Notes/Commercial Description:
When Meagan 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.

This poured a ruddy ruby-black in color. There’s an interesting aroma on this, with a floral jasmine character. Not estery but bright and vibrant. It’s light and velvety. Not a coffee roast but more on the delicate side. Tastes lightly floral with a bit of a hoppy bitterness and a wonderful mix of jasmine and lavender characters. The floral finish emerges as it warms. It’s intriguing and enjoyable, like a fine wine in porter form. Enjoyed my second bottle even more than the first. It’s a surprising combination but it works wonderfully.
