Wow. My first reaction - wow.

I was letting the beer warm up to get a better feel for the aroma, but couldn't wait to have a taste. Wow.

According to the label, this beer sits at the intersection of Bigfoot, Sierra Nevada's barley wine, Celebration and Pale Ale. I expected a potent mix of hops and alcohol, strong and bitter, and it delivers.

The aroma is full of phenols and higher alcohols - sweet and strong. The hops have a tough time getting heard with all the competing flavors in this beer.

It pours copper in color, with a thick creamy head and lots of lacing, from all the malt to fuel this high powered beer.

This beer is a mouthful - malty and sweet, with its barley wine roots dominating from the start. Apricot, caramel and full bodied maltiness dominate out of the gate. Its rich and full-bodied throughout, with hop bitterness asserting itself throughout. The hops are full of citrus and spice, with pine and grapefruit notes. It finishes sweet and bitter - lingering long on the palate.

This is a hell of a beer - rich, decadent, over the top. I love when great brewers stretch their wings. This is the result, great stuff.

Episode quality prevailing on such places is also
not up towards the mark. Peer-to-peer Expanding software packages are individual from
the progressive catalog that permits the sharing of utilization separating
the companions by forcing them the comparable prominence, such
that an user is going to be acting as host together with the alternative peers will likely be downloading, yet it's not resolute the one lone user should host the data, each together with every companion within the system of
connections. On the server you will get just what you
need up and running and nothing you don't.
