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.

Strong authentic coffee flavor, roasted malt holds its own I'm getting some hop bitterness, alcohol well hidden, maybe just a little too much carbonation, otherwise a very very good imperial porter ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rami Rami is drinking a Victory at Sea by Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits at Konstruktorska Business Center Kawa fajna i mocna, wanili malo, palonosci sporo, wytrawny, lekko kwaskowate posmaki, daje w sumie takie suche, popiolowe wrazenie. Ryli niezly
Rami Rami: W pokojowej temperaturze: nieco wiecej wanilii, ciut slodyczy wiecej i robi sie polwytrawne, lekko wzrasta tez kwaskowatosc...

Dziękuję Pan Mesjasz. Nie zawiodło - bardzo intensywne, palone, dużo kawy i wanilii, długi, goryczkowy finisz. Trochę mało ciała. Świetne.

BeerInHeaven (401) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2017
pours nearly black with a dense slowly forming medium brown head. Aroma is roasted malts with coffee notes. Thick creamy mouth feel. Big black coffee taste with hints of dark chocolate and vanilla. Coffee bitter fades in. Solid toasted malt presence. Pleasant fading bitter and warming finish with some faint lingering vanilla. Outstanding!

Black with a medium beige head, spotted lacing. Strong aroma of coffee and cocoa. Taste is all about quality coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts. Absolutely delicious! Very smooth, full bodied and no booze feeling, here we are talking about a top porter!

jgb9348 (5993) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Deep dark brown coloured body with a nice, dense, four centimetre tall tan head with about 80% opacity in the body. Aroma of pure roasted malt, deeply roasted/burnt coffee and a good dose of vanilla and lighter oak and sweet notes. Full-bodied; Strong rich roasted malt flavours dominate with a lot of grain, alcohol, vanilla and especially coffee flavours that show well and have a lot of complexity throughout the sample. Aftertaste shows more roast from the malt and coffee than anything else, but the coffee and rich vanilla are strong as well, as is the oak, alcohol and rich toffee and caramelised sugars which hit at the very end. Overall, a nice beer that shows a ton of complex flavours, all balanced relatively well, and still provide a great body, smooth complexity and rich beer that is perfect when the weather gets a touch cold. I sampled this 32 ounce growler fill purchased from Whole Foods in Fair Lakes (Fairfax), Virginia on 25-January-2017 for US$5,00 (best deal ever) sampled at home in Washington on 27-January-2017.
