This beer is very good! This to me easily smokes DFH Old School. Pours a decent sized head, has good aroma and very good taste. I am surprised this is not rated even higher then it is. Good barley wine aged in oak barrels. Blithering idiot with a twist. If you like the idiot you will love this. A little boozy but nothing crazy, I would buy this again.

Bottom Like: Good beer for the style.
