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.

Jet Black with a tan soapy head

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

Mmmm...Black coffee w Vanilla cream. Tasty. Buttery as it warms

Creamy but with appropriate carbonation. Maybe a little more than the style. A plus for me. Thick in the mouth

An excellent coffee Porter, up there with Flying Dog Gonzo Porter, one of my faves.

Pours dark with a mocha head with nice retention. Smell is straight brewed coffee. I personally don't get much vanilla but I don't mind because the coffee alone is great. First thing i noticed is the nice chewy mouth feel that only enhances the flavors of the porter. Flavor is straight coffee. Overall I still really enjoyed this even though i didn't get much vanilla.
