From notes...

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adam's Perfect Pint

The head poured tan, 2 finger thick. Left alone to settle the head left impressive lacing with a thin but persistent cap. The beer itself was dark brown with hues of red.
The smell had hints of roasted coffee, mocha, floral hops, and something I can't quite put my finger on though I'm fairly sure I have smelt it in other Rogue beers. It almost has an ocean/ beach quality to it. The yeast perhaps?
The taste led off with a blast of carbonation followed by the mocha coffee malt backbone. The hops follow soon after and take you through to the dry finish. The aftertaste has a mocha hop resiny feeling to it.
The feel is a bit light though I wouldn't call it watery. Carbonation may be dialed up a hair too much but nothing serious. Like most porters they can be drank in pairs before it's time to move on.

Poured dark, opaque, with a frothy light brown head. Good head retention and some lacing. Can see a dark red color at the side of the glass.

The smell has hints of chocolate.

Chocolate in the taste as well, but not overwhelmingly so. More carbonation than I would expect from a beer this dark. And it seems a little more watery than expected.

Great mouthfeel. Doesn't coat the mouth like other porters I've had.

I could have a couple of these per sitting but wouldn't drink a six pack at one time. If it were on draft I think it would taste much better. In fact I've had it on draft before but it's been a while.
