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

USCBeerMan (109) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Bottled. Pours dark black with a very thin brown head. Powerful notes of coffee and licorice in the nose, with a fine hopping. strong aroma. Creamy mouth feel and the flavor has notes of black chocolate, roasted malt and licorice. full body, average tporter carbonation, long finish with high bitterness from Cascade hops. A light hint of alcohol is felt and warms you well. It becomes better as it warms. After all a very fine beer, even though I hoped better

DonBirnam (108) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 11, 2009
Black with red edges and a medium brown head. For some reason, it smells ’red’ to me (or maybe ’burgundy’). Enoumously sweet and rich coffee-malt flavour and a large bitter hop finish. Very smooth in the mouth. Brutal, yet complex. Very nice.

gonzo46and2 (108) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Great beer. Almost like an imperial stout in the complexity of flavor and high ABV. I picked up a 4 pack months ago and wanted to add my rating. Need to have this one again soon.

BrewCzar (108) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Bottle pours dark brown almost black with a small light brown head. Aromas of sweet dark dried fruits, cherry, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet smoke, berries, roasted malts, oak, slight chocolate, with a touch of bitter hops to finish it off.

It is alright but I can’t get excited. I just don’t like porters. Sorry. Overly strong flavor, overly strong color. If you are a porter lover knock yourself out!
