BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Super stoked to try this one, one of my top wants, always eluded me...

A--Plenty of lacing, nice opaque hue.

S--Coffee and chocolate really come through in the nose along with touch of vanilla, very nice.

T--I really can taste both the dark chocolate/mocha in this guy, not really a lot of vanilla which I was hoping for, but still very tasty...

M--nice silky mouthfeel.

D--I am really happy to get my hands on this, and look forward to more of it in an upcoming trade. Definitely an excellent brew, highly recommended...
