Luke, ich bin dein Vader! Scura e minacciosa come il personaggio da cui prende il nome, questa birra esprime una tostatura molto marcata, con sfumature di caffé, e si chiude con un buon finale amaro. Il lato oscuro del Ducato è ottimo!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
6.5% ABV (according to the beer menu): draught in Open Baladin, Rome on 10th Dec 2013 during a mini-session.
Pours a really dark brown (the bar isn’t bright, so difficult to get the true colours): on top a lightly tanned foaming cover.
The nose and taste were dominated by the over roasted malts which gave an almost burnt feel to everything. Dark, dark bitter chocolate and old ground coffee mush were the two main flavours I obtained from this fairly interesting and yet almost one dimensional brew.
I liked it’s simplicity and honesty: my second ever ’Italian Craft Beer’, I am enjoying myself!
