A- Dark still body looks completely dead, with some large bubbles surrounding the rim no head to speak of.
S- Ground coffee takes over your sense of smell, smells like fresh grounds to me. On a second whiff it smells even stronger than grounds, almost like someone cracked opened a bean in front of you and you'd be sniffing it.
T- Bitter black freshly brewed coffee with dark chocolate melting inside of your cup. The vanilla wasnt too predominant for me, more of a backround support flavor.
M- With all this brews robustness I would expect a stronger show for its mouthfeel, heres with this brew lost points for me. Thin and almost watery. I would like it to be thicker for a brew this big on taste.
D- Very drinkable, the thinness of the body actually helps this area. I dont know the abv but it doesnt seem high at all.

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.
