Sierra Nevada
Bigfoot, 2013
Barley Wine style Ale

Poured from a refrigerated brown glass bottle to an American pint glass. Dark bronze color with a hint of garnet. Thin off white head. Light lacing.

Smells big, hopped and a little boozy.

Tastes a little boozy too. Not full on rubbing alcohol flavor, but boozy none the less. It kind of lingers too. The bottle says 9.6% ABV. I guess a good way to say is I taste 2% of that alcohol over a normal beer. Aside form that, it's hoppy and malty in almost equal amounts. The hops hit first.

Feels thicker than regular beer, which is to be expected.

Overall, it's a good barley wine. Its got big flavor. I think I'll make mine a little less hopped though.

I've always been a big fan of the Boulevard Harvest Dance Wheat Wine but, I'm about halfway through a Chicken Killer. This is so good... hehehe

Sucuba is a must try from FW. Best barleywine I've ever tasted.

I haven't had their Double DBA and of course Parabola is a stellar stout.

If you like sucaba you will like Double DBA. Big, boozy, and smooth. I was just at the brewer 3 weeks ago and had Sucaba, Double DBA an their Anniversary ale. All amazing.

I'm a big fan of Old Foghorn.

But my favorite bottle was a 1998 Bigfoot I had at a brew club member's house. That was phenomenal.
