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.

Had on tap in Chicago -- the aroma on this beer is very deep and dark, with a hint of vanilla. Flavor is extremely complex and leans heavily on the coffee additions. I’m a very big fan of this beer. Great to drink on a cold winter day.

ben4321 (6735) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Location: Growler from Syosset Beverage, 10/13/14

Aroma: The aroma is heavy coffee, very roasty, bitter, just a little sweet, with dark chocolate notes
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a coating beige head and plus lacing
Flavor: Tastes much the same, roasted coffee up, down, and sideways, with notes of chocolate
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with an average carbonation, and a long, dry, roasty finish
Overall Impression: This is one of the most coffee forward beers I have had in a long time. Anything else that is going on here is completely drowned out by the strong, bitter, dry coffee flavors. One dimensional, sure, but that one dimension is well done.

Pours black with low light tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is very chocolate rich up front, sweet and milk chocolatey, followed by balanced and smooth coffee bitter finish. Body is lightish with soft carbonation.

Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Sample at Yabo’s Tacos. Dark brown color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee, malt and chocolate. Medium body with flavors of roasted coffee, dark chocolate and malt. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.

Tmoney99 (14954) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2014
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.

3.6
phaleslu (10652) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft at Dutch’s, served in a pint glass. Pours a deep, pretty much opaque coffee brown with a finger of fairly resilient tan head. Aroma of coffee, earth, baker’s chocolate, mellow spice, and burnt toast. Flavor is the same. Light-medium bodied, with modest carbonation and a rich, gritty mouthfeel. Actually feels a lot like Beans on the palate. Good coffee porter, just slightly restrained and one-dimensional.

3.7
WillRunForBeer (2766) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Draft at Ale House. Pours nearly black with a big beige head. Aroma of chocolate, raisins, coffee. Flavor is burnt caramel, chocolate, some charred oak and coffee ground bitter in the finish.
