When Megan O'Leary Parisi (Bluejacket) 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. 9.6%abv profile - February 13, 2014

Dark malty bitter yet standard porter nothing special

Dark brown color, like dirty motor oil. Taste is kind of sweet and floral, some chocolate, with a little smoky finish. A more floral porter rather than sweet is cool.

Malty and a slight taste of chocolate with a smooth almost sweet finish.

This is a good porter. Silky smooth, and floral, but it works. Nice coffee taste and balanced dry finish. Bottle, November 2013.

Huge coffee smell. Nice warm taste, thick with a light head. Nice hidden alcohol, coffee and chocolate and spices do good work. Nice to have an imperial porter that's stays in class and doesn't become a stout

The avocado honey and jasmine really let this finish with a honey-sweet taste. The beer is probably worth two pints, but no more!

Middle of the road porter with a mild palate. I expect more from stone
