1998 Vintage thrown in as an extra in a trade with brewandbbq
A: Deep deep brown, almost black with the thinnest white bullbles just around the edges of the glass
S: Por wine and figs with hefty dose of maple syrup. A musty sweetness with some grape jelly and rasins.
T: The first thing that hit me was the hoppiness of the beer. It still felt pretty hoppy, extremely so for a 10 year old beer. Taste like a tawny port with a nice maple syrup rasiny taste. Big malt kick. That fades right to a big hop spiciness and alcohol and a long finish of warmth and bitterness.
M: mouthfeel wasn;t as syrupy and heavy as I expected. Still a good bit of carbonation. Though it wasn't light feeling by any means.
Ovr: First of all, big thanks to brewandbbq for a 10 year old bigfoot as an extra in a trade. It was ag reat great beer. I got the farmiliar fig/port taste of a good aged barly wine, but the amount of hop bite still left in this was unbeliveable. There are plenty of fresh IPA's that don't pack that punch
