Two of the world’s oldest beverages join forces to conquer your palate. Victory at Sea embodies the art of masterful brewing by infusing a velvety Imperial Porter with pure vanilla flavor and specially-selected, hand roasted coffee. The addition of cold brewed coffee to the beer lends a subtle roasted flavor to this robust imperial porter, blending perfectly with rich vanilla and caramel undertones. By uniting two San Diego brewing traditions, Caffe Calabria freshly brewed coffee and Ballast Point beer, we have successfully created an artisanal masterpiece.

dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle sampled on 3/21. Best before 10/25/13, whoops. Coffee color with slight orange hue, medium creamy tan head. Smell is rich and appealing: roasted berries, burnt toffee, caramel latte, vanilla, complex malts. Taste is unified and hard to pick out individual elements, but there’s coffee, plums, surprising bitterness fading into bitter cocoa powder. A little past its prime but still solid.

Cristobal37 (756) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 22, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2016 A joy. Smells like a hazelnut cream coffee. Not a lot of head. Very heavy nut malt coffee and vanilla. Long bitter aftertaste. Really creamy and nutty with delicious coffee without any acidity. Way bomb.

Pours jet black, smelling strongly of coffee beans with a small tan head. "Robust" is one way of putting it, extreme taste of coffee up-front with a sweet vanilla taste after. Notes of malt, earthy grain and dark chocolate. Its very good but that comes with a powerful taste, also if you don’t like coffee I doubt you would enjoy this.
