3.8/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Mix of strawberry and cooked cherry juice. Somewhat murky and mysterious. Minimal head with a small ring of white bubbles around the glass.
S: Bit of cherry, maple, oak, some pine, brown sugar and a touch of bubblegum..
T: Starts off with rounded fruity flavors (cherry, fig, strawberries) then moves to nice caramel malts with stiff citrus hops hitting the center of the tongue. Some earthy dirty hops round out the finish. Alcohol vaprs as it warms. Aftertaste is sort of cherry Robitusin.
M: Thick, syrupy.
D: Over rated I thought. Aftertaste was cloying and not so great. WAY better barleywines out there.

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.
