Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale Secondary Review by Z.P. & D.P.

Stone
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.
Overall- 3.0

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

Troegs
Flying Mouflan
ABV – 9.3%

Review by Z.P.
Appearance – Caramel brown.
Smell – Hoppy, straight up hops.
Taste – Sweet and Malty at the start. The middle is a little rusty almost metallic, but it isn’t unpleasant. The end is a lingering hop flavor.
Mouthfeel – Heavy.
Drinkability – It tastes a bit heavy but it is good. The alcohol shines through at the middle.
Closing Notes – It is pretty good, it can apparently be cellared I would like to try that if I can get my hands on another bottle at some point.
Overall- 3.5
