courtesy of fiulijn; 2006 vintage - clear amber-brown colour with absolutely no foam; aroma of walnut, whisky and smoked sausage, a fair but well-integrated smokiness; very oily and full-bodied, notes of Madeira and honey, Portwine-like finish with more honey and smoke - a wonderful, complex beer!

The Xyauyù Ultimate Tasting
Beautiful red and dark amber color, clear, shiny; flat. Delicate smoke aroma, it reminds me more a delicate smoked meat of the Schwarzwald than the Lapsang Suchong; it blends well with the malt, caramel and toffee aroma; due to the oxidisation, there is an impression of Madeira; also some chestnuts. It flows like a velvety ambrosia, sweet and delicate, yet powerful; rich sweetness, the malt melts into caramel; the smoke is very delicate, but clearly present; there are traces of chestnut honey and mature fruits; the 14% of alcohol is just a concept. Smooth. Sublime liquid for the gods.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to Nate at the Imperial Geezer tasting, Borough Market. Smoked cheese on the aroma, like Bavarian smoked cheese. Clear red amber colour. Alcohol and sweetness on the swallow. So smooth, so gorgeous. Jest amazingly smooth. Smokey bacon/cheese with toffee. Smooth as the smoothest thing ever. The closest thing I could think of was a Rutherglen Muscat. How do I get hold of this??

Entered as my rating 2700. Thanks Pinball for sharing. It pours hazzy reddish brown with a small off white head. The aroma is light smokey with lots of dark fruit and caramel. The flavour is lots of sweet malt, smoke, dark fruit, barley and caramel. Smooth and complex. Lovely.

clear brown, small smooth film head.
aroma of sweet barley wine, smoked something, roasted something.
flavor is very sweet, malty, honey, smoked notes, flavor is almost between mead and barley wine... and then smoked.. pretty strange.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a clear reddish amber with an off-white Intensely fat bacon aroma. Solid body, hardly any carbonation. Very sweet, caramel and Sherry accents. Again fat bacon smoke. Well, to be honest I’m not quite sure how well fat Bamberg smoke goes with a sweet and caramellish Barley Wine. But an interesting experiment indeed. 280710
