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.

(OId BA rate - tap) Near black color, with some brown tones. Nice-looking thick, milky tan head. Great lacing throughout the sample. Bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, and lots of coffee bean aromas. Very much like roasted coffee with good malt sweetness to balance it out. Nice bitter chocolate ending on it. A bit thinner than I expected, but with nice light carbonation. Not overly mouthfilling, but still nice. This is very drinkable, even though it has a lot of strong flavors. Great sipper for cooler weather, and would recommend for after dinner. Overall, really liked this

Draft at Craft. Pours deep black with 1-finger tan head. Nose is huge oaky bourbon, dark patent malt, brown sugar,chocolate and molasses. Tastes of dark malt, molasses, dark choc, coffee, with a very complex, semi-sweet flavor, and more oak, chocoff, malt, and molasses as it warms. Some late rauchy notes. Solid.

Dark brown color, edge head. Aroma of Starbucks. Very light bodied, flavor is of over roasted coffee, just like a Starbucks. More like drinking a cup of coffee than a porter.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 17, 2010
Tap at Craft Ale House. Pours a deep almost black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of a nice complex coffee, chocolate, nuts and malt sweetness. Flavor is also of complex coffee notes, chocolate, sweet malts, light roast and caramel. Ethiopian Yergacheffe coffee is my favorite beans and I was excited to hear that It was used in this beer.

JW77 hooks it up. Dark brown pour. Coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and some molasses in the aroma. Flavor is much the same. A great coffee note makes this one a real treat.
