4/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Appearance- sparkling reddish brown with 1 finger of off white yellowish head with coarse bubles. Light lacing
Aroma- dusty Carmel slight banana corn and bubble gum
Taste- Smoooothe! Long carmel and butterscotch. Buttery and nutty with a spicey cedarlike hop kick at the end.
Mouthfeel- fuller bodied slick and syrupy but not bad for the style. some alcohol warmth.
Overall- there is some sentiment to this beer, I first had it in college in 2001. I wandered into an acquaintance's dorm room, who had a late class on a friday night. All of our friends in the dorm had gone out to party without us! So he called in a favor to a friend with an ID and told him to buy a sixpack of beer that had the highest alcohol content in the store (priorities in college). His friend soon delivered some Bigfoot and the two of us split the six pack and then went out to find the rest of the group. 3 bigfoots a piece and we never missed a beat once we caught up to the rest of our friends who had been out partying most of the night! the 2013 version is much smoother than the 2001 version and brings back all the memories. A tasty beer and a welcome time machine!
