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 (26065) - Charlotte, North Carolina, 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 (22298) - 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 @ Laser Wolf. Dark brown, lots of coffee on the nose. The taste is coffee with some fairly smooth, lightly chocolatey dark malts. Very coffeeish but clean, roasty and pretty good.
