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

Smells lovely and very, tastes wonderful and also quite a lot. The aftertaste lingers long long time. A little dryness I know of but trouble me not much. Clearly one of the best porter that I have tasted.

DonGregorio (58) - POLAND - NOV 27, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2016 Bottle. Black beer with large light brown head, mostly lasting. Aroma of dark chocolate, dried fruits, plums, cocoa, with faint vanilla, coffee and resin notes - noble, malty with a touch of hops. Taste is really enjoyable, medium to heavy sweet, chocolate with a touch of dried fruits, followed by light to medium bitterness - roasted, coffee and resin. Some roasted aftertaste. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Deep and delicious.

Pours pitch black with a medium tan head that dissipates instantly, leaving a thin espresso-like coating. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, dark fruits, hops and alcohol. Taste is bitter moka coffee, roasted bread, licorice. Full bodied, oily, viscous texture, bitter-sour, alcoholic finish.

Poured very dark and with a heavy,oily viscosity and a frothy, tan head. Aroma of sweet, roasted malt and very dark chocolate. Flavour of alcoholic coffee and roast malt with a dry, lingering aftertaste.

datrael (295) - Krakw, POLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Otwarte miesiąc po terminie. W aromacie bardzo przyjemne nuty deserowej czekolady, pralin, dobrej kawy, kakao, wyraźne nuty wanilii, gdzieś tam także likier czekoladowy, wszystko bardzo szlachetne i przyjemne. W wyglądzie czarne jak listopadowa noc, ktrą akurat mamy, piana beżowa, obfita, zdobiąca szkło. W smaku melanoidyny, gorzka czekolada, kakao, nieco słodyczy kontrowanej goryczką jak po wypiciu mocnej kawy, z każdym łykiem lekko rozgrzewające, w posmaku nieco wanilii. Ciało konkretne, gęste, degustacyjne, jest tu też nieco takiej agresywności i ostrej goryczki. Oglnie smaczny, wyrazisty i złożony imperial porter, bardzo dobre piwo.

kajser27 (1482) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 13, 2016
Black colored, medium+ creamy tan head, nice lacing and long lasting. Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, some coffee, bit dark fruit and noticeable alcohol kick. Taste is medium+ sweet chocolate and roasted malt, some coffee, bit caramel, light dark fruit, some alcohol with noticeable warmth, medium- bitterness. Full- bodied, soft carbonation, creamy. Excellent, if the alcohol was only less pronounced it would be amazing. (bottle, Pivoljub, Ljubljana)

alteregoo (1074) - POLAND - NOV 9, 2016
Piana średnio oczkowa, spora i średnio trwała. Barwa prawie czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat to kompilacja ciemnych słodw i chmielu - czekolada, prażone ziarno i żywica. W smaku płsłodkie, analogicznie jak w zapachu, dodatkowo prażony karmel, sypkie kakao, lekka popiołowość i pikantność w posmaku. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, ziołowo palono żywiczna. Wysycenie średnie, odrobinę za wysokie, ładnie ukryty alkohol. Intensywny, pełny, choć niezbyt gęsty w odbiorze.
Mocno chmielony porter, niebezpiecznie bliski BIPA, w ktrym "zderza się" Ameryka z Anglią. Dość ciekawe połączenie, aczkolwiek osobiście wolę mniej zaznaczoną chmielowość w tym stylu oraz niższe wysycenie...

Tomada hace aos en el Lupulo. Y hace poco en Cerveceria Kraken. Estupenda Imperial Porter. Espuma beis, color negro. Densa. Mucho sabor. Para disfrutar. Entre las mejores sin duda.

Dark brown, brown medium head, medium carbonation and full body. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma with a hint of coffee. Flavour is coffee, chocholate and roasted malt. Goes from sweet chocolate and burned caramel into a dry roasted and hoppy bitter aftertaste.

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
