Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot

Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot

Trying something new with Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot. Drinking it in a wine glass. Apparently, it’s great to serve Barleywines. Even Weyerbacher recommend it for Blithering Idiot. Let’s find out.

Pours a cloudy copper. Aroma is extremely inviting with rich malt, rum raisins, and toffee. Tons going on here. Brown sugar, banana, raisins, toffee, even a hint of bubble gum. Plenty of the requisite malt, too. Amazingly, the alcohol only shows up warmth and dryness in the finish. And at a giant 11.1% ABV, that is quite a task! I see where the name came from. It is dangerously smooth, complex, and tasty. Deceptively potent. Not sure the wine glass added anything.

Grade: A
