Due to our participation in at least a half a dozen collaborations each year, one might perceive Stone as the craft beer equivalent of a bee flitting indiscriminately from one brewery to the next, all the while drawing precious nectar-the expertise and creativity of those institution’ brewmasters. Another buzzy operation that gets the same rap is Bluejacket, a new, Washington, D.C.-based operation headed by industry veteran and constant collaborator Megan O’Leary Parisi. But make no mistake, Stone and Bluejacket are intensely selective about the contemporaries we invite into our brewhouses. We look for the same high level of passion and daringness to flip a beer style on its head that we employ on a baily basis. So, when 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.

    A black-brown in color. A big sudsy textured tan colored head rises above. There's some hang time in the head. It settles into a thin ringlet. Flowery in the nose. Same in the tasting, there's some bitterness mixed with a strange sweetness. Light, roasty, bold fruitiness.

    Deep dark brown pour, thinnish, slight beige head, nice lacing throughout. Toasted malts, floral floral floral in the nose and initial palate, some anise, jasmine, honey, more floral. It's just simply too floral for me in a porter. Bumping the trend here. NOT a 4.1 for me.

    A dark brown-black colored beer with a small frothy textured tan head rising above. There's some hang time on the head. Settles into a thin ringlet. Roasty, chocolate nose. Bitter chocolate, roastiness dominate the tasting. Medium bodied and tasty.

    Dark brown/black appearance. Pours about half a finger of khaki colored head that quickly dissipates to a soapy film. Immediate sweetness in the aroma in the form of dark fruits and floral/honey notes. The honey becomes even more evident as the beer warms. As the sweetness fades, more of the herbal/floral qualities come out. Some underlying roasted malt/espresso notes at the end of the nose.Very floral upfront, lots of earthy herbal and honey flavor, though much less sweet than the nose. Some slight dark fruit character in at the beginning as well (raisin/fig). Fades nicely into some more of the roasted malts, some dark chocolate and coffee flavor. Nice roasty, earthy bitterness on the finish. Alcohol taste comes out a bit more as the beer warms,very smooth going down.

    Definitely sweet leaning for stone. Chocolate, light roast, honey, and especially as it warms, some herbal/floral notes. Aroma and flavor really similar. Not mind blowing but quite good. Let it get to 55. Alcohol is masked expertly, and the beer is named well, very smooth and easy for nearly 10%.,

    22oz bottle -

    The beer pours out a deep brown body, nearly black with a creamy brown head, nice lacing, excellent hang time. Light smoke on the aroma, deep chocolate base, coffee, raisin puree and honey. Lots of stout like flavors found here, dark chocolate, earthy, roasty, black licorice and alcohol. Excellent beer.
