Pours an amber color with hints of brown. Decent-sized off-white head with pretty good retention and some lacing.
Aroma is fantastic with caramel malt and piney, citrusy hop notes.
Taste follows the aroma with malt and caramel sweetness followed by a huge piney hop bitterness that leaves a dry, clean, resinous aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is thick and nicely, but lightly, carbonated.
Drinkability is amazing for a 12.5% ABV beer. Can easily drink the whole 22 oz bomber and still want more of its flowery, hoppy, malty goodness.

2014 – Blue wax
A: Poured into a snifter the head built a modest half finger tall. Off white, khaki looking, fell after about 30 seconds. Swirling the beer produces slow falling alcohol legs. The beer is a very haze, dark woody mahogany color with a reddish tint. The lacing left on the side of the glass is just a few small streaks.
S: Fresh smelling hop aroma with citrus and musty pine. A noticeable sweetness coming through from fruity yeast esters and malt character. Caramel and stone fruit with some ethanol.
T: Strong grapefruit and citrus hop bitterness gives way to a sweet malt profile. Toffee, syrup, candy sugar and caramel notes. The hop flavor evolves on the pallet to a more dank pine flavor with some tropical fruit (citra?). The balance is down the middle surprisingly, if this wasn't so fresh I think the malt would win the balance game, but I'm liking the balance of the fresh Behemoth.
M: Big thick body with much residual sweetness. Alcohol warming is there but not overpowering. Carbonation is lower with some stickyness left on the tongue.
O: Don't know why you would age this beer, fresh is the way to go. Fresh hop aroma, great bitterness, it's bassicly a DIPA with a bigger malt body.
