Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Coconut Victory at Sea takes our popular Imperial Porter to another place. We added sweet roasted coconut to our robust porter brewed with Caffe Calabria coffee and vanilla, the perfect complement to this beer’s subtly roasty intensity. A favorite at our annual Victory at Sea Day, but it’s worth enjoying anytime you need to be transported.

Pours a deep black with about a thumb of head. Head retention is decent, lacing is quite nice.

Smell is a coconut cavalcade. It blends nicely with the vanilla to give a sweet aroma that reminds me of a mounds bar.

Taste is where the base beer comes back. In addition to the coconut,the vanilla and coffee shine. The three flavors battle with each other for dominance, but as it warms I find they all play well together.

Feel is medium, which is nice for the style,and carbonation is on point. There is a coating finish that leaves you tasting the coffee, and then a lingering coconut.

When I poured this, I wasn't sure I was going to like it. The coconut aroma was overpowering. As it warmed though, it got better. While it may not show up on my favorites list, it is a good beer.

Personal note: beer 1600, full review 755.

Found the coconut flavor overly sweet, outmuscling coffee and vanilla flavors. Roastiness came through more as the beer warmed. Probably my least favorite of the Victory at Sea variants.

Pours dark brown. Aroma is of an alcoholic mounds bar. Taste is similar. Feel is light-medium carbonation. Overall, this was a nice edition of the Victory at Sea series, but having had the High Westified Barrel Aged version, Ive already experienced the coconut. And it's very present in this beer - almost too present.

Bottle. Loads of coconut but definitely tastes like banana boat/big adjunct artificial flavor.

Pitch black with a thin, beige-brown head that leaves a lot of lacing.

Nose: Rosted coconut, vanilla, coffee, rye, roasted malt and toffee.
Taste: Dry, roasted coffee, espresso, roasted malt, coconut, vanilla and bitter, dark chocolate.
Mouth: Full body. Light carbonated. Bitter ending.

As I'm a lover of coconut I do like this! The nose take me to Florida and coconut sunscreen oil and I like it! i've always wanted to drink that oil...
