COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like Hunter S. Thompson...Gonzo Imperial Porter is deep and complex. This turbo charged version of the Road Dog Porter is mysteriously dark with a rich malty body, intense roasted flavors, and a surprisingly unique hop kick. With Gonzo weighing in at 9.2% ABV, it will bite you in the ass if you donít show it the proper respect. IBUís: 85

Doerak, Delft. Shaker. Donkerbruin, creme kleine kop. Koffie, melkchocolade, zoete geroosterde mout. Peperig. Hoppig. Mooi.

Maakun (2344) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2015
Tap at Doerak. Almost black with creamy tan head. Lots of fresh espresso and dark chocolate, maple syrup, loads of roasted malts, light herbs, marzipan, light chili hotness. Light sweet and medium roasted bitterness. Medium bodied with slick feel and medium carbonation with velvety feel. Nice.

Moebbels (613) - FINLAND - DEC 16, 2015
A truly pitch black body with a nice, well-lasting light brown head. Nose has notes of raw chokolate, roasted malts, roasted coffee beans and sherry. Taste is sweet with a hefty roastiness and a strong, lingering bitter finish. Medium creamy carbonation and hefty palate. Quite nice and well balanced big porter with nice aromas and flavors.

rondphoto (3338) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 10, 2015
on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Clear very dark mahogany brown, brown head, sheets of lace. Taste is toasted caramel malt that turns to big hops on the swallow. All is not lost though, because the malt, though challenged, is up to the task, and remains through the finish. Big, complex, and balanced. A winner.

rikstar (1759) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2015
0,355l fles bij Mitra Enkhuizen vandaan. Zwart met een volle, maar redelijk snel slinkende bruine kraag. geur met karamel ketjap en cacao. heerlijk vol mondgevoel met een zoete aandronk, karamel en biscuit, maar wordt redelijk snel omgevormd richting sojasaus en in de afdronk ook ruimte voor meer bittere chocolade en zelfs drop. Deze is echt super qua balans en complexiteit. Hop is aanwezig maar ook mooi iets op de achtergrond.

355ml bottle from Beerhawk. Big tan head, great lacing. Dark black body. Nose is predominantly sweet, creamy, over roasted nuts and chocolate. Flavour is rich creamy chocolate, coffee, nuts, hints of dark berries, good bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is rich, creamy, luxurious. Really thick. Brilliant stuff.

zimbo (834) - SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2015
From old notes. The bitterness and boldness doesnít really work for me here. Looks good, smells fine but the palate just isnít as balanced or congruous as it should be. Not bad though.

akoeninger (596) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Tap at tipsy cow. Dark brown. Aroma of coffee, stone fruit, hops. Flavor is lots of roasted notes, some coffee, booze, pine. The hops are very apparent in the finish, can catch you off guard. Very good

Svart öl med brunt skum. Doft av malt, mörk choklad, mörk rostat kaffe, sötma, lite alkohol. Smak i samma bana med en trevlig beska och eftersmak. Balanserad och god öl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
