COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Huge sweet body, big flavors and high alcohol levels, this beer is best enjoyed by a raging fire. Complex caramel sweetness is well balanced by generous hopping, delivering an intense, smooth drinking experience. Intense fruity caramel malts, citrus hops, and alcohol notes waft up to tickle your senses.

Tap, FFF, Ratebeer Summer Party 2k3. Big northwestern hop aroma. Big caramel malt flavor. Dryish finish. Excellent.

Thanks to jcalabre for this one. My first thought was that it would go good poured over french toast. Very dark, thick sweet candy with enough kick to burn in it's impression all the way down. Somehow it all comes together to be enjoyable, though atypical of the style from my experience.

On tap at the brewery: Light brown with a tan head. Piney hops and alcohol aroma. Sticky mouth feel ends really sweet. Too sweet if you ask me.

Indra (2711) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Hefty aroma, dripping with caramel, pine, flowers, spices and citrus. Dark copper color with a very fine, creamy, uneven head. Massive dosage of hops here and VERY sweet, thick, syrupy maltiness, more caramel and bitter, juicy, resinous hops. Some balance is achieved although everything here is present in astounding quantities. Long, lingering, bitter, alcoholic, spicy finish. Would have been better had it not been served to me just a little too cold and in a cheap plastic cup. You'd think the brewers would know better.

Rated at RB 2003. Thick creamy head, brownish. Sweet and juicy malts with hints of caramel. I found a bit too heavy. Vintage probably would taste better.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2005 Rerate 2002 batch: As aged wonderfully with a deep fruity and vinous quality. The hops are now subdued with the framework of the brew and it is a behemoth but more graceful that ever before... Original review: On tap at Brewery. Multicolored hue of red/brown/orange with a average sized head and good lacing. Full bodied. Breathtaking aroma of smoke, brown sugar, grapefruit, molasses, dark bread with a hint of roasted malt and nuts. Sweet taste with a moderate level of alcohol, smooth for a beer this big. Syrupy and soft mouthfeel. I’m not the biggest fan of barleywine, this one could change my mind.

Visited the brewery this weekend to get my second keg of Dreadnaught. They were out so I was offered a keg of Behemoth. This is not an ordinary Three Floyds brew. There is a hop nose, but very little hop in the flavor. Flavor consists of caramel, raisins and alcohol. Another great brew but this keg will last forever, it absolutley kicks you in the ass. Thanks Three Floyds for the hangovers my wife and I will incur over the next few months.

Large(almost Behemoth) citrusy hop flavors! Chinooks!? Big ass beer! Alc. making it presence known as it warms. Would age well. Do they bottle this yet? Thanks Belgianhomebrew!
