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

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

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.

acemilan (269) - 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.
