COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Bigfoot Barleywine is a craft beer legend. Each winter, this beast of a beer appears and wreaks havoc on unsuspecting palates with its intense bittersweet flavors. This year—in honor of the 30th Anniversary of this style-bending brew— we’re releasing a very special version of this cult classic: Aged in oak whiskey casks for nearly two years, this barrel-aged Bigfoot is incredibly complex. The assault of resinous hops has mellowed, and the influence of the wood has shifted focus toward the malt—with rich burnt-sugar flavors and notes of vanilla, toasted coconut, and raisins. Grab this elusive beast while you can, because it won’t be around for long.

750 shared at Craft Ale House. Clear copper pour,, looking a lot like bourbon. Nose is huge and complex; with huge oaky whiskey notes, vanilla, plum, spirity heat. I could smell this one for hours. Tastes rich, complex, with big oaky and whiskey flavors up front, some mid-palate heat, vanilla, plum, hops, figgy fruit, and a smooth, powerful finish. This is one of the best beers I have quaffed.
