Barley Tùvi Tùvi
Huge, dense & fine lightly yellowish head, leaving textbook lace over very faintly veiled yellow-golden beer. Initially sourish, lactic nose, hints at citrussy hops, more and more bitter herbs. Quite bitter-hoppy, some malt underneath without real sweetness. Hops are more raw, not citrussy in the mouth. Hopoils attain astringency. Quite slick; medium bodied; well-carbonated. Bittering EU hops for a golden ale. Because of the astringency of the bittering hosp, drinkability is not its main forte.

Barley BB9 (Malvasia)
September 2016 - Bottle share at Leighton’s, with many thanks to Kenny. As ’Barley BB9 Birra’, 9.0%, BB Feb 2019. Hazy orange, still, foamy off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is apple and varnish, booze. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is light malt, biscuity, touches of lemon, some drying booze. Quite thin and doesn’t deliver too much at the ABV. Just OK. (2.9)

Barley BB Boom
Bottle from Scurreria Beer & Bagel and thoroughly enjoyed at Spianata Castelletto whilst watching the sun go down over Genoa. Beer pours a hazy amber colour with a small but lasting off white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, fruit, vanilla and lightly herbal. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, and a touch of sour. Medium to full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Finish is somewhat dry, with some bitterness and a sour edge. Maybe not a fruit beer? But thought it a very good beer!

Far too sweet and sticky for the likes of me. Fair.

75cl bottle @ Finissons ces pétroles tasting, merci Vincent. Cuivre, col fin beige. Arôme au nez malté, grillé, biscuité avec un rétro fruité noir, certainement le raisin pressé, je note aussi une petite touche de noisette. Palais est malté, grillé, caramel, biscuité, fruits noirs tirant vers la figue et date et prune, en fin de bouche je trouve également un léger ajout de fraise. Le profil de raisin arrive en rétro et contraste avec le côté malté.

Barley BB10° (Dexi)
Pours almost black with a nice cappuccino coloured frothy head. Aroma is very complex and intriguing, quite roasty but I can definitely also taste the grapes! They give a fruity feel to the stouty aroma. Maybe even some hints of chocolate. Quite thick mouthfeel. Flavour is also very complex, quite roasty, but smooth. It is vinous, quite earthy, prune and especially cherry notes, really feels like a mix of an imperial stout and a good red wine. Finish is smooth and herbal sweet, has something of a red wine finish but also bitter. Doesn’t linger as long as most impys though. Brilliant beer and really exciting to try a grape ale.

Noticeable grape notes and fruit flavor. Reminds me of good classic imperial stouts, but seems lighter and more fruity. Appearance is great: dark brown with almost white foam. It has a nice grape aftertaste which lingers for some time.

Bottle @ LIBF’16. 75cl bottle courtesy of Valerio @ La Tana. Dorée sur un léger trouble, col fin blanc. Arôme au nez fruité, léger citronné avec un retro de ’mosto’ de raisin blanc, petit côté s’apparentant à la pomme, grains léger en retrait. Palais est léger, malté pils-cara. Le tout offre une certaine fraicheur forte plaisante de raisin avec un léger fini acerbe peut-être des tanins?

Fruit beer? Right! I’m a monkeys uncle then! Almost clear amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and dry. Decent fine carbonation. Thin malts, a little dry creamy sweetness. Dry spice. Trace of citrus peel. Dry finish. Dry, spicy and hardly any fruit. Clunky!

Barley BB10° (Dexi)
Bière chaleureuse douce-amère. Les arômes de cacao et de café se mêlent aux arômes de résinée, raisins secs et de mélasse. L’alcool est bien (trop) prononcé au nez et en bouche. Un peu écœurante.

Barley BB10° (Dexi)
Aroma di malti tostati, ma più complessa; colore scuro, lucido, riflessi color prugna fino al rubino. Apre come una stout, ma poi c’è il dolce di una freschezza totale, che non può diventare stucchevole. Il palato rimane con decise note tostate ma ammorbidite da un fruttato fresco, intenso e persistente dato dall’uva. Gran birra, ben bilanciata nasconde bene l’alcolicità dei 10abv, l’unicità complessiva la rende un’esperienza da fare.

Barley BB Boom
Bottiglia riserva 2014 @ Simei 2015, Milano. L’intensità olfattiva è flebile e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine fini ha una discreta resistenza con finale di merletti e pizzo sul vetro. Al piano di sotto la frizzantezza è data da bollicine fini a bassa carbonazione con frizzante medio. Il colore è ambrato carico. Il corpo è strutturato non pesante ma duttile e presenta nuove sfaccettature. L’amaro è carico. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è godereccio e voluttuoso. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate per una birra assolutamente da bere essendo ottima. Il finale è amarognolo, secco, pulito e complesso. Il sentori rimandano a cereali, frutta secca, pane tostato e cuoio.

Bottle from gbbf 2015 and drunk at home. Hazy orange gold lasting beige head. Fruity aroma no doubt. Some sweetness in the malts. Dryish finish though. Grapey aroma and flavour. Tastes a little like a Belgian strong ale. Hides abv well and the malt is a little biscuit. I enjoyed it. The biscuit and malts were good as was the fruit. Alcohol sidled up to me.
