Victory at Sea - Imperial Porter (with coffee & vanilla) - Ballast Point Brewery - 10 % ABV

Aroma is coffee and chocolate, medium body and head that dissipates pretty quickly. The mouthfeel is pretty rich. The taste has a huge roasted quality up front and a nice coffee and vanilla profile but not over the top. There is an earthy/leathery taste and the level of sweetness is right on. If you told me this was a stout I wouldn't question it. I really enjoyed this beer, there are a lot of nice flavors going on here. This is one unique and bold beer. I am looking forward to next years batch. Rating of 8.5 out of 10

Mr. Beer Jangle

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.
