Beowulf is probably one of the hardest bosses in the game. It's recommended that you come in with either Swordmaster (so you can hit his face, his weak spot while in the air) or Trickster to avoid his attacks.

Once the battle starts, all Beowulf will do is use a three-hit combo. He'll swing his fists which have a good range so Trickster or jump out of the way and he'll finish by slamming his fist into the ground, giving you a few seconds to attack him. If you manage to hit his face, he'll be stunned but he'll swing his arms twice to knock you away if you're near him so try to get behind him.

After about taking 1/4 of his health, he'll retreat to a corner and stomp the ground, causing a metal cage to fall down and he'll kick it toward you. You can simply roll to the side to avoid this. He'll usually do this three times. During this phase of the fight he'll either do his three-hit combo or he'll send out a huge pillar of light. You'll know when he does this when he rears back and slams into the ground. Simply stay away from Beowulf to avoid this. On occasion he'll also run around the room, trying to knock you down. You can jump over him to avoid this.

After taking out about a half or 3/4 of his health, he'll go into Berserk mode in which he'll do any of the attacks listed above, including a new one. He'll spread his wings out and shoot a bunch of feathers at you. This is very difficult to dodge. Having Trickster equipped is the best bet to dodge these. I'd double jump and then use Trickster to fly through the air to avoid them.

Rushing into this fight will only get you killed very fast. Wait for your openings to attack, which are usually after his three-hit combo and his pillar of light attack. This is a very lengthy battle but if you can manage to hit him in the face, which is his weak spot, it will make it go by a little quicker.
