Notes/Commercial Description:
When Parisi and Stone brewmaster Mitch Steele decided to collaborate, it was essential that they tap a special individual to complete their triad of fermentation domination, and they found just that in Tonya Cornett, the brewmaster at Bend, Oregon's 10 Barrel Brewing Company. Together, they decided on a sturdy yet velvety base of imperial porter and developed a plan to celebrate the bounty of the environs in which it was produced by harvesting avocado honey, jasmine and calendula flowers (some from our very own Stone Farms) and infusing them into the beer to create something complex and uniquely Southern Californian. Consider it craft cross-pollination at its finest.

3.9/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.75

22oz. poured into a Imperial pint glass

A: Deep brown-black with a super thick cream head. No lacing apparent but really good retention through out the 45 mins it took me to kill this bomber.

S: Roasted malt, slightly sweet, hints of mint, semi sweet chocolate, and coffee. Smells like a solid porter.

T: Toasted malt, floral notes, honey, mint, green apple, agave, and something like pollen in honey. A little medicinal on the finish that keeps it from being great.

M: Really lives up to its name here. Creamy and soft on the palate. Like laying your tongue on a cloud or a pillow. Goes down like silk and coats the mouth.

O: Pretty good. A little strange but in a good way. Everything on this was great except for that medicine tang i got on the finish. Definitely worth trying and i prefer it over their regular porter but not legendary like some of their other collaborations.

Bottle

A- Pours a nice inky black, with noticeable bubbles up the sides. Decent head, light lacing on the sides and a light coating over the top 10m later.

S- Very soft at this point, roasted malts, dark chocolates, I cant smell much flowers/jasmine/honey in the glass, but Im defiantly picking it up from the bottle, everything smells pretty good.

T- The roasted malts and chocolates up front as a porter should be, next you get the sweeter side probably the honey and finishes with a slightly bitter dry feeling. Again pretty good.

M- medium to full body, has a decent thick, chewy feeling while still retaining a slippery smoothness over the tongue.

O- When I first opend it I had a hard time picking up the smell, maybe cause its been cellaring since I got it last year. After it aired out some, everything came togather nicely. The carbonation wasn't noticeable while drinking. They did a really good job with this, glad i have 3 more downstairs.
