Accidentally reviewed the barrel aged before. Sorry. This should be the correct beer.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bomber with Green Wax.

A - Pours a slightly hazy, muddy and murky orange color with some golden hints. There is a slight fizzling head that recedes quick and is off white.

S - Sweet caramel and boozyness with some great flowery hop notes. Tons of malt strength as well as great grapefruit sweetness with excellent citric notes as well. There are some great sweet dark fruit notes as well. The hops are very enticing in this beer. With tons of piney resin in there as well.

T & M- Starts off with some nice bready grain that then turns into great caramel and tropical fruit sweetness. There are some nice malt hints in this beer and the hops really just support it as opposed to other ABs. There is great citrus notes and grapefruit and orange flavors. So well balanced but very very flavorful.The beer is very full and rich and with caramel flavors. There is a strong malt backbone and a nice strong but complimentary hop presence. There is some nice boozy heat that goes a long way for this beer.

D - I really enjoyed this Barleywine for the surprising balance. ABV is higher but still very good beer. This is by far my favorite AB out there.

2008 vintage

Purple Wax Bottle (2008)

Moderate pour into shaped pint produces a massive white head. Retention is much better than expected, a slim cap sits atop until the end. Loads of lacing left clinging to the glass. The one problem I have with the appearance has more to do with the name. Behemoth is not a blonde barleywine. If it is blonde it is a strawberry or dirty blonde. the body is a caramelized orange color, nice color but certainly not blonde.

With the bottle being from 2008 I know I will be missing a lot of aromas which have faded over time. The aroma is full of malt. Sweet toasted pale malt, caramel and brown sugar scents ooze from the glass. Subtle hints of citrus are intertwined but barely make a dent in the malty presence.

Similar to the aroma, the flavor is largely centered around the malt. Liquid caramel flavors coat the tongue. Toasted bready pale malt is set just underneath. Very faint bits of pineapple and citrus are barley recognizable. Light bitterness remain while the majority of the hop flavor has faded. Despite the lack of hop intensity and overwhelming amounts of caramel, Behemoth avoids being cloying.

Full bodied barlyewine with low but appropriate carbonation. Thick but smooth texture, very velvety on the tongue. The finish is long but pleasant.

Solid offering from Three Floyd's. While there are many attributes that can be enjoyed the one worth talking about is the alcohol. At 12.5% the booze is almost nonexistent. There is no doubt age helped mellow the flavors out but a certainly level of craftsmanship is needed to produce a product such as this. Tremendously drinkable given the abv. Behemoth is not on the top of my list of beers to try again but I will certainly seek it out in the future.

It seems like she has so much to share, but, really, it is only 22 oz. Still - plenty to go around.

2008 I guess - it is the purple wax, thanks Craig!

It pours a watered down caramel apple color, nothing like the blonde I was expecting. Those damn Floydian triplets have got me again. It is glorious, resonant, resplendent.

She reeks of faint hops, caramel, strong booze, and regrettable whims. One sip and I'm hooked, I'll come back here often, you see. Just to watch her dance. Prominent malt and hops, a slightly sweet crystal finish with the right balance, slight oxidation even through the royal seal.

Her heft is striking, her balance insufferable. She is my warrior princess (of the Midwest).

2010 green wax.

A - Nothing very blonde here, as it pours a tawny caramel-amber hue, capped with minor froth and leaving not so much lace.

S - The smell is basically the same as the taste; it is malty with a pronounced cereal-grain element, heavily (and muddily) hopped, and slightly sweet with no hint of the abv within. Though it is fairly pleasant, it is certainly not exceptional in any way.

T - Let others wax superlative, I will handle this with a bit of comparative analysis: Behemoth is relatively pricey compared to many widely available barleywines and is not commensurately better; I don't think it as good as most BWs of any regard.
Specifically, regardless of price, better examples can be had by Anchor, Stone, Great Divide, and Sierra Nevada. Of widely available ABWs, I prefer Behemoth only to Avery's offering.

