Before the pandemic, Val and I were over in the Flemington area one weekend. We found a really cute farmer’s market and stopped at Lone Eagle. I had never been there before, but it had a well laid out taproom and lots of selections on tap. We took a few different beers home from them, this being one of them.
Style: Russian Imperial Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Introducing our Russian Imperial Stout. This Imperial Stout is loaded with dark chocolate and roast. This is exploding with deep, rich flavors.”
Random: We had to get the cats a new bed because the one they had wouldn’t come clean. We had to get them medium sized dog beds because they all insist on sleeping together in the bay window.
The beer poured with a finger and a half of light brown head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was dark brown, almost black with no visible carbonation. The nose was filled with roasted malts, dark chocolate and some vanilla. There was a decent amount of booze on the nose. The taste started with roasted malts and dark chocolate. There was cocoa as well as some smoke. The booze came through pretty strongly. There was some vanilla as well as a toffee sweetness to the beer. The body was thick and chewy with moderate carbonation. It had a sticky finish with dark chocolate and cocoa. This was a decent beer that had some nice flavors and would make a decent night-ending beer. I wish the alcohol was a bit more integrated, though.
