At Al’s of Hampden, I ordered a glass of Weyerbacher Heresy. The beer pours a black color with a thin tan head. The aroma consists of chocolate, toasted malts, caramel, alcohol, bourbon, and oak. The taste is smooth and silky with lots of chocolate on the tongue. Toasted malts, light bourbon warmth, and a bourbon bite on come out to play on the finish. There is a smooth vanilla and caramel after taste. The alcohol content is 8% ABV. The Heresey was a smooth and excellent beer that did not have a punishing alcohol bite from the bourbon barrels, but a nice bourbon accent.
