COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gorilla Warfare Porter is a silky smooth porter made with 40 lbs of Park Slopeís Gorilla Coffee Ethiopian Yergacheffe blend, a Fair Trade and Organic Certified coffee roasted in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The coffee has winey, spicy notes with hints of bakerís chocolate. Combined with patent malt, the signature of many great English-style porters, this is one silky smooth, coffee-rich porter.

Intense coffee melds well with a base beer that leans towards roasty and dry. Well-made and clean but pretty simple.

Drinks above its weight. The wine noted in the coffee comes through quite strong and gives this porter an interesting character even if itís not one Iím crazy about. Different.

On tap at 28 Springs. Pours super dark brown to black. Aroma is coffee and roast. Lots of coffee on the flavor. And then more coffee. Somewhat bitter. Decent but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Tap] Jet black pour with a small tan head. Aromas of coffee grounds, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Charred grains, bakers chocolate, bitter coffee, rye, light vanilla and ashy malts in the taste. Good flavor overall, but it seems a little thin. Mild carbonation. Good looking lacing left over on the glass. Tasting notes from 9/2014.

Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, spicy hops, sweet malts, and molasses. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some pine and wine notes. Has a medium-full body with a pretty creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, slightly dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty and interesting imperial porter.

10 oz. snifter at When Pigs Fly. Pours a dark brown with a one finger foamy beige head. Coffee, vanilla and a hint of cocoa on the aroma. Semi sweet taste. Like lightly sweetened coffee. Body is a bit thin, but Iím getting picky here. Very nice.

On tap at Moor Pat. Very dark and impressive pour with brown head. Lots of coffee in it throughout. Slightly bitter coffee though, not the sickening sweet coffee you get sometimes. Smooth and not too killer heavy. I really liked this.

On tap at Spritzenhaus. Pours black with a tan head. Looks like a porter. Aroma is coffee (obviously) and more chocolate than expected. Flavor is coffee throughout. Really prominent. Which leads a more full body to it. Chocolate mixed in. One of the most full bodies Iíve tasted on a porter. Awesome

Opaque, much lace. Medium body, slight flavor, short. Bitter, not too dry. Roast flavors. Ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
