Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot Barley-Wine Style Ale

Weyerbacher Brewing Co, Inc

USA

At 11.1% ABV, this will make you a blithering idiot if not consumed with caution. Fortunately, that's not likely to be a problem for me, as I'm not likely to try it again. Don't get me wrong, it's not an awful beer, it's just that barley wines in general don't agree with me, and this one was probably not even one of the stronger ones. Each initial sip was alright, it was the finish that got me. Almost like a burning feeling, that made me make a face akin to Popeye, I think. I only had half (Kris had the other half), but that half alone had more alcohol than a normal 12 oz beer. They say that the more you try something, the more you'll get used to it, but this will take a lot of samplings for me, so I think I'll just stick to the lighter stuff.

Wow is this alcoholic. Not too bad taste-wise, though. Not something you'd want to drink on a regular basis, unless you've just had a liver transplant and want to break in the new one. Or you're my neighbor Gary, and you're getting tired of buying 30 packs of the weak stuff.
