Sample at a cool-ass bottle share. Pours a hazy auburn color with a quickly forming khaki head that settles to a ring and leaves some touches of lace. Nose involves lots of hops, pine and mint coming forward, along with plenty of oak. Pretty sweet, and also quite bitter. Bigger body, oily, syrupy, with a drying oaky finish. Pretty cool brew, though not necessarily a huge improvement over the original. This was a fresh bottle from this year, so age I imagine would do wonders. Still, cool to try what was a really hoppy barrel aged beer.

Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear medium brown burgundy color with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is lots of vanilla, coconut, slight whisky, with a definite bigfoot background. Flavor is sweet, vanilla, heavy malts. Very creamy texture with a lingering vanilla and coconut. Very tasty beer. Way better than the base in my opinion.

Bottle. Dark ruby/copper with little head. Aroma is dark fruit and vanilla. Taste follows and adds some toffee and hop bitterness. Rich sticky mouthfeel. Excellent.

Not a whole lot of bba flavor, very disappointing. Not a lot of complexity, really sucks since the bottle was $20.99 (WF Bowery), will not purchase again.

750 mL bottle. Pours a crimson amber with a very off-white head. Strong but smooth bourbon brown sugar aroma with some caramel and hops. Bourbon, brown sugar, caramel flavors, oak, some bitterness with occasionally citrusy hops. Quite good.

GABF 2006. Much smoother than I was expecting. Not a huge hop profile like the regular Bigfoot. Nonetheless, a great beer. Due to it’s mellow flavor, I feel this was probably an older Bigfoot vintage, but I’m not sure how old. Hope they bottle this stuff so I can try some more. Good stuff.

On tap at the 10th Annual San Diego Strong Ale Festival: Pours a transparent copper orange with a well-lacing frothy white head. Sweet caramel, fresh hops, and bourbon oaky aroma. Starts sweet and viscous revealing lots of oaky complexity and bittering grapefruity hop flavor. A nice tweak on a good beer that hides its alcohol well despite being 12.3%.
