Most of you already know that I love a good coffee stout or porter. Now what you may not know is that I am very fond of chocolate and peanut butter together also! So when I found about the Peanut Butter Victory at Sea by Ballast Point, I had to try it.
The aroma for me is a chocolaty sweet smell. I don't get a ton of coffee aroma from the Caffe Calabria coffee. The flavor is very rich with a lot of chocolate and vanilla up front. In the middle I pick up some coffee notes along with the peanut butter. The back end is very roasty and just a hint of bitterness from the 68 IBUs.
This 10% Imperial Porter is a great beer on a cold winters night. I enjoyed it immensely!
