The bottle is labeled "BAG Barrel-Aged Gonzo Imperial Porter" and the artwork does not match any of the variations listed here on BA. Huh.
Poured into a Bruery tulip, the liquid is just one shade of brown lighter than black. Opaque . A two-finger dark tan head forms during the pour and settles down soon into a think skin and a slightly sticky crown. Some sheeting.
Aroma is all bourbon. Well, there might be a hint of vanilla and chocolate.
Flavor is salty bourbon with a chocolate malt base. Not especially bitter, but what there is reminds me of coffee. Again, tiny hints of vanilla and chocolate. Not very complex, disappointingly.
Mouthfeel is a little smooth and a little creamy but thinner than anticipated.
This is a step up from the standard Gonzo, to be sure, but only a small one. Not the complex bourbon bomb I was expecting.
