Sierra Nevada’s 2011 Bigfoot Barleywine. A 3 out of 4. Great barleywine. Nice balance between the bitterness and the overly sweet malt presence. A little bit of spicy and caramel nuance comes out of the malt, but not too much. Very good six-pack, and while it isn’t exceptional, it is definitely worth trying. Beautiful color too. Along with Hoptimum, this is probably one of my favorites to come out of Sierra Nevada.
