Brewed by Monkey Paw Brewing
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?
