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.

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!

The aroma is full of chocolate, rum, raosted coffee, caramel, vanilla, oak tree, prunes. The taste is complex with notes of chocolate, liqour, rum coffee and prunes. It has a long finish which new elements appear all the time. Elements such as apple wine appear. It also has a slight of smoke among all other good stuff. It reminds me of mead. Very sweet, just like honey.
