Sampled at DLD '09
Was very excited about trying this having sampled the regular BA Behemoth the past two years and loving it.
Unfortunately this one didn't really compare to both the BA and the non ba behemoth. Looks like behemoth with a more dirty approach, very little head.
Smell is of bourbon, hints of wood, some dried fruits and some citrusy hops but mainly alcoholy bourbon.
Not really getting much in the way of cherries in this, maybe a sligh cherry tartness in hte finish. Citrusy hop finish with big wood tannins. Mouth is light and could use more body. Bourbon dominates really with hints of dried fruits and date in the finish.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.
Thanks to John11486 for sharing this one.
Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, cherry, and strong alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel and cherry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid cherry presence but this one is quite boozy all around.

Bottle shared by eorwar at DLD. Served in a DLD mini snifter.
A: Pours a hazy brown color with some orange highlights. A khaki head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin head.
S: Big barrel character with some oak, vanilla and big sweet malts. Some bourbon character with a light hop backing. Light fruity cherries as well.
T: Sweet malt base with a piney hop character. Oak,bourbon and sweet vanilla with a caramel and burnt sugar aspect. Fresh cherries on the back end.
M: Medium bodied with a chewy texture. Medium carbonation with a sweet and fruity texture.
O: I enjoy the regular BA behemoth a lot more than this, but this was still really good. The cherries were there and it was a nice touch.
