It seems my first Bigfoot will be a fresh 2009. Grabbed a sixer from a shoddy little liquor store.
Pours a very nice copper on fire shade of burgundy. Big fat head of cream and bubbles. Crazy retention. Looks pretty frickin good people.
Smells like a delicious IPA. Moderately strong hop presence on top of something else. Something buried deep under that head.
Big bitter hop burn in the bite. Yep. Good flavor but seems rather one dimensional at this point. Time for an aging experiment.
Medium to full body, smooth. Very likable. I think I'll try to cellar one of these. But 'twas not to be - all six have gone the way of Burgie.
Overall: big, good, want more
Serving type: bottle
