Sierra Nevada 2010 Bigfoot Barleywine Ale
I picked up a bottle of Sierra Nevada 2010 Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale from Ron's Original Bar & Grille in West Chester. The beer pours a copper color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of caramel and light fresh hops. The taste is fresh hops on the front end and has a light citrus lemon taste followed with some caramel accents. There are some flower tastes on the finish. The alcohol content is 9.6% ABV. I really enjoyed the Bigfoot. It may be a little hoppier than most barleywines, but it was a great variation on the style and extremely complex.
