This is a Yellow Wax bottle, making it 4 years, 3 months old at time of drinking.
A-Pours a hazy dark copper color with a quickly disapating finger of head. some lacing.
S&T-sweet caramel, floral, apricot mango and dark fruits, The citrus and piney hops have faded to but a gentle whisper that melds everything together. unbelieveable. Light kiss of alcohol...and this is 12.5%.
M- Insanely smooth, creamy and buttery palate wrapping sensation.
D- it only saddens me to think i can't regularly consume 2 bombers of this often. I think i could. at 12.5...i just can't believe it.
I haven't had this beer fresh yet,now i need to so i have a compareson for this aged one. I'm so glad i have another Yellow Seal in the Cellar! I can't speak for this beer fresh, but go buy some and forget about them for a while.

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.
