Ballast Point Sextant StoutFrom Ballast Point – A dry stout with fresh brewed Cafe Calabria coffee. The flaked barley and oats serve to round out the body a little without the malty sweetness. Calabria is an independant coffee importer and roaster located on 30th st. in the North Park area of San Diego.

Ballast Point Brewing – Ballast Point Sextant Coffee Oatmeal Stout – On nitro at the brewery – 6.8% abv.

Appearance: Pours a midnight brown with a thin layer of white film.

Aroma: Chocolate roast, prepared coffee.

Taste: Dark roast, slight tartness, black coffee.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with creamy low carbonation. (Nitro)

Overall:  This is a solid stout, I like it better carbonated than on nitro. Also look for the barrel aged version, that is spectacular.
