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.

Beautiful beer. Great color and a great head that sticks around for awhile. The aroma is the best part, it reeks of coffee and gives off nice toasty whiffs, as is to be expected, but there's also a wonderful hint of almost marshmallowy sweetness hidden down in there.

The taste is great. Frequently the vanilla stouts will be a bit dialed-back, but that's not the case here. This is a stouty stout, with lots of flavors vying for your attention. It all comes together really well.
