Growler $15. Consumed over 3 days in a cabin in the north woods over Christmas.

A - Poured out a auburn/copper color with a foamy, tan, three-finger head. It left thin sticky rings of lace.

S - It smelled of grassy and very mossy. There was a sweet roasted malt aroma, too.

T - It tasted slightly smoky, biscuity roasted malt, grassy subtle hops. Nice caramel and toffee flavors, too.

M - It was soft and smooth. A medium-bodied beer that hid its alcohol content well.

D - This was really outstanding. I'd love to have it on tap from the brewery.

Fitger's Sasquatch Ale (a Scotch Ale) proved to be a pleasant experience. The nose
is toasty dark malt, the brew is a finger of foam that collapses into a dark brown brew.
The flavor is rich and malty with mocha notes, with a slight herbal hop finish. A nice
solid, round bodied brew.

Originally reviewed February 11, 2005. On tap at the brewpub. Nice lacing. Off-white head. Great auburn to mahogany sunburst. Speaks of egg-nog and roast turkey, but backed up by fig and cherry. Extremely creamy, with a nice bright hops finish. Smacks of caramel and cranberries. Dusky, almost a little smoky, like a distant waft of burnt birch bark. Unlike the other Bourbon Barrel aged beer I’ve had at Fitgers, this one didn’t get too sweet or piquant and taste too much like bourbon, instead it mellowed it, added depth, and rounded out with a good crisp oaken texture. Fantastic palate, smooth and cream across the tounge, but bright and sweet as a whole.
