COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Insanity, first released November 2004, is Weyerbacher's latest creation in the world of cutting edge beers. Insanity is made by aging our perfectly balanced Blithering Idiot Barleywine in oak bourbon casks. This incredible combination creates a melange of flavors such as malt, dates, oak, vanilla, and bourbon just to name a few.

Smoky,peat,whiskey on the nose. Deep cherry brown in color with great head. Champagne bubbles. Nice and velvety, with bourbon, molassas, vanilla and decent oak on the finish. Creamy mouthfeel with a good alcohol warmth. This is an impressive beer!

Twentys (41) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Smells like hoppy bourbon. Perhaps a perfect aroma. Hazy, brown, cider color, full head, good lacing. Sweet, very oaty, almost cherry-like. Man, it smells fantastic.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Bottle poured a murky caramel with a nice thick head. Sweet malty, yeast and alcohol aroma. Sweet, ripe fruit and caramel flavor with a sweet, clean finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. Great beer.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2005
If you want a beer that feels like drinking whiskey this is for you. Alcohol whiskey aromas stand out thoughout the beer. Murky brown body with tan head and some lacing. Has a mild sweet flavor. But the alcohol pressence may be overwhelming if not use to haveing this type of brew. Flavor warms the body so this would make a good winter brew I would think. Little harsh a=on the palate. A big brew for a big man is what this amounts to, insane is right.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Big thanks to chilehead for sharing this bottle. Very nice reddish pour with a substantial head (big for a BW). Aroma is sweet, cherries and alcohol. Quite sweet but very smooth, cherry is somewhat dominant, oak rounds out the balance. Reminds one of a manhatten cocktail, but certainly not in a bad way. Good stuff.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Bottle, ruddy copper and hazy pour. Big oaked aroma, malty and bready, and a touch of vanilla. Toasty malt flavors and bready, with more oak characteristics here too along with bourbon and sweet caramel. Alcohol is present in both aroma and flavor. Very enjoyable beer for me.

BeerandBlues2 (10774) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 11, 2005
22-oz. bomber from ernest. Pours hazy ruby bronze with a thin tan fizzy head that goes edgy yet leaves enough for some fair spotty lacing. Berry hop oak and caramel malt (cookie) aroma with yeast (cobwebs, dough) and plum notes, some bourbon as well. Flavor is caramel malt and candy with fusel alcohol, bourbon and toffee, hoppy fruit. Warm and medium bodied dry palate.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Nose-almost a wheaty medicine like smell. Hazy brown body with a small spotty film of bubbles. Taste-sweet, rich caramel, some milk chcolate and perfume. Not bad, but not great.

Kevin (2154) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 5, 2005
dark red pour with a light grey head. doughy wine nose. very hot, alcohol bite. wood flavor all over. strong raisin and some light chocolate, but the booze is killing me. the finish is alcohol and burn.

Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2005
GABF 2005: Looked good, smelled good, didn’t really taste that good. I ended up having several barley wines and this didn’t make the cut.
