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.

NikkTwist (1839) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Draft at Milk Boy. Black pour. Strong foamy off-white head. Tastes like watered espresso. Hints of chocolate and dark fruit but coffee dominates. Slim aroma. Medium-bodied Porter. Good stuff but lacking gravity.

On tap in an English pint. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate malts, coffee, some dough, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Smooth to average texture. A good beer.

PhillyCraft (3632) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Sample at barcade courtesy of Maryanna, pours blackish color with light white head, not much lacing. Aroma and flavor were roasted grain, espresso, wood, and cocoa. Medium bodied. Nothing amazing here but a nice porter made in America.

reggiedunlop (3378) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours pitch black with a medium tan head. Aroma has bitter chocolate and mild coffee. Flavor follows suit...steps up the coffee and adds a touch of burnt/bitter and faint dark fruit. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is bitter/tart coffee.

mansquito (3861) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Pacific Standard, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours black with a brownish head. Aroma is espresso and roasted malts. Taste is like a warm cup of coffee that is actually a cold cup of coffee. Basically, there is a lot of coffee, but it is admirably well blended into the roasted malt character of the beer. There are also hints of chocolate. Basically, this is a pretty dank porter. Sixpoint does not disappoint.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2012

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2012
In short: A highly roasted stout/porter with complete focus on roasted coffee beans
How: Tap at Three Penny Taproom, Montpelier, VT
The look: Black body topped by a medium tan head
In long: Nose has a lot of roasted coffee beans and then some more. Taste is very roasted, so roasted that it is a bit harsh. Roasted coffee beans and then burnt coffee beans. Not much chocolate flavor and nothing fruity here. The roastiness might be a big over the top here and it makes it a bit too astringent. This is a coffee stout that is really just that, a coffee stout. Certainly far from complex, very straightforward, but still enjoyable because coffee focused beers are easy to enjoy. The roastiness and coffee in this beer stood out like two black guys in a NASCAR race stadium.
