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

Pours a dark colour, taste and aroma is of liqourice and coffee with notable hop background, one of my all time favourite beers

adster (473) - HUNGARY - JUL 18, 2014
Koromfekete színű, sűrű teste fölé bézs színű hab telepszik. Illata komlós, inkább virágos, mint fás, üdítően friss. Az első kortyok robbanásszerűen hatnak, az egész szájat betöltő ízvilággal bír: kellemesen, nem túlságosan pörkölt zamatok keverednek egy gyógynövényes, fás karakterrel, melyben a komlóé a főszerep. Az imperial stout és porter közti határvonal számomra legalábbis ez esetben meglehetősen vékony és nem túlságosan egyértelmű, a kategóriabeli problémák helyett az ízekre összpontosítva azonban azt mindenképpen megállapíthatjuk, hogy egy határozott karakterű, ám nem túlságosan robusztus, mégis igen emlékezetes ízvilággal rendelkező főzetről van szó.

spacecube (1082) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
355ml bottle, pours black with a good tan head. Aroma is rich and as soon as the bottle opens, is there in the nose. Rich roasted coffee, chocolate and caramel. Finish is balanced by a lasting bitterness but any hop favour is overpowered by the malt backbone. Carbonation is lively (for the style). A rich full bodied porter. Lovely.

beer-yum (684) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 28, 2014
A superb example of the style. Inky dark with a full and well balanced body bursting with flavour. Only downside is it is a little too strong to enjoy in the quantities one would like.

Lawger (141) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2014 Pours thick and black with all of four fingers of thick, chocolate milk coloured head. At room temperature the aroma is fairly gutsy and deep with medium roast coffee, heated wood, herbs and licorice. Full bodied, bouncy palate, creamy and complex. Well integrated and balanced flavours, flavourful but doesn’t sprawl in any direction. Long finish without much bitterness or alcoholic taste. Very nice.

MayumiH (239) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2014
Big up to Ralph Steadman. An awesome label with a quote from Hunter S Thompson "It never got weird enough for me". Pours black with creamy coloured head. looking inviting. Well malted, well hopped, well spiced. Very enjoyable to drink.