M - Nice enough, it has a big body but is not overly viscous.

D - Drink it? Okay. Buy it? Perhaps at a deep discount...

poured into a tulip.

A.

pours a nice dark amber color with about 1 finger of offwhite head. a very beautiful looking beer.

S.

malt dominant. reminds me of a german dunkel. I was expecting something more fruity but still very good smelling. i smell some dark fruits in there. some floral hops in the aroma as well. subtle booze smell as well

T.

a very sweet at the beginning and then hoppy at the end. caramelly malts, with some fruity tones to it. like a hoppy dunkel. i get a smoothness at the beginning and a bitter hoppiness at the end. The first initial taste and you're thinking its a really sweet beer, but the hops really cut that sweetness.

M.

about full bodied. a lot of carbonation and nice lacing on the glass.

D.

pretty good, even for it being high in alcohol. only thing setting it back would be the price. i will definitely grab this again however. would like to try it fresh from the tap at the brewpub as well.

2009 Released Bottle

A: A rocky off-white head sits on top of a hazy brown/amber hue with yellow highlights.

S: Surprisingly there is not booze in the nose of this beer. Instead, there is a strong floral hop aroma, sweet brown sugar, caramel malts, & dark fruits.

T: The taste is very similar to the smell, but a little more on the simple side of barleywines. Again sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, & bitter piney hops are on the palate. There is a little warming in the finish from the ABV. I think I would have enjoyed this more if it was a little more complex or sweeter.

M: Medium to full body with average carbonation & an oily texture.

D: Althought I enjoyed this beer, I would say on the drinkability it was very average. I don't think this is the most amazing barelywine, but definitely worth a try. Smooth & easy to drink, but a little more bitter then expected.

Bomber with purple wax. I was happy to find this on a recent visit to Indianapolis. Color is a cloudy copper with a light foamy head. Smell is extremely sweet with hints of honey, pine syrup, and glaze. Taste is mellow and sweet, balanced between sweet bread/honey flavors and some piney hops. This is much easier to drink than I was expecting and very smooth.. (having to do with the age perhaps??)

Very nice.. just a little expensive.

Purple Wax Bottle (2008)

Pours a massive white head with a garnet colored body. head later becomes a ring around the glass with light lacing.

Smell of sweet grapefruit, caramel, brown sugar and dark fruit.

Taste of Strong caramel, Brown Sugar all over the place, cherry, citrus and grapefruit. There is a slight astringency, but finishes relatively dry. Plum and cherry seem to be the dark fruits, also mixing with a little cotton candy flavor.

Mouthfeel is relatively light for a 12.5 Barleywine, although it is a blonde which would counteract any thickness you might be expecting. Very light on carbonation, nearly flat, but still pretty good. Very smooth going down

Got this in a trade. Thanks Andy. Blue Wax, 22oz bottle...

A: Murky copper / ruby red mix with a 1 inch off white head that quickly fades to a lace atop the brew. Decent.

S: Some super sweet caramel malts assault me first quickly followed by subtle flowery hops and heavy booze on the backend. I get a little bit of toffee and almost like a hint of Windex scent, weird. Good.

T: I get a quick sweet malt that is quickly overthrown by piney hop. Some caramel and toffee blended in the middle with some earthiness on the backend. Hmm, this is decent, but kind of a little bit of a letdown.

M: Light body with a nice carbonation. Good.

D: Once you get past the hop wall. It's good.

All in all, this is an ok brew. Not great, but good. Don't bother hunting, but ok to try if you like a hoppy barleywine.

Poured from yellow wax bottle. Review from notes...

A- Pours a deep brownish amber color. When held to the light more red highlights pop out. Very small white head showed for a second and ringed the side of the glass. No real lacing at all.

S- Darker fruits pop out first here. Some light brown sugar notes kind of hype up the sweetness on this. Light citrus hops in here too to counterbalance the sweetness a little bit. Caramel malts shine with a light cherry undertone.

