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.

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.
