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.

Lilja (2785) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2013
Smak och doft av söt vanilj, choklad, brända toner och tydliga kaffearomer. Rund, len, med kraftfulla smaker med toner av saltlaktris och havssalt. Riktigt fin.

Franzen (500) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2013
Intense roasted aroma with lots of chocolate. Unmashed malt, vanilla, toffe and some coffe is there as well.
Really dark red almost black colour with nice thick beige head.
Taste is intense in chocolate, vanilla and toffee with some marshmalllow. The sweet chocolate and toffee taste is nicely finished of with a coffee bitterness and than return a bit in the finish which is more vanilla and chocolate than bitterness
Full body with average carbonation and creamy texture. Could have had less carbonation for my taste
A really nice beer. I really love this one not much that could been improved, just minor details.

Vignale (3317) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2013
Flaska från SB. En rejäl och välbalanserad Imperial kaffeporter. Kaffedoft- och smak är örtig och drar åt grön chili mot botten av en rejäl och maffig rostad chokladbotten och söta vaniljtoner. Riktigt god.

blankboy (7216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
[My bottle (660ml) shared with mds, jercraigs & mabel.] Pours a very dark brown with a small semi-lasting bubbly tan head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Chocolaty flavour along with roasted malt, some coffee and vanilla. Light bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. Very good, it’s so chocolaty!

Hoppsan (151) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours smooth, thick black with hints of Amber. Nice thick head. Lots of coffee, chocolate and vanilla in aroma and taste. Surprisingly well balanced, with high carbonation which gives you a fresh mouth feel and extremely high drinkability. The only words I'm a say today are "beer", and "thank you" :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Linnet (1673) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Ar: coffee upfront, ashy, dry, heavy roastiness, then vanilla kicks in, subtle, but noticable, ABV very well hidden, chocolate cake, nutty, very refined. Ap: black colour, medium beige head, lacing. T: big bite, lots of sweet vanilla, light acidity, heavy roastiness. Best vanilla infused flavour I’ve had to date, salty. P: full bodied, soft carbonation, sweet, warming and roasty finish. O: marvelous.

jercraigs (9835) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
2013-10-10. Black body with a modest tan head. 3++ Aroma of coffee has an almost hot pepper like quality to it that I do not care for, muted vanilla character. Flavour is similar with a sweet malt core and an odd melange of coffee and vanilla that has similar pepper like overtones as in the aroma. Smooth average plus bodied palate, peasant carbonation. 3+ Decent but a bit disappointing for me personally. Bottle shared by Blankboy.
