BEER HAIKU # 49 Fitzpatrick’s Imperial Porter

A Bay of Plenty homage to Flying Dog’s Gonzo Imperial Porter, the newest release from Fitzpatrick’s comfortably stands up to its inspiration. Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar can cheerfully chalk up another winner in its new release sequence.

Fitzpatrick’s Imperial Porter (8% ABV) 

Out gonzos gonzo

Princely muck on Royal birth

Full of grit and tar

Food match: spit-roast wild boar, a particularly aromatic Cuban Churchill

It’s the kind of beer you drink: When chewing tobacco while facing the Baltic Sea in a Northerly.
