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.

Black with small beige head. Coffee, heavy roasted barley, ash, vanilla some chocolate. Taste is balanced with a mild sweetness and finishes with some bitterness. (coffee, vanilla, chocolate, bitterness). Well integrated alcohol! Really nice!

w całokształcie cholernie kawowe i mocno palone piwero, bez kompromisów, ale i zbyt jednowymiarowe, jak na imperial stout to trochę brakuje mi ciała, ale i tak smakuje.

65 cl bottle, served in snifter. Poured almost completely black with three finger tan head. Aroma: roasted espresso beans, vanilla, dark chocolate, dark fruit. Taste: strong espresso, vanilla, caramel fudge, dark chocolate, salty licorice, dates, dark fruit, pepper, soy sauce, butterscotch, roasted nuts. It’s all about coffee and vanilla in this brew and I am lovin’ it. Medium body with a roasted coffee infused bittersweet finish. Delicious imperial porter!!!

A top 5 coffee beers you can hope to find. We’ll balanced qith just the right amount of carbonation provides the perfect mouth feel for this kind of beer. Alcohol is well hidden giving you a rich coffee-chocolate stout that is very drinkable.

Bottle from Beer Republic, 66 cl sample. Dark color, medium frothy head. Aroma of dry vanilla, coffee and roast. Bit sweet in taste, dry vanilla, coffee. Bit powdery instead of creamy and smooth. Expected more actually. Or maybe it is because Im major pissed off by what RB is doing at the moment.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 This one is the best Ballast Point beer to me. Always way beyond my expectation.

This one is way more impressive than I remember it being. Smells of coconut, chocolate, and coffee. Appearance is thick black with a medium thin head. It tastes of rich mocha, vanilla, and oak. Very smooth, velvety, and easy drinking for a 10% abv imperial bomb. Good for a hot ass sweltering day of blaring Neurosis records and making homemade garlic chili cheese fries. oh yeah and wrestling cant forget wresling

Bottle shared thanks to sjorgogo. Pours black with a small tan head. Roasty coffee, with a slight sweet fruit presence, tons of vanilla, hops still present as well, chocolaty. Vanilla sweetness and roasty coffee bitterness. Over medium body, low carbonation.

Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Black with quite big tan head. Lots of coffee, vanilla, sweet chocolate, grassy hops, toffee, light herbs, a hint of roasted coconut. Medium sweet and bitter. Over medium bodied with grainy cocoa feel and light dry finish. Very nice.
