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.

JStax (4122) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. Pours a dense black with a khaki colored head of foam. Aroma is heavy coffee with a smoky fruitiness to it. Taste is that coffee again. Maybe a little too much coffee. Thick, velvety mouthfeel.

radagast83 (6106) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a dark brown, almost black color with a thick creamy tan head. Aroma was heavy on vanilla, roasted malts, coffee notes and some chocolate. Flavor was about the same, with some fresh notes of coffee, chocolate and plenty of vanilla. Pretty darn enjoyable.

BMMillsy (1787) - Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2013 Pours darkdark brown to blak with a very small mocha colored head. Earthy peppery coffe on the nose, some roast with a tad of vanilla and molasses. Biye up front that soothes into lots of chocolate on the palate. Second sip is a bit more earthy coffee. Don’t get a lot of vanilla, but it lingers in the aftertaste just a hint. Pretty prickly carbonation, but not too much. Medium mouthfeel but very drinkable (one of the lighter imperial porters i have had). Very nice beer.

IvoR (90) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Very bold and lasting flavor of roasted coffee, malt with hints of caramel and toffee. Quite dirnkable for the amount of alcohol that it packs. Outstanding porter.

Coffee and cocoa aroma. Dark with thick tan head. Lots of coffee. A mild sweetness that may be the vanilla but I can't really tell. Earthy undertones. Clean finish. Slight alcohol warmth at the end.
