A: Dark brown color, with a slight tinge of red. Decent amount of carbonation with a negligible head. Only slight lacing
S: Smells alcoholic first, then wafts of dark fruits like cherry, dates and fig come through. Very faint smell of roasted winter nuts, like chestnuts
T: Tastes alcoholic, but not as much as you would think an English Barleywine would or what the smell gives off. Tastes like what it smells, with a somewhat faint taste of dark stone fruit
M: Since it didn't taste as alcoholic as it could, it came off quite crisp. Lack of carbonation give it a weird consistency, but barleywines are not supposed to have effervescent bite
O: Better beer than what previous rankings give it credit for. If you wanted a barleywine than I would recommend Third Coast Old Ale by Bell's Brewery, which is great. Even though it is an American barleywine and Blithering Idiot is English, I think the styles are similar enough. Worth trying, especially if you are interested in this kind of brew
