Pours a very dark brown bordering on black, with a thin tan head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is all french roast coffee and espresso, along with a bit of dark fruit, very dark chocolate, a bit of lactose and some burnt bread. The flavor is a bit one dimensional, with big arabica coffee and espresso, some dark chocolate, burnt bread, hints of dark fruit and alcohol. The mouthfeel is light and smooth and drinkability is limited by the intense coffee flavor. This is a decent coffee beer, but it lacks the complexity of the better coffee stouts/porters (pipeline porter, FBS, Bell's Java, etc.)

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.
