Finally, we got some 2011 Bigfoot Barleywine in our area. Found in six pack 12 oz. bottles at grassroots in Riverside, Jacksonville.
A: Pours a deep ruby cola red with a conservative biscuit brown head. Decent clingy lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Smell was good, resinous with pine and burnt sugar notes. Reminds you of a pine forest still in the back country.
T: Big bite of bitter from the hops. Very hops bitter assertive with plenty of grapefruit rind and cedar bark. Citrus notes in the middle with a lingering bitter finish. Alcohol is masked successfully but way too bitter for my tastes.
M: Pretty good mouth feel. Full bodied brew with ultra micro carbonation. Some minor sting on the backend from the alcohol level but not bad. Dry finish.
D: This one coats the tongue with grapefruity-woody-piny hops. Pairing with a good heavy beef dish, chili or heavy tomato italian suggested.
