Hunter S. Thompson once said, "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro." Consider this our professional version of Gonzo Imperial Porter. Aged and seasoned for three months in wood barrels from our neighbors at Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, this ale has a well-balanced taste and abundance of character. The taste will remind you of sweet chocolate, dry oak, and smooth whiskey with a memorable, velvety mouthfeel.

Svart i färgen. Doftar koncentrerad julmust, dill, kaffe mm. Mycket komplex smak, rund och välbalanserad med rostade toner, ekfat, liten fin beska, alkoholen helt inbäddad. Bland det godaste jag druckit i ölväg!!!! Testade mot den icke fatlagrade varianten som var väldigt god, men lagringen har gjort underverk! 2009-08-29

It pours dark brown with a brown head. It has woody overtones with roast, cocoa, slight coffee, and a hint of dark fruit.

Draft. Pours deep black and the aroma is whiskey and chocolate. The palate is creamy and full. The taste is chocolate malt and hints of vanilla and esspeso. Then a finish of whiskey. Awesome porter

Erzengel (9613) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2017
Intense deep beginning. Wood, plums, cherries. Intense deep with the alcohol warming but not rough. Very deep, viscous, thick. Intense deep aromafull, dried fruit, wood, fascinating!

willisread (3695) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 22, 2017
2012 version draft at Gambrinus. Pours a deep brown to black with a finger of eggshell colored foam. Cinnamon, cardamom, cacao nib and milk chocolate nose. Creamy on the palate, milk chocolate. Wow, super smooth, vanilla some bourbon mid-palate. Light chilli, more spice and bourbon on the finish. Killer beer and still has good legs at 5 years old.

Een straffe porter. Dit zware bier is gitzwart en heeft een aroma van geroosterde koffiebonen. In de smaak komt deze sensatie terug. Ook chocolade en een licht zoete toon zijn aanwezig. Het bitter wint het van het zoet.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours a jet black. Aromas of espresso/chocolate and roasted malts. Taste dark roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate malt with a nice bitter bite.
