Coffee and vanilla balanced to perfection. Hanging out at the 10% threshold, Ballast Point’s Victory At Sea is a delightful departure from the more bitter and chocolaty Porter varietals. The vanilla floats right out of the glass and really smooths the taste out, meeting with the coffee just enough to cut back the sweetness on the back end. The alcohol is subdued but present.
