I gave it a 6 (2005 Bigfoot). Tastes raw to me. I suspect I'll rate it much higher after more aging (perhaps a year or more).

I hate to say it but I hate BW till I tried Bigfoot. I was like wow this is good. The several i had just didnt seem balanced but I havent closed them off completely from trying new ones. I had to give it a 10 on the basis I actually liked it and drank it all. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/biggrin.gif)

This beer kicks A$S. Much better than the Rouge BW I just drank. I gave the Rouge a 4 and the Bigfoot an 8 on the Rouge post but I'm new to BW so I may be off a bit. I love the hops, all about the balance.

Balance isn't a word I'd use with Bigfoot, but I still enjoy it. Maybe you were drinking a 04 bigfoot.

I had a big night at the Brickskeller in DC (thanks for the tips dudes) and managed to fit a Bigfoot in. I don't know how I ended up with a 4X halo though.

When 05' Bigfoot first arrived i was sadly disappointed. I agree w/ Erik, tasted green and raw. But when Aeneas visited about a month ago, we sampled 3 BW's and the Bigfoot was one of them. I was pleasantly surprised the hop flavor had started to meld. Its getting better even as the year goes on. Cant wait to try another bottle in a few months.........I suppose American style BW's need even more aging than the tastier English versions.....

Not sure of the year but I know it tasted way more balanced than the Rogue I had. Plus I love hops.

I think I'm in love (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/inlove.gif)

I don't know how in the world I have made it to this point in my life without trying bigfoot. Tried a bottle of 2005 tonight for the first time and it is great. This thing has a great hop punch but the malt doesn't shy away one bit. Nicely balanced bw.

Bigfoot only gets better with each passing year. I have 7 years worth of unopened cases aging in my basement. Going back to 1999. I usually buy 2 cases of each year's vintage. One to drink, one to age. Good stuff!

I've got one bottle of '04 and a few bottles of '05 left. I think the wife and I will do a three year vertical tasting when the '06 comes out.

I think I'll start saving a few each year, as TF suggests (though I don't have room to store a case).

I do like this beer.

I can't believe y'all drink something called Bigfoot. He'll eat you whole.

Really? I have a case of the 2004 and 2005 and I preferred the 2005 in a side by side.

Overall though, this beer is the best beer for the buck out there.

I finally experienced Bigfoot on tap. After reading all the great reviews I have been on a hunt for it and feared that I missed my chance from the '06 batch...long and behold I found a bar with it on tap. No lies on this review...this brew is amazing. Super Hoppy with a nice malt finish...absolutely balanced. I am amazed that this was a 9% with the ease it went down. I cant wait to start collecting these over the years.

I had never experienced Bigfoot, until last night. Stopped at a store with a fairly decent selection, and he had two 6 packs of 2000 in the cooler...grabbed them both.

Delicious.
