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.
