Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

22oz bottle, bottled 9/21/2013, poured into a snifter

A- pours black in color, nearly opaque with a small fizzy off-white head that reduces to a ring around the edge, no lacing

S- dark roasted malt with some charred woodsy aroma, dark chocolate with a hint of coffee, definitely picking up a sweetness from the honey and the jasmine gives some floral aromas on the finish

T- the base porter is roasty with some dark chocolate and charred malt flavors, hint of coffee bitterness. The mid-palate turns sweet with flavors of fig and tobacco. As it nears the finish, the honey sweetness kicks in and lasts long into the linger, the jasmine gives slight floral notes on the finish as well

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a slightly warming, creamy finish

O- a robust base porter that works nicely with the addition of the honey sweetness

Dark brown beer with a one finger high white-beige head.

Nose: Floral notes, vanilla, honey, caramel and milk.

Taste: Flower, honey, syrup and caramel. Sweet taste and almoust no chocolate and dark bread that I persumed.

Body: Medium to full body with medium carbonation. The bitterness balance the sweetness.
I like this beer!
