I let this one warm for a few minutes after taking it from the fridge.

Bigfoot poured a dark dark red. To the point it was almost brown. 1/2" head that faded quickly to a nice creamy bubbly top coat. When held to the light Bigfoot is a bright ruby. Looks very good.

The smell is really appetizing. It begins with a good dose of sweet malts. I can even smell dark cherry. This is followed by a strong hop presence. My mouth waters when breathing this in.

Starts of with a punch of hops followed quickly by sweet malt. A good strong bitterness throughout. Also a minimal alcohol bite thoughout. Piney oily hops hit at the end. Leaves with a lasting bitterness and a warm throat from the alcohol. I'm getting citrus as well, unsweetened grapefruit. It's like it hops around with every sip.

Mouthfeel is good. Medium bodied with a nice carbonation tingle. Coats your throat but nothing to thick. Can feel the alcohol as it goes down. Actually pretty nice.

The drinkability is good for such a powerful ale. At 9.6% this stuff goes down pretty easy. It's more of a sipper but I could sip on a few of these in a night and be perfectly happy.
