Ballast Point Victory at Sea

July 6, 2013

Overall Grade:A-
Taste:A-
Drinkability:C-
Aroma:A

Very rich vanilla porter.

Starts sweet and slightly creamy, with vanilla bean flavor before taking a sharp bitter turn upon finish.

It's quite bitter for a porter, lingering and masking the vanilla sweetness. You can compensate for this by letting it sit along the tip of your tongue for a few seconds. I really like the vanilla flavor. I could do with less lingering bitterness.

Vanilla and roasted malt aroma and some hop presence.
