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

A good set of malts are present. Those burnt malts that great stouts and porters are brewed with. A great after meal beer. A full body is complimented with a dark, almost black head and great use of Cascade hops.

alraicercsu (166) - Ft.Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours very dark almost black with a tan head. Smells of Coffee and chocolate which plays well with suttle hop flavor. A very good imperial.

ALCOHOLNIZM (165) - WARWICK, Alabama, USA - MAY 1, 2011
NEAR BLACK DARK BROWN PORTER WITH A TAN THICK BUBBLY HEAD. NICE BUT NOT MUCH CHOCOLATE STOUT LIKE AROMA . TASTES LIKE A BUBBLY CHOCOLATE/COFFEE STOUT, 9+ ALC CONTENT IS NICELY MASKED VERY SMOOTH AND SLIGHTLY BITTER, GOOD BREW, GOOD JOB GUYS AT FLYING DOG BUT NOT QUITE ENOUGH TO MATCH UP WITH THE LEADING "DOG" IN THE GAME.

natedoggkc (164) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 25, 2007
Thanks to Gregis. Pours black with a really nice brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel. The taste is very much on the roasted malt side with some bitterness and chocolate. This is a very respectable beer in the porter family.

Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Pours deep black with good head retention. Can smell the roasted malts well on the nose. Dark and smooth on the tongue, not much carbonation but good amount of mouthfeel.

Underhook (162) - Lincoln Park, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Thick, creamy palate and a toasted, coffee taste. Super enjoyable beer. Fabulous mouthfeel stands out along with the heavy, toasted, creamy chocolate/coffee taste.

calm_dreamer (160) - GREECE - APR 7, 2012
Nice taste and smell. Medium to good aftertaste. Head doesnt stay for long, alcohol is not very tastable even though it is high.great beer over all.

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a black with a tan head. Little chunks of something floating? Aroma of chocolate. This is an interesting beer because it still managers to be a porter despite the strength. Harsh bitter and ethanol on first sip but it eventually grows on you. Very good for when you want more.

DeweyDell (159) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2007
12 oz bottle. Very dark color with a small cream colored head. Tastes almost like an imperial stout... lots of chocolate and coffee. The alcohol kind of comes through in the smell and flavor, but its not overpowering. Great beer, would buy again.
