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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A 22 oz bottle picked up at Greens on Buford Hwy

A - Pitch black with a finger of head and some carbonation left on the glass

S - coffee, jasmine and honey, and floral hops

T - Sweet, chocolate, with a HUGE honey aftertaste!!! Tasty!!

M - Thin and not much carbonation is the downfall of the mouth

O - Definitely a tasty imperial porter. Jasmine and honey are what makes it unique.

22oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Pours a black color with a tall beige head that slowly dissipates while leaving a decent amount of lacing.

Smell is of dark roasted malt, dark cocoa, with the jasmine and honey coming through as well.

Mouthfeel is silky smooth with a decently heavy body, very nice. Taste is chocolate truffles and honey up front, bringing sweetness and dark chocolate bitterness at the same time. The jasmine and calendula can be tasted in the finish, nice and subtle. Alcohol is at 9.6%, but with everything going on here, it is well hidden.

Overall, a really good imperial porter, smooth and very easy to drink.
