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

MrSquash (155) - Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2017
June 2005 bottle. Actually aged really nicely over the past 12 years. Lots of dark fruit up front paired with toffee and caramel malt. Pitch black in color with a milk chocolate head and low retention. Taste starts out sticky sweet with moderate roast and plum/prune. Really nice!

Aroma of coffee beans and spice. Pours a dark black with notable particulates and a small tan head. Taste of coffee and dark chocolate with a bitter savory finish. Epic IP.

Vuelvo a beberla años después y sigue enamorándome. Negra, densa, opaca, sedosa, llena de notas torrefactas a cacao, café y azúcar caramelizado, frutas maduras y cítricos y afrutados de los lupulos. El alcohol aparece al final, con un postgusto seco y una sensación bien reconfortante

Dark pour (amber hues), tan head. Nose is dark roasted malt. Bittersweet. Middle is molasses, coffee grinds, and nice dark malt. Finish is bittersweet, and a little smoky.

Originally rated on 1/19/2009. Gonzo pours a deep black body with a thick tan head that left heavy lace. Aromas of dark fruits like plum, and fig, floral hops, some chocolate malts. Flavor was of alcohol, when that fades you are left with a bitter, dry slightly chocolate and floral aftertaste. The alcohol is a little too dominant but overall it is a pretty good beer that i would try again.

tightslice (1307) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine in Mountain View, CA. Aroma is dark cocoa / chocolate, burnt sugar, licorice. Taste is dark dry cocoa, chewy burnt sugary malts, some dark fruits. This beer is complex and nuanced...one of the best Imp Porters I’ve had.

homeini (270) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 28, 2017
Butelka do 13.05.2017. W aromacie wyraźna czekolada, kawa, lekkie rodzynki, lekka wanilia. W smaku czekolada, intensywna paloność, lekko kwaskowate, wyraźna wanilia, mocna goryczka przede wszystkim od paloności trochę żywiczna. Czarne nieprzejrzyste, średnio obfita ciemno beżowa piana, redukuje się do cienkiej warstwy. Wysycenie zdecydowanie za wysokie, przez to w odbiorze brakuje ciała. Alkohol w aromacie ukryty, ale w smaku wyczuwalny.

En riktigt komplex och god imperial porter. Svårt att pinpointa några exakta smaker pga dess komplexitet. En riktigt välgjord öl.

4.4
19Oracolo78 (205) - ITALY - APR 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2017 Birra dal colore nero. Schiuma marrone, fine e persistente. Al naso malto toststo e caffè. Al palato corposa, con note di caffe, liquirizia, cioccolato e malto tostato. Un birra eccelente mediamente carbonata con un grado alcolico elevato che gli dona un carattere liquoroso ma per niente stucchevole. Da non perdere...
