A - Bigfoot just looks beautiful when you pour it out. A nice deep deep ruby red syrupy liquid sloshes into the glass. An off-white head with a reddish tint forms slowly and holds at about one finger. However, the head isn't long lasting and there's little lacing.
S - The smells are perhaps the best part, well at least there are for me. It's a nice balance of malts and hops with sweetness, caramel, grapes, citrusy fruits all blending together.
T - Many of the same scents I smelt were also present in the taste. As it should be, that wine flavor is quite strong. The alcohol is a little much for me, but that's to be expected from the style.
M - Full. The flavors roll around the tongue and linger a good long while afterward.
D - If you like barleywines, you should really like this one. If that's the case, you'll find this absolutely drinkable.

Poured into a balloon glass.
Look: Dark rusty amber with more burnt orange when held up to light. A tan colored head dissipates to a wispy film while a decent amount of foamy lacing stays on the glass.
Aroma: Lots of oaky wood and piney hops with an undertone of syrupy malts.
Taste: Thick, syrupy sweet malts are immediately evident. This is followed up by a very bitter, pine and spruce hop bill with good grapefruit rind citrus in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Pretty thick, heavy, and slightly sticky.
Overall: Quality flavors and aromas all the way around. Definitely rich and worth sipping for a while.
