"Too weird to live, too rare to die, Gonzo Imperial Porter is bold and forceful, like the man it was brewed to honor." – Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.
This beer is deep, dark, and mysterious, just like the man it was brewed to honor. 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.
