Behemoth Blonde Barleywine

Behemoth Blonde – Thanks go out to nlmartin as part of my 2007 Secret Santa. 22oz bomber.
Dark orange pour from the typically, colorful FFF artwork festooned and yellow-wax dipped bottle. Pretty cloudy with a viscous (as expected) body, with some bubbly head (after the aggressive pour), but (as expected) little or no lace.
Sweet and malty alcoholic nose.
Very sweet initial tastes accompanied by a syrupy mouthfeel. Alcohol is apparent upfront too. Then the finish cuts in with the typical American Barleywine hops. Interesting brew because it starts as a more traditionally English BW with lots of sweetness and alcohol, but then finishes in a much more typically American fashion.
Even though the alcohol wasn’t overwhelming, it did seem to take me a much longer period of time than normal to finish this (even considering the style). A bit of a sipper for me.
