Flying Dog Barrel-Aged Gonzo Imperial Porter
Flying Dog Barrel-Aged Gonzo is an Imperial American Porter. This bottle is vintage 12AA, whatever that means. Rich and creamy with a bit of roasted malts and molasses. Then the star of this show takes over. The whiskey barrel aging imparts not only whiskey, but also some vanilla and oak from the barrel itself. Some hops blend nicely with the whiskey burn on the finish. I can’t imagine why they retired this, so grab a bottle if you see one. I was pretty happy to add this on to a trade to get to try it!
