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

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - AUG 30, 2012
Pours an opaque black, with a huge foamy brown head. Aroma: Massive chocolate aroma, hints of malt and caramel, slightly nutty and toasty. Palate: thick bodied, but not syrupy or massively thick. Smooth. Long finish. Taste: Starts sweet, moves to slightly bitter, gets more intense in the finish. Nice long aftertaste.

BeerRenter76 (1002) - Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Originally rated on 1/19/2009. Gonzo pours a deep black body with a thick tan head that left heavy lace. Aromas of dark fruits like plum, and fig, floral hops, some chocolate malts. Flavor was of alcohol, when that fades you are left with a bitter, dry slightly chocolate and floral aftertaste. The alcohol is a little too dominant but overall it is a pretty good beer that i would try again.

tightslice (1204) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 7, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine in Mountain View, CA. Aroma is dark cocoa / chocolate, burnt sugar, licorice. Taste is dark dry cocoa, chewy burnt sugary malts, some dark fruits. This beer is complex and nuanced...one of the best Imp Porters Ive had.

homeini (219) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 28, 2017
Butelka do 13.05.2017. W aromacie wyraźna czekolada, kawa, lekkie rodzynki, lekka wanilia. W smaku czekolada, intensywna paloność, lekko kwaskowate, wyraźna wanilia, mocna goryczka przede wszystkim od paloności trochę żywiczna. Czarne nieprzejrzyste, średnio obfita ciemno beżowa piana, redukuje się do cienkiej warstwy. Wysycenie zdecydowanie za wysokie, przez to w odbiorze brakuje ciała. Alkohol w aromacie ukryty, ale w smaku wyczuwalny.

19Oracolo78 (179) - ITALY - APR 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2017 Birra dal colore nero. Schiuma marrone, fine e persistente. Al naso malto toststo e caff. Al palato corposa, con note di caffe, liquirizia, cioccolato e malto tostato. Un birra eccelente mediamente carbonata con un grado alcolico elevato che gli dona un carattere liquoroso ma per niente stucchevole. Da non perdere...

kaserov (593) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 17, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrn de tres dedos de grosor (cremosa y de muy buena retencin). Carbonatacin media tirando a alta, ms sutil en boca. Cremosa en boca. Aroma dulzn: malta torrefacta, cacao, caf, un toque especiado, alcohol. En boca es dulce, sin excederse, con la malta torrefacta muy presente, un toque de cacao (no capto caf en boca) y un final amargo y alcohlico (en el buen sentido) de larga duracin. No solo dura el amargor, tambin quema un ratillo en garganta y estmago. Rica y dura.
