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 don’t show it the proper respect. IBU’s: 85

A clear favourite, pours with a rich head. Very dark in the glass. Fruit and spice on the nose. Plenty of lacing. Very satisfying taste, full bodied and rich with fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kolor czarnego brazu. Refleksy rubinowe-brunatne. Piana gruba gesta dosc drobna i niezle sie trzyma. Aromat karmelu i palonego karmelu, palone slody, lekki w tle dym, sos sojowy. Smak deserowy palony kawowy lekko czekoladowy lekka gorycz chmielu finisz karmelowy z wytrawna gorycza palonosci. Polecam.

This pours from 12oz bottle a very dark brown with a small but firm tannish head of foam. It shrinks quickly to some patches and a ring around the glass.

The smell is complex. I get some roasted and caramel malt, grain, chocolate, and some dark fruit. Nice.

The taste has some caramel malt up front followed by chocolate, dark fruit, and then a big more than a kiss of the hops that balances the sweetness very well. In fact, the finish is hop dominated with a nice long lasting aftertaste. The mouthfeel is thick and chewy for me and the carbonation is light. The alcohol becomes noticeable after about the third sip and it gives me a nice warming after the swallow.

The fruit is taking a bigger share of the flavour now..I can taste some fig and plum and there's a good toffee presence as well. Pretty tasty example of the style. I like it.

Aroma is quality dark chocolate, roasted coffee, a hint of vanilla and marzipan. Rich malty body with a really nice roastiness to it. Quality espresso coffee, bitter dark chocolate, fudge, leather and ash. Finish is pure bitter coffee. Carbonation is soft and it gives a silky mouthfeel. Quality.

Piana obfita drobna, utrzymuje się długo, zdobi szkło. kolor czarny z rubinowymi prześwitami. Aromat ciemne słody, czekolada, suszone owoce, słodko likierowy, w tle amerykanskie chmielenie, bardzo przyjemny. Smak czekolada, palonosc, kawa, karmel, syrop klonowy, estry owocowe w suszone owoce, pozostałości po chmielach amerykańskich. W odczuciu mimo wyraźnej słodyczy lekkie, pijalne, alkohol ukryty, goryczka zaznaczona, pasuje. Bardzo Dobre porterowe WOW

Bottle. Aroma of dark chocolate. Flavor is strong dark chocolate. Finish is bitter. Mouthfeel is slightly syrupy.

SvanteL (645) - SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2017
Svart med ett enormt stort och fast skum som så småningom klänger sig fast på insidan av glaset. Doftar kaffe, riktigt mörk choklad, torkade plommon, aningen vinös. Fyllig smak, lite tjock i konsistensen med massor av kaffe och mörk choklad, även här finns lite torkad frukt och en vinös ton, det hela avslutas med en bra beska
En synnerligen njutbar imperial porter som tål att smuttas på en timme eller så. (2011-12-05)
