Weyerbacher Heresy

I guess you could say that I am a mini Weyerbacher Brewing Company binge. I have had a few beers from Weyerbacher down in the cellar for the past sixteen or more months. Now, for no apparent reason, seems to be perfect for tasting and reviewing.

Heresy, a Russian Imperial Stout, is also aged in bourbon barrels. The aroma is made up of bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted malt, cocoa, and a touch of coffee. The taste follows with more of the same, balanced well with each other just as is the nose. A body that is creamy and silky, making for a big body.

The alcohol doesn’t come through which makes for a very drinkable RIS. I think I have another bottle, so it will sit for another year hopefully bringing out more complexities. Enjoy!

Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 10 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 9.0

Useless Fact: Only 16 percent of the able-bodied males in the American colonies participated in the Revolutionary War.
