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

winstontaylorba (7) - Opelousas, Louisiana, USA - DEC 11, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2019 I decided to pair this brew with some Boston cream pie. It didn’t disappoint. The head had an interestingly roasted quality to it that was absolutely delicious. I always say that dark beers have some extremely tasty heads. Gonzo tastes of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, vanilla & creamy goodness. Sure it’s pretty bitter, but the creamy body balances it out excellently. Also, I drank this amazing beer whilst sitting outside on a cold and windy December afternoon here in south Louisiana. I also played some dungeon synth to further the chilly ambiance of this experience. Yes, I am a complete nerd. This is an excellent brew for cold weather. I highly recommend bringing this to that family Christmas function you’re not thrilled to be attending. This should help get you through it!

2OLD4BS (259) - west windsor, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2019 Very strong potent flavors of chocolate and coffee. Strong alcohol as you might expect given the 9.2% ABV. It tastes more like stout maybe that is why it is called Imperial Porter. Boozy chocolate coffee aftertaste.

LocalAromas14 (22) - GREECE - OCT 29, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2019 Very complex taste and very intense. Dark chocolate with every sip and very strong whiskey aftertaste. Due to high ABV you won't notice the IBUs.

kaserov (2321) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 23, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2019 Bottle. BB: 13/02/2020. Black. Brown head, two fingers, good retention, good lacing. Some brown sediment. Difficult to see the carbonation through the darkness. Quite fizzy palate. Oily but there's too much carbonation for me. Aroma is ash, charcoal, tar, hints of hops giving slightly citric impressions at first. Lots of ash, charcoal and tar in mouth. Some liquorice. Even some cola hints in the first few sips. Hops are present in the middle of the sip and in the finish. Some caramel sweetness but pretty restrained. Medium bitterness at the end with soft alcohol. Bitterness stays in mouth for a while with ash notes. Not sure about this one. It's not bad but there's nothing here that invites me to try again. Two things: I don't know if the age is a problem with this beer; it seems rather industrial, and this is happening to me recently with almost each beer from this brewery.

R4N5H (1838) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2019 12oz bottle in the Virgin Club Lounge, Dulles Airport on 09-May-2019. Dark brown in colour with a small beige coloured head. Aroma of cocao nibs and pine. Full body with medium carbonation. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, liquorice and floral hops. Smooth rich and hoppy imperial stout.

NobleSampler19 (2873) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 18, 2019
UPDATED: APR 18, 2019 Ein Bier mit ordentlich Wumms. Aber einem geschmacklich gutem. Auf jeden Fall sollte man es nicht zum Essen trinken sonderen eher als Abschluss eines schweren Tages oder einem schwerem Essen in kleinen Maßen genießen. Auch sollte es nicht allzu kalt sein. Dann entfalten sich die schönen schokoladigen Aromen und der ölige Charakter. Dazu ein Schuss Pfeffer und etwas Kirsche. Hat mir äußerst gut gefallen.

nutjes (2863) - Zwevegem, BELGIUM - APR 15, 2019
UPDATED: APR 15, 2019 Proefglas van 35,5cl-fles. U: Zwart met een licht bruine schuimkraag. G: Beetje hoppig, wat milky, tikje geroosterd en chocolade. S: Zoet met een lichte moutbitterheid. Milky, geroosterd en chocolade. Alcoholwarmte. M: Volmondig met matige carbonatie.
