The Commodore by Ballast Point is a 6.5% ABV American Dry Stout.

COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION:
American Stout. Black in color with roasted flavor and noticeable hop bitterness.

==Introduction==

It has been a long time since tried a beer from Ballast Point and brought it to the site. Aside from their main Imperial Stout and Vanilla Coffee Porter, there really hasnโ€™t been a regular stout from them before or at least that I can remember in bottle form. So after picking this one up, I wanted to bring this for a rolling review and see who good the brew is. This is a common beer and you may find it at local shops where they sell Ballast Point or even online. Cheers!

Aromas:
Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, earthy hops, caramel, toffee, vanilla, molasses, dark fruit cherry, anise and brown sugar.

Flavors:
Coffee, Dark chocolate, earthy hop notes, brown sugar, caramel, toffee, roasted malts, vanilla, molasses, anise hints, dark fruit cherry, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal hints and marshmallow hints.

Aftertaste:
Finishing dry with some roasty malt hints, earthy hops, chocolate, vanilla and caramel. No alcohol in the taste, super dark full body, creamy, smooth and dry mouthfeel with an easy to moderate drinkability.

Overall:
A pretty good and decent stout. It is not too complex but just right. Maybe enough for those that may not like stouts to give this one a try. I for one think it is something you would choose if there really is nothing else around that is craft related.

Anime Corner:
Original Pirate girl by Einlee of deviantart.com was used to represent the pirate captain in the label I tried to get it as close as the label too with the colors which you can also say compliment the artwork and the flavors a like.
