Thanks to Jeff for cracking this one open and sharing, saved me from having to search the city for it. Pours a murky, deep-amber color, nearly copper and almost on the verge of being called raw sienna. The light-tan head settles rather quickly and leaves very spotting lacing on the edges of my glass.

Light whiskey and bourbon on the nose - more standout-ish on its own, rather than integrated into the rest of the aromas. Slight wood and oak with some sweet plums, crispy burnt vanilla, and brown sugar. It's hard to remember how similar this is to the regular Bigfoot, but I believe this one packs a more powerful punch. Of course, that's to be expected, given the whiskey barrel aging and all.

The taste is full of brown sugar and an underlying bourbon heat that starts off on the smaller side, but crescendos throughout the sip and actually becomes quite hot. Sweet figs and dates which tasted like they were soaked in a bourbon bath for years. The malt provides a huge caramel and molasses backbone which becomes washed out a bit by the booze and fruits.

This one is also quite hoppy, and if I recall correctly, the original Bigfoot had a nice hop profile to it as well. They seem even a bit stronger, here. Ashy and leafy, providing a small amount of bitterness to the aftertaste, which is largely dominated by boozy dark fruits and wet wood. Thick body all around with a slick and sticky mouth feel, medium carbonation.

A nice addition to regular Bigfoot, although the whiskey barrel aging made this one quite hot and somewhat difficult to easily drink. Hopefully this one will become more readily available, because I'd like to pick up a few more and age them to see if it blunts the heat a little. Thanks again to Jeff for this one.

Picked up a 750 ml bottle yesterday from Total WIne Arrowhead for $14.99. Been looking for it on line which they tend not to do with their limited releases.

Beer poured reddish brown with a nice head on the initial pour that dissapated pretty quick.

Nose is light whiskey and hints of sweetness.

Taste is slightly sweet, whiskey is light and blended nicely, oaken vanilla notes, caramel malt backbone is nice and lends a strong backbone. Hops finish is surprisingly still there, just not as prevelant as a fresh Bigfoot.

Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, smooth, with a bit of carbonation lingering.

Overall definitely a blast to try. I love Bigfoot and seek it out each year. This is definitely a treat to get my hands on a bottle. Not sure how this would age but may give it a whirl if i can score another bottle!

Had about 6 oz. of this last night tasting with friends.

Appearance: Light mahogany. A little darker than I imagined.

Smell: This beer smells super boozy. Smells much more boozy than it really is. I took this as a sign of great aging and balance.

Taste: Unbelievably balanced contrary to the strong whiskey smell. Smooth oak, matured barley-wine, balanced with a perfect amount of whiskey flavor. Everyone in the room was blown away after the first sip.

Mouthfeel: not syrupy at all, and I dig the carbonation with these. Everything seems to fit.

Overall: I prefer this beer to KBS, and I love Breakfast stout. This beer is not a novelty, it is balanced to perfection and the whole concept was executed perfectly. Keep in mind I've only had 5-10 whiskey barrel aged beers, but I've had my fair share of barley-wines, including aged bigfoots. This beer is on a very high level.

750ml bottle served in a snifter.

L - clouded reddish/amber color with a off-white head that thinned to a ring.

S - the whiskey makes itself known but the aroma of Bigfoot is lurking in the background.

T - WOW, Bigfoot is a delicious beer to begin with and SN takes it up a notch with the whiskey barrel aging. Everything malty and hop wise that Bigfoot is with the taste of whiskey blended in perfectly.

F - medium/full bodied with a smooth feel.

O - the abv never makes itself known but someone put whiskey in my Bigfoot and I like it!

750Ml poured into a snifter

A- Pours very murky dark amber brown. A small head of an off tan color. Intense alcohol legs.

S- Big whiskey notes. A lot of sour mash. A tiny touch of alcohol, A slight spiciness. A big whiskey forward smelling brew.

