COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blithering Idiot Barleywine aged 4.5yrs on American oak, refermented w/ Brett.

Idiotís drool is Blithering Idiot barrel aged for 4.5 years. A full-bodied, deep burgundy ale with an incredibly complex character. Extended aging has imbued this beer with notes of vanilla, oak, leather and sweet sherry. A mild acidity and subtle carbonation rounds out the palate. 840 bottle brewery only release.

Bottle at RBWG í15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15. Light murk on a chestnut/amber hue topped with a moderate off white cap. Nose is ladys knickers, nutty, soured fruit, must. Taste comprises big sherrified wood licks, toffee, earthy, spice. Full bodied, viscous feel, light warming booze. Hmmm...not a great.

Bottle at RBWG. Pours amber with a thin white head. Nose was overripe fruit, some toffee, some booze, some leather, and some rotten fruit. Flavor was similar- funky, some booze, some toffee, some leather, and some definite overripe fruit. I am not sure about this one; lingering leather and old fruit into the finish.

Ibrew2or3 (7362) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 5, 2015
rbwg2015. 750mL bottle, courtesy of Markwise, pours with a clear amber body that supports . . . well, really no head at all. The aroma offers up sweet malts and molasses and then soured lime, moldy lime, plastic toilet and then sun dried dates. The taste delivers thin yet slick malts, molasses, a pleasing toffee note and then apple, tannin tartness and then another dash of lime. Very interesting brew.

Leighton (13520) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2015
Bottle shared during the Grand Tasting of RBWG 2015. Pours clear chestnut with a foamy head. Pretty hearty, with lots of tangy and ripe fruits, berries, caramel. Medium sweet flavor, pretty oily and tangy. Lots of oxidation present in the finish with old fruits, berries in particular, some uninspiring caramel. Must be pretty old. Interesting, but thatís about it.

OK, just not right.

chinchill (2763) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Hazy reddish-brown with a weak head. Strong unattractive aroma much like a few other old ales, if a bit stronger. Very low carbonation. Medium-full body. O: recommended only for fans of the style.

Poured a brownish color with aromas of bread and caramel malt. Flavors matched the aromas with a light chemical flavor unfortunately itís not the worst out there but this isnít middle of the road either.
