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 donít show it the proper respect. IBUís: 85

Deep brownish with black shades and nice floffy head. Caramel, malt, mosvado sugar, toasted and a strange vanille-kind of taste. Nice carbonation! Cool Label!

Pours to an espresso roast appearance with that foamy golden brown head. Delicious aromas of black currant, vanilla and cognac. Tart flavors of more fruit and licorice, chocolate hints, walnuts, and lightly roasted coffee. Sort of a strawberries and cream general mouthfeeling, with alcohol well disguised. Flavorful and a tad too sweet, right there on the brink of excellence, but only the brink.

[Bottle from Beermouth tasted together with the hop-bros at Jessí cosy inn] Thisone was one of the highlights that eve (top 3) because of it welldone body, nice fruitflavors, roastcremy and mediumhoppy aftertaste. Even the label deserves much attention!!!

Bottle. Dark dark espresso brown with a thick tan head. Huge malts and hops in the aroma, chocolate, coffee, smoke, alcohol, slgihtly salty, cherries, slight wood notes. Flavor is strong coffee and malts up front but diminishes quickly with a fairly bitter but bland finish. Oily and metallic at the end also, not so great. On the verge of being a really great beer, but didnít make it for me.

Pours black with a nice deep tan head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, and a bit of smokiness. The flavors are a combination of chocolate and cofee with some dark fruit and slight alcohol finish.

Good stuff. Black pour with dark tan head. Very smokey aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and a little fruit and hops. Strong flavor without the any alcohol bite.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2007 this is my second of three flying dog that i have tried and is definetly better than the barley wine. pours a dark black with not much of a black brown head that was extinct after a minute small lacing. has a medium body and the smell is of smokey malt. the taste is of smokey malt with a little sweet taste to it but not much of anything else. not bad though for my first imperial porter.

Dark. Black and oily. Smells of espresso and a little hops. Hides the alcohol in the taste. Has a lot in common with an impy stout, but more smoky flavor.

Dark and very smooth.An unbelievably well balanced beer with none of the overpowering alcohol you usually associate with this strength. Lots of flavours with a slight smokiness. Realy excellent. Thanks to Tuckers Maltings for bringing this one to the U.K.
