Sublimely Self Righteous Ale
ABV – 8.7%
Review by Z.P.
Appearance – Very dark coffee color.
Smell – Sweet and Hoppy.
Taste – Very heavily roasted at the start the middle is piney and the end is a lingering hop flavor it goes on for quite a while.
Mouthfeel – Sticky.
Drinkability – One glass is enough for me.
Closing Notes – Stone always makes a quality beer. This is no exception, it just isn’t something I would want to drink all the time. The lingering hops on the end with a slight sweetness is very pleasant. There are a lot if complex flavors in this beer which are cool. Stone can be arrogant because they make awesome beer.
Review by D.P.
Appearance – Very dark, almost black.
Smell – Very strong hop presence, like sticking your face in a christmas tree.
Taste – Very unusual. All I can think of is pine pitch. Lengthy bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel – Fine.
Drinkability – Only if you’re into the bizarre.
Notes – You might as well clamp a vise-grip to your tongue…..it’s that weird. I dumped half of it out.
My call – 2.5
