4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice mahogany body with a brown head that had some retention and great lace. Aroma had a strong hop note upfront I could really detect the some of the notes from the Bigfoot. Nice grapefruit and pine hops paired up really well. Sweet caramel malts balanced it out fairly well. Hints of wood and vanilla rounded out the aroma. Flavor was initially sweet malts, great hop notes balanced it out and the oak and alcohol finished out the beer well. Nice amount of carbonation. Overall the Bigfoot seemed to stick out the most, but there was enough of the other beers to keep it interesting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Testad på Linköping beer expo. Sötsliskig, oljig doft. Smaken är söt, besk och lite blaskig på samma gång. Ganska spretig, obalanserad smak. Hade hellre sett att denna endast innehöll fatlagrad bigfoot..

Bottle for my WOB 2500, dec 8 2015. Nose is slightly sherry oxidation with a light boozy nose. Taste is lightly peppery with a light caramel note. Fairly smooth without much alcohol noted. Seems a bit thin and grassy but held up well.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"dark orange, almost red. big fluffy head. very aromatic...mostly a sh--load of hops, but some sweet malt and oak in there if you try really hard. i am pretty impressed with the anniversary lineup...they are among my favorite SN beers. big juicy beer, hoppy and bitter, floral, with a lasting aftertaste. Does taste a little like the pale, but trust me...just a little. This is a big boy. smoother than the initial onslaught of hops in the aroma would have you believe."
