No head, clear cognac colour. Whisky nose, whisky malt, distilled if anything. Raisins, sweet, brandy, sultana’s, smoked malt in the finish. Syrupy, oily MF, alcoholwarming; A bit too sticky. That was to say something negative. OTOH, it is a rich, powerful brew. And it costs the earth, but I still recommend it. yespr (47067) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2010

Cloudy brown beer. Few whit bubbles forma semblance of a head. Fairly light palate. Zero carbonation. Chocolate malt nose with a little sherry. Mild chocolatey malt, sherry and a little floral sweetness. Whisper of peach. Finishes neutral. Hides the alcohol very well. Complex unique beer.

Pours dark brown with a tiny head. Aroma of sweet malts, ripe fruits, raisins, hints of wood, oak and sweet syrup. Taste is sweet, smooth and malty with loads of toffee, wood, vanilla, raisins and ripe fruits. Finish is sweet, smooth and complex with hints of raisins, vanilla and wood. Quite complex and well balanced barley wine.
Bottle (thanks fonefan!). Amber/copper colour, not much head. Aroma is mild sour wood, sweet alcohol, fruits, wooden and fruity notes along with some raisins. Flavour is raisins, plum, sweet alcohol, a bit boozy along with some wooden and fruity notes. Balanced and somewhat balanced. Quite much vanilla in the finish.

Light brownish amber with no head, just some legs. Aroma caramell and brown sugar, sherry, raisins, dried fruit and some acetone. Flavor is the same, sticky sweet and suprisingly muted. Unlike the other versions of the "Xyauyù" this even less aged one doesn’t quite blow any minds, the flavor is simply too muted and you have to wash the beer around in your mouth like a maniac trying to get the flavors out. Still, the muted flavors it holds is rather nice, sweet with a nice warming ending. Flat slightly stiicky body as expected. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 25, 2010

Bottle 375ml. @ [ Craig and Fin Sneak up in the middle of the NIGHT and drink all fonefans beer ].
Clear medium brown colour with virtually no head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, whisky, date, vanilla, alcohol. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long long duration, wood, dried fruit, oak - dry oak, alcohol, date. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat, finish feel is light alcoholic. 
Very slightly hazy deep amber, no head just a few bubbles.
The aroma is vinous and fruity with notes of wood, prunes and malts. A faint oxidized character and hidden alcohol. Nice.
The flavor is seriously sweet, and the sweetness is accentuated by the completely flat mouthfeel. The body is not overly full, but decent and the texture is very sticky. Lots of sweet fruits, brown sugar, powdered chocolate and hints of spices. The finish has a slight alcohol twang to it, chewy malts and vinous cherry notes.
A good beer, but not fantastic. Very heavy and too much emphasis on the sweetness.
