Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown with three fingers of tan head.

Smell - roasted malts, cocoa, coffee bean, slight dark fruits, molasses, and hint of earthy hops.

Taste - Hit right away with roasted malts and bitter cocoa followed nicely by the coffee bean, molasses, earthy hops, and dark fruits.

Mouthfeel - Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant bitterness from the cocoa and roasted malts with the earthy hops contributing to the bitterness.

Overall - A tasty American Porter with an excellent roasted malt and bitter cocoa profile with the hint of the earthy hops adding as a nice support unit in this brew. I admire the support that Maine Beer Company provides to a number of great causes.

Apparently, this bottle-conditioned porter is named after a gorilla (though, I am unaware that gorillas are native to the State of Maine). The intial pour results in a glass of beige foam; it slowly subsides into an impervious tar-color liquid. Once settled, there remains an inch of vanilla atop, forming a chunky crown of froth.

There is a subtle nose of vanilla and plum with mocking whiffs of cocoa. The palate is tickled by a semi-sweet malt basting with minimal hop undertones. There is some dusty chalk bites in the mouthfeel; these diminish in a dry fade.

A pleasant quaff for man or monkey. Now get your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!

had this dated 51314 in a tulip at around 45-50 degrees

Appearance: pitch black with 2.5 finger head. beautiful lacing that dissipates as you drink.

Smell; dark chocolate, coffee (instant to me), pepper, black malt, oil.

Taste: thin, coffee, 50% cacao chocolate, toast, nuts.

Mouthfeel: not as much carbonation as I had expected although good mouthfeel.

Overall: while the beer is a solid beer, this is my least favorite of the beers in the MBC lineup.
