COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pours with abundant curtaining that settles into an opaque onyx color with red highlights and a thick beige head from the nitro treatment. Subtle aromas of a freshly made cappuccino, milk chocolate and roasted raw barley. Chocolate Malts and 20% Flaked Barley help build the cookie dough flavors and the velvety, silky smooth mouth feel. Medium body is balanced by one mid-boil addition of UK Fuggle Hops. This allows a smooth bitterness and more hop flavor to make its way into this Oatmeal Stout. Some earthy lavender flavors also are derived from the UK Fuggle hops and add to the slight hoppy aftertaste in this very drinkable ale. Our nitro treatment comes from using both carbon dioxide and nitrogen being dissolved into the beer. This creates tiny bubbles and a creamy texture when the beer is heavily agitated while being poured from a nitro tap.

Really smooth and creamy. Pours black with a thin tan head on nitro. Slight oatmeal aroma. Flavor is pretty dry. A little sweet, a little oatmeal like, but pretty subdued. A but watery, even. Feels like its missing a middle component. Nice easy drinker, but feels like its missing something.

Pours a deep brownish black on nitro tap wroth creamy tan brown head that leaves great lace. Aroma of big dark chocolate roast with hint of soy and oatmeal. Taste is all of that with the earth dropped off and bigger chocolate. Creamy smooth mouth from both the oatmeal and the nitro, very nice.

Sextant is a tasty nod to the English Oatmeal Stout. It pours black, opaque and has a pretty layer of foam. Grainy and slightly creamy aroma. Theres an interesting transition that occurs within the flavor profile. Things start off with sweetened coffee and bakers chocolate then turns into a more bitter representation of those things: dark chocolate and espresso. The last part is even more bitter yet thanks to the finishing Fuggles hops. While the nitro process Ballast Point uses for this brew is unique, it comes up just shy of creating a full-bodied Stout. Still, its hard not to love the complexity.

In tap at the Brewers Fork. Supposedly nitro. Dark brown pour with a mocha head. Thinnamd watery. That being said the mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. A bit bland with no real distinctive flavors. I guess there are some hints of roasted malts. Below average body and mouthfeel.
