COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gorilla Warfare Porter is a silky smooth porter made with 40 lbs of Park Slope’s 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 baker’s chocolate. Combined with patent malt, the signature of many great English-style porters, this is one silky smooth, coffee-rich porter.

Draft at Dutch’s, served in a pint glass. Pours a deep, pretty much opaque coffee brown with a finger of fairly resilient tan head. Aroma of coffee, earth, baker’s chocolate, mellow spice, and burnt toast. Flavor is the same. Light-medium bodied, with modest carbonation and a rich, gritty mouthfeel. Actually feels a lot like Beans on the palate. Good coffee porter, just slightly restrained and one-dimensional.

Draft at Ale House. Pours nearly black with a big beige head. Aroma of chocolate, raisins, coffee. Flavor is burnt caramel, chocolate, some charred oak and coffee ground bitter in the finish.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted coffee, dark chocolate, good bitterness to the finish, creamy smooth mouthfeel, pretty solid coffee porter.

DrSilverworm (6937) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Totally hazy dark brown color. Good bigger light brown head. Leaves great thicker lace. Awesome coffee in the nose, some dark chocolate. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Nice moderate sweet, lighter bitter taste. Impressive, tasty coffee porter. Good to wash down my mcd quarter pounder with (the QP itself was way subpar, though. They gypped me on the lettuce and tomato! WTF?!)

KeefOz (963) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2014
Draught at Embassy Hotel, Brisbane. Poured an opaque black with a thin light tan collar that laced OK. Aroma dominated by slightly roasted coffee plus a hint of dark chocolate. Taste intensely of sweet coffee plus a trace of chocolate. Light to medium body. Smooth, creamy, sweet with a pleasant coffee finish. Very nice!
