Bigfoot Ale is an award-winning example of the traditional barleywine ale style. It boasts a dense, fruity bouquet; an extremely rich, intense palate; and a deep, reddish-brown color. This ale is superbly balanced between an almost overpowering maltiness and a wonderfully bittersweet hoppiness.

Like its namesake, this is a behemoth of a beer, but it's balanced and appropriately intense for the style. Bold, assertive scents of citrusy and piny hops lead the bouquet, supported by notes of roasted grain, caramel malt, toasted brown bread and cocoa nib. The palate showcases the rich, malty core at first sip, but soon after transitions into hop-fueled flavors of sticky citrus oil and pine resin that carry on long into the finish. The texture is smooth and full, with ample carbonation to keep the mouthfeel from feeling too heavy or flat. While it's certainly enjoyable now, it's also an extremely cellar-worthy selection, as it will mature beautifully for many years to come.
