COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This version is created by ageing Xyauyù in barrels of (peaty) Islay whiskey.

Editor’s note: previously there was another smoked version of Xyauyù; the X-Fumé was brewed with smoked tea (Lapsang Suchong) and no whiskey barrel; last known vintages are 2008/2009.
The new Xyauyù Fumé appeared first on draught at Open Baladin or Un Mare di Birra with specific barrel indication (Laphroaig; Caoli Ila...). The first bottles appeared in 2012, vintage 2008 (notice the overlapping of vintages with X-Fumé).

Lilja (1585) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2014
Med ölföreningen julen 2013. Smak och doft av korv, torv, järnvägsslipers, medvurst, russin, dadlar, honung med rökiga och torviga toner. En aning för söt men riktigt gott. En flaska från 2010.

kaser (2639) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Smokey as hell. Deep forest fire smoke. Smells like a good port wine. Heavy. Thick. Draft at Eataly. My friends are ready to throw up after this and I like it

Beergeek23322 (2229) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2014
2/1/2014. From bottle. Poured dark brown with no head. Syrupy sweet aromas with smoke. Peaty and smoky flavors, with sweetness from the oak. No carbonation at all. It’s definitely a different style of beer, and if you don’t appreciate Islay whisky, you may be in for a surprise. Not sure it’s worth the price point though.

Brouwerij (920) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear red brown with no head or lace. Aroma is dark fruit, plum, strong oaky, whisky, mildly peated and smoked. Flavor is sweet and fruity up front, fig and plum, fading smoothly into peaty, strong whisky, smoky, bacon/jerky finish, mildly vinous. Even better, more complex as it warms. Alcohol is well hidden. Rich, sweet, fruity, more smoke and whisky as it warms up. Essentially no carbonation, medium body, and mildly juicy texture. Interesting, sweet, fruity, oaky barley wine. Very good.

DarkSideOfBeer (45) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 8, 2014
Bomba a mano, sembra di bere un whiskey invecchiato senza percepire i gradi alcolici, bevendola richiama un torbato incredibile che si bilancia con uno speziato persistente al naso e al palato, non vorresti smettere di sorseggiarla,caretta di solito ma se li merita tutti

Staffan47 (862) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2014
Flaska (2010) på nyårsafton. Doft av alkohol, aceton och köttkorv. Hög sötma och smak av hästkorv och andra svagt rökta charkuterier. Tung alkohol men i balans. Fatkaraktär av oklar genes, bara att läsa på etiketten för den som pallar.
