Ballast Level lately launched the provision of one in every of its flagship beers in 16 oz cans — Victory at Sea Imperial Porter, which was first brewed in 2007. (Ballast Level is within the means of shifting its whole portfolio from glass to cans at current.)

Brewed with espresso and vanilla, it’s a powerhouse at 10% abv. The beer kicks off with that fizzy, considerably winey factor that makes porter porter, a word of currants muscling an in any other case hefty malty haze. The espresso factor kicks in shortly after, nevertheless it pairs fitfully with the brew’s aggressively bitter underbelly. The unmistakable end of unsweetened espresso grounds provides the again finish a a lot more durable, grittier character than anticipated. I hoped to seek out in Victory at Sea a beer that may work nicely as an after-dinner providing, however ended up with a extra conventional expertise than lands someplace, and indistinctly, between porter and stout, in search of a house.

10% abv.
