Bottle from Glug, Newcastle. Pours amber with a cream head. Good pungent aroma, very fruity with lots of pine hops too. Very full flavoured with notes of pine, caramel, fruit cake and nice warming alcohol. Very good indeed.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
2014 vintage bottled on 11/29/13.
A bit hazy. Dark amber appearance with a small head that dissipates quite quickly. Aroma is of citrusy hops and herbs, as well as some malt sweetness. Is that vanilla I pick up too? Taste up front is reminiscent of bitter grapefruit with caramel, bread and malt. Medium bodied. Bitterness lingers quite a while and the finish is dry. Very complex. One of my favorite Sierra Nevada beers. Aging a few to see how they’ll change.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz stubby poured into tulip during #bottlecherwednesday at Beachwood Seal Beach. Aged a year or so. Reddish amber body with tan head that is crazy sticky and leaves a ton of lacing. Aroma is of pine, grapefruit, caramel, malt, and alcohol. Taste is strong earthy hops to begin then shifting to citrus followed by caramel and roasty malt sweetness. Alcohol esters give a fruity note as it warms the body. Full body, oily texture, low carbonation, warming and drying boozy finish.

Very high level. Full of excellent flavours and aromas, like a great french wine. I’m french and I know a lot of european beers, specialy Belgian beers. I consider Sierra Nevada as a very good brewery and this bigfoot as one of the best beers I’ve ever drunk.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is malt, dark fruit, standard barley wine. Appearance is light orange, with a creamy orange head. Taste is bitter, some fig, somewhat fruity, no booze. Mouthfeel is nice, soft carbonation, sticky but dry. Overall, a solid brew, much like any Sierra Nevada.

Probably one of my most perfect likings!!! Pours a deep amber with a small amount of carbonation. Love the aroma, a nice dark sweetness that I love. Taste is a strong rich earthy fruitiness like raisin and plum soaked in alcohol. The malts seem to hold the bitterness of the hops back until the last second where they come on strong leaving me wanting more!!!
