Stone Stygian Descent Returns 11/14 (Batch No 2)

imageFrom Stone:

STONE SUBLIMELY SELF-RIGHTEOUS BLACK IPA AGED IN RYE WHISKEY BARRELS & BOURBON BARRELS 2016 SERIES BATCH NO. 02

Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Black IPA practically named itself. The perfect melding of dark malts with a downright indecent amount of hops forges a complex flavor profile of assertive dark roastiness and big, bright hop notes for a singularly sublime experience.

CELLAR NOTES
Small Batch Brewer Cecil Menasco thought it would be an ingenious experiment to age our dark and deeply hopped Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Black IPA in rye whiskey barrels…and he was right. This time our small batch crew, never a self-satisfied bunch, added bourbon barrels. The result is transcendent: perfectly balanced dark chocolate, oak, dried fruit and citrus tones. As it warms, the spicy rye and sweet bourbon barrel notes complete this masterful transformation.
