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.

Coffee flavor is strong; vanilla less so. That's a porter for you. (I guess the vanilla takes the edge off the coffee a bit.)

Pours a black with a thick brown head. Immediately smell the coffee and chocolate. The taste is coffee initially with a smooth finish. I could only have about one of these a night but enjoy every single second of it. Really glad I bought it before they sold out.
