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.

This is a fantastic beer. Off the tap at Naja’s in Redondo Beach, CA. Nice and thick, robust toasted malt flavor with hints of coffee and vanilla. I could drink a ton of this beer. Would recommend to anyone.

Bottle Pours a good deep black with a nice tan head. The head lasts well and laces excellnetly. Has a good aroma of chocolate, coffee, mocha, and hints of vanilla. Carbonation is perfect. The flavor is awesome. Blended perfect. Good hearty coffee, with hints of vanilla and nuts. Some chocolate. The alcohol is unnoticable. Has a thick texture. A full body. Awesome finish with a good sweet aftertaste. This is by far my favorite Porter and a great beer.

Tap at Capone’s. Pours a deep brown with a nice tan head. Aroma is like walking into a good coffee shop first thin in the morning, coffee, sweet vanilla and chocolate. Silky smooth mouthfeel with a wonderfully balanced array of flavors, chocolate, sweet vanilla, coffee and light roast. They hit this one out of the park.

Pours an opaque deep brown with a thin brown head and beautiful lacing from the 22oz. bottle: USA just tied Canada for the Olympic gold medal championship game with seconds left!!! Rushed rating... Nose of vanilla, coffee, molasses, roasted malts, and pipe tobacco. Flavor of vanilla latte, caramel syrup, roasted malts, molasses, and some tobacco. Minimal carbonation with a slight back-of-throat warming. Roasted malts, bitter coffee beans, and light vanilla take the end. And... Canada just won the gold, but what a game and what a beer to enjoy it with! Drinkability: Tasty and delicious. Pairing: Rich seven layer chocolate lava cake. Or a prime rib. Rebuy: Yes. #311 on 28022010, DG.
