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.

Leighton (15280) - 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 that’s about it.

Bottle at RBWG ’15 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.

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

The pour is a murky mahogany color with sort of a small off-white head. Wow, what an aroma. Cheese, vinegar, and soy sauce are among the strongest aromas. A bit of liquor and booze, maybe some oak, definitely some oxidation and leather. The flavor is just bad. Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, bad chocolate, and vinegar. Definitely salty with some almost cauliflower taste. God, what is this? Medium bodied with low carbonation.

Brown pour. Not much of a head. Sour maple aroma, rotten fruit, dumpster aromas. Flavor is rotten garbage, sour cabbage, yuck.

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.
