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.

bottle. A cloudy brownish red color with a flat offwhite head. Alcoholic aroma with some oak overtones. Strong alcohol flavor with some oak that didnt have a pleasing taste, mostly because of the alcohol. Has a moderately thick feel with an alocohol finish. Its an ok beer but not something that I would drink again.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 Pours a murky amber color with a lasting decent sized off-white head, aroma is of alcohol, sweet malts, and yeast, the flavor was strong with alcohol, there was also something off with the taste i couldnít put my finger on, not bad however.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a murky brownish-red with very little head. We arenít off to a very good start. The aroma is comprised of oak, cough syrup, fruity yeast esters, and strong alcohol. It pretty much tastes like a 2x4 dipped int rubbing alcohol. Not really all that enjoyable.

Bottled. Mine was in the frig for some time. Good beer. Alcohol was very prominent is the smell and taste. The Bourbon was nowhere to be found and that wasnít a bad thing. Actually I think it would have made it a little off balance flavorwise for me.

Tap. Pours a deep amber and has a nice off-white head. Nose is sweet with scents of vanilla and malt. Tastes thick and caramely, but completely smooth and lusciously mouth coating. High alcohol content (12%) offset by sweetness and mellow balanced flavors.

Bomber from Santa
Pours a rich amber/brown with a very sweet aroma of cotton candy and bourbon. Slow moving carbonation and clinging lace are noticeable. Taste is a mellow flow of bourbon and oak, followed by a sweet finish. Fantastic. Utterly fantastic. Palate drips along the tongue, tickling each taste bud with a feather of bourbon as it travels along toward the belly. Warm and invigorating as it falls down the esophogus. This is a DEFINITE repeat (hopefully), and a nice treat. Thanks Santa!

12 oz bottle Lets start by saying this is a little different. Pours a cloudy red auburn. Has a lasting light brown head. It is very murky. Has a toasted oak sweet aroma. A sweet acid taste, very soda like. Has a scotch taste its like scotch beer. Its different but kinda good. Strong abv. Donít drink too many fast.

I think thanks go out to boto for sending this months ago! This starts out with an average sized head of light brown over a dark orange body. The aroma is light malt with some raisin and a fair amount of vanilla. If the oak adds the vanilla to this it is a very nice touch indeed. Sweet but not cloying, and with a very smooth delivery. Very nice.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2006 Re-rate. 22 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy pinkish brown with an off white 1.5 finger head. Aroma is very fruity with notes of vanilla, pine, and alchohol. Flavor is strong of alcohol, sweet burnt caramel that fades into toffee, nuts, and hops. Big mouthfeel with this one. Very good. I agree that it some how is better in 22 oz. than 12 oz.
