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

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a murky pitch black with a large (2-3 finger) medium brown creamy head that had awesome retention, lasting until the end and producing some excellent clingy spotty lacing. The aroma was nice and robust of a roasted chocolate malt, a mild resin hop and an earthy leathery yeast with notes of bitter-sweet chocolate, dark roasted coffee, molasses and a quite pronounced scent of alcohol. The taste was bold and roasty with a sweet acidic malty flavor that had hints of molasses and chocolate at first and then having a nice bitter sweet coffee flavor take hold with a very strong alcohol presence at the end. The flavor hung on for a decently long time letting one enjoy the nice mocha coffee flavor and a nice alcohol warming sensation. Mouthfeel was a solid medium in body with the texture being a bit oily yet a little dry towards the end with the carbonation being quite lively. Overall a nice strong, bold and roasty brew with a good rounding of flavors and a kickin’ alcohol finish.

Bottle from 100 piv. Aroma of plums, malt, alcohol and lot of chocolate. Dark color with brown shades, small creamy head. Tasty and creamy beer, taste of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, citrus, and long bitterness. Full body.

Bottle. One the best porters ever. Thick and bitter, slightly sweet and a loooooong aftertaste.

PREZENTACJA: czarne z obfitą sztywną pianą, która opada do kożuszka z kołnierzem, bujnie oblepiając przy tym ściankę (podczas picia koronka już nie jest tak efektowna);
AROMAT: sos sojowy, wędzona czekolada, pianka cukrowa, karmel, po zabełtaniu czuć kalafiora;
ODCZUCIE: ciało wysokie ku średniemu, nisko nasycone, wyraźnie zaklejające;
SMAK: lekko kwaśny i słonawy - espresso, czekolada deserowa muśnięta cukrową pianką lub słodkim karmelem, średnia krótka karobowa goryczka;
OGÓLNIE: bardzo mi podeszło to piwo, akurat na takie miałem w tej chwili ochotę; jest wytrawne i w aromacie, i w smaku, ale już w odczucie zaklejające; przez całą degustację wzdłuż dominującej nuty kakaowej i czekoladowej unosi się ciężka do opisania nuta; jest ona lekko ziemista, głównie wytrawna, ale też odrobinę słodka, kakaowa, nieco słonecznikowa i słona; to ona w głównej mierze odpowiada za mój bardzo pozytywny odbiór tego piwa.

SimonBlok (601) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2017
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 (467) - 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.

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.
