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 don’t show it the proper respect. IBU’s: 85

jamestulloch (3304) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle. Black yeast-flecked soup with a thick tan head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of black cherry, vanilla, pot puri and melted chocolate. Flavour of peanut shells, dark chocolate and wood with a bitter, peppery finish. Medium body with a creamy texture. Soft fizz. An ugly beer, but it’s rich and flavoursome. It definitely has some Black IPA qualities.

Zlotta (1850) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2016
0.355 l bottle from ’Slijterij ’t Fust’ (Hoorn), best before September 2016. Pitch black with a large, stable, creamy, light brown head. Roasty-malty, slightly fruity-resiny aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, some licorice, tropical fruits and pine. Sweetish-malty, roasty and fruity-resiny taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, tropical fruits and pine, followed by a long, roasty, rather bitter and resiny finish. Full body, creamy and effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Intense flavours, good mouthfeel and satisfying, great stuff! Leans heavily towards an Imperial BIPA.

nybol (1364) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Tykflydende kommer den ud af flasken, med en flot brunlig skumhat. Den har ingen rigtig smag af mange af de ting der ofte er i stout/porter, næ den smager af det den er. Tjære! En rigtig god øl man nok kun skal have en af.

Gurthnar (4791) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear very dark colour, with massive and lasting brown head. Lots of roasted malt, but also assertive hoppiness, coming through as mostly grassy, zesty. Taste is high in sweetness and bitterness at the same time... the two somehow coexist harmonically, both kicking your ass at the same time. Moderate to light high carbonation helps with the drinkability of this thick bodied beast. Truly an interesting and exquisite beer.
