COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter seasonal brew, Alta Gracia Coffee Porter is made in cooperation with the Vermont Coffee Company using 100% certified fair trade, organic coffee from the Alta Gracia farm in the Dominican Republic. Alta Gracia Coffee Porter is an exceptionally smooth and flavorfully complex beer that is surprisingly true to the porter style. The hint of vanilla brings out the sweetness of the dark-roasted Dominican coffee.

I got this as an extra from steelersxl, thanks a bunch man! Dark black, pretty standard appearance for the style, looks good. Smells like coffee grounds after the pot has been brewed. Strong! The flavor is actually better than I expected, very heavy coffee flavor but its not bad, its actually pretty good and I don;t like coffee beers (usually).

Full and fine coffee aroma. Good, complex coffee flavor. Mostly sweet, but with some malt and hop tones too, and a touch of cheese. A good brew, and one of Wolavers’ better releases.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2010
12 oz. bottle from The CoffeeBar. Pours dark brown, bubbly tan head. Aroma of burnt charcoal, coffee, touch of chocolate. Decent carb, light bodied. Good sweet vanilla, then a fantastic dry burnt coffee roasty finish. Great coffee porter that left my tongue feeling like I just finished an iced americano.

Beerman6686 (4704) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2010
This poured a dark brown color with a thin beige head. Aroma was toffee, light coffee and some light chocolate notes. Flavor was lightly roasted malts, watery coffee, some sweet caramel/ toffee britsih porter notes too. Not bad, but nothing great either.

IN MY TIMES IVE HAD SEVERAL BEERS THAT HAVE INCORPORATED COFFEE IN THEM (EX: DOGFISH HEADS CHICORY STOUT, JAVA HEAD ECT.) AND BALANCED THEM WELL WITH OTHER FLAVORS YET STILL MANAGING TO BE A "BEER". AS FOR MY TAKE ON COFFEE, I DO ENJOY A CUP IN THE MORNING I LIKE GOOD COFFEE WITH NO SUGAR AND A LITTLE MILK. IM ALSO A FAN OF ORGANIC PRODUCTS, THESE FACTS WOULD LEAVE YOU TO BELIEVE THAT THIS "CERTIFIED ORGANIC COFFEE PORTER" WOULD BE RIGHT UP MY ALLY RIGHT? SO LETS TRY IT. FIRST OFF, THIS BEER SMELLS LIKE AN EMPTY CAN OF COFFEE GRINDS AND FOR SOME REASON IT REMINDS ME OF WHEN I WAS A KID, MAYBE BECAUSE WE ALWAYS WOULD KEEP THE CANS AROUND THE HOUSE AND USE THEM FOR STORAGE, FOR WHATEVER REASON THE AROMA IS VERY FAMILIAR. IT POURS A DARK BROWN ALMOST BLACK WITH NEARLY NO VISIBLE HEAD, AS FOR TASTE ITS STRAIGHT UP COFFEE WITH A SLIGHT CARBONATION, IT ACTUALLY TASTES LIKE ICED COFFEE, THERE IS NOT EVEN A HINT OF ANYTHING ELSE. I WONDER IF I HEAT IT UP AND ADD MILK IF IT WOULD TASTE LIKE REGULAR COFFEE...HMMM, LETS SEE...........WELL THAT WASNT THE GREATEST IDEA THE SLIGHT CARBONATION AND NEARLY INSIGNIFICANT ALCOHOL CONTENT CURDLED THE MILK.....ANYWAY, ALTHOUGH I HAVE A HARD TIME CALLING THIS A BEER I CAN SAY THIS ICED COFFEE IS PRETTY GOOD

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 15, 2010
12 oz - The Wine Source. Deep brown, creamy tan head. Warmed wet coffee ground aromas ride soft swirls of toasted vanilla and caramel. Fresh roasted coffee flavors are well balanced on a foundation of sweet vanilla cream and dark chocolate cocoa. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, bittersweet coffee finish. A nice session beer to get your coffee fix on

emacgee (4145) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours a dark copper brown that sits black with a one finger creamy light tan head. Nose shows coffee upfront, nice roast, some bakers chocolate, earthy hops and mild grain character. Flavor shows a good coffee and dark grain integration, roast, dark chocolate, crisp. Palate is cut a little by the coffee, not as robust as it could be.

From a bottle poured black with a small head. Very strong toasted malty/coffee flavor with a lasting aftertaste.

MrBunn (2508) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours like a thick cola... dark brown with lots of bubbles rising up (even minutes after pour). Not much of a head. Aromas are OK, chocolate and coffee, but seem a little underdone and unidirectional. Flavor is similar, just OK... coffee and chocolate flavors are strong, mouthfeel is pretty syrupy, and there is a little too much sweetness for my tastes.

blankboy (6277) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2010
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a deep ruby, almost dark brown, with an average size frothy light-brown head. Slightly mild aroma of roasted malt, a hint of smoke and lots of coffee. Flavour is roasted malt and coffee, a hint of smoke and some lactic notes. Slightly dry, roasty finish. Didn’t really get much vanilla, if any, in the aroma or flavour. Thin to average bodied. It’s fine, I didn’t love it but it was OK.
