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.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a reddish color with a tan head. The aroma ha a ton of brown sugar and cherry notes, as well as a good dose of vinegar. The flavor is very similar. There is a lot of acidic vinegar, as well as some toffee and sweetness from the brown sugar. I also get a little bit of cherry, plum and other dark fruit notes. There are also hints of sherry and leather in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

I am a sucker for old ales and honestly I enjoyed this so F the score and I havenít read any other reviews. Body has a lather thickness with some raison notes up front with dark fruits, sweet malt content etc. the carbonation seems nonexistent for this. I did enjoy the oak tones I detected. Aroma could use a bit more but what should I expect from a barrel aged beer?

(trade w/LIVEFAST) 750ml bottle - Poured pretty much flat. Zero head. Body is absolutely murky brown. Aroma of boiled raisins. Flavors interesting. Muted tones from the Brett. Detect notes of boiled raisins and old leather. Sides of glass are coated with a bit of sediment as the beer level goes down. Reminds me of a murky dry sherry or oxidized port wine. Hard to believe this is 12% alcohol. Wish it wasnít so sludgy, and there were some bubbles in there.
