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

Kick-you-in-the-balls beer, just like HST would have liked it! Rich smokey chocolate flavors with substantial malt body. Interesting hop notes that differ from most porters. Every sip hits you as hard as the last. For true porter fans only!

Uit de fles geschonken. Pikzwart bier. Geur en smaak van geroosterde mout, hop, chocola, drop. Mooie volle en complexe porter, heerlijk.

mariuspoenari (1214) - 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.

tomekboniek (450) - 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.
