12oz. bottle into shaker pint on 8/14/11.
A - A chocolate brown liquid emerged from the bottle with little effervescence and a wispy tan head that vanished, save for a sparse ring of retention around the edge of the glass, leaving no lacing behind.
S - Iced coffee, nutty fudge and vanilla comprise the aroma. The coffee character is apparent but not dominating, as with most coffee beers.
T - Vanilla comes to mind first, followed by an iced coffee aspect with a light to medium roast character. Cocoa and nutty notes add complexity and complement the coffee and vanilla flavors. Finishes with a tinge of earthy bitterness accompanied by a hint of nutty astringency.
M - Medium bodied, though a little thin in the backend, with an oily texture and fairly bristly carbonation. Bittersweet finish with mild astringency on the palate.
D - Very good coffee porter overall with plenty else going on besides coffee. Try one for breakfast.

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.
