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.

Pours dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, pine and hint of chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, piney, citrus and grape finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

deyholla (11224) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma had a combination of sweet fruits and citrus fruits. The citrus fruits tended to dominate the nose with some piney notes underneath. The flavor was full of hops which lead to a piney taste with citrus undertones.

daknole (11041) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2008
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.

hopscotch (11030) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 Bottle (tried again at RBSG 08) This beer rocks!... The wet Simcoe hops definitely kicked this baby’s flavor up a notch... from 3.8 to 4.0... Origninal rating... Clear, deep, dark mahogany ale with a large, creamy, beige head. Great retention. Big-time grapefruit smacks me right in the nose. Lesser, burnt notes of charcoal and ash. Theres dark chocolate in here as well, but make no mistake, the hops run the show. Sweet caramel and chocolate flavor right up front; then tannic, abrasive, pine needle and grapefruit pith bitterness. Full-bodied and astringent with medium carbonation. Burnt, bitter-as-hell, dry-as-hell finish. Thanks to growler for sending this one my way!

DocLock (10574) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Bottle from Capones. Deep brownish black head with big, 3-finger off-white head. Aroma of heavy wet hops, dark malt...the aroma is a tad Gonzoish and Alpha Klausy in this. The taste is rich, dark malty, decently complex, with a lot of hop flavors matching the malt. This one is good, but did not blow me away.
