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.

This is such a great beer! Thick, rich coffee aroma flows right into a great-flavored brew. The coffee taste is great. Full of lactose-sweetness. Perfect, full-mouthfeel and even chewy. Nicely balanced, and not overly hopped, as I feared it would be.

Near black color, with some brown tones. Nice-looking thick, milky tan head. Great lacing throughout the sample. Bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, and lots of coffee bean aromas. Very much like roasted coffee with good malt sweetness to balance it out. Nice bitter chocolate ending on it. A bit thinner than I expected, but with nice light carbonation. Not overly mouthfilling, but still nice. This is very drinkable, even though it has a lot of strong flavors. Great sipper for cooler weather, and would recommend for after dinner. Overall, really liked this

Growler. Now that is a chocolaty aroma! Wow! Like a big vat of heated semi-sweet chocolate. Just a little coffee around the edges too, more of a roasted aspect comes in as it warms. Flavor not quite as wowing, but still one of a really nice porter with chocolate and coffee notes. Rich, creamy mouthfeel. A stand-up brew.

I bought a Growler from Bellport Beer and got a free preview of this superb creation while I was there. The ruby/brown porter made a wonderful impression upon guests from France last night who were curious about Sixpoint. The vibrantly apparent coffee element offered a dessert like quality that could have been poured over ice cream and yet it wasn’t sugary sweet. Imbued with nut flavors, we were only unhappy that we didn’t buy more than one growler from the cool little store in Bellport.

Tap at Craft Ale House. Pours a deep almost black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of a nice complex coffee, chocolate, nuts and malt sweetness. Flavor is also of complex coffee notes, chocolate, sweet malts, light roast and caramel. Ethiopian Yergacheffe coffee is my favorite beans and I was excited to hear that It was used in this beer.

Draft at Craft. Pours deep black with 1-finger tan head. Nose is huge oaky bourbon, dark patent malt, brown sugar,chocolate and molasses. Tastes of dark malt, molasses, dark choc, coffee, with a very complex, semi-sweet flavor, and more oak, chocoff, malt, and molasses as it warms. Some late rauchy notes. Solid.

On tap at Tomahawk Bar. Roasted coffee bean aroma leads to a burnt coffee flavour. Midnight black in colour.
