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

Idiot’s 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… Admittedly, I don’t know what this beer is all about. Haven’t read anything about it – including the label. Haven’t even heard of it. This happens at tastings at dimly-lit beer bars. Hazy burnt-caramel ale with a red glimmer and negligible head. To me, this smells like a strong, American-style barleywine aged in a red wine barrel. Acidic, tannic notes. Medium to full-bodied and a bit chewy with almost no carbonation. The flavor is a mishmash of elements both sweet and sour – caramel and sour cherries mostly. Tart, Mojave-dry finish. I like this. Seems like I’m the only one at the table who does. OK, finally looking at all the ratings. I guess Dan and I are the only two people on the planet that like this beer. Well, so be it. Different strokes and all that.

Old oxidized nose, with sherry notes, oaky, caramelized, dark figgy fruit. Picking up just a little barrel funk.

Pours brown and actually smells quite well. Very maple syrup flavor with a Brrrr sour hint... Not good.

(750ml bottle) very hazy medium brown, few bubbles in a ring around the edge. Nose of rich caramel, honey, light brown sugar, rich and malty. Taste of vinegar, brown sugar, malty, rich, and very lightly tart in a good way. A bit undercarbonated, super interesting beer.

Bottle into a snifter. Pours a flat murky mahogany. No head. Nose is pineapple, booze, sour, salty. Flavor is a mess. Pinapple mixed with sauerkraut and cheap booze. Flat, medium bodied. I wish that there was no Brett in this one. Very bad (but still better than billy the mountain).

Säuerlicher Beginn mit deutlichen Eichennoten. Trockene Malznoten, die Säuerlichkeit wird milder, gleichzeitig aber schärfer. Interessant, süffig, ausgewogen, vollmundig. Gut! 8/12/12/12/9/12

Thanks to yourefragile for sharing this at last night’s tasting. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Pours nearly flat. Reddish-brown color and a few bubbles after some heavy swirling. The nose is pretty bad, smelling like dirty socks with a bit of vinegar. White-Birch level right here. Very unfortunately. The flavor has light cherry and some vinegar-like sourness. Touch of oak. Medium flat body. Not a fan at all. Not good.

Bottle thanks to GRG1313. Pours with a hazed brown body with a fading tan head. Aromas are buttery, cheese, caramelization, oak, dark currants, wood and a bit sour. Strange. Flavors are of brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, oak and a ton of alcohol. Very low carbonation. Lasting maple and vinous notes. Some acetone. Flavors do not meld well.
