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

Pretty good. Tastes a bit like chocolate with a little bitterness at the finish.

Smells really sweet and chocolatey with a decent words of alcohol. Initial taste of strong burned roasted malts followed by a mix of sweetness and bitterness. After a few sips comes the chocolate flavour. Very nice.

Imperial Porter? stupid name (great label though). Nice sweetish smell.Taste again nottes of sweetness, without being cloying. The bitter kick helps in that respect a bit of cinnamon? not as overwhelming as I suspected it would be... Nice

Bottle (12 oz). Blac with a huge creamy and slowly diminishing light brown head. Good lacing. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and mineral notes. Taste is malty with chocolate, vanilla and roasted malt but with a grassy/herbal presence. Slight bitterness. Medium body. Good and complex Imperial Porter but I donít like the weird grassy presence in this one.

Pours a dark black/brown with a dark tan thick head. Aroma of dark syrup and earthy hops. The taste is initially very sweet followed by a dark roasted note and finishes with a dry bitter bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown, frothy cream coloured head. You can smell the hops and the 9,2% abv:) first taste impression is sweet, malty. The aftertaste is bitter, almost like a grapefruit. I really like that combo:) definitly a beer I will buy again the next time I find it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Certainly a great beer, with dark fruits, dark chocolates, a good deal of Port, perfectly crafted by Flying Dog. The alcohol content never gets on the way. What turns me off is the excessive dry, hoppy bitterness. I prefer much more their Road Dog Porter.
