Ballast Point is on to something with their Victory at Sea series. I prefer the coffee/vanilla but this is a great #2. bytemesis (8987) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Tap. Pours opaque black, medium creamy tan head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is full of coconut, roasty mocha. Flavor is again loaded with coconut, light sweet, medium bitter, roasty. Medium body. Super solid. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2016

Poured up on tap at the Tempe WoB where it exhibits a deep dark brown sort of mahogany colored body that supports a mocha head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted coffee, some burnt malts and an inviting toasted coconut sensation. The taste is similar as I get dark roasted coffee blended with a seamless roasted coconut sensation, a bit of earthy chocolate and malty to molasses like sweetness smoothing this out. Of the four I tried today this was the best. Very nice. Marheb (6030) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 18, 2016
(En fût au SD Taproom): Un beurre de noisette crémeux, de la fûmé, un espresso vif et une noix de coco grillée dans une riche décadence chocolatée. JaBier (8156) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 2/9/16. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of coconut, chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Coconut and coffee flavor. ElCapitan22 (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Pours a black color with really nice lacing and no head retention. Has an aroma of chocolate and toasted coconut. Tastes like toasted coconut and quite bitter. This was an excellent drink and one that I will look for again! brokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 4, 2016
On tap @ Beer Revolution. Black in color with a finger of khaki foam. Quite a nice roast, coffee, and coconut aroma. Plenty of vanilla, too. Bitter dark chocolate, fruity cocoa powder, and just a touch of bitter ash. There’s a really nice sweetness to it without being overdone. Good shredded coconut flavor, too. Nice beer.
