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.

Big beer. Black, with dark brown lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate and cocoa powder. Taste is very heavy on the coffee, with very dark roasted bitterness. The barrel aged version is a bit more balanced given the additional sweetness from the barrels...

bergstaden (2332) - Røros, NORWAY - DEC 19, 2013
Black with brown head - Roasted malt aroma with some coffee as well - Good malt body with coffee and bitterness, and there is olso some alcohol in the back - Lingering roasted malt and coffee finish - This was good, but the alcohol heat comes a little bit to much through

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 Pours a dark black with a brown head. Very robust with excellent vanilla, coffee, and chocolate flavors. Very smooth for the high alcohol content. Well done

Very good rich and tasty imperial port that I sampled on tap at Eureka Burger in Redlands, CA. I really enjoyed the flavors of espresso and chocolate that dominate this beer and really accommodate the dark malts. Can’t wait to try this porter again.

Why they call this a porter is beyond me. The is a stout compared to many stouts I’ve had over time. Wonderful Spicey mouthfeel with coffee and chocolate as the main flavor. This is a wonderfully balanced "porter" that stands out among other beers. Top notch and we’ll worth seeking out.

Black pour with small tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and licorice. Flavor of more chocolate, hint of vanilla and espresso. Bittersweet thick finish with great mouthfeel. Excellent beer.
