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

UDBeernut (2856) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2012
on tap at the tremont tap house, poured into a snifter a: dark jet black color, thick 2" creamy off white head with good retnetion. Reduces to a lacing ring s: mild coffee and chocolate note, piney hops, slight toffee. Very complex and interesting. From the aroma, I am almost sure this has Chinook Hops. t: roasted malt and dark chocolate mixed with piney hop bitterness. slight alcohol as it warms. A slight let down from the aroma m&d: thick and chewy, medium bodied. lightly carbonated. Better enjoy this one at a slower pace

Aromat to kakao i kawa pomieszane z wanilią. W smaku na początku jest trochę czekolady, pźniej wchodzi całkiem solidna jak na styl goryczka. Trochę brakuje ciała, ale generalnie jest wytrawnie czekoladowo-tytoniowo. Smacznie.

beern (68) - Alabama, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Pours jet black and completely opaque with a 2-finger lingering dark tan head and an aroma of sweet malt. Tastes of malt, milk chocolate and cocoa with a very mild finish hint of balanced sweetness and hops. The palate is viscous and full bodied and then some with minimal carbonation.

Cerveza no muy equilibrada, destacando de primeras su graduacin para luego dejar amargor, matando el resto de posibles sabores.

Bottle. Black with medium brown head. Aroma is simple, but pleasant - chocolate and pralines, some fruity tones, mostly plums Taste is bitter, semi-dry. Again chocolate and pralines, alcohol, touch of coffee and fruits. Full body, low carbonation. Strange alcohol taste in finish.
Good, its for slow drinking sip by sip.

335 ml bottle from Greenwich Union. Pours black with large, fine, lasting brown head. Aroma is moistly of plum and licorice, some wood present. Taste starts off sweet, ripe fruits, middle is plum and finish is perfect dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, oily texture, lasting bitter aftertaste. Great beer in overall.

Acaro (59) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 23, 2017
Aroma: Caramel and chocolate Appearance: Black color with hazy liquid and brown head. Taste: heavy sweetness with some bitter notes Palate: Full body with creamy texture and flat carbonation, long bitter and sweet finish. Overall: Nice strong beer. Not for everybody: the bitter and sweet mixes are very confusing for the tastebuds. To enjoy slowly and drink without rushes.
