Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass, I don't know the encoded date but this bottle might be pretty old 9349B6 (December of 2009??). Note I bought this not to long ago so age must be from the store, assuming this is as old as I think.
This pours a nice very dark brown almost black color, there are definite brown edges but its black in the center, this has a very nice foamy mocha colored head with good retention. The smells are of coco and roasted malts, gone are the hop smells mentioned in the other posts. The feel is medium. The taste is of roasted malts and hops, the hop taste and bitterness is definitely present. Overall a decent porter and one I'll try again if I can find it fresher.

Poured into a Libby Poter/Stout glass.
A - Extremely dark brown to black body. 1 Finger head that is a dark orange/creamy caramel color. Head dissipates after about a minute and leaves splotchy lacing that is still active with bubbles and a large amount of lacing around the edge of the glass.
S - Light caramel, cooked orange , coffee, butter, vanilla, creamy, reminds me of a stout smell more than a porter, along the lines of a guiness. Hints of hops.
T - Starts incredibly creamy, once again reminded me of a guiness, but it followed with a spiciness like pepper and orange rind. Ends with moderate coffee and hop notes. Really nice flavor.
M - Starts off very full and rich, which I enjoy. Turns into mild acid, but is always accompanied by a creamy and bubbly lacing.
O - A very, very good beer, and one of the best porters I've ever had. I bought this beer from one of my favorite places because it was on sale. I was not expecting something this great for how much I paid for it, and I might go back and grab some more that were on sale.
