This poured a dark ruby red color with basically no head at all. Aroma was dark fruits, cherries mainly, some sweet malts and a hint of booze as well. Flavor was just amazing. Nice dark cherries over some bourbon, over the already amazing 3F behemoth. Just awesome.

Tap at DLD. This was little different than the regular bourbon aged Behemoth. Cherry notes were minimal, I guess with a 12.5% highly hopped barleywine it is tough to impart subtelty. Minor fruit notes are found here but this is mostly the same ol’ alcohol and super-caramel and bourbon notes of any BA barleywine. I’ve had better.
