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.

Black with brown head - Roasted malt aroma with some coffee as well - Good malt body with coffee and bitterness, and there is olso some alcohol in the back - Lingering roasted malt and coffee finish - This was good, but the alcohol heat comes a little bit to much through

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 Pours a dark black with a brown head. Very robust with excellent vanilla, coffee, and chocolate flavors. Very smooth for the high alcohol content. Well done

Very good rich and tasty imperial port that I sampled on tap at Eureka Burger in Redlands, CA. I really enjoyed the flavors of espresso and chocolate that dominate this beer and really accommodate the dark malts. Cant wait to try this porter again.

Why they call this a porter is beyond me. The is a stout compared to many stouts Ive had over time. Wonderful Spicey mouthfeel with coffee and chocolate as the main flavor. This is a wonderfully balanced "porter" that stands out among other beers. Top notch and well worth seeking out.

Black pour with small tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and licorice. Flavor of more chocolate, hint of vanilla and espresso. Bittersweet thick finish with great mouthfeel. Excellent beer.

Bottle. Black with a tan head that settles to a cm and lasts well. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, white pepper, fudge, coconut oil. Quite silky, lowish carbonation. Some unintegrated alcohol. Sweet with loads of coffee, some dark chocolate, vanilla, fudge. The coffee seems surprisingly fresh with berry and spicy overtones as if freshly ground. Maybe thats partly good vanilla, but it works well anyway. Discreet bitterness and a little astringency sweep the sweetness away pretty effectively at the end. As usual for me l with this sort of thing, theres a lurking sense of "surely this is too much coffee it should be mainly beer because reasons" but it is really nicely put together and the coffees vibrant.

Bottle to plastic glass Smells like a coffee crisp, coffee, chocolate, vanilla wafer. Deep black with a creamy tan head. Coffee, coffee, coffee, some sweet caramel, but coffee! Too much coffee for my tastes.