T- Sweet caramel malts in the front of this blend together well with a darker fruit complex. Plums and cherries mostly in there. Citrus hops counterbalance the sweetness and help with the sweet malts. A light alcohol in the backend brings up the beer and finishes it off. Nothing too much in the alcohol but enough to make its point.

M- Medium heavy mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Some darker fruits left on the palate with warming alcohol in the aftertaste. Flavors were well blended which I expected more so since the age on this is pretty good. Medium drying on the palate from alcohol.

D- I think this beer is at its prime. Time to drink up if you have this color wax. Wish I had a couple more to be honest. A nice mellowed out American Barleywine.

2010 vintage.

Pours a golden red/amber with about 2-3 fingers of head which dies pretty quickly. Great lacing and a perfect amount of carb for this style. Smells are sweet caramel malts, slight hop, brown sugar and some raisins. Tastes sweet at front with some earthy tones, dark fruit, hops at the end then a sweet caramel/toffee finish. Wow, this is amazing. Mouthfeel is slightly chewy, good carb, feels great to me. Drinkability is very high for a barleywine, but then again I love barleywines. I really wish i would have picked up a case of this when I saw it on sale for $13/bottle. This beer is aces!

Three Floyds: Behemoth Blonde Barleywine (2008, Purple) (Tasted 08/13/10)
22 oz. bottle, poured into a snifter

Appearance: Blonde, eff that, this beer is a dark amber color, lightly hazed from the yeast. Head is surprisingly quick to form and stays put as a frothy cap that leaves chunks of lace along the sides of the glass. Two years old, damn.
Odor: There's two kinds of oxidation, good oxidation and the other kind. This smells GREAT. Tart cherry, ripe currant and a measured tinge of soy, with the shadow of faded C hops looming overhead.
Consistency: Medium body, oily and slick from the high alcohol content, low carbonation.
Taste: Light caramel sweetness forms a base, shifting towards toffee and burnt sugar in the finish. Cherry flashes in and out, adding some dimension. Alcohol is surprisingly restrained for such a big gal, but it certainly does flex, warming and fruitiness. Faded hops are more assertive than one would guess from the aroma, providing a low to moderate bitterness that makes itself apparent in the finish, which, coupled with the bittersweet dark caramel flavors provide some semblance of balance.

Bottle. 2008 release. Nice, sweet malty backbone with sugary notes of caramel and some hint of fruity, citrus hops. This barley wine is so well balanced in my opinion. The alcohol is just barely traceable, but that doesn't make it any less drinkable. Medium-full body with an oily mouthfeel. Warm and comforting.

Behemoth has a very dark, reddish body with a solid yet thin tan head. The head sticks around for quite a while, and even on a snifter it leaves some excellent lacing.

Rich malt a biting hops are both prevalent in the aroma. Lots of pine mixed with citrus. Toffee, caramel and sweetness come from the malts.

I really don't think Behemoth is terribly complicated, but with that said it is still a good barleywine. The hops come through first, providing a boat load of bitterness with flavors of pine, resin, and grapefruit (in that order). I wouldn't pick out one of the hop characteristics as dominant, but I would say that the hops are a little more powerful than the malt. Not that the malt bill is small, as it provides a big, rich backbone to this beer with flavors of toffee and caramel. Dark, rum soaked fruits also make an appearance before a burst of alcohol warmth finishes the beer out.

The body is surprisingly light, although it has a low to moderate carbonation level. It isn't what I expected, but I have to say that it works.

Behemoth is a good barleywine, and I'm happy to have tried it fresh, because I can leave the bottle I have in my cellar for a year or two now.

Blue wax tasted from 22oz bottle at Lush Roscoe. The pour is clear amber with a fairly thin white head that leaves light lace around the glass. Nose of sweet caramel malt with citrus and herbal hops and some oxidative nuttiness. The hops really take over on the palate leaving the sweetness and malts on the back burner. The body is full with light carbonation and a long caramelized and super hoppy finish.

Green Wax. Poured into a Lost Abbey tulip. Thanks to Kelly88 for the trade.

