From the brewer

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.

Harsh, but simple. Mellows out a bit over time.

Clearly related to the Sea Monster. Opens with a vanilla bourbon sweetness but fades quickly into the same smooth, almost salty finish. Different, but equally good.
