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 Javitís Birthday Tasting. Thanks Adam... er... kinda... Pours flat cloudy brown, no head, no lacing. Nose is brown sugar, raisin, alcohol. Flavours of creamed feces, corn, quite sour, horribly off-balance. Just barely qualifies for my "Still better than Molson Canadian Pity Point", but Jesus, just barely. This is truly vile stuff.

LtDan (1740) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with only a stripe of head.

Aroma: Rotten fruit and pineapple brett.

Taste. Pineapple brett. Swimming pool water, brown sugar. Tart finish.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied , flat.

Overall: This beer is a mess. I know people either love it or hate it, with no room in the middle.

Murky brown in color with an off-white colored head. Strong malt, woody-boozy, with funk aroma. Fantasitc complexity; wood-vanilla notes, malt strenght and slight funk highlights. My favorite at the Rare beer tasting í11.

Denver Rare Beer Tasting. Cloudy orange brown appearance with a small cream colored head. Potent oaky, rich malty, caramel, toffee, boozy aroma. Very, very strong taste, slightly tart, super rich caramel, toffee malty flavor. This is rich and boozy as hell.

EBF Session 2 HAzy amber pour with little head. Aroma is vanilla, some light oak and some wierd yeastiness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, Overly boozy , some light funk but it gets swallowed a little by the booze, some vanilla, seems a little disjointed, doesnt really work for me

Draft at EBF. Pours a deep amber body with a yellow off white head. Bourbon and oak sweetness and a modest warming. A mild bretty orange rind citrus character with a salty finish. Brett is very light with more maple and citrus sweetness. Okay.
