COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

"OOHHH MY" as George Takei would say. This was truly a treat for the senses. Poured at a perfect temperature into the tulip glass. Black as the heart of Davy Jones, this was almost to a point that I wouldn’t fault someone for thinking it is a stout, the line is blurred for sure. Traditional porter aromas combined with latte or cappuccino and vanilla. Taste is the same with liquid velvet finish. Wonderful.

This is a bit two faced. there is a bitterness up front in your face, and then it gives away to a burst of rich roasted coffee and then an explosion of vanilla. I think the bitterness get’s away with itself though. Said that but this is a bit good. I have this from the tap. I have this in a bottle too. I’m looking forward to compere them.

Pours dark and has a caramel head. Taste has hints of coco, coffee and vanilla. This is now one of my new favorites.

RexTalionis (3485) - FINLAND - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle 65 cl. Pours really dark, almost black in color with a small tan head. Vanilla and roasted coffee in aroma at first. Actually it’s a quite nice mix between these two here. Roasted coffee, cocoa powder, vanilla and a bit of dark fruity sweetness in taste. Smooth mouthfeel. Very intense roasted notes with vanilla staying upfront all the time. Excellent winter warmer, which leaves one with some nice roasted coffee and vanilla notes lingering all over.

kappldav123 (5847) - GERMANY - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle looks really good but a bit complex. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts very strong, intense malty-roasty, some earthy notes. Notes of coffee and liquorice. Finish a bit milder, less intense malty, still soft roasty notes. Quite drinkable for its strenght. Great beer!

Very well balanced porter, the coffee and vanilla tones are blended in well and do not over power the caramel malts.