Two finger off white head. Amber/ruby body with bubbles traveling up the side of the glass. Superb retention and plenty of lacing left behind.

Smells of sweet caramel and toffee malts backed up by apricot and mango hops, and a hint of alcohol.

Taste follows smell lightly salted caramel, toffee, raisins, brown sugar, plumbs, and figs. Then apricot, mango, peach and tobacco resin hops with a smack of alcohol on the end. Not as sweet in the taste, and much more bitterness to keep things in check

The mouthfeel is full bodied without being too heavy. Smooth and creamy carbonation and definitely some heat.

In the words of Ron Burgundy, "It's so damn hot! Barleywine was a bad choice." So yeah, maybe I didn't pick the best hot and sunny Saturday afternoon to crack this one open, despite that, getting through this bomber wasn't much of a struggle.

Another new one for me, we brought a bunch over to the fourth of July cookout. Served cold and poured
into a nice tasting glass, this one was consumed on 07/04/2010.

Could not believe that I really had never tried this one. Well that was about to change! Purple wax
was split between me and Rich. Poured out a nice and lazy amber color with a thick head of white that
while staying low to the surface, certainly had some nice staying power.

Feel is like syrup, just thick, and really filling. Loads of hops jumping right out at me, even with a
little age on it. Fresh pine, hints of candied sugar, an almost medicinal like quality at times peaks
its head up. Still though all very, very nice. Rich flavor here, candied sugar, notes of hops and rich
grassy, herbal qualities. For as strong as this one was it really kept the ABV very, very nicely
hidden. Sipping an hour later I was amazed at just how well rounded this one really was.

Overall just a super solid and very well put together Bwine. I could have drank this one all day!

Green Wax. 2010. 10.5%.

Murky looking toffee colored body. Creamy off white head leaves its mark as I drink. The malt sweetness on the nose is nice and rounded. Caramel based and speckled with cane sugar goodness. Just the slightest bit of alcohol and tropical fruitiness. Palate brings more of the same. Subtle caramel base with fruity complexities and a little warmth. Rich and quite smooth for the strength. Though there is some alcohol that lingers afterwards. It's a malt forward barleywine, which is surprising given the breweries history with hops. Good though. And hops do provide some balance.

Had my eye on this one for about 8-9 years now. Patience pays off. It showed up at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee so I nabbed a bottle. Worth the wait.

Latest ( green wax 2010 ) edition. Poured with a fine, smallish, light tan to cream colored head and a little lace. Color is a clear, copper amber. Aroma isn't too complex - massively malty and hoppy. Flavor is similar which is aka bittersweet. Good body and fine carbonation. Fairly long finish that is like flavor. Despite massiveness and strength (don't really pick up much alcohol) of this beer, could almost qualify it as a session.

On tap at Three Floyds on 7/21/09. Pours gold with beautiful frothy eggshell head. Super citrusy hops aroma with a touch of caramel. Nice sweetness up front followed by a solid bitterness. Medium body with okay carb. Good bitter finish with a little touch of caramel on the tongue. Incredible american barley wine.

Drank from a 1 pint 6 fl oz/650 ml bottle purchased at the Three Floyds Brewing Co., Munster, IN
2009 Bottle release - Blue Wax
Served in a snifter

I always appreciate good artwork on beer bottles and Three Floyds happen to have some of the best. This one shows a "behemoth" blonde being ogled by onlookers as she cracks the floor below her. Amazing. Let us hope that the beer itself is as "big" as she is.

The beer poured a hazy, glowing, orangey-amber color with a bubbly, light tan, sea foam head which faded to a mass of clumpy froth. Thick streaks of sticky lacing cascaded all down the glass.

Outrageous aroma. Sweet with tons of bready, caramel malts and loads of brown sugar. Molasses and toffee notes came through strong as well. Slightly citric and fruity. Overall, very fragrant and aromatic.