T- The same big signature bitterness up front you would expect from Bigfoot. A robust hop profile of spiciness and herbal notes. A slight onion and grassness from the hops. A big whiskey profile to this beer. There is a ton of sour mash in this beer. There is also a dry prickle and sharp wood flavor from the barrels. The malts are subtle but back up the whiskey nicely. This is a bitter and dry tongue tingler.

M- Thick and heavy, this whiskey bomb leaves your mouth dry and has a sharp bite from the wood. A bitter Barleywine.

O- This is a solid BA Barleywine, I was hoping for better but it just doesn't seem like whiskey and Bigfoot are a perfect combo. The beer is well made and well blended. I think on slight downfall is the quality of whiskey. While the whiskey is prominent in this beer, It's no Pappy. Regardless, It is a good beer that just didn't quite pan out perfectly.

corked and caged bottle to the dome...in a sierra nevada balloon glass. picked this up locally...gotta say one of the harder beers to track down of late.

a - brew poured a semi transparent ruby with a thin off beige head of bubbles that hung out for a short time leaving a thin skin of bubbles on the surface.

s - wow. really nice. bigfoot is there, with a big glazing of whiskey. it is a perfect match. lots of wood and boozy caramel with the hoppy goodness of bigfoot's big hop and malt bill beneath. toffee, vanilla, caramel...whiskey.

t - zippity doo da...VERY nice. sort of what one would expect, exactly as advertised...it is bigfoot in a whiskey barrel. much like the nose, toffee, caramel with a strong glazing of whiskey over everything. definitely boozy, but palatable. burnt sugar and toasted coconut.

m - fairly boozy, leaves a tingle in my mouth. chewy.

o - overall, as advertised. bigfoot in a whiskey barrel. it is a winner. paint me impressed!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: On tap at the Prohibition Pig after a long day. Served in a 12 oz. tulip glass slightly chilled.

Appearance: Pours a creamy beige head with some nice retention. The lacing holds well to the glass. Medium to dark amber in color with a touch of haze.

Aroma: The whiskey from the barrels is very upfront and blends surprisingly well with the base beer. The base contributes some caramel, sherry and a touch of piney hops. The hops are definitely far more subdued than in fresh Bigfoot.

Taste: Really nice blend of the barrel and the base beer. Caramel, vanilla, whiskey, and a touch of peat all hit upfront with a bit of fused alcohol. The hops are definitely faded and don't dominate nearly as much as they do in fresh Bigfoot. They do lend a nice bitterness that offsets some of the other sweet flavors and adds some nice complexity. Drinks really smoothly.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, with nice carbonation. A big beer.

Overall, I really thought that the barrel did wonders to this beer and really added some nice new dimensions to the base beer. I got the really nice background sherry and medicinal tones of 2-3 year old Bigfoot along with really nice barrel character. It didn't feel muddled as I thought it might with the combination of the hops and the barrel. Well done. I will be looking to get a bottle or two to see how this evolves over time.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: deep amber brown with ruby highlights, tan two-finger head of dense foam; didn't really lace my tulip glass - they subsided quickly

S: sweet malty aromas and whiskey, floral and earthy hops and yeasts.

T: fantastic tasting - rich, rugged malt flavors, sweeter up front than on the finish. I thought of bitter toffee/burnt sugar and old coffee. Some hints of dried dark fruit, vanilla, and musky earth and wood; nicely bitter and savory. Whiskey notes hover around the palate. Bittersweet and resinous...

M: great chew, medium density, moderate carbonation, more coating than tingling, slight tackiness

O: a great barleywine - complex and hearty, strong and only semi-sweet - sweeter than the normal Bigfoot, but not overly sweet; the bitter hops leaft a great aftertaste between sips. Reminded me of American and English strong ales/old ales. Definitely something to buy again if spotted.

P: Dark copper brown body with a generous crown of creamy cappuccino silk.

