Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine Style AleSierra Nevada Brewing Company Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale (9.6% alcohol by volume) pours brilliant reddish amber with a finely bubbled light tan foam cap with moderate retention. The cap produces good lace. the aromas are rich malt over alcohol and hops.Big malt leads the flavor with a hint of sweetness backed by alcohol that quickly leads to a bold, hoppy finish.Bigfoot has an extraordinarily creamy chewy body. The alcohol is pleasantly warming and not hot or harsh. The malt, hops and alcohol are all big but surprisingly well balanced. 
I rate this outstanding beer 99.
