Sublimely Self-Righteous by Stone
22 oz bomber, poured into a typical pint glass.
Pours almost jet black in color with a half finger of head. Leaves nice lacing throughout. Beautiful American Black Ale.
Toasty, citrusy note, resiny pine scent, and plenty of hops in this one.
Bitter, piney, citrusy hops, toasted chocolate malt notes.
Mouth is slick, bitter finish, a hint of alcohol, warm going down. Medium bodied and carbonated.
Drinkability is excellent. 8.7% abv hidden well.
Once again, an excellent offering from Stone. Hop flavors and scents are complex and intense and the malt presence is the perfect counterpart.
