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 dont show it the proper respect. IBUs: 85

Filipbeer (155) - - NOV 4, 2016
Intense black color with beige head. Good lacing but not too long. Interesting aroma. Sweet dry fruits are dominant in nose, however coffee, smoky and tobacco are the most intense notes in mouth. Top flavor. Really intense bitter taste, compensated by the sweetness from the alcohol and a full body. Very long lasting. This beer is like a beast. To drink it is a completely recomendable experience

OnTheTrail (416) - Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2016
Pours dark brown, large brown head. Aroma is malt, cola, cocoa lightly roasted coffee. Taste is rich malt, notable alcohol, bitterness, mouth puckering. No particular hops flavors - more like a porter with just the IBUs added. More chocolate notes as it warms. First Imperial Porter Ive had, not sure I like the style.

Czarne piwo, nieprzejrzyste. Piana beżowa, drobna, obfita, utrzymuje się dość długo i ładnie zdobi szkło. W zapachu kawa, paloność, czekolada, ale nie jest to wszystko bardzo wyraźne. W smaku z początku jest słodkie, czekoladowe, po chwili to przechodzi w sporą ilość kawy i paloności, żeby skończyć na przypieczonej skrce chleba. Alkohol leciutko wyczuwalny, nie przeszkadza. Posmak skrki chleba i paloności.
