Ballast Point Victory at Sea


A big porter crafted to weather any storm.
Our Ballast Point Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is a bold, smooth brew with just the right amount of sweetness. We infused this robust porter with vanilla 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.

Although the winters in San Diego don’t get too brutal, the brewers at Ballast Point wanted a warmer, Winter Ale that brings comfort on those days when you can see your breath. This Imperial Porter clocks in at 10% ABV and gets most of its roasted flavor from coffee beans prepared locally at Caffe Calabria on 30th Street. Winter Ales traditionally have a spice, and in this beer we chose vanilla to round out this very special “big” beer. Our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is infused with ¾ ounce cold brewed coffee per pint.
