I am slowly beginning to enjoy barleywine Ales. I have to say this wasnt one of the winners.
It had that fairly deep brownish amber hue to it with a nice frothy white head. The aroma was typical of most barleywines.
There was just something from the initial taste through the ending that just didnt sit right with me in aroma as well as taste

Old 12 oz bottle that's been sitting in the cellar for about 5 years or more.

Seved slightly chilled into a goblet, Blithering Idiot is a hazy amber brown color. It has some yeast floating in suspension. No head.

Aroma is sweet and slightly boozy but it seems to have mellowed with age.

Flavor has too but it still has some kick. Malty and sweet but fairly well balanced with the ample hops. Alcohol is really well hidden after aging.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and low in carbonation. A little oxidized but not bad.

Overall a pretty good barley wine but not exceptional.
