Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale
McGrath's in Harrisburg tapped a keg of Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale and I quickly ordered a glass, as my love for Stone Brewing Company has grown exponentially this year. The beer pours a dark brown color with a foamy tan head. The aroma consists of toasted malts, chocolate, and a good amount of citrus hops. The taste is toasted malts with grapefruit finish. There is also a healthy dose of chocolate and coffee, but the bitterness is eliminated by the citrus hops. The alcohol content is 8.7% ABV. The beer was surprisingly hoppy, but overall very delicious. The hops in the beer were excellent, and the chocolate and grapefruit really played nicely together.
