It took a little warming to get adequate smell out of this beer, but the wait was worth it. Subtle smoky aroma with a roasted maltyness grabbing most of the attention.

It was a dark black with reds showing through when held to the light.

Tan head that recedes to a decent collar with great lacing.

Whoa! The smoke hits you in the mouth and lingers very pleasantly in the mouth.

A little carb bite on the tongue and good mouthfeel. A solid beer!

I didn't notice until just before I opened this that it has "Enjoy by 4/8/10" etched on the glass. Oops. Let's see how it aged...
I poured this 22oz bottle into my pint glass.
A: Nothing wrong here... a dark, dark brown, bordering on black hue, with a two-finger head that quickly settles to a lingering 1/4".
S: Roasted coffee, toasted grain, and a bit of woodsmoke.
T: Burnt coffee, burnt caramel, roasted malt... just right.
M: Medium to full bodied, just what I would expect for a porter and not too heavy/filling.
O: I'm a big Stone fan, and this is a winner as are most of their beers. I will certainly try another bottle that's within the brewery's suggested drinking range, though this is doing just fine 1.5 years past that date.
