July 3, 2013 - bottle shared by Jeff. Our final beached whale came from someone other than Joe shockingly. This was just like the bourbon behemoth, but with some tart cherry. Just like how GI added cherry to BCS, adding cherry to BA Behemoth is a winner. The tart cherry adds another layer of complexity to an already fabulous beer, but does not overwhelm the other flavors. A nice conclusion to an amazing night, thanks Joe and Jeff!

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle. Good caramelly toffee, vanilla aroma. Cloudy dark brown orange colour. Small white head. The flavour has a good vanilla note with a nice citric note, must be the cherries, but also tastes like a sort of wine or brandy barrel. Rather boozy finish, but I suppose OK mellow.

Bottle at Mikkeller & Friends, shared with four other freaks. (the price was 750dkk) A bit hazy reddish/brown with a small head. What a great beer this one! Cherries, malt, some notes of alcohol, oak, toffee, vanilla and some dried fruit. An excellent beer, world class!

Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of bourbon, vanilla, toffee and sweet malt. A bit booze. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Quite nice but not better than the original.

brystmar (1257) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 3, 2013
Brad, thanks! Cherries amidst the hearty malt base work surprisingly well. I don't know what else to write about this: it's just an unbelievably good barleywine. Much closer to an English than an American. And the fruit works phenomenally.
