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.

750mL screwtop, courtesy of Ughsmash. Thanks, Jason! Pours a murky, dark chocolate color; very light tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Basic coca, milk chocolate, and toastiness in the aroma; slightly bland; some cereal. Medium mouthfeel: basic cocoa, cereal, and wet grains upfront; some chalkiness and chocolate; basic, dry cereal. Medium finish: chocolate, cocoa, and a touch of coffee and dry cereal.

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.

Tap at Barcade: I had just found out about the quality Park Slope coffee place, Gorilla, thanks to notalush; and then this fine Porter came out, cool! Near opaque pour with a fading tan ring for head. Huge roasted aroma. Pungent coffee which is accompanied by a slightly nutty dark chocolate hint. Thick bodied without being cloying. Flavor is straight coffee! Rich and roasted, tastes like the aroma of freshly ground dark roast beans. Also has some salty dark chocolate and a really long coffee bitter finish, with a subtle hop dryness as well. Extremely well crafted. A coffee lovers beer!

Sampled at Rattle N Hum. Too much tart fruit, potentially infected...lactic qualities accompany bitter chocolate and toffee. Cherry skin, plum, and raspberries are there as well. Distracting. Pass.

[Tap] Jet black pour with a small tan head. Aromas of coffee grounds, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Charred grains, bakers chocolate, bitter coffee, rye, light vanilla and ashy malts in the taste. Good flavor overall, but it seems a little thin. Mild carbonation. Good looking lacing left over on the glass. Tasting notes from 9/2014.

On tap at 28 Springs. Pours super dark brown to black. Aroma is coffee and roast. Lots of coffee on the flavor. And then more coffee. Somewhat bitter. Decent but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
