Wolaver's Alta Gracia Coffee Porter
I picked up a bottle of Wolaver's Alta Gracia Coffee Porter from D's Six Pax and Dogz in Pittsburgh. This beer is certified organic, from the beer ingredients to the coffee that is added. It has a deep dark brown color with a thin tan bubbly head. There is a strong and rich coffee aroma with this beer. The taste is full of bitter coffee and bitter chocolate with some vanilla lacing. It finishes a little dry. There is no alcohol content posted on the website, but I would guess between 6% and 7% ABV. I thought that this coffee porter was decent and drinkable, but somewhat pedestrian. It didn't stand out as being a bad beer, but it did not stand out as being a great beer either. It's worth a try, but don't go out of your way for it.
