Monkey Stones is a collaboration between Monkey Paw and brewer Jeremy Moynier from Stone Brewing Company. After some discussion, we decided to make a black lager, with a bit of Stone flair. This is a strong, 7.7%, black, toasty beer with attitude. Roast, toasted almonds, and a pine-filled hop aroma are first on the nose. As the beer warms up, you notice a lot of chocolate and orange, with a solid hop bite. The taste is similar, but smooth, hoppy, and delicious. This is not your typical black lager. Do you have the stones to drink it?

Dark brown in color with a creamy, dense khaki head. A moderate hoppiness to the nose with strong roasted malt and coffee aromas. A hint of licorice and dark chocolate, maybe some molasses. The hop character is a bit herbal and piney. Quite a bit of roasted malt and coffee notes on the palate with a moderate bitterness. Herbal and pine hop flavors, a bit of citrus peel, and cocoa. Nice mouthfeel, too.
