COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Pours dark brown opaque with beige/light brown foamy head with good long lasting lacing. Aroma: dark malts, with notes of toadted toffee, chocolate, coffee, cocoa powder, vanilla, whisky. Flavor is very similar, even more intense with notes of chocolate, coffee beans, cocoa powder, vanilla, dark fruits esters, whisky. All ingredients are pretty well blended together.

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 (5002) - 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.

BierMeHoos (587) - Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2016
RateBeer rating #500. Where and How: My neighbor texts "Come over and let’s open a growler I just brought home" and we enjoyed this beer sitting by a fire pit. Pretty perfect evening. Appearance: Black, deep cola edge, large foam, nice head. Aroma: Nose of whisky, lightly charred malts, cocoa powder and wet wood. Taste: Strong whisky, richly sour dates, cocoa, burnt carmel and a hint of smoke. Palate: Mouthfeel is nice surprisingly carbonated for the style. Overall: Pretty amazing beer, I can only imagine what some aging could do.
