Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale has a very thick, foamy, beige head, a reddish-dark brown appearance, and pretty heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of brown bread and citrus juice, and the flavor is of citrus (hop oil), bitterness, brown bread, brown bread crust, and sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale finishes semi-dry, somewhat thick, not so bitter, and delicious. Overall, this is one to have.

Pour dark black, small head. Very intriguing scent. Taste starts thick, malty. It's a very complex flavor. I taste: raspberries, wheat, chocolate, coffee, honey. It's sweet, yet full-bodied. The aftertaste leaves you wanting more. Overall, this a very drinkable beer. The flavor is interesting. I went through a whole bottle without being able to put my finger on the exact flavor. I wish I would've bought two bottles!

I would certainly recommend this to a friend.

Served from a large cold bottle into a stein...this beer is definitely self-righteous!

Appearance - Extremely dark black; opaque; light, tan fluffy head; started about two fingers in depth and decreased to a finger but frothed nicely throughout the length of the beer. Very attractive appearance; my mouth is watering.

Smell - Sugary, malt-like, liquor-smell.

Taste - Tremendous surge of bitter hops on the first sip; really packs a punch; charcoal, burnt taste midway through; hops maintained their kick throughout but smoothed out nicely; thick hops malt; tremendous.

Mouthfeel - Bitter (not for the feint of heart) yet comfortable and smooth in its own way...

Overall - This is a tremendous ale; if you like a strong, hoppy beer this is the one for you; Stone proves why it is a hop-heads fantasy. I strongly recommend this one and will seek it out again.

A - Solid dark black and red body, with three fingers of super dense caramel tan head. Tons of lacing along the glass.

S - Strong sugary toffee malts.

T - Deep smokey malts upfront, washing away to pine and floral hops along with a huge punch of alcohol which all linger in the aftertaste leaving your mouth feeling warm and fuzzy.

M - Medium/full body with moderate amount of very fine carbonation. The texture is slightly sticky but slick enough to not last too long.

O - What a great beer to ring in the fall season. It's deep, dark, bitter, complex, balanced, what more can I say. I can't wait to be rocking this around a campfire, and it's got the ABV to keep me warm.
