An American Stout at Beer League
This week we're having Ballast Point Brewing's The Commodore, which they call:
The Commodore came out of our search for a medium-bodied American Stout. The recipe began at our R&D pilot brewery, but quickly became a favorite of our crew. Strong flavors of roast coffee and bittersweet chocolate balance with light citrusy hop aromas, highlighted by a crisp, bitter finish. One sip of this gold medal-winning stout will have you ready to take command of your own fleet.
We'll take a look at some reviews of The Commodore as well and get an idea about the kinda beer we'll be drinking this Thursday.
Had a pint at the brewpub in Little Italy with a late lunch today for $5.00.
Beer was served black as night with a nice tan head.
Nose had some nice roastiness with a hint of dark chocolate and coffee.
Taste was medium roasted malts with a touch of cocoa and coffee. Hopping was adequate enough to balance things out nicely.
Mouthfeel was medium bodied and pretty smooth.
Overall a solid offering that i would have again.
12 ounce bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Looks like a stout. This is full of roastiness. Chocolate, too. It is pretty much a classic stout but has bigger roast than most. Some vanilla and plenty of earth. Bitterness is very moderate but grows and there is a hint of spice. That chocolate is dark bakers variety. This is good stuff.
Beer League - It's What's for Dinner
We'll see you this Thursday and every Thursday for Beer League at The Waiting Room!
We send out the beer every week in an email as well - some people like that more than having to go through the website or checking our facebook. So join up!
