Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: azdback on 09-27-2013

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Poured on tap into tulip (in San Diego).
A: Pours a very dark brown with essentially no head.
S: Sweet floral notes mix with dry bitter chocolate and roast malt. Interesting...and quite nice.
T: Honey and floral notes hit first quickly followed by dry bitter chocolate and dark roast malt. Follows aroma closely.
M: Medium body. Dryly sweet and bitter. Fairly smooth and lingers nicely on the palate for a bit.
D: Overall an interesting and solid brew. I like the thought process and the balance of delicately sweet and darker bitter notes.
