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- Poured into a porter glass. Ebony black - no light will penetrate. Rapid 1/2 inch head quickly fading to lace and edging.

S- Espresso, dark chocolate, malt.

T- Great! lightly sweet very expensive black coffee. Medium dark chocolate and mild vanilla.

M- Medium carbonation dissipates rapidly with a medium mouth feel. Smooth finish hiding alcohol well.

O- I like many beers but this is one of my favorites. Excellent coffee porter - an easy two glass beer at one sitting. Goes well with light desert fair but will remain the star of the palate show. I will seek it out again.
