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

Pours a dark dark brown almost black with a darker bubbly (small bubbles) tan head that left great lacing. Aroma was sweet with chocolate, orange, light coffee, cherries and overall I was very impressed at the hop presence that came through in the aroma. Flavor had more of the hops coming through. Citrus, pine and some other various fruits that were mixed with a sweet roasty malt, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Very smooth on the palate with the alcohol well hidden. What a great hoppy Baltic Porter!

NewCastle1 (59) - Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a deep, dark redish color. with little to no head to speak of. Aroma is of coffee, chocolates, malts and maybe a touch of sour cherries? Taste is very nice. Has a nice bitter front to the beer. And then mellows out to a nice, smooth coffee finish. Coaffee, malts, chocolate, a slight bitter hop taste in there to. Not to bad.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAY 3, 2006
This one pours a pitch black body and a nice and foamy long lasting brown head. Aroma is sweet chocolaty and roasted with a pleasant coffee note and some orange and pineapple. Flavor is dominated by coffee roast with a sourish hint from the roast. Very full and chevy mouthfeel and biding on the tongue. Hoppy finish. IMO an excellent and underrated porter!

JugOPunch (83) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 1, 2006
12oz bottle: A nice aroma hops coffee and roast. Taste much the same with good balance between the coffee bitterness and the malty sweetness. No alcohol presence on the palate. A medium to full body with a smooth silky mouth feel. This is very tasty. Certainly the best Flying Dog has to offer. I’ll definitely pick this up again.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2006
Lots of hoppy fruit in this, sort of like an IPA. That makes a lot of sense to me now knowing the hop content, but I was a bit perplexed at the time. Somehow it all works well. The flavour has a great balance which is well and truly favoured to the bitter side, but stays afloat. Nice depth on the medium bodied palate, a lovely lasting aftertaste. Damn good stuff.

Cobra (1100) - - APR 27, 2006
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Loud pfftt when opened. Poured out a completely opaque dark brown color, with a volumous tan colored head. Aromas are of caramels, chocolate covered cherries, coffee, fresh malts, and a background of earthy hops. Flavors are of hot chocolate with cherry syrup in it, yeasty bread, caramel sauce. Thick, rich mouthfeel. A pleasure to drink.
