2011 Bigfoot poured into Snifter
Pours a dark ruby color with a nice 1 finger thick head that stays around and leaves some layered lacing.
the smell is fantastically hoppy with some fruit, citrus, some sweet malts
Taste is very much hoppy. Balanced well with the caramel malts, alcohol is present. Huge hop presence, pretty damn complex
Mouthfeel is pretty full with moderate carbonation
Drinkability is def a sipper. find this one very boozy. the 9.6% is very present.
Overall, this was my first Barleywine, but seems that this is one of the best of it's style. I enjoyed this beer for its bitterness, but would like to find out what one taste like after cellaring for at least a year. great brew
