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.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear dark cola with a thin ecru head. Malty nose. Flavors of coffee dominating, but with strong chocolate and licorice notes. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitter finish.

Pours a two finger tan head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights, yeast left in bottle. Light carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Roasted coffee nose and flavor is strong roasted coffee. $1.90 for a 12oz bottle from a Tullyís Beer & Wine Wells, ME.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. It pours mahogany brown with reddish hues and a soft tan head that settles in for the session. Vibrant aroma of dark roasted coffee, vanilla beans, and yes, maybe the slightest dark fruit character. Medium and smooth body. Roasted coffee merges with a biscuit malt sweetness and the mildest of hop finishes. Only vaguely bitter but totally enticing. I wish I picked up more of these.

Looks like coffee, smells like coffee, tastes like coffee. That pretty much sums it up, but as far as a porter goes, at 5% itís thinner than I like and I could use more complexity in the aroma and taste. As it is, itís pretty much a coffee bomb, good coffee, but a bit one dimensional.

JFGrind (1883) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Greeted by a strong, inviting coffee aroma, darkest brown body that blends with a chocolate and light vanilla flavor. With all the strong aromas the end result this porterís body was lighter than I expected.

A very powerful coffee aroma but more mild on the taste side. Thatís okay. It is smooth porter.

Draft. Deep brown body. Tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee, vanilla, cream, sugar, chocolate. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Taste of coffee and cream with seven teaspoons of sugar. Easy drinking, but too sweet and too thin. Aroma is nice.
