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

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma has, as expected hints ofroasted malt, sweetness and raisin. It pours pitch black with a thick foam. Taste is slightly bitter and dry in the aftertaste, preceded by a roasted, almost woody, sweetness. Mouthfeel is, for a dark beer such as this, surprisingly thin, would have expected a more oily texture but it lacks in this department.

sicuramente non il mio genere,ma devo riconoscere che un ottima birra,forse un p troppo invadente al palato con le sue note di caff e caramello.

oskurot (3) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2011 does not count
Bottle at home. Aroma gives off charcoal, honey and hops, although not very strongly. Has a full body that tastes of charcoal, coffee, dandelion and a hint of liquorice. Overall a nice beer but I cant help to feel that theyre playing a little bit safe.

IvoR (92) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2012
[Rated 09/12/2009] Bottle. Pours dark like coffee with a thick tan head. A little low on aroma -- some alcohol smell and hints of malt, but nothing that catches the breath. Flavor is of roasted barley and chocolate. I was trying hard to find another discerning feature, but I couldnt. That doesnt make it bad as there is a very warm overall feeling that lasts well into the finish. Finish is again of roasted barley with some bitterness from the host that shows through the malt. A very decent brew.

hackobock (3825) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 26, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Black with a thick beige head. Smells of cocoa, some coffee, roasted malt, some sweetness to it as well but lacks hop aroma. Overall the aroma was not that distinct as expected. Medium body, low/medium carbonation. The coffee notes are more distinct when drinking, the finishing bitterness is mellow but long-lasting.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2012
Pours black with a small biege. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt and a fair bit of booze. Very sweet flavour, chocolate predominates with a background woody note with a fainter hint of alcohol. Nice and sweet.

Smeade (80) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
S: pitch black, thick, chocolate head A: roasty, bittersweet chocolate, a little boozy T: coffee like bitterness, toasty, slightly unbalanced alcohol burn O: this is a good beer, but unbalanced flavors; its worth trying, but then you should upgrade to the bourbon barrel aged version; the aging balances out the beer and makes it spectacular! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
