Weyerbacher Insanity

Impression: Beyond a barleywine – this is just like wine. Too much like wine for me, personally. The color is amazing, deep, and dark ruby. There is just a wispy head. The aroma is intoxicating, but the alcohol is very hard to hide. It burns the nostrils. It has a very long, nice aftertaste, and activates all corners of the mouth. It grows quickly on you. It’s strong, but the strength is well crafted. Flavors include raisin, rum, red wine, alcohol, anise, oak, barley. Definitely hard to drink quickly – very much like light shots, and with a strong shock. Chocolate aftertones. Very heavy, thick, cloying, and indulgent. Bold.Weyerbacher Insanity

Aroma: 7 out of 10

Visuals: 5 out of 5

Taste: 7 out of 10

Palate: 5 out of 5

Overall: 17 out of 20. I liked the way it looked, it’s presence, and it’s boldness, but the alcohol content really outweighs any real tasting in this beer, and in a way defeats it.
