4.22/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a deep, slightly cloudy copper-mahogany color; barely any head, light lacing
S: Very light, fruity, floral hop notes. Doesn't smell at all like a barleywine
T: Sweet tropical floral hops up front, transitions into a bitter floral maltiness as it hits the middle of the tongue, then finishes with some strong bitter hops and booze
M: Medium-thick viscosity, kind of creamy, but VERY boozy
O: This had some really interesting flavors dancing around in it, but it's so boozy that it's drinkability is affected. With a few years in the cellar to mellow out i think this beer will be incredible

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.