S: Huge whisky aroma, toasted coconut, vanilla extract, dark fruits and burnt sugar.

T/M: The barrel aging mellows out the harsh earthy hops and creates a rich malted barley concoction. Burnt sugar, toasted coconut and vanilla encompass my mouth and create a creamy velvet mouthfeel. Booze is present but nicely incorporated given the high ABV.

O: Nice tasty barley wine. I really prefer the original due to the lack of hops goodness but it was a special treat to have for sure. Cheers!

This beer capped off a vertical tasting of Bigfoot from 2007 to 2013. By this point, we were pretty much palate-fatigued, but this beer really made everyone sit up and take notice. The aroma is immediately striking, with its strong whiskey notes. Two years in the barrel really imparted a strong character. Same goes for the taste. It’s Bigfoot, but wrapped up in whiskey barrel goodness. Never too much of the barrel though. Really, the balance is exceptional in how they managed to deliver the best of both worlds. The oaky vanilla also nicely plays with the flavors. Barrel Aged Bigfoot was the star of the show as we all thought it was the most enjoyable beer of the bunch. I feel lucky to have tried this special release.

750mL bottle from Total Wine (Kennesaw, GA). 15.99. Bottled 01/13. Served in an Ommegang tulip.

Pours deep garnet with one and a half finger off white head. Plenty of patchy lacing.

Smells of piney hips, whiskey and toffee.

The hops and whiskey battle for dominance. Pine, whiskey, citrus rind, toffee, oak, burnt caramel and booze infused dark fruits.

Medium full, oily feel with a good bit of carbonation. Long bitter, boozey aftertaste.

A nice new take on Bigfoot. The whiskey compliments as supposed to competes. It's definately worth a try if you can land a bottle.

A: Dark copper color with a 2 finger head. Great lacing that sticks on the glass throughout the entire drink. The foamy lacing sticks around the brew for the whole drink. Nice and fluffy.

S: Whhhiskey! Hints of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, dark fruits, and butter. Good.

T: More whiskey. Lots of malt. Caramel - more than the nose suggests. Some oak. Finishes with some hop bitterness.

M: Full body and very creamy. Low carbonation.

O: Couldn't believe when my dad showed up at my doorstep in Ohio this morning and told me he came across a bottle of this in Indiana. I truly owe him, as this one was worth the hype. Thanks Pops!! Great balance of flavor, smell, and body.

Maybe I shouldn't have drank this two hours before the U-M vs Indianer game,whoo it knocked me back a little.Poured into an oversized wine glass a deep burgundy with a nice tight one finger white head atop,great rich clarity.Big hop resins mixed with toasted oak in the nose,as it warms whiskey gets bigger and bigger.The whiskey barrel is really big on the palate but the powerful hops acts as a counter balance wich doesn't happen much with barrel aged beers,vanilla and dark fruit round out the flavor profile.This is a deeply consentrated flavorful beer,the hops are HUGE for something that has sat for a year,but the aging makes it complex to the hilt.Thanks to Roger at Bestway for hookin me up this,it was a pleasure to drink...to say the least.

I cannot simply use the "Had" feature for this one. I personally find this beer far different than several reviews and figured I'd put forth a voice with which some others may agree.

Pours a clear brownish red with a khaki head and is nice looking.

Nose is a juxtaposition of fresh "IPA pineapple" hops and malt and burnt sugar. Neither is proper for style - both "mixed together" makes for one of the really few terribly unbalanced noses I've smelled. The hops character is great; the malt/carmel character is great - they do not marry well.

Mouthfeel is creamy, rich and nicely carbonated but relatively meaningless when fighting with the nose, flavor profile and finish.

