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

Gfro (11) - Gateshead, Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Ominously dark liquid. Smells of leathered raisons in a coffee shop. Tastes like a burnt chocolate brownie and alcohol. Sweetly bitter finish. A lingerer.

youdictategood (467) - Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Pours black with a dark khaki head. Aroma of coffee, figs, chestnuts, and a little bit of hops. Taste is nice and complex for the style - coffee and chocolate up front, then a good balance of malts and hops. Gets pretty bite-y for the finish. Don’t really taste the ABV.

Skvader (126) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2012
Gives a nice light brown head which only remains as a haze throughout. Aroma has dark chocolate and wood. Taste is smokey and coarse yet somewhat sweet as strong coffee with brown sugar. Aftertaste is first a sharp bitterness than almonds and similar nuts.

Yorker (1932) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2012
35 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and hops. Flavour is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and some hops that give the beer a bitter finish.

Leini (1551) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013
330ml bottle. Dark brown body with a brown tainted low head. A nice straightforward IP. Perhaps a bit too straight on.

Fritz123 (1533) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Draft at Coffee District in Delray Beach. Goblet. Extreme dark brown opaque with thin tan head. Moderate lacing throughout. Aroma of rich malts and nuts. Taste was a little less complex than I was expecting. Roasted malt comes through, slight bitter hops, dark fruits and a hint of coffee. Smooth finish. Little boozie. A b minus in my book.

conway (2210) - - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate and roasted malt with a hint of hops. Taste is very hoppy for the style. Citrusy and piney with some umami and chocolate lingering in the finish. Slightly thin but silky mouthfeel with strong carbonation. Pretty good but the hops are slightly overwhelming. Could use more balance.
