Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale

Does anyone out there have the nutritional information, carbohydrates in particular, for Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale? I'm one of those Atkins' diet people. Thanks!
Considering the alcohol content of this beer is, I believe, around 9% the calorie level of this beer is quite high. Other then the alcohol level, which I am speculating based on it being a barley wine and not actually a beer, I have no idea of the nutritional value of this product.
I dont know if this would be a recommended product for people on a diet. I would recommend it for people looking for a quick buzz.
I age my bigfoot minimum of 1 year before opening. The description of this not being a beer is wrong.
It is a beer, and it is a barley wine.
Barley wine is the style of beer.
Not only for those looking for a quick buzz, as drinking EKU 28 is not only for those who want a "quick buzz"
I suppose that you look at drinking coffee as for people just looking for a "quick buzz" as well... Oh well.
"I would recommend it for people looking for a quick buzz"
Well, _I_ would recommend it for people looking for one of the most delicious beer styles ever devised (Bigfoot's not my fave example of the style...Mr. W is correct in aging it...but there are other wonderful brands). And beer it is; "barley wine" isn't wine. See another bigfoot discussion further down this same board.
If you want a quick buzz, I believe vodka works a lot more efficiently and inexpensively.
Given the high level of residual sugar-which is why it taste sweet, in addition to the bitteness-I would suspect its higher in carbs than most other beers.
