TEMP: Cellared @ approx 50 degrees
Pours a clear brown with a ruby overcast. Two-finger head of fluffy light tan foam. Retention is great. Lacing is big sticky clumps.
Bitter hops hit me first. Hints of citrus. Slight promise of caramel malts. Mild yeasty presence.
It almost, for a brief second, seemed like this was going to be a big, smooth maltbomb. Then the hops came in. The brief kiss of caramel is annihilated by the bitterness of the hops.
Slight hints of dark fruits, but they are covered in pine sap.
Bigfoot is just about the hoppiest barleywine that I know of.
Very appealing smooth and creamy body.
For me, this is way over hoppy, right now. I can't wait to taste it in two to three years, though.
