    Can't wait. A kind BA popped open an '07 for us last night & it was unbelievably good. I'd have figured it wouldn't have aged so well, but it bloody well did. I'll be grabbing a few four-packs on first sight.

    Does this stuff normally sell out pretty quick around here? I'm not really in the mood for another beer hunt quite yet...

    Does this stuff age really well or something? I just got one as an extra in a trade and drank it next to a CW BBBW. The CW absolutely crushed it.

    See my post above: the '07 we just had was killer. I love it fresh though, too. Central Waters makes one of my favorite bourbon barrel barleywines, it'd be interesting to have them side by side, though I'd water I'd prefer the CW. We'll see soon!

    Just picked up a 4 pack from South Lyndale, if you are in the area go buy from them as they are hurting from the construction.

    cheers

    It should be around for a couple weeks if history is any guide.

    Beer sale history seems to be unreliable anymore. Last year, I was able to get four packs of KBS well after the release. This year, single and double bottle limits nearly everywhere.

    Seems nearly every seasonal or limited release beer now goes much faster than the previous year.

    Very true. But Weyerbacher has close to zero hype around it...but I suppose stranger things have happened.

    And my history crack was tongue-in-cheek, but I suppose you couldn't see me smirking, huh?

    I think it will be up to the palate. I've never had them side by side, but I would say CW BBBW is definitely a more pronounced BA than Insanity. You can definitely tell Insanity is BA, but to me it's more subtle.

    South Lyndale has it for $15, did it go up in price from last year?
     
  24. Steasy66

    Steasy66 Feb 23, 2012 Minnesota

    No idea what it cost last year, Insanity is new to me to be honest. Pretty hard to justify spending $15-16 on this when CW BBBW is $11.

    I had a bottle. Not that impressed with it. It does not taste that much like a BW to me. It's oddly fruity. I'm going to try it again coming up, but I might have a 2 bottles to unload shortly.
