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.

Tap at Rattle íN 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, Sixpointís offering is one of the best of the style. In fact, I am currently questioning if it is better than GLBCís Edmund Fitzgerald!

Draft. Pours dark dark brown with a beige head. Roasty aroma with plenty of coffee and a light sweetness. The flavor has tons of roasted coffee goodness, some lightly burnt malts, and a light sweetness. Nice.

(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.
