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.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2005
All malt barley wine. Flavors fell flat and overly sweet without the hops. This was aromatic at first but quickly cloying.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Deep orange with a creamy off white head. Loved the aroma on this with a rich inviting nose of oak, fig, plum, caramel, bourbon, citrus and vanilla. Boozy bourbon flavors hits hard up front, but quickly get enveloped by the wood, vanilla, dark fruit, and vanilla aspects. Just a real nice flavor throughout (if bourbon is your thing). Medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying, bittersweet finish. Ill bet even more aging will do this wonders, but I just couldnt wait anymore. Nice stuff which I hope they continue to bring around here and there...

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Bottle from Brad. pours amber red w/ light tan head. Nose of candy, yeast, alcohol. taste is doughy and sweet candy. A bitter alcohol finish, now arming, just dryness.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2005
22 oz. Bottle: Pours an amberish dark brown color with a white head. Aromas are very dark sweet fruits, caramel, oak and strong presense of bourbon alcohol. Flavor was bitingly sweet, overly so in fact, with lots of sugary treats like caramel, toffee, vanilla. Finishes with a little less of an alcohol bite, but isnt all that warming.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Murky brown and dark orange color. Small offwhite head. Wood, alcohol, and raisins in the aroma. Dark fruit flavors, raisins and figs, with a sweet malty character that is prevaded by a tinge of oakiness. The wood and astringent aspects of the fruit are especially evident in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and big, with a tinge of alcohol heat.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 27, 2005
22 oz, capped bottle: pours a deep, garnet with purple hues and a light tan, creamy head. Oaky, alcohol phenols in the aroma, along with butterscotch, pecans, and caramel. Sweet, vegetal-like flavours initially; lightly bitter with darkly toasted caramel fritter clusters. More butterscotch mixed with loads of vanilla beans and honey butter. Alcohol is laced throughout the palate and flavours, but isnt overpowering and is oddly soothing. This really was a tasty treat, thanks a bunch Hopdog!

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Brown color with a quick head. Nice sweet barley wine with a little or no bitterness. Thick and and smooth caramel taste.

nicholai (100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2005
Brownish red with a quickly dissapearing, leaves some belgian lace. Lovely smell of grapes, yeast, earthy, caramel and oak. The taste is smooth and velvety, but not as busy as the smell. Well masked alcohol.

tsarman (794) - Northern, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2005
Very similar to the Blithering Idiot. The Bourbon cask element does not dramatically improve the beer. Amazing cover art though and an amazing name. Very solid beer, but not as amazing as a transformation as Prophecy. 22 ozer. Reddish brown with medium head. Very easy to drink for a strong Barley wine. Some sweetness and tartness is evident. As it warms, it does develop. This is a beer to enjoy over a long long night.
