Caramel colored pour, decent sized white head. Lacing is prominent. This beer is a mess IMO. Overly resiny, barrel notes almost taste like the damn thing was aged in pine trees. The booze doesn’t help and the damn thing got worse as it warmed. Maybe a few YEARS in the cellar will help? Im not hopeful though. j12601 (10925) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pouring at the Night of the Barrels at Extreme Beer Fest. Pours a clear browned amber with a thin white head. Warm wood, whiskey, caramel. Big plums, earthy old hops. Lots of plum and prune, chocolate, warm and boozy. Very big, definitely a sipper. Long oxidization and plums with some wood bitterness on the finish. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

750 shared at Craft Ale House. Clear copper pour,, looking a lot like bourbon. Nose is huge and complex; with huge oaky whiskey notes, vanilla, plum, spirity heat. I could smell this one for hours. Tastes rich, complex, with big oaky and whiskey flavors up front, some mid-palate heat, vanilla, plum, hops, figgy fruit, and a smooth, powerful finish. This is one of the best beers I have quaffed. adnielsen (10602) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2013

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 Bottle - thanks Jeff! Reddish golden pour with a white head. Medium body. Whiskey is pronounced. Hop aroma as well. Solid. DuffMan (10270) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and others. The core character of the Bigfoot is not lost here, and the barrel adds lovely sweet toasty marshmallow, vanilla, and rumcake notes to the already chewy malt structure. The hops are here too, but much less evident. Really great stuff, just as I hoped! alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a clear deep reddish amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has caramel, fruit, oak, whiskey, vanilla, and quite a bit of resiny hops. The flavor is more of the same; the caramel malts and resiny hops compete for attention, oak character everywhere, vanilla and some fruits. It just seemed to need a bit more time for things to integrate better. marcus (10144) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 11, 2013
On tap at Jupiter Sour Sunday. Pours orange amber with a thin beige head and a slightly sour toffee aroma. There is a very bitter molasses flavor with a dry carbonated finish. This beer is very complex with notes of vanilla booze, raisins and candi sugar. phaleslu (10099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by a stranger at DLD- thank you, kind stranger, for reading my wants list! Pours a clear tea-amber color with a small off-white head. Man, the bourbon is big in this one. Alcohol burn in the nostrils and on the palate, with vanilla and caramel notes throughout. But the undeniably heavy hops of the Bigfoot shine through, too. Very cool. Medium-bodied, with a sticky, sweet, bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Excellent, though might do even better with some age on it.
