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.

Tap. Moderate to heavy toasted cereal, dark chocolate and strong coffee for the malt, light resin and earth for the hops and yeast, with background notes of vanilla, and toffee. Head is large, creamy, light brown with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium for full, creamy with a soft carbonation and sticky on the lips finish. The coffee in this beer is a bit powerful, but as a Strong Porter it’s a good representation of the style.

Warm coffee nose. Tastes (unsurprisingly) of coffee and toffee. Very smooth and velvety. One of the best coffee beers I have had.

[growler] shared by skyview. Pours clear deep brown with a soapy tan head. Aroma is coffee, some bell pepper, and chocolate. The coffee really dominates, though. Flavor is, well, lots of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, quite bittersweet, and very dry.

Growler from skyview. The aroma is strong coffee that dominates the other flavors. The body isn’t as harsh, but still very strong.

Received in trade from Shane at sixpoint, hand bottled at the brewery, thanks for the opportunity and generosity. Pours a dark brown with faint garnet highlights when held to light. Huge fluffy tan head sticks around forever and coats my glass all the way down. Smells of coffee, roasted grains and bitter dark chocolate. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, roasted grains. Creamy silky mouthfeel, medium body. medium carbonation. Another exceptional brew from sixpoint. Send your beer to NH already :)

Tap at Rattle ’N Hum - NYC - Ahhh...you could drink this beer with a plate of eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, gravy. With a complexity that defines Imperial Porter, the Gorilla Warfare is as black as midnight with a bubbly brown head rising from a medium to heavy body. The brew boasts an impressive coffee flavor with cream like smoothness. Though not as chocolate laden or dark fruit bountiful as other porters, Sixpoint’s offering is one of the best of the style. In fact, I am currently questioning if it is better than GLBC’s Edmund Fitzgerald!

Dark brown cola looking beer with a small tan head. The nose is chocolate, brown sugar, molasses and dark fruit. Taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, with milk chocolate, chalk dust, caramel and raisins. Medium/Full body is spritzy and thin with moderate carbonation. Meh.

The aroma is overwhelming coffee, cream, chocolate. The appearance is jet black, light tan head. The flavor is roasted coffee, brown sugar, some chocolate. The finish is roasty bitter, light hops. The mouthfeel is creamy, the body is medium. Decent overall.
