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.

Beerathon (1459) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2015
About as much coffee you can pack into a porter with its ABV and not be overwhelming. A bit creamy, not overly bitter, smell of fresh brewed coffee and roasted malts. Quality.

hershiser2 (1322) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Smells of dark chocolates, coffee, possibly some dark fruit. Cheap dark chocolate candy, coffee, raspberry. Maybe? It certainly tastes like it to me.
