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

sethbreaker (179) - New York, Greater London, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Draft at Mugs Alehouse. Barrel aged version. Sweet and rich on the palate, I get brown sugar, molasses and caramel. Nice smooth mouth feel, It’s sweet but I like it

Bricktop86 (730) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - APR 7, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2012 I think this beer is a bit overrated. It has a nice flavor but the after taste is a bit off. It does get bonus points for the bottle art

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 (130) - 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 (1933) - 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 (1651) - 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.

TURDFERGUSON (4036) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Numerous bottles over the years. I was first attracted to this beer by the Hunter S Thompson association and Ralph Steadman artwork that adorns the bottle. But this is actually one of Flying Dog’s best beers. Kind of like a mix between a baltic porter and an imperial stout with lots of chocolate, and dark fruit type flavors, along with light notes of vanilla, char, and coffee.

Fritz123 (1535) - 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.
