I had a couple of these at Marble Brewery's Imperial Stout release party yesterday (11-20-13).

The beer came in a tulip-shaped glass (13 oz.)

The beer had a perfect, finger thick, khaki-colored head over a beautiful pour of dark, oil-like liquid. The head was chewy and pillow-like and persisted for about a minute before dissipating.

The beer's smell was immediately deep, dark malts with some oakinesss to boot. The high abv of 11% is very well masked.

The beer has lots of different tastes, with the dark malt and chocolate notes hitting my palate first. There's a slight, bourbon-like booziness, hints of plum and coffee and a lingering cocoa taste at the finish.

Though the booze is present, it's not overbearing or burning. The beer has a very viscous, smooth feel to it. It drinks far too easily for the high alcohol content, so one must be careful to pace themselves or set a limit.

This is a superb beer and one I'll need to get more and more of over these winter months.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a deep ebony color with a quickly fading, mocha head that leaves a ring of lacing.

Smells of chocolate, vanilla, and molasses notes.

Tastes of bourbon notes off the bat leading into a nice roasted malt character. Vanilla and a slight oaken character come through first. This then leads into a plethora of dark malt flavors. Chocolate, coffee, anise, figs, and molasses come through backed up by some brown sugar sweetness. Touches of dark caramel come through before a warm ending.

Mouthfeel is full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is a very tasty bourbon aged stout with plenty to like about it.
