Style: American Porter

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.

Was lucky enough to visit Ballast Point tasting room in Little Italy and had this along with 2 BA versions, all excellent beers. Liked it enough to include in my SD beers to be shipped home package, definitely recommend trying.

Incredible imperial porter, probably the best I've ever tasted. Had it on tap at the Iron Monkey in Jersey City, which is an excellent beer bar, by the way.

High alcohol content, but it's masked so well by the chocolate, coffee, vanilla and sweet malts. Just an overall great flavor. It's smooth, but has a nice long and sweet finish that was just dry enough to make me consider having a second.

Overall, this is just an outstanding stout. Great for a snowy winter day or after a meal. Wish I had bought some and tried more when I lived in San Diego. I've never once seen Ballast Point for sale or on tap anywhere in Colorado, which is a damn shame.
