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.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Presentation: It was poured from tap at the Buffalo Brew Pub and served in a standard pint glass. Appearance: The body has a very dark brown look with some lighter dark amber/light brown high lights coming through the glass. Visibility is good and the beer is topped off with a small light tan head that fades quickly leaving just a light ring of foam. This makes very minimal slick lacing. Smell: This is the highlight of the beer. It has lots of wonderful roaster coffee notes in the nose with some milder dark chocolate and dark maltiness for backup. Taste/Palate: The flavor is more subtle and brings a light medium bodied roasted coffee flavor and dark maltiness to the palate. It has a good balance and pleasant bitterness with some mild dark chocolate and mild hops in the background. On the tongue there is mild carbonation which gives it a very smooth, creamy and mostly slick feel. Notes: Overall it is a good average Porter with a great aroma and easy drinkability.

Beautiful pour & great mouthfeel w/ a decent taste. Love the dark pour w/ a big tan head & lacing. Aroma is slightly roasty. Taste is a touch thin but has hints of coffee. Not quite enough bitterness or complexity to make it great but it’s highly drinkable & overall a very solid beer!

Not the best coffee porter that ever existed but for an odd man out it was good enough to drink if handed to me. Bottle.

Beerathon (1668) - 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.