Flavors are citrus/pine hops overlapping and fighting with burnt-sugar/carmel and malty tones. There is no one following the other; there is no "over tone" or "undertone." These are just two conflicting, unbalanced, disjointed flavor profiles that make for a conflicting and confusing drink. There is a character of "carbonated whiskey," . .strong whiskey, that is pervasive and not appealing. There is such an assertive alcohol presence that some of the sweetness in the nose is clearly the alcohol and the actual taste of the whiskey/alcohol seems much more than 12.2% abv. (Not that 12.2% is low....it just tastes like its about 80 proof! i.e. 40% abv!)

The finish follows the flavor profile - same comments - very confusing.

This one is just not for me. JMO

Bigfoot aged in whiskey barrels

A: Clear amber, with a decent off-white head

S: Amazing... whiskey (Jack Daniels comes to mind but in the best way possible), oak, toffee, caramel, dark fruit, citrus, mint, with an underlying barleywine aroma that brings it all together.

T: Starts off with whiskey and toffee, then transitions into a barleywine taste with lots of oak and dark fruits, finishes with more of a bitterness than I was expecting, though it is not at all unpleasent. It has a nice stickiness about it that allows the flavors to linger for a bit and it only gets better with every sip.

M: Decent, though the carbonation is a bit much for this beer in my opinion.

D: Great, I had to keep reminding myself that this was 12% ABV

Overall this beer was amazing, everything I had hoped it could be, definitely gonna try to seek out more of this to see how it is with some more age on it.

750mL bottle, bottle states "Aged in oak whiskey casks for over a year." Dark amber in color, with a vigorous pour yielding a 1-finger head that dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. Surprisingly muted aroma - light woody characteristics, and a hint of fusel alcohol. Flavor is overwhelmingly barrel and booze-dominated; tons of wood and alcoholic heat with sweet malt flavors only making a cursory appearance. No hop flavor to speak of. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy, though there is very little carbonation.

Bottom line: if you like booze-bombs, open one of these ASAP. Otherwise, I'd suggest sitting on this for a while before opening. Definitely has potential.

Thanks to AndresR for sharing this one at jmgrub's tasting.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, toffee, whiskey, and wood. Taste is much the same with a hoppy finish and an alcohol kick. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a great smell and a hoppy flavor I wasn't quite expecting from a barrel aged beer.

Hoping i am in the right place for this beer as it it appears i am the first to review the newly released 750 bottled version. A slow hiss as i pull the cork, this brew pours a brilliant amber ruby hue with a beige finger of creamy foam - stunning looking. The nose is a beauty as well, bourbon barrel booze esters, caramel, nougat, vanillin. Also bright sugar plums and sticky toffee along with dates and booze soaked figs. Very complex on the nose with a lot of booze as well. The taste is not quite to the level of the nose with the alcohol hiding up some more of the noses nuanced characteristics. Brings oloroso sherry, rye whiskey as well as irish whiskey, somehwhat grainy and drying. The finish is somewhat tannic and very boozy, cannot imagine how amazing this will be in two years after having time to mellow and all the flavors to integrate.

Meadhall in Cambridge for 12 Brewers of Christmas on 12/19/12.

A: Amber-brown with a decent sized off-white head that fades quickly. A bit of lace and retention. As it should look.

S: Crazy amount of bourbon & whiskey, booze, butter, butterscotch, brandy, sour, apple, wood, earth, dark fruit, brown sugar. So complex. I could probably add more but I need a sip.

T: Everything a BA American BW should have. The sweet booze and wood are there as are a great hop presence and bitterness to balance the sweetness. Great barrel presence but also plenty of roasted sweet malt. Each sip gets better. The last big swig was perfect. Tons of barrel and malt with the right touch of hops.

M: Massive flavor, smooth as hell, and dry like it should be.

O: I came to this event specifically for this beer (and to donate $ to Toys for Tots). It was totally worth it and this beer surpassed my expectations which were already high. A very special beer. Talked to the local SN rep who said this is the beer that is going into bottles in early 2013. Went into barrels in 2010. Specifically Stranahan, Jim Beam, and Heaven Hill. Supposedly a mistake but they went with it for the 30th Anniversary of Bigfoot this year. Amazing stuff.

