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.

Garlic_of_Doom (621) - SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a small espresso coloured head consisting of tiny bubbles with some large here and there. Really nice! Aroma has luxurious coffee and chocolate as well as loads of vanilla on the end. Faint raisin as well. Taste has vanilla, marshmallows, coffee, cream, roasted malt, dark chocolate, salt liquorice, slight alcohol and that typical porter tartness. Full body with quite high carbonation, round and smooth mouth feel. After taste is roasted, grapefruit bitter and lingers on for long.
Fantastic Imperial Porter! If only the after taste had been a bit more balanced with the other sensations it’d be even better.
