DUDES: si può leggere in italiano tal quale e signifca in dialetto locale DODICI….oppure all’inglese RAGAZZACCI…… è un Barley Wine Classico di ispirazione britannica (i suoi ispiratori sono BASS N.1 e Thomas Hardy’s). Maturato in bottiglia per un minimo di 9 mesi prima di essere messo in commercio. Si tratta di una birra di 12 gradi alcolici di colore ambrato carico. Caratterizzato da una buona secchezza e beverinità nonostante i 12 gradi alcolici. Birra da meditazione calda e raffianata,ottima in abbinamento a formaggi erborinati importanti (Stilton, Rochefort, Gorgonzola stagionati….). Note aromatiche prevalenti sono: datteri, frutta secca, rabarbaro candito, salsa di soia…. E’ il capostipite e la base di tutta la linea Barley Wines di Toccalmatto.

Alengrin (3670) - BELGIUM - MAR 12, 2015
At ACBF. Another of those extremely wine-like Italian new generation barley wines, clear bronze colour, almost no head. Perfumey, vinous, sweet aroma, raisins, toffee, honey, brown sugar, port wine, banana; honeyish and candied sweet taste, very vinous and port-like, oily mouthfeel, low carbo, long vinous finish with lingering candied sweetness and drying, warming alcohol, hint of herbal hops for bittering balance. Enjoyable sipper, could be a good introduction to the beer world for wine people...
