I'm reviewing a 2008 Bigfoot that was had on tap a few days ago.
A - Pours a clear amber brown color with a half finger of toffee colored head and mild to no carbonation.
S - Smells of raisins, fig, butter toffee, and mild amounts of caramel.
T - The tongue is immediately greeted with bittersweet flavor of chocolate, figs, dates, brown sugar, and mild amounts of toffee. The hop bitterness stays underneath throughout the sip. Also is a little fruity and a little earthy. The alcohol produces a moderate amount of warming in the back of the throat as well.
M - Mild prickliness, finishes dry, and leaves a lingering sticky bittersweetness.
D - One of the hoppiest barleys I've had and also one of the best beer Sierra brews. Absolutely enjoyed this glass full.
