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.

Appearance- Pours a dark, murky reddish amber in color with a 1 inch thick white head that slowly fades to leave a nice thin coating across the top of the beer.

Smell- The nose is very hop forward with pine and citrus. Hints of dark fruit and a barely perceptible malt presence.

Taste- Starts off with toffee and graham crackers and rockets its way into orange zest, plums and pine. Finishes with a spicy heat.

Mouthfeel- Heavy body, medium carbonation and somewhat dry.

Overall- An exceptional representation of a barleywine in my opinion. FFF always seems to hit home runs for me.

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