Flying Dog Gonzo Imperial Porter

Flying Dog
Frederick, MD

Grade: A
Style: Baltic porter
Serve in: Snifter, pint glass, mug


“Brewed to honor the life of Hunter S. Thompson”, quoteth the bottle. I love Gonzo beers. I respect what they’re doing and I totally respect this porter. Pours a dark dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is subtle, but is still roasty enough to let you know that you’re in for a treat. It’s sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. You’re basking in espresso and chocolate, maltiness, smooth and rich, that  fades into a hoppiness that lingers in the back of your throat.

Slight presence of alcohol, and a very clean mouthfeel. It’s so robust that I can only envision drinking 1 of these. But I don’t mind.

Cheers Dr. Thompson.
