BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States
ballastpoint.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

Great victory at sea mixed with good coconut flavor
It's a great beer that is still present with the added flavor it's not like the other variant where the Victory at Sea gets lost in in the added flavor very well done

Coconut, coffee, vanilla and roasted malts what a combo. I love coconut to begin with and the coffee taste with the roasted malts set this one to the liking. Dark color little head went down smooth and just an overall good beer

This pours a jet black with cocoa colored foam. Smells like toasted coconut and coffee mocha. Smoothly roasty with just the perfect balance of coffee, chocolate and toasted coconut notes. Fantastic.

Ballast Point Brewing Company - Victory At Sea - Coconut. 10% ABV. 22oz bomber split between a teku and a tulip glass.

Look: Appears as black in the glass, with brown highlights in the light. A one finger porous head lingers on top before ending up as stagnant lacing.

Smell: Coconut. In one word. In more than one word, coconut, along with notes of coffee, caramel, vanilla, and cream. Very sweet and fresh.

Feel: Medium bodied, close to stout level. Slight carbonation, but very smooth.

Taste: Straight up coconut, backed by the coffee and caramel flavors. Has a slight bitterness, but not boozy at all. Finishes sweet, and lingers as such.

Overall: Damn, this is so close to Last Snow, I had make sure I didn't copy it's review. Simply amazing. I hope to see this again in the future since Last Snow stays in Florida.

Pitch black with a ruby finger when held to the light. Topped with a finger of creamy beige head that leaves a foamy lacing.

Smells of suntanning lotion like coconut. Creamy, buttery and rich. Coconut dessert with hints of cocoa.

Amazing taste of coconut dessert as on the nose, very predominant on the tongue. Finishes with a blast of dark chocolate, and a hint of tarred, char bitterness.

Thick but foamy and smooth body. Moderate and foamy carbonation.

Drinking on tap at Namtons House Bar in Chiang Mai, May 29th 2017. Fantastic brew!

Incredible is an understatement. Nose is dominated by delicious fresh toasted coconut. In the background is coffee, vanilla, chocolate. Taste follows suit. Lots of coconut up front which fades out just a touch as it warms. Balanced very nicely. Coconut is very detectable and delicious but doesn't overpower the base beer.
