COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Theydon_Bois (17593) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, - OCT 5, 2012
From the barrel at Open Baladin, Roma - 02/10/12. Clear chestnut brown/amber still in appearance like a fine brandy with no head. Big old whisky nose, wood and medicinal tones. Tastes of dark toffee, whisky, dates, prunes, dark fruit and wood. Smooth as in the feel, superb. Full bodied with little carbonation, as good as it gets on the palate. Overall a top draw barley wine!

500ml bottle from boxbeers,com / Vintage 2011

Mahongy colour with no head. Overdone fruits, caramel, sweeeet, rum. Good indeed but 500ml is bit too much for one person.

hackobock (3677) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2016
September 4, 2015. Bottle, vintage 2011.
Dark reddish amber with no head. Aroma is intense molasses, caramel, dark sugars, walnut, figs, prunes, rum, port, some vanilla and oak. Taste is very sweet without being cloying, very soft bitterness and some warming rum notes. Finish sweet malty notes of molasses, dates, prunes, port wine and some warming rum notes. Full bodied, thick oily texture, no carbonation.
Amazing!

BenL8 (89) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2016
Pours dark bronze with absolutely no head. Aroma is incredible and incredibly rich; plums, caramel, sticky toffee, raisins, distinctive rum notes, cherries, and a hint of booze. Thick mouthfeel, like having a dissolved sweet or molasses in your mouth. Flavour is rich, incredibly complex and very layered. There’s treacle and toffee, honey, plums, raisins, hints of vanilla even, which accompany the rich sweetness of the beer. Is similar to port/sherry and mead in its sweet flavour, but has some, though they are few, beer attributes like a somewhat earthy bitter note towards the end (almost not noticeable due to the sweetness). Finishes medium dry and a little bitter, mostly sweet. This is a very nice beer, unique and extremely tasty, to be enjoyed in small quantities. Amazing.

This beer does not really taste like a beer - it is silky smooth in taste and aroma, reminds me of mead (and honey in general) and dessert wine in that it is very sweet, very drinkable and seems light - almost no alcohol is detectable, the aftertaste is just more sweetness.
