The famed Bigfoot is Sierra Nevada’s legendary Barleywine and while I have had several over the years, I have yet to give it a proper review. The review is based on a fresh 2014 bottle, which is generally how I have had this in the past. I like the big hops so I usually can’t hang on to these for very long. The Bigfoot poured a deep ruby red with a significant head a good retention. This was a great looking beer. The aroma was very sweet and hoppy with citrus hops dominating into a sweet and slightly boozy tones. The taste was huge, with more bitter resinous hops on a bed of bittersweet malt that finishes with more pine hop notes. The bitter pine stays on your palate and lingers between sips of this mammoth brew. There is a slight alcohol finish that is hidden well underneath all the bitter hops and malt but definitely not dominant. I am sure this beer would age quite well as it would smooth out the edges a bit. Fresh the Bigfoot is dangerously drinkable and a thick,chewy, hoppy brew.
