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

Keil (171) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Tap. Pours jet black. Nice foamy brown head with good lacing. Intense roast, chocolate character. Subtle citrus hop in the background. Taste is very roasted malt, chocolate in the background. Heavy finish. Alcohol burn and a nice bitterness. Really coats your mouth in a good way. Heavy beer with lots of flavor. A favorite.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle. Poured a very muddled black color, rather "thick" looking pour, almost like a watery molasses. An aroma of blackened malts, sweet sugar and smoked malts, kind of "off-putting". I had to let this beer warm up a little to enjoy al the wonderful flavors. A very thick sipper. Lots of super charged chocolate malts with hints of vanilla, peat, and a light hoppiness that blends well with all the malt. A very thick bodied beer.

scottmc (167) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2007
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.
