Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 07-04-2002

A huge, sweet Barley Wine with complex caramel malt notes, balanced by generous hopping and a high alcohol content. This fruity and malty beer is best enjoyed while keeping warm in the brutal winter months.

Behemoth pours a wonderful dark brown with a thin head and good lacing. This is extremely well balanced, with plummy and toffee notes.

2013 Orange Wax. Color: Nice deep amber, ruby tonez. Smells like caramel and rye spice, maybe red fruits on the tail. Smell follows on through the palate- nice caramel sweetness balanced by that rye spice, with something like apple acidity, fruits. Bit of booze, but I suspect the age has mellowed it considerably.
