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

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Dark with a milky brown head. Nose is chocolate and fruity sweetness. Flavor is bitter chocolate, lots of hops. Some sourness. Finishes very dry. Leaves kind of a weird film in the mouth.

nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Bottle. Dark dark espresso brown with a thick tan head. Huge malts and hops in the aroma, chocolate, coffee, smoke, alcohol, slgihtly salty, cherries, slight wood notes. Flavor is strong coffee and malts up front but diminishes quickly with a fairly bitter but bland finish. Oily and metallic at the end also, not so great. On the verge of being a really great beer, but didnít make it for me.
