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

Imperial Porter? stupid name (great label though). Nice sweetish smell.Taste again nottes of sweetness, without being cloying. The bitter kick helps in that respect a bit of cinnamon? not as overwhelming as I suspected it would be... Nice

geolgau (418) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - OCT 16, 2017
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.

data z etykiety 13.05.2017 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

SvanteL (630) - 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.

Bamsen78 (5543) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2017
Draught @ the brewery. Pours cloudy very dark brown, with stable light tan head. Clear aroma of roast and malt, with estery notes. Bitter, roasty flavour with coffee and nitro notes and sweetish, estery and malty touches and hints of fruit. Roasty and estery aftertaste wit bitterish and acidic hints. Good.
Earlier Rating: 10/5/2013 Total Score: 3.5
Draught @ Rattle & Hum, NYC. Cask. Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Dark aroma of dark chocolate, caramel and malt. Bitter and roasty onset with sweetish malty and caramel notes and a deafening chilli symphony. Bitter and spicy finish. Nice but first and foremost interesting.

coil (124) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
355 bottle from The Grumpy Goat, Reading. Black colour with tan head. Big dark roasted malts, soy sauce, dark chocolate, espresso, some pine resin hops, light smokiness, dark fruits, black IPA aspects. Great stuff.

3.2
VueltaBirrista (129) - Murcia, SPAIN - SEP 29, 2017
Una Imperial Porter compleja, muy espesa y oscura. Su increíble corona de espuma se asemeja a la de un buen café. Huele y sabe a caramelo, café y chocolate. En boca incluso aparece alguna nota cítrica producto seguramente del Cascade. Y es que en esta Gonzo los lúpulos tienen tanto o más protagonismo que las maltas tostadas.

2.9
higgsbison (261) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Full-bodied and creamy. Assertively hopped; Leans more towards an Imperial black IPA than a porter. Strong notes of dark chocolate and strong black coffee. Complex with a peppery finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.7
OminouSC2 (846) - Mora, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2017
Black color, large brown head. Aromas of chocolate, hops, roasted malt, fudge, earth and slight smoke. Roasted taste with chocolate, wood, hops, licorice and burnt toast. Slight bitter finish.
