COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

4.2
wvhoran (477) - Tasmania, - MAY 29, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2014 Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan head. Heavy malt, chocolate, and sweet coffee aroma. Flavour is a terrific balance of dark malts, wood, vanilla, chocolate, and milk coffee. Starts fairly sweet but leaves off with a reasonable bitterness. A big beer. The last of a few good beers this night, Patrick passed out on the couch halfway through this. Eventually woke up startled and quaffed the rest.

Zakoon (488) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2014
Black with light brown head. Notes of liquorice root, vanilla and roasted coffee. Taste is liqourice root, nice vanilla, chocolate and a long lasting taste of espresso. Full body with a thin texture, medium carbonation with as mentioned before a long lasting espresso taste.

3.9
SlackerMads (3596) - DENMARK - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. Black with a medium sized light brown head. Lots of coffee, earthy, roasted malt, vanilla, hazelnut. Medium/full body, oily/creamy texture, soft/medium carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Has a hazelnut coffee character to it and serves well at breakfast though it seems to accelerate the Stella 3 headache from yesterday.

The darkness is spreading! More coffee than I remember.... Maybe this is a fresher bottle.

XaenDovet (1281) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
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.

4
TXBadger (2811) - 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.

3.8
Yorker (2119) - Holstebro, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate - with a slightly bitter finish.

3.9
Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, fresh coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Flavor was smooth and creamy with dark bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, vanilla bean and dark roasted malts. Oily texture, med-full body, soft carbonation

4.5
BenH (3431) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. Black with tan head. Massive aroma, huge amount of vanilla and coffee, it’s quite insane, creme brulee with cold coffee. Similar taste, massive vanilla bomb with coffee, slightly roasty. Thick and sweet. Delicious
