I thought I missed out on this one, but was delighted to find them in abundance at my local liquor store one day. Poured this from a bomber into a pint glass. Looks pretty much like a good porter or stout should. Black, with at least a two-finger head that retained itself very well. Edges are ruby red when held up to light. Lacing sticks on the glass all the way down. Huge hop presence in the aroma. However, there is a solid dark malt presence. Pretty complex. Taste is very hoppy, of course. However, there is a solid malt backbone that makes this fairly balanced considering the huge hop presence. Mouthfeel is pretty thick, almost syrupy. Actually, "creamy" is the word that comes to mind. Carbonation is moderately high. Alcohol is a bit on the high side, but still drinkable, especially if you give this beer the time and respect it deserves.

A: Pours dark black with medium carbonation that creates a nice tan head as well as some decent lacing. Looks like what you would expect from a stout.
S: The smell is fantastic! Lots of earthy and fruity hops (grapefruit and citrus) as well as a hint of that dark (almost molasses) malt aroma.
T: This is where the beer shines... Very bitter but not so much as to deter you from drinking it. Earthy, floral, and fruity hops show through the roasted malt and peach flavor of the beer. Stone did an amazing job creating a unique style that blends together all the flavors so nicely. Very flavorful!
M: Mouthfeel is perfect. Medium to full body, creamy but very drinkable. The finish isn't dry and those flavors stick to your tastebuds for a while after you sip. Carbonation is spot on with the flavor.
O: Overall this is probably my favorite beer of the ones I've tried so far. Definitely one that you can try more than once and enjoy just as much, if not more, as the last time. Stone has made a beer that somehow has a strong and intense flavor that makes you wish you had another bottle when you're done!
