Ballast Point Victory at Sea

type: Imperial porter
origin: San Diego, CA, USA
price: $8.30/22 oz

Matt, Sambo and I had just got back from chugging beers in the theater, watching True Grit, and we were feeling a bit sluggish. As we found, Victory works surprisingly well as a pick-me-up. You can taste three things here:

* the 10% abv,
* vanilla bean, and
* coffee bean (from local favorites Caffe Calabria - they have superior espresso beans)

I think the beer is a little too alcoholic, but it works well with the beans. My review reads: "pow pow pow. Fuck yeah."
