Blackballed Stout


OGV Taproom are delighted to introduce a brand-new beer ‘Blackballed’. This beer becomes the first stout that we have ever produced and as we continue to be ‘be bold’ and ‘be adventurous’ we have created this very different but very tasty beer.

A stout is a dark, top-fermented beer. The original meaning of a stout beer that people will see it as is as a strong beer, rather than a dark beer. However, our brand-new beer ‘Blackballed’ is both a strong and dark beer – with a black colour and a ABV of 5.1%.

The name of the beer comes from a well-known term in the oil and gas industry - ‘Blackballed’. In working life this term is something that no one wants to hear as it means that an employee is no longer required back, but ‘Blackballed’ is nothing but positive when it comes to our lovely beer.

If you like chocolate and you like beer, then this is the perfect stout for you! It has a rich roasted barley and coffee taste with a chocolate roasted malt aroma and a smooth with the bitterness of dark chocolate finish.

The beer is described as ‘Dark, rich and smooth with large notes of chocolate’ as it brings a lovely and velvety drinking experience. We recommend that it can be enjoyed best when it is served cool, but not too cold.

As well as our beer being available to buy from the OGV website it is also available to buy from select retailers from around the Aberdeen area – Grape and Grain, Hop Shop Aberdeen, Dunavon House Hotel, Formartine’s and the Inverurie Whisky Shop.

As we approach the month of December, we will be coming up to both Christmas time and also New Year, despite it being more difficult to celebrate than most years there is always an opportunity to enjoy a great beer and why look any further than OGV Taproom! There is a great variety of different beers, all very different and all very tasty, with ‘Blackballed’ being the latest for you to try,

This brand-new stout beer is another showing that backs our slogan - ‘Be bold. Be adventurous.’ as we worked hard to create another innovative and great tasting beer which sees ‘Blackballed’ joining our special catalogue of beers.
