Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale

Now this is more like it.  I was sorely disappointed in the bottle of Stone Levitation Ale I had a few weeks back.  It flat out sucked, and Stone usually does wonderful things with beer.  The Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale restores my faith in Stone, the universe, and everything.  This poured a deep mahogany brown, almost black, with a minimal tan head.  It had a very nice pine and grapefruit hop flavor, backed up by some toasted malt with a dark chocolate aftertaste.  Clocks in at 8.7% ABV, but you do not notice the alcohol at all. I don’t know whether to call this a dark IPA or a hoppy porter, but I am calling it a 7/10.
