BlackHaddock (7747) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2017
From my BA backlog. 0.75 cl Bottle: shared at the 2014 Pre Brugge beer exchanged organised by Filip of the Belgian Beer Board website. Thank you whoever brought this beauty to the table.

Black body with a good tanned crown on top.

Malty with coffee and dark chocolate notes in the aroma, these carried on into the taste also.

This is a good solid Stout, hints of liquorice came and went with dark chocolate being the dominant flavour in my opinion.

I am warming to Italian beers, my visit to Rome in Dec 2013 helped and the beers I tried during this bottle swap were all interesting and of a good quality.

Boutip (6562) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle: Poured a dark black color stout with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of roasted malt with light dry bitter notes. Taste is dominated by roasted malt with some dry bitter malt notes with dry coffee notes and light black chocolates. Body is about average for style with a bit too strong carbonation for the style. OK but not something I would seek to try again.

Idiosynkrasie (8050) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2012
330ml bottle [’Birrificio del Ducato Oatmeal Stout’, 4.5% abv]. Clear, red glowing darkest brown colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, tan head. Grainy, minimally spicy, dark malty aroma, a touch of salt. Taste is initially dry to bitter dark malty, roast, ashes, later with a sourish touch. Light body.

TBone (18385) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2012
Bottled 330ml "Birrificio del Ducato Oatmeal Stout" (Bierkompass, ABV 4.5 %, BB 04/2013)

Dark ruby color, big but quickly collapsing beige cloudy head, lace. Ashy and toasted aroma. Vegetables lurking in the background. Light bodied. Lots of cold coffee and some ash in the toasted malty llavour. Light stout. Decent flavor, maybe a bit too ashy/burned and dry for my liking.

olio (10595) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2012
33 cl bottle as "Birrificio del Ducato Oatmeal Stout", 4,5% abv. BBE 04/2013.

Pours dark brown color with a small off-white head on the sides. Aroma of mild milk chocolate, oat, orange, faint vanilla, some nice coffee notes and ash. Flavor of coffee, fruits, some dry dark chocolate, ash, faint vanilla notes, cocoa powder and toasted malts. Low carbonation, dry and slightly bitter palate with a dry finish. A bit too watery palate and somewhat too fruity, the coffee notes stand out quite nicely though. A positive surprise.


Oakes (19013) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
Light brown. No head. Light roast aroma. The palate is light roasty and gentle acidity, pretty much like cheap hotel coffee.
