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.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2014
Big aroma of coffee grounds. Body is medium full and alc is hardly noticeable. Coffee Is pronounced as is hop bitterness. Sweetness is quite low in this brew, but it is just enough malt backbone to balance the hops. Basically a easy drinking dark ale that doesn’t explode with alc. Coffee is the main theme, and it’s not as chewy, dry and acrid, or burnt as an Imperial stout.

czlowiekwiadro (1240) - POLAND - APR 13, 2014
bardzo intensywny kawowo-waniliowo-czekoladowy zapach. ciemne, klarowne, ze słabą pianą. w smaku cierpkie od kawy, alkoholu i paloności. słodkie od wanilii i słodów. do tego czekolada. genialne piwo.

MHOSKINS (389) - Cleveland, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2014
Simply one of the best Ports ever brewed. Best enjoyed when aged several months. Great vanilla flavor. Drink solo. Not as enjoyable when sampled with other flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (3429) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bomber, cellar aged 1 year and shared with ck1 and my other brother. (notes say Fischmans, so perhaps it was me purchasing) Has a black pour with a tan head. Aroma has nuts and chocolate and light cherries. Taste is of bittersweet chocolate, nuts, cocoa powder and some roast. Smooth and well balanced. On a night of really good stuff, it was the best of the night.

3.5
dfroms (477) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle sampled on 3/21. Best before 10/25/13, whoops. Coffee color with slight orange hue, medium creamy tan head. Smell is rich and appealing: roasted berries, burnt toffee, caramel latte, vanilla, complex malts. Taste is unified and hard to pick out individual elements, but there’s coffee, plums, surprising bitterness fading into bitter cocoa powder. A little past its prime but still solid.
