Insanity is a barleywine, namely Weyerbacher’s Blithering Idiot aged in oak bourbon. Blithering Idiot is full of caramel malts, subtle alcohol (for being 11%), slightly sweet, slightly fruity. After the oak aging, Insanity carries those elements from the barleywine plus vanilla, bourbon, and oak. I’ve become a huge fan of oak aged beers.
Serve in a tulip glass, or snifter, around 50 degrees F. Suitable for cellaring.
