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.

750ml bottle. If you like effervescent coffee liqueur this is the beer for you. Pours black with a minimal head thats gone in an instant leaving no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and wood ash. Taste is very lightly sweet and medium bitter. Medium body, lively to fizzy carbonation (way too much for this beer), burnt malts, bitter chocolate and a long bitter finish. Alcohol is too prominent. I generally like this sort of beer but not this one.

Aroma: vanilla, medium roast coffee, cocoa, all in smooth succession. Appearance: espresso body, light brown and foamy head. Taste: sweet vanilla, caramel notes balanced by bitter coffee and bitter dark chocolate. palate: incredibly smooth mouth feel. creamy, like an oatmeal stout, with medium carb. mimics the texture and mouth feel of a barrel aged beer. outstanding.

Chewy, chocolatey yumminess. Complex flavors overshadowed a bit by the alcohol. Overall, an outstanding brew

AndresTM (434) - Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 Aroma: wood, vanilla at the forefront, fading into coffee and roasted malts. Also present are earth and ash, while caramel tempts and waters the mouth. Theres a prickling alcohol presence, but it blends in with the other notes. The mouthfeel is sublime: perfect combination of a medium-to-viscous body and smooth carbonation. It manages to be as distant from "watery" or "overcarbonated" as it is from "syrupy." On the tongue, it is sweet without being cloying and moderately bitter; it leaves an aftertaste of burnt wood, malts, a motherload of coffee, and just a hint of vanilla. I really wanted it to be a little more vanilla-forward than it is, but then again thats asking for perfection. Its a fantastic beer as it is, and Im glad it finally got to Texas. Itll be a regular in my fridge for sure.

Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours black. Aroma of roasted coffee beans, vanilla, dark chocolate. Rich flavor: coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, berries, a little woody/smokiness too. Fairly high ABV but hidden well within the great flavor. Would have again for sure!

sudomorph (1106) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Pours black with a one finger mocha head that thins fast. Aroma is huge, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and a touch of reese peanut butter cup. Weird and awesome! Taste is a big coffee bitter with a chocolate and vanilla finish. Low-medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Overall very good. Big coffee and vanilla aroma and taste. Great.

More coffee than vanilla for me out of this one. Heavy porter that needs a bit more malt to make it balanced.

Smak och doft av st vanilj, choklad, brnda toner och tydliga kaffearomer. Rund, len, med kraftfulla smaker med toner av saltlaktris och havssalt. Riktigt fin.
