Ballast Point Brewing Company

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

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.

One of the best beers I've had. I typically don't like dark beer, but this made me a believer. It felt like chocolate milk and tasted like espresso. I had it on draft, but will definitely pick up a six pack next time I can find it.
