Sublimely Self Righteous Black Ale is another stubbornly strong drink from Stone Brewing Co. Like many of the other brews from Stone, the Self Righteous is not for the faint of heart.
The Sublimely Self Righteous Black Ale pours to an extremely dark brown almost black body with a frothy tan head. Powerful flavors and a high ABV of 8.7% immediately introduce themselves to your taste buds. Hints of caramel notes and other sweet hops are noticeable, but quickly give way to a follow of a big malty backbone. The mouthfeel is smooth and clean with a dry hop bitterness that transcends throughout the entire drink, but yet remains very smooth.
The Sublimely Self Righteous Ale is a tough drinker but a good one. If you are a fan of Black Ales and a hoppy bite you might find this a little more geared towards you. This is a full bodied hoppy malt bomb that really packs a punch!
