On tap at Stuffed Sandwich, I tasted the '02, '03, and '05 Bigfeet.
They were all a rich deep brown color with slight haze. Aroma was mild caramel. Hop aroma subdued in these samples.
The '02 was a bit raisiny with a stiff almost harsh bitterness. The '03 had an intense caramel flavor and was also quite bitter and piney. The '05 was perfect. Caramel was toned down quite a bit. Hops were gloriously juicy. Great finish. Definitely the '05 was my favorite of the 3.
Overall: It's impressive how different the Bigfoot is in different years. All three were very high quality barleywines.
Serving type: on-tap
