UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 On draft at Good Beer. I love how Sixpoint keeps churning out new releases. Here is a roast coffee porter made with Gorilla brand coffee. It is a roasty coffee porter with lots of brown sugar sweetness. It is easy on the acidtiy and the hopping is just right, so it goes down smoothly and leaves a mild aftertaste. As it warms, it begins to release a floral aroma. Another very fine Sixpoint production. Took a couple of points off after a second tasting - not as sweet and fresh as the first time I had it. deanso (10150) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 5, 2011

Thin off white head. Clear dark pour. Lots of coffee notes. Smooth Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2011
On tap at Blind Tiger. Pours a dark brown color with a caramel colored head. Aroma of caramel, roast, and chocolate underneath. Sweet coffee taste with a nice hop hit and some coffee spice. Coffee is in there but really delicate. Nice sweet chocolate notes on the finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Very tasty. glennmastrange (2883) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
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. MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2011
[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. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2011
Growler from skyview. The aroma is strong coffee that dominates the other flavors. The body isn’t as harsh, but still very strong. johnnnniee (4346) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 18, 2011
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!
