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

Psykling's rating

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 19/20
Psykling (17) - Copenhagen, - JUN 7, 2008
What an aroma! Chocolate, which gives way to cream (almost like strawberries with cream!), then toasted bread and bitter coffee. The first mouthful prickles uncontrollably, not from carbon but from taste! Although toast dominates the flavor, hints of lemon not to mention the lingering green-apple taste from the hops! adds supremely delightful nuances to this wonderful brew. This imperial porter eschews chocolate in favor of cocoa, which in my opinion makes for a far better porter. The bottled version is much more nuanced than the draught version, although the latter has an undeniable drinkability which the subtleties of the bottled version naturally counter. A fantastic beer!

malushky (119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2017
335 ml bottle from Greenwich Union. Pours black with large, fine, lasting brown head. Aroma is moistly of plum and licorice, some wood present. Taste starts off sweet, ripe fruits, middle is plum and finish is perfect dark chocolate. Medium-bodied, oily texture, lasting bitter aftertaste. Great beer in overall.

Acaro (21) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 23, 2017
Aroma: Caramel and chocolate Appearance: Black color with hazy liquid and brown head. Taste: heavy sweetness with some bitter notes Palate: Full body with creamy texture and flat carbonation, long bitter and sweet finish. Overall: Nice strong beer. Not for everybody: the bitter and sweet mixes are very confusing for the tastebuds. To enjoy slowly and drink without rushes.

Jesper86 (88) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 5, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2017 Pretty dry. Rye, charcoal, raisins, dark chocolate, subtle hint of amarena. There?s a present bitterness but it?s balanced with the other flavours.

acemilan (266) - POLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Czarne niczym... O bardzo ładnej pianie. Aromat czekolady, suszonych owocw (śliwka ), paloność lekka w tle. W smaku do tego dochodzi kawa wsparta porzeczkami (?). Lekka goryczka na finiszu dopełniąca piwo. Bardzo dobre piwo, ale nieco zbyt chamskie w wrażeniu jednak. Piwo dla koneserw, dość wytrawne. Po ogrzaniu jeszcze więcej da się z smaku wyciągnąć.
