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

Dark black pour from bottle with no head. Small ring of tan foam around the top. Excellent smell of chocolate and roasted malts with a hint of alcohol. Taste immediately hits the alcohol but finished with a great roasty malt that lingers. I agree with rustbucket0873, it is very smooth for being so strong. Good people do indeed drink good beer. HST, you are missed, especially at Super Bowl time.

mariuspoenari (1220) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2016
33cl bottle. Pitch black pour with a medium height tan head with good retention. Smells like licorice, cocoa, roasted malts, chocolate and a bit of coffee. The taste follows the same notes, with an emphasis on roasted coffee, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Medium to full bodied, low carbonation and a roasty bitter aftertaste.

Muy buena. Sabor inicial potente, y sorprendentemente largo, pero no alcoholico. Bastante cuerpo.

tomekboniek (455) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 10, 2016
Beczka. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana beżowa, wysoka, tworzy czape piany. Aromat i smak intensywny czekoladowy, mocno palony. Na drugim planie owoce wraz z przyjemną nutą alkoholową. Średnia pełnia, która powoduje, że strasznie szybko znika ze szkła. Goryczka średnia kawowo-czekoladowo-owocowa. To co warto zauważyć, że aromatem delikatnie przypomina wersje BA. Bardzo smaczny porter w równie przyzwoitej cenie.
