Cork pops with vigor. Pours a light golden caramel to settle in the goblet a gorgeously deep mahogany glow with a tint to cinnamon. Topped largely with a massively thick beige foam about two fingers high which stands for length. Eventually the crown slowly moves its way into a thick skim always present and tons of lacing caked on all over the glass.

Aroma is mild and semi dry of brittle caramel sweetness edged with airy woody/leafy hops tinted with orange peel. Warmth of ethonallic floralness builds as it sits.

Taste is thankfully bolder then the aroma by a bit with a heavy amber ale tone of crispy wood layered leafy hoppyness pushed with a bit of toasted grains and orangey bitterness. A bit of mapley sweetness and caramel malt perks in the middle keeping a nice center to its overall character. Slightly burnt toasted grains and wood taints the bitterness into a bolder Bigfoot-esque tone as it flirts into the finish with a bit more bite of dark citrus.

Nice, nearly full body with a very well-rounded smoothness all over the place. Puffy, malty, round, with a nice tug of textured hoppy carbonation that keeps a fluffy dryness floating about letting the hops dance about the malt girth with a light stepping stone.

A pretty solid Strong ale that seemingly fits SN quite well and would sit well in the family of SN goodies as the little brother to Bigfoot.
