thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2011
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours muddy amber with a small, off-white film head. Heavy hoppy vinious aroma, fine oakiness, pine, apple and a bit of alcohol sharpness. Low carbonation, fat and oily palate. Flavour is quite sweet, some vanilla peeps out under the caramel malts, light sugary feel with a fine balanced and heavy bitterness. Very warming finish. Nice, but a tad too sweet and a bit too strong in alcohol.

On tap at DLD11. Murky brown with almost no head. Bourbon papery aroma lots if bourbon and malts. Bourbon cherries malt flavors. Dry and hot. Nice beer though. The rich malts, fruit and bourbon blend well. This was one of my favorites of the day.

Light oak, touches of Bourbon spirit. Simple, still hoppy, with wet tannins and some faint oxidation. Initial is fuller bodied, sweet sticky malts mesh into citrusy and floral hops, sweet sticky malts, into the finish with wet oak, vanilla, oxidized caramel malts, sweet and sticky the barrel is flavorful but not hot. Really sweet, deadened faded hops. Nice, but sweet. Really a great barrel flavor, but not hot. Sweet, some dry hops. Very nice.

fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2011
On tap at the 3 Floyds brewpub. Aroma:Bourbon, sweet malt, and dark fruits. Appearance:Muddy brown with very little head Taste:The bourbon really overpowers all of the other flavors on the first few sips. After you get used to it, the deep rich malt sweetness comes through, as well as dark fruits. Buried beneath the other flavors is candied orange peel, which adds an interesting complexity. Palate:Thick and syrupy with some hot alcohol. Overall:This is an amazing transformation of the Behemoth to a barrel aged beer. Tons of complexity, and very delicious.

Hair6a11 (1313) - Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2011
On tap at FFF. Pour is dark amber with off white head. Modest head, light retention. Bourbon barrel notes dominate the nose. This brew retains its palatability and drinkability from the standard behemoth. Bourbon, vanilla, citrus, and toffee are present. The bourbon does dominate in my opinion, but not overpowering in the sense that this barley wine base was never overpowering to begin with
