Weyerbacher Insanity

February 28, 2014

Ah yes, Weyerbacher. I feel like it has been too long since I’ve discussed my favorite brewery from the middle of nowhere (well not nowhere, they have a crayon factory), and so I’m very glad to talk about this beer. The Insanity is an oak aged version of their Blithering Idiot, and it is positively fantastic.

The beer is opaque with a dark brown color and little to no head. The scent is a downright enchanting mixture of nuts, vanilla, baking spices, and good old oak. It’s thick and creamy in your mouth with a smooth velvety quality going down, making it a delight to drink.

This is a brew of particularly strong flavors that bloom across your tongue as you drink. As can be expected from the barrel-aging, you get a burst of bourbon and oaky goodness out of this beer; oak, vanilla, and bourbon itself are all present. These flavors pair particularly well with the sticky sweet malt and dark fruit notes that washes through toward the end before the beer crests on a note of booze. The finish leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy.

Made for the deep winter season (January/February) this beer should be still available, and with another polar vortex on the way, now is the perfect time to enjoy it.
