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

hackobock (3286) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a thick beige head. Smells of cocoa, some coffee, roasted malt, some sweetness to it as well but lacks hop aroma. Overall the aroma was not that distinct as expected. Medium body, low/medium carbonation. The coffee notes are more distinct when drinking, the finishing bitterness is mellow but long-lasting.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2012
Pours black with a small biege. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt and a fair bit of booze. Very sweet flavour, chocolate predominates with a background woody note with a fainter hint of alcohol. Nice and sweet.

Smeade (80) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
S: pitch black, thick, chocolate head A: roasty, bittersweet chocolate, a little boozy T: coffee like bitterness, toasty, slightly unbalanced alcohol burn O: this is a good beer, but unbalanced flavors; itís worth trying, but then you should upgrade to the bourbon barrel aged version; the aging balances out the beer and makes it spectacular! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bricktop86 (761) - 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. Donít really taste the ABV.

Skvader (130) - MalmŲ, 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.
