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

ManVsBeer (8260) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle from Hoults Wine Merchants, Huddersfield. Black with an extremely thin head. Has a strength but its sweet dark roasted malts provide plenty of taste. It has a decent nose in this respect.

12fl oz bottle at home from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Nose is roasted malt. Body is pitch black, head is big, brownish, creamy rocky, fully lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, mild coffee, roasted malt, dried fruits, cocoa, hint of smoke, old wood. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting chocolate roasted medium to heavy bitter. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Great dessert beer, simple but tasty, nice one.

MonsterMagnet (1072) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2016 Bottle, pours black with a fluffy tan head. Loads if dark chocolate and espresso, burnt sugar, caramel, citrus, cocos, tropical fruit notes. Dry, chocolaty and pretty roasty finish with some hot flashes. Sweet and bitter, full body. Perhaps a bit too sweet and too roasty, but quite nice nonetheless.

Piwo czarne klarowne z obfita bezowa piana. W aromacie czuc palone slody, kawe i czekolade. Na drugim planie jakby nuty wedzono-dymione. W smaku raczej slodkie ze srednim wysyceniem. Goryczka na srednim poziomie, czuc w smaku palonosc, gorzka czekolade.Finisz tez kawowo-palony. Alkohol lekko rozgrzewa gardlo ale dobrze ukryty. Dosc lekkie i nawet pijalne jak na swoj styl.

Akiro (44) - ITALY - JUL 3, 2016
Degustata in bottiglia da 355 millilitri. Molto scura e torbida, schiuma persistente e spessa. Sentori di caffŤ. Al palato torta di cioccolato, bruciata! Ed uva passa. Retrogusto amaro, i 9.2 gradi non si sentono per nulla!

Dark brown, clear, great dense cream head. Aroma: sweet malt, coffee, chocolate, toast, beech smoke, caramel. Medium body, quite sweet. Foreground is sweet malty, at the back lots of coffee and roasted malts. Quite long finish with roasted malts and medium hoppy bitterness and alcohol after warming.

Uit de fles geschonken. Pikzwart bier. Geur en smaak van geroosterde mout, hop, chocola, drop. Mooie volle en complexe porter, heerlijk.
