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

Pours black with thin brown head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, and floral hops. Full bodied. Chocolatey on the tongue. No alcohol present. Finishes sweet with malted milk flavor.

Pours black with a tan head. Roasted malts, coffee, and hop finish for the aroma and taste. Good drinking porter.

blegh. Very meh. For a strong porter I cant understand for the life of me why it tasted weaker than most other porters. Its not a bad porter per say, but its really just very underwhelming.

bierkitty (167) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2011
Sable brown with with good tan head. Roasty, thick and molassasy with a smoothness that hides the 9.2 % alcohol. A bit of astringency became evident as it warmed, but still it was a yummy treat.

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.

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.

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.
