750 ml cork and cage bottle from GM Liquors. Nose is light bourbon and vanilla combined with hints of golden raisins and bubblegum. Clear rust red with a small beige head. Flavor is lightly bitter, bourbon, and lots of vanilla. Nice and smooth. BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2016
Draft into a snifter at Brouwer's. Brown color with ruby highlights and a khaki ring. Syrupy sweet and boozy aroma with a hint of wood and vanilla. Mellow flavor of vanilla, tobacco and molasses, with a hint of hop bitterness in the finish. Well done to make it drinkable and not over-the-top. No hint of the ABV at all.

Sampled at the Raleigh Rare and Vintage Festival 2013. Clearish brown amber pour with small offwhite head. Distinctly hoppy flavor with a massive amount of american hop bitterness. I was really surprised how much the hops stuck around after 2 years! It was verging on being almost too boozy. Some age should treat this quite nicely, but as it was, I didn’t really care for it.

Tap at rrbf. Thanks Aubrey! Nose is light bourbon, and wood, lots of toffee sweetness, pine, vanilla, dark fruits. Flavor is relatively sweet, vanilla, brown sugar, oak, booze, and light pine. A bit too much but a solid sipper. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2016

2014. 11.9% . clear red with medium sized, stable, cream colored head. dusty oak, vanilla, butterscotch aroma. flavors of caramel, butter, vanilla, barrel, peachy fruits, butterscotch. complex flavors. great medium finish with medium body. the usual fresh, sharp hops of ’regular bigfoot’ have mostly diminished already when the beer hits the market. it drinks great now and will be better later, though its hard to imagine this beer improving. this should be the hottest cellarable beer of the year! i only wish i saved some of those 30th anniversary beers from a few years ago.

750ml bottle 2/28/13 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in snifter-Pours a murky brown with a small off white head. Aroma of sugars, malt, whisky, caramel, and toffee. Taste of dried fruit, whisky, oak, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and some alcohol. This full bodied brew is well balanced and is down right tasty. Great brew.

Brown, small tan head.Big woody alcoholic nose.Very woody palate, far too boozy, oddly spicy. Not a fan !! mathieuc (3990) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Thanks to nate321 for this one! Pours a lightly veiled caramel looking with not much head or lacing. Nose is of buttery caramel and bourbon, sugary to the extreme. Slight hops and wood. Taste is of caramel and sweet but not cloying because it is balanced by a healthy (medium-high) dose of bitterness. Alcohol shows quite a bit and mouthfeel is sticky, a real barleywine. Really nice but not necessarily an improvement to the already excellent SN Bigfoot.
