Orange wax (2013 Version)
A - Brown/Red in color. semi opaque- a bit hazy. white cream head- finger thick, lots of lacing.
S - Good amount of hops. carmel, dried fruit. scent of an IPA.
T - Hoppy. If your expected the english style - haha....certainly not that. Carmel malt sweetness. initially real sweet but bitter as it goes down. wine + IPA?
M - viscosity is high but froth level is a bit unimpressive - med/low. covers the mouth decently tho.
O - I honestly would not know this was a barleywine. Yes, I understand it was the American version. But it really tastes and feels like a Imperial IPA with a small amount of sweet red wine added. Whatever you wanna call it, it did enjoy it - while very sweet, I would recommend it.

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.
