COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This version is created by ageing Xyauyù in barrels of (peaty) Islay whiskey.

Editor’s note: previously there was another smoked version of Xyauyù; the X-Fumé was brewed with smoked tea (Lapsang Suchong) and no whiskey barrel; last known vintages are 2008/2009.
The new Xyauyù Fumé appeared first on draught at Open Baladin or Un Mare di Birra with specific barrel indication (Laphroaig; Caoli Ila...). The first bottles appeared in 2012, vintage 2008 (notice the overlapping of vintages with X-Fumé).

La xyauyù base riposa per un anno in botti di Laphroaig sprigionando tutto il potenziale dell’esperimento di Teo. Una nota torbata preponderante sporca il dolce del malto e della frutta matura. Al tasting è complessa e molto corposa, una birra da grandi occasioni.

Cervesa molt complexa, per beure amb molta calma ja que evoluciona en cada glop, es nota molt el toc turbat del whisky. Cerveza muy compleja, para beber con mucha calma ya que evoluciona en cada sorbo, se nota mucho el toque turbado del whisky.

Sin espuma y casi sin carbonatación, color cobrizo. En aroma y sabor, una mezcla realmente conseguida entre un oloroso envejecido y una cerveza maltosa con un toque ahumado muy bien integrado. Muchísimo cuerpo y presencia de alcohol, agradable, para la graduación que tiene. Se presta al debate de qué se puede considerar cerveza. Impresionante.

Ayy lmao, after that beer the world will be slightly different. 2011 version. Aroma: Dried fruit, barrel, light peat, slightly alcoholic. Appearance: Dark ruby body, no head. Taste: Dense, lots of dried fruit with barrel notes, wood, vanilla, peat, slight licqueur alcohol.

Se in anteprima sta già messa così, figuriamoci quando uscirà dalla botte cosa potrà essere. Lieto di esser stato uno dei privilegiati a poterla assaggiare, anche se solo due dita. Anche qui temperatura di servizio eccessivamente alta

Tap @ open baladin - Roma A really masterpiece. I hardly remember a such complex and satisfying. mouthfeel. Despite the alcohol and the smokiness it seemed to drink silk Probably it might deserve a higher score but this beer is actually a little bit far away from what i think a beer should be. a fancy and elegant low alcohol whisky. I OMG how good this was...

Koelschtrinker (20208) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 8, 2012
Süßer, unglaublich voller Beginn mit Honig- und Whiskynoten, die beide im Mittelteil noch intenisver werden. Süß bleibend, voll, rauchig, mild aber denoch voll und ausgeglichen. Dörrobst. /13/14/13//13

Una di quelle birre che lasciano il segno. Ho avuto la fortuna di assaggiarla durante un evento all’Open Baladin di Roma, è spiazzante la complessità di questo barley wine. Colore perfetto tra il rame e il rubino, consistenza oleosa, fluttua nel bicchiere come un whiskey pregiato. L’annusi, la sorseggi ti rendi conto delle potenzialità di una birra clamorosa che non teme confronti, neanche oltreoceano. Subito le note affumicate "dolci", poi frutta sotto spirito, spezie orientali, torba e ancora quel dolce che accarezza il palato nasconde l’alcool ed esalta un made in Italy da esportare con fierezza! p.s. Non chiamatelo barley wine ... si offende !!!1

Glass poured from corked bottle at home, also rated at Ma Che a few weeks previously, massive thanks to Luca (Mortlach) for gifting me this bottle! 19/02/13. Bottle No. L028/120, 2008 reserva. Almost clear chestnut brown, slight reddish hues, almost vintage port like, with no head. Nose is peat, smoke, wood, smoked gammon, brown sugars, burnt toffee, TCP, medicinal notes. Taste comprises much of the nose elements, sweet smoked sugars, big boozey hit, Seville orange, wood, smoked gammon. Full bodied, smooth, no carbonation, massages the throat leaving a sweet and smoked coating. Excellent stuff - definately the best smoked offering I’ve had, could dig this out as a night cap again and again !!!
