A - The slightest of heads, possibly a quarter fingers worth, of audibly fizzy tan colored head quickly fades leaving a swirling vibrant lacing comprised of bursting bubbles... A deep dark brooding brown color that leaks in a bit of light which helps display inviting ruby red colored highlights... Upon very close examination some very small bubbled rapid carbonation can be seen...
S - A great nose, dominated by coffee... Not being experience with Alta Gracia coffee, I can only say that this smells of fresh harvested high-quality coffee beans... Some roasted malts... Perhaps some very faints of caramel, toffee, and maybe even vanilla...
T - Freshly brewed medium roast Latin American coffee... Roasted malts... A hint of caramel... Some faint choclate notes... Perhaps some vanilla notes on the deep finish... Quite tasty...
M - Medium bodied... Lots of fizzy carbonation... A bit of a burnt texture... Even though this one seems a bit dry, tThe finish is surprisingly "juicy..."
D - A wonderful marriage of coffee and beer... Deep, rich, and slightly sophisticated... After a not so favorable Otter Creek experience early on in my beer geekdom, I was leery of trying other OC/W offerings, but this one more than restores my faith... I'm happy I invested in a sixers of this and recommend it to either beer or coffee lovers (but hopefully both)...

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.