12 ounce bottle into dog faced mug (2009)

A: Decent head over a ruby body.bits of lacing on the tip up.

S: Almost reminds me of a stone brew with serious hops aromas going on, but under that you get dark dried fruit smells and caramel bourbon.

T: Like Arrogant Bastard kinda not really like the other barley wines I have had but a really good beer nonetheless. Hoppy-caramelly sweetness just for a split second that goes straight to bitter hoppiness. Then these two meld pretty good and it ends with ultra dry hop juice finish.. this one is hoppy the whole way through.

M: very nice

D: Strong, but strong is good. If you wanna go to a kegger and dont wanna drink shit beer but still be on the same wavelength as the other folks. A sixer of this will suffice. You'll be wankered without the bonging or beer games... drink up! I actually moved back to my small home town and this is the best beer they have to offer at the LQ.

Outstanding for the style. Pours a slightly cloudy brownish-red with a small layer of foam with a complex malty aroma with hints of hops as well. Tastes rather astringent with lots of fresh hops and a nice bitter finish. Strong with good carbonation, great body. Hearty and drinkable, great for sippin.

Shocked to see 'Aged Bigfoot' on the tap list at the Beer Engine in cleveland. 5 bucks a snifter. A steal if you ask me.

Talking to the bartender, turns out this 2 year old is barrel aged.
Being a monstrous Bigfoot fan, and especially aged bigfoot, I
obviously could not resist. (Of all nights, I was wearing a bigfoot tee shirt, i was virtually obligated)

The barrel comes off very strong. The beer is incredibly smooth, which has been my experience with older vintage bigfoots. Especially for the alcohol, major smooth here.

The barrel seemed to overpower the beer a bit, to me, and obviously when you're talking barleywine, thats not a minor thing.

Overall the beer was very good, would definitely drink it again, it just was a hair off of what I would have really liked in this beer.

To me, and I love huge, huge flavorful beers, the barrel just needed to be turned down a notch so this exceptional brew gets to show itself off a bit more.

Sampled last night at Sheffields with EehaiCJ.

Small snifter, around 8-10oz. pour. Dark crimson highlights, with a compact head of light tan foam.

Aroma is big on the bourbon. Plenty of vanilla, tobacco, and mild whiskey vapors when swirled. It lasts for the half-hour duration of the tiny globular glass. Some sprucey hops squeeze through underneath, reminding me of the original Bigfoot character.

Big boozy whiskey dominates, plenty of vanilla bean, maple syrup, caramel toffee, and peppery alcohol at the end, with a lingering hop bite. It feels viscous and syrupy a little, but with some carbonation. This was very enjoyable, but the high ABV put the brakes on another one. Very potent in small doses.

2013 bottle: whiffs of coconut, big brown sugar and caramel, wet wood, lingering bitterness. Lots of dry oak, traces of dry piney hops from the base beer.

The Sierra Nevada Brewery is an amazing place to sample beers. They always have ones that you have never seen in the store or have never heard of. Last night I had wood barrel aged bigfoot. It was aged in a whiskey barrel so it ended up being 12.5% and it had a nice taste of whiskey at the end.

On-tap at the Brewkettle, Strongsville, OH 3/11/07

Listed as "Sierra Nevada Bourbon Bigfoot". Listed at 11% ABV on the board, but I assume that this is the same beer.


A: Pours a reddish-brown with a dense creamy head. Lots of lacing.

S: Fruity and malty with a noticable bourbon presence.

T: Big flavor. The same old familiar hoppy Bigfoot taste but with a strong taste the evolves from potent bourbon to a soft and complex vanilla flavor as your palate adjusts.

M: Big, thick, and silky smooth with light carbonation.

D: There are many beers that don't do well with bourbon aging. This isn't one of them. If you like Bigfoot, then you should buy copius amounts of this if given the chance.
