Notes & Commercial Description:

Our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is a bold, smooth brew with just the right amount of sweetness. We infused this robust porter with whole vanilla beans and San Diego’s own Caffe Calabria coffee beans. The subtle roasted notes and minimal acidity of the cold brewed coffee, balances perfectly with the sweet caramel undertones of the malt, creating a winning combination for your palate.

A: This poured a nearly opaque black garnet with a little off white head.
S: It smelled like tons of coffee grounds, with a little artificial vanilla and bitter dark chocolate.
T: It tasted like bitter coffee grounds, with some artificial vanilla and semi-sweet chocolate. The aftertaste was somewhat clean and bittersweet.
M: It was a little thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This had a good scent and taste and body, but it wasn't as complex or delicious as I expected. The finish was a little rough, so it wasn't super easy to drink. It might improve with age, but was not that impressive fresh.
