COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nasce da un “pensiero perverso” di Teo e da anni di ricerca. Una birra ad alta fermentazione che ha subito un processo di macro ossidazione e una maturazione in botti di rovere che le donano profumi di datteri, caramello e un delicato ricordo di legno. Al bicchiere si presenta priva di gasatura e schiuma con note di colore bruno con riflessi ramati

Xyauyù Barrel is the result of a “wicked idea” of Teo’s and years of research. It is a top-fermented beer which has gone through macrooxidation and has been aged in oak rum barrels to give it scents of dates, caramel and a delicate wooden note. When poured, it has no head and no gas; it has a dark color with copper nuances.

Theydon_Bois (9912) - The ’Sham, Surrey, - OCT 5, 2012
From the barrel at Open Baladin, Roma - 02/10/12. Clear chestnut brown/amber still in appearance like a fine brandy with no head. Big old whisky nose, wood and medicinal tones. Tastes of dark toffee, whisky, dates, prunes, dark fruit and wood. Smooth as in the feel, superb. Full bodied with little carbonation, as good as it gets on the palate. Overall a top draw barley wine!

jmgreenuk (4920) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2014
Poured a clear dark brown with no life. The aroma is sweet malt, boozy alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich syrupy sweet fruit malt alcoholic palate. Full bodied and some more with soft carbonation.

eduardovl (938) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2014
500ml corked bottle like the one in the picture served in a wine chalice glass. Bottled purchased in 2012 @ Baggio Bevande (Treviso). Pours a deep dark amber color with no head formed. Creamy texture. Smell is sweet and woody. Strong notes of caramel and toffee. Concentrated malt notes. Dark dry fruits: raisins and dates. Hints of rum, caramel and chocolate. Low bitterness. No carbonation. Heavy molasses body. Sweet raisins in the aftertaste. Very peculiar and unique brew. If there’s a brew to define a real "barley wine", that’s the one.

HonusWagner (1598) - Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2014
A pretty remarkable beer, extreme depth of flavor and hides it’s alcohol surprisingly well. Rich dark fruits, sherry, caramels, cocoa powder, a bit spicy like a bourbon. Really just a crazy beer, much tastier than Utopias in my opinion.

miquelcrush (1490) - Granollers, SPAIN - OCT 29, 2014
Cervesa molt complexa, en aspecte recorda un vi d’Oporto, i en gust i aroma té tocs dolços de rom i fruites assecades però també tocs a Xerès. Cerveza muy compleja, en aspecto recuerda un vino de Porto, y en sabor y aroma tiene toques dulces de ron i frutas secas pero también a Jerez.

GBBF Day 1. Bottle share organised by LKS, Cheers! Hazy amber beer, no head. Light palate, no carbonation. Light raisans with lovely mellow rum, sherry and dried fruits. Little toffee - caramel. Modest spice. Light semi dry and soft finish. Delicious! This beer is not intended to be carbonated, so taking that in to account on palate and appearance.

matis (159) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Baladin Bologna. Hazed, dark brown colour. Rum, cognac, dry cocoa, cherry and dried black fruits in aroma. Toffee, cristal deep burned caramel, dark chocolate, cherry chocolates again. Full and oily body, sweet with just hints of barrel sourness. Much better than the basic one.
