Bigfoot is a clear but dark amber with some red highlights and a huge tan head. Aroma is mostly barley with a bit of sweetness. Taste up front is barley without too much of a bite too it, although it does increase as you finish. Good smooth feel with only a light malt coating. There's not much complexity, maybe a hint of dark fruit sweetness but mostly just an alcohol taste. It's sticky on the lips but still pretty smooth.
This barleywine reminds me more of a strong ale. It has very light barleywine characteristics and not much in the way of complexity. It's fairly easy to drink for something so high in ABV but if I'm in the mood for a barleywine, I'll reach for something else.
