2013 - Bigfoot Ale
A - It pours a slightly clearer barleywine colored ale. Very pretty, by looking at it, you wouldn't think it was as high an alcohol content as it is.
S - The smell is a little bit boozy and hoppy. Couldn't smell as many of the flavors separately as I could when tasting.
T - First taste for me was pretty sweet with caramel notes. Became more complex the longer it was out and also got slightly more boozy. However, the alcohol is hidden quite nicely for a barleywine. Possibly some chocolate or hazelnut notes came through in the remains of the beer. First time ever having a bigfoot, must say I truly enjoyed it. Reminded me of a 3/4 barleywine and 1/4 red ale.
M - The mouthfeel was extremely smooth for the amount of carbonation in it. Didn't overcoat the mouth as some barleywine's have done to me in the past.
O - I must say that this beer is one that you must buy if you are new to craft brew within the last year. I've had several barleywine's and this one was as smooth as any. Personally one of my favorite beers that I've had in the past few months, which is surprising given Sierra Nevada's proWill be going back out to buy a few more 4 packs, some to drink and more to cellar!
