COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From notes. Enjoyed at a tasting with ebone1988 and Gus on December 10. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a darker brown, almost muddy looking thing and it’s completely still. This is pretty interesting; a still barley wine. The aroma is full of oak and a dry barrel integration with a lot of grape must. There is a bit of alcohol with a light graininess on the back end. It’s rather basic, but not dreadful. The flavor is much of the same. The grape must is huge. There is a bit of a port and moscato thing happening on the oak and the barrels add a layer of dryness underneath it. The mouth feel is slimy and slick with no carbonation and a strange coating to the mouth. The aftertaste is full of the grape must and a light winey barrel. This is an interesting mess through and through. Hmm. 6 3 7 3 12

deyholla (12660) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma has a lot of earthy grains and toffee with some booze underlying. Flavor is similar with lots of toffee and sweet grains with a bit of caramel and booze supporting.

vincentvega72 (958) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2017
Robijnrood bier. Bijna geen schuimkraag (flinterdun en parelend). Aroma en smaken van pruimen, dadels, sherry, donker fruit, rozijntjes. Zoetig bier, licht plakkerig. Warme afdronk. Beetje weeëig. Goeie barley wine maar mist balans om echt top te zijn...

Fules (1465) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - DEC 23, 2016
Semmi hab, barna szín. Csokilikőrös, aszalt gyümölcsös illat, pici kávés beütéssel. Édes csokoládéval indít, amihez aszalt szilva csatlakozik, majd a csúcson likőrös és enyhe kávés aromák társulnak, majd hosszú, konyakos-csokoládés, aszalt gyümölcsös lecsengéssel fut ki. Testes, enyhén kesernyés és enyhén szénsavas. Isteni desszertsör.

Аромат интерес& вкус не сладкий ни и не америка& барлика, но очень грязно, дрожжей много.
