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 OLeary 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, Oregons 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.

_angst_ (4802) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2017
Black pour with a huge frothy and creamy mocha head. Roast and red wine oxidation nose with dusty cocoa and dark bread malt. Sweet, malty, slightly roasty and herbal taste. Soft, round and velvety mouthfeel. Nose is over the top on the oxidation but the taste is still very nice with roast, bread, chocolate and herbal notes.

LearninBeer (559) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2016
The aroma is coffee, roasty, malty. Pours almost black with light brown head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is sweet then a little bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very good!!