Caramel malt sweetness again came through strong in the taste. The sweetness however was kept in check. Bready with notes of molasses, brown sugar and ripe, juicy fruits (possibly some tropical fruits). Slightly sticky. Loads of peach flavor as well. Orange peel was apparent in the crisp and hoppy yet balanced finish. Resinous pine notes appeared as well. The finish was pleasantly boozy, with a sweet, brandy-like flavor. Strong pine and grapefruit notes lingered in the aftertaste.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied. Creamy, smooth and pillowy soft on the palate. A touch thinner however than I anticipated for a beer of this magnitude.

Drinkability was outstanding. This is a "huge" beer, yet it is somehow still graceful and mellow. At 12.5% ABV, it hid its alcohol prowess dangerously well. I am assuming that the year of age I put on my bottle was the perfect amount.

Three Floyds produces nothing less than outstanding beers and this offering merely reaffirms my love for their products. If there is a barleywine out there better then this one, I have yet to try it.

2010 vintage

A:golden amber color with a one finger off white head with some pretty decent lacing. the head dies down into nothing after halfway through the glass

S:Smells of huge flowering pine tree hops. definitely has a big sweet background but those hops are just tearing into the smell. really big anticipation from the smell

T: The malt comes through a lot in the front of my mouth but the back of my mouth is screaming with bitterness. really nice caramel light citrus with the aftertaste of lots of pine. theres a spiciness in the end like a cinnamon spiced orange while getting slapped in the face with a pine tree branch. delicious!

M: A nice pop of carbonation right when sipped but dulls out real nice to let those hops do their damage. leaves a real silky mouthfeel that makes my mouth yearn for more

D: 10% isn't crazy huge but the beer goes down pretty well. there really isnt an alcohol impact with this beer. the taste is so big with hops it doesn't even allow the alcohol to appear.

malty through out with a sweetness up front. nice light bitterness through out. bits of caramel and dark fruit. light alcohol presence in the finish.

very full bodied, slight chewy, moderate carbonation

nice flavor, great body, but the price and ABV kill this a bit. i would buy this again though, id love to try it fresh.

2008 Purple wax. Wife picked this up a couple years ago in Chicago and have been sitting on it for a special occasion. Tonight is Thursday and we're having brats?!?! Whatever.

A - Opaque 'blondesih' red with thin lacing of tan head that fades quickly.

S - Sweet caramel malts and floral hops. Surprised at the floralness of the hops in this 2 year old b-wine.

T - Sweet up front with caramel middle and light hop bitterness as it goes down. I'd love to taste this one fresh to see how it has aged but guessing by most FFF beers I'm sure it was a huge hop bomb. The sweetness is remeniscent of Mirror Mirror although this is 2 years old.

M - Nice light carbonation and malty sweetness through and through.

D - Very sweet but the hops really balance this thing out nicely.

Overall a very good b-wine...sweet and hoppy but neither are overwhelming. Although I like American my b-wines hoppy this is what I expected aged. I think this would be a fun vertical to do although at $18.99 for a bomber I'm not sure I can justify buying anymore than 1/year.

2007 vintage with the yellow wax. Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Dogfish snifter. Poured a deep mahogany color with a bit of cherry red highlights. The head mostly clung to a small ring around the edges of the glass. It left some pretty decent lacing on the glass as I drank it as well.

The aroma has some nice malty, dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar tones to it. The dark fruit flavors have some nice plum, fig and a little cherry to it. It has a bit of citrus coming through which compliments the sweet maltiness pretty well. Not too much alcohol but enough to let you know it's a potent beer. Pretty nice and not overly sweet aroma to it.

The taste shows a lot of the caramel and dark fruit flavors that the nose had. It has a nice sweet malty flavor but it isn't cloyingly sweet. It has a bit of citrus that helps counter the sweetness a bit. It finishes with a warming alcohol flavor to it.

The mouthfeel is on the heavier side with carbonation being moderately low. It has a bit of a silky and creamy feel to it as well. The drinkability is decent, it had some very nice malty flavors to it. The alcohol hurts the drinkability a bit but but not too bad. Overall I liked it a lot.
