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.

Dedollewaitor (14160) - Odense, - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle @ Odense Tasting, Oktober 2012. Pours ruby amber with a bubbly head. Nose is dried fruit, alcohol and mild spices. Soft with a low carbonation. Warming alcohol. It’s tasty but perhaps it lacks a bit in complexity. Sticky and oily.

Theydon_Bois (10378) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle at BBF 6, 26/09/14. Mahogany brown with a decent beige covering that clears to edgework. Nose carries a woody rinse, caramel, dark berry notes, vanilla. Taste comprises rich dark fruits, spice, bitter notes, light balsam, boozey tones, toffee. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent offering, quite tarte in places for a barley wine but never gets sweet and cloying as some do.

Draft @ Borefts 2014. Strong grainy taste of malt, with some nice sweet fruits like raisin and grape. Quite a rich and long taste, tasty barley wine.

ShivanDragon (1862) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2014
@Borefts 2014, helder robijnrood met fijne kaki kraag. aroma is enorm (honing) zoetig en redelijk wat graan. Smaken: honing zoet, redelijk granig maar niet in een vervelende manier waarop Barley Wines wel eens willen zijn. licht bitter, kruidig, en een iets pittig karakter. Afdronk is honingzoetig, redelijke body, lage co2, mooie honing die vrij lang blijft hangen..
