Three Floyds "Behemoth" (2012)
Three Floyds Brewing Company - Munster, Indiana USA
Barleywine (ABV 10.5%) (IBU 80)

[Best served in a Snifter]

Rating: 4.2/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 9/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 17/20

The pour was a cloudy medium honey copper with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that diminished slowly down to a large puddle and collar of foam which allowed for some excellent sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a caramel malt, pine hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit), dark fruit (cherries) and a slight alcohol tinge.

The taste was sweetly bitter with hints of caramel and dark fruit early on and then progressed into a more pronounced bitterness and mildly acidic with a strong hoppy citrus note and a decent alcohol finish. The flavor hung around for a very long time with a nice hoppy alcohol warming sensation left behind.

Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with an extremely dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall an exquisitely well balanced Barleywine with a nice fruity alcohol presence and a big dose of hops...
