Marble Imperial Porter growler into Stone IRS glass

Body is black with a pure depth that allows no light through, with the exception of some dark brown highlighting around the edges. The head is a couple fingers deep of medium brown that has decent retention with a string of lace.

Aroma kicks out of the glass during the pour. Deep molasses, dark cherries, roasted malt, medium roast coffee, a hint of alcohol, faint anise. Big stuff, smells a bit malty sweet with a nice roasty balance.

Body is a good bit lighter than what the nose lead me to believe. Much of the roasted quality is subdued and replaced by a prominent dark fruit (mainly dark cherries and blackberries) that give this an old school Baltic Porter style tang and kick. Not sour by any means, but with a definite 'zing' to it. A couple layers under all this are the roasted flavors that were showing force in the nose, with a touch of light roast coffee, black malt, light molasses, roasted nuts, and milk chocolate. Finishes rather clean.

Mouthfeel is actually a touch lighter than I was expecting, but not at all too light. Good body with a low carbonation.

Great drinkability. A pretty high ABV that is actually masked pretty well, only giving a bit of warmth and spice that blends into the brew rather than kicking you in the face. The flavor is high shelf quality with a moderate body, making for a surprisingly easy drinking beer that has a bit too much alcohol for its (and my) own good. I've yet to be disapointed by Marble, and this one is by far their best offering to date.
