    You should try places other than Perfect Pour.

    Snagged two bottles in CO but they were gone quickly out here when they hit stores about a month ago. I was just in Florida last weekend and bought two at a Whole Foods Liquor store though. Buy em when ya see em fuuuuur suuure.

    Just drank the BF 13' followed by the BA BF and damn the BA BF as so f'ing good. It was like beer candy. The hops faded just enough that I was able to really pull some great vanilla, coconut and oak flavor out.

    Too much hops not enough barrel.:(Giving the other bottle a year so the hops can fade and hopefully the barrel will come through more. Boltcutter was much better IMO.

    At the risk of posting something posted elsewhere... Our tour guide at the brewery today said that it was 2011 Bigfoot that was aged to make BA 2013 BF.

    Not missed completely (got to try at a friend's tasting), but would love to trade for a few bottles if available.

    I concur. I got a lot of barrel. Maybe because I had regular Bigfoot before I got more barrel than hops. But each palate is different.
