Ballast Point Victory at Sea
Victory At Sea Imperial Porter, 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 traditions, Caffe Calabria freshly brewed coffee and Ballast Point beer, we have successfully created an artisanal masterpiece.

Robust Series Limited Release Stout Victory at Sea Coffee Vanilla Imperial Porter If you are looking for a mouthful then this beer is for you. Immediately after pouring this beer you'll notice it is as dark as the creepy label suggests. The head consists of of tight to medium sized bubbles that leaves rings around your pint glass reminding you how much your taking from each draw. The nose is heavy on the vanilla and sweet caramel. Once you get a mouthful you'll taste the roasted barley and with 10% alcohol, it's no surprise that this is a full bodied beer. The finish was nice and left the back of my throat dry which was a nice surprise in a beer this rich. This beer gets the thumbs up and comes recommended for any Stout/Porter drinker.
