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.

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!

Syrupy sweet, like their Alpha Klaus, even though they are different types of beer. Somewhat hoppy. Even smells awfully sweet. Candy, raisins, and dried fruits - a hint of cocoa. Apples and Pears...somewhat alcoholic finish, but it doesn't burn.

notalush (5561) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2003
[draught] This is one sticky f-in' barleywine - medium hop presence, like a cross between a west coast and east coast brew - vinous, with lots of fruits (cherries and strawberries in particular) - hops in the finish, and vinous notes as well, making for a very odd and not entirely enjoyable finish - still a great barleywine.

Nice rich body full of fruity malt aroma and intense flavors. Malt sweetness balances the alcohol and hops beatifully.

A robust rusty dirt/clay feel to the color. Can not say much for the head as it did not make much of an appearance. Higher than I expected carbonation is the first noticable attribute. A nice spicey sweet aroma with borderline alcohol fumes. Tastes like a harmonic mixture of butterscotch, spice, citrus fruit and alcohol. Damn near impressive.
