Bottle share at the WWWW beer tasting at iphonephan’s. Medium brown with lite tan head. Brown sugar, caramel, vanilla, oak, hint of booze. Good. WhiskyBraj (13) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2015
My god, bigfoot is good, but the barrel aged is next level. The oak influence brings down some of the cloying sweetness. Gentle roastiness and toffee balance this beast out. Great. pineypower (3347) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Pours out a decent darker amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of burnt sugar, caramel, oak, mild dried fruit, some vanilla, light alcohol. Taste is solid, oak, burnt sugary caramel, light earthy wood, a mild punch of bitterness. Alcohol is there but not over the top Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle. Clear dark amber pour. Aroma of vanilla, licorice, caramel, bourbon, alcohol, some spices and leather
Flavor is quite alcoholic, spicy, sweet, bourbon. Nice balance, a bit alcoholic. Hair6a11 (1481) - Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Bottle; Well - Here goes. Pour is a mahogany wonderland - with a nice, fine bubbled khaki head into this glass - it does retain well , with light spotting presence as well. The nose is feint alcohol, toffee, spices, moving to caramel and brown sugars, I suppose. The assault of resinous hops has mellowed as stated, at least to a point. There is a bittering note initial , moving to barrel presence - theres a bit of vanilla here - it moves on to heavy malted notes (caramel, brown sugars, with a touch of toffee), - there is a touch of dark fruit, with some booze, and a bit of whisky reveals itself near the finish line. It’s as expected. a nice attempt - but realistically , the base beer, while a classic - just doesn’t bring that much to the table nowadays.

750ml bottle if 2015 release. Pours a reddy brown color with a bit of head. Strong whiskey flavor that overpowers a little even after some time to breathe.

Ruby red pour with a single finger head. Hard to see through. Aroma of flowers. Really dry. Taste is full of toffee, caramel and some dankness in the finish. Lots of lace. A little oak, but mostly caramel & toffee. blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2015
2015 Thanksgiving, murky orange color with thin foam, almond buttery aroma, touch of butter, malty , creamy, oak wood, pine, smooth finish kaser (6360) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Carmel colored pour from 22oz bottle in St. Louis. Butterscotch and sweet. Heavy whisky flavor. A massive beer to put it lightly ebone1988 (2075) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Aroma is woody, caramel malt, toffee, bourbon, complex. Appearance is burnt orange, off white head. Taste is barrel, woody, booze, a bit of caramel and toffee, bitter, decent. Mouthfeel is medium body and carbonation. Overall, I think this one with age would work better but for now I’ll stick to original Bigfoot.
