010 00:46:54

Rune (11653) - Troms, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2015
One-third sample, keg at The 23 Club. Near black coloured body. Fair fawn-coloured head, mostly remaining. Smell of mid-sweet vanilla, dark fruits and grainy malts. Rich taste profile of vanilla chocolate, coffee and liquorice followed by dark fruity bitterness to a prolonged ending. Smooth and warming on the swallow. Full bodied. Delicious (Liverpool 31.01.2015).

Sammy (11514) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 22, 2007
a very good IPA with added thickness from chocolate malt. Pours dark and foamy, hoppy, ahh! the taste of citrus C-hop, and the c-hop aroma. Full mouthfeel. Delightful as a meal in itself.

Bottle from mar, thanks! you are the man! Pours a nearly black color with a thin whitish head. Aroma if full of citrus hops and some good malt character. Taste is full of grapfruit peel and a good clean malt backbone. Pouring a black IPA is prety weird and cool.
