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

Xyauyů 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.

GBBF Day 1. Bottle share organised by LKS, Cheers! Hazy amber beer, no head. Light palate, no carbonation. Light raisans with lovely mellow rum, sherry and dried fruits. Little toffee - caramel. Modest spice. Light semi dry and soft finish. Delicious! This beer is not intended to be carbonated, so taking that in to account on palate and appearance.

Leighton (20574) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle shared with the gang at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Vintage 2010. Pours clear amber with really no head. Gorgeous aroma, lots of brown sugar, dates and figs. Hugely sweet and syrupy with liquefied fruits, maple, mild woody alcohol, old berries, currants, ripe cherries. Full bodied, soft, oily and chewy. Warming finish with gooey, ripe dark fruits, more berries, caramel. Excellent stuff. Tons and tons of complexity. I love this stuff.

2013-09-21, bottle at Bistrot Baladin, Milan, vintage 2008, 8-4-9-4-16=41
Clean brown color, darker than the regular Xyauyů; Aroma of malt with a hint of spirit and raisins. Smooth mouthfeel, elegant malt flavor, with notes of tobacco, vanilla, raisins, fudge; sweet but not syrupy; low bitterness, but contrasting high alcohol perception; warm final, maybe missing a kick then.
Excellent sipper.

2012-08-20, corked bottle, courtesy of Jesper, vintage 2008, 7-4-8-4-15=38
Hazy dark amber color with a red hue; flat. Sweet and cloying aroma, some candies, some butter, light toffee. Strong body structure, it’s mainly syrupy, with some caramel and toffee flavor, a bit buttery, and with light vanilla oak; sweet, good caramel, harmonious but not deep, alcoholic but without much bitterness; and it can be cloying in the end.
