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.

Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee, roasted malt, and tar. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of coffee combined with medium notes of roasted malt and wood, leading to a bitter finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Tap at Pizzeria Paradiso. Amber color with a light tan head. Aroma of coffee and vanilla beans. Flavor of burnt coffee, like a weak Starbucks. Bitter and acidic with weak body. Disappointing.
