A: Pours the color of rootbeer, dark brown with an auburn tinge to it. Somewhat cloudy. Off white head dissipates quickly to a thin skim on the top. No lacing to speak of.
S: Nice sweet fresh brewed coffee aroma. Get a bit of vanilla bean in there as well, supported by a chocolatey malt aroma.
T: Taste just didn't live up to the aroma on this beer. The coffee flavor is watered down, it's there but it's more of a background flavor then being prominent. The sweeter chocolate
tone is there as well, but again it's just not that prominent, and the vanilla is completely absent. Bit of acidic bitterness as well.
M: Came across as quite watery to me, thin, and had some prickly carbonation.
O: It's an OK tasting beer, but well off of the quality I've had in other good porters, not to mention the better coffee porters.

Alta Gracia Coffee Porter is a beer I am very anxious to taste as Porters are my current favorite style, I am a coffee fiend, and an advocate of all things organic. It's appearance is lovely and suitable, a deep oily brown with a 1/4" tan head of suds siting on top. I found the aroma to be very very sweet and fresh, definitely a pleasant surprise. A vanilla aspect is dominant and there are hints of roasted malts and coffee beans in the background. The flavor itself is filled with creamy, sweetened coffee, toasted grains, and the slightest sweet citrus touch as well. I'm impressed in regards to the coffee flavor - how it comes through and the quality of it. This is a very balanced beverage, it has a light and silky mouthfeel, and is the perfect summer libation for those who shun the season's typical choices.
