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.

Travlr (15204) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 24, 2010
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.

Leighton (13620) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2010
Tap at Barcade. I had the 2008 vintage. Very decent but it didn’t live up to my expectations. Everything about the beer was a little light. Aroma of slightly roasted malts and mild coffee. Flavor was pleasant, some malty sweetness, tasty notes of chocolate and coffee. Clean with a hint of bitter bite on the finish. Sort of like a Brownstone with some coffee.

Draft sample. Poured dark brown with an average tan frothy head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Complex solid 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.
