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

355 ml bottle from Passione Birra. Dark brown with some ruby red highlights, very small light brown head. Grassy hops aroma, lots of roasted and smokey flavours, some chocolate and alchool. Very low carbonation, nice burnt, warming aftertaste. Not a summer beer for sure, but it was nice.

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

Pours a jet black with a beige head that leaves a thin ring of lace. The nose and taste are of coffee, faded hops, roast malts. I suspect this beer might be better if it were fresher.

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 don’t 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
