COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two of the worlds 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.

Bottle share. Pours a dark brown, dark ruby edges, generous tan cap reduces to a thin rope. Aroma of roasted coffee, earth, woodiness, dark chocolate, vanilla, plum. Taste is an upfront bitterness mellowed by a sweet character. Long dry finish, sticky.

Bottle. Black with tan head. Massive aroma, huge amount of vanilla and coffee, its quite insane, creme brulee with cold coffee. Similar taste, massive vanilla bomb with coffee, slightly roasty. Thick and sweet. Delicious

Mrkt brun, p grnsen till svart l med grddigt ljusbrunt skum. Kaffe, karamell och ntter i doften. Detsamma terkommer i smaken tillsammans med vanilj och choklad. Vlbalanserad, smakrik porter som dljer sin alkohol vl.

TXBadger (2658) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Pours a very dark black oil like color with the same type of viscosity, with tan head. Vanilla, caramel, and roasted coffee on the nose; follows onto the palate. The coffee and vanilla dominate the palate more so than the caramel note, it sort of disappears. Finishes with a nice chocolatey type sweetness.

maneliquor (3496) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a thick khaki head. Nose is heavily roasted coffee bordering on bitter espresso notes which compliment the sweet vanilla bean and milk chocolate throughout. Not the biggest fan of coffee beers but these guys are pulling this off so far. The milk chocolate in this is silky smooth and goes hand in hand with the sweet vanilla. The coffee is everywhere and there are no sharp bitter or ashy edges. Those three major notes meld together sensationally. Sublime stuff. With a little age on this though, I dont think it shone as well as I was expecting. Quite excessively ashy through the coffee. A better beer fresh personally

Dark brown/black with a good beige head. Aroma is coffee, blackcurrant, roasted nuts, cocoa, wood. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, roasty on the palate with a slightly warming booze finish and a hint of astringency. Taste is vanilla, roast coffee, molasses, chocolate.
