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

baobubba (454) - Starkville, Mississippi, USA - APR 2, 2011
Pours dark brown with a thin but continuous tan head. Chocolate/Caramel roastiness is the dominant aroma backed by an earthy-floral hopiness. Roasty on the taste with a bit of burnt astringincy followed by some hot alcohol. Burnt roastiness lingers. Makes my mouth feel special - in a can’t feel my knees sort way. A solid offering.

33cl bottle at home. Appearance: black with medium, beige head, with low retention. Aroma: Dark fruits, figs, coffee, dark chocolate, basil, roasted malts. Taste: high sweetness and high bitterness. Notes of coffee, dark dried fruits, very dark chocolate, ’haagse hopjes’, roasted malts. Fairly malty. Palate: medium to full bodied, oily texture and medium carbonation. Definitely a nice and malty imperial porter.

pkomar (448) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 22, 2017
very disappointing, stale hops, little to no chocolate or flavours coming from malt, little depth, not too much body, astringent bitterness - this one has lots of flaws, but overall its quite drinkable and gets better as it opens up even appearing as a somewhat decent porter with some coffee and chocolate notes coming in in the end.

Výborné pivo se spousty tóny jako čokoláda, karamel, rozinky apod. Silný říz, aroma i jemná krémová pěna.

ALIBALI (2002) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2017
Cooles Design = Extrapoint 😉. Dicker US REDFRUIT BIPA Dampf auf die Nüstern. Klar, einen Hauch ledriger Kellermuff und die unvermeidlichen Röstaromen, lassen kaum Wünsche offen. Black As The Night & anmutiger CremeHopfenSchlankPorterer next ✨🎆👽👍. 355ml Bottle für schlappe 2,65€ von VAN ERP Groningen. Yippiiieee....LakritzoSanfto too 😉...

Ocena przepisana z notatek / innego serwisu, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na RateBeer. Czekolada, rodzynki, śliwki, jest trochę słodyczy, finisz w kierunku półwytrawnego.

MrSquash (155) - Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2017
June 2005 bottle. Actually aged really nicely over the past 12 years. Lots of dark fruit up front paired with toffee and caramel malt. Pitch black in color with a milk chocolate head and low retention. Taste starts out sticky sweet with moderate roast and plum/prune. Really nice!

GeorgePratt (70) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2017
Aroma of coffee beans and spice. Pours a dark black with notable particulates and a small tan head. Taste of coffee and dark chocolate with a bitter savory finish. Epic IP.

eljebi (93) - oviedo, SPAIN - MAY 26, 2017
Vuelvo a beberla ańos después y sigue enamorándome. Negra, densa, opaca, sedosa, llena de notas torrefactas a cacao, café y azúcar caramelizado, frutas maduras y cítricos y afrutados de los lupulos. El alcohol aparece al final, con un postgusto seco y una sensación bien reconfortante

disfit (36) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2017
On cask @ Brody's. Nose: coffee, roasty malts. Taste: sweetness, coffee, cacao / dark bitter chocolate followed by hop bitter. Mouthfeel / palate: soft and velvety.
