Like my fellow reviewer I had problems with the cork. It came out in 2 pieces and was very wet. I had bottle 399/999.

Poured in my Unibroue snifter glass. Hazy brown with a slight red tint with a 1/4" tan head that quickly dissipates. Small bubbles slowly rising through the thick liquid.
Has a sweet smell at the beginning with that unmistakable bourbon aged scent. You can also pick out honey, nutmeg, cinnamon and a bit of dried fruit.

It tasted sweet but not as much as I thought it would. The Bourbon smoothness gets you right away but quickly takes a back to the subtle spices of traditional winter warmers. Gives a off a warm feeling even though it was served at about 40 degrees. I have to say I am very impressed with this beer. It’s has a bit of sweetness but not too much. The high alcohol doesn’t blow you away since the beer is so smooth and thick. You really feel like you are drinking something special when BA 12 dogs is in your glass. I understand it’s $$$/ounce but I don’t regret my $ at all.

My father in law is more of a light lager drinker but he had a small glass and swears he enjoyed it. My dad who like Jack Daniels (no ice), was so impressed with the rich complexity of this beer he started plotting on how to get his hands on a few bottles for next Christmas.
