Very disappointed with this one. I mean, yes...it's different....but not in a GOOD way! Like others have said, WAAAY too much of a vanilla taste...that really overpowers any other flavors that may very well be in there! I DO like vanilla...as I'm sure many of you do...just not SO STRONG! Really, chocking one down is all I can do....and the ABV (6%) doesn't even work that well, 'cause it's low for one thing...and it takes too long to down one of these to feel any "happy" effect. I hate to bash a beer..and while this isn't horrible...it's not a good effort. Seems like they hurried to get this on the market for the holidays...while compromising the quality and flavors that it COULD have had. The case my buddy and I got had AN ENTIRE SIX-PACK with UPSIDE DOWN LABELS!! Does that say something?? I dunno. Heck, maybe they'll be collectibles someday?! I still have 2 of the upside-downers left! Anyway, worth a try if it's FREE and you're trying only one. Very hard to drink more than that. It actually reminded me of a poor cream soda! Anyone else?? No trace of "beer flavor" or "Bourbon" either. Oh well...not sorry I tried it...but won't again. Sorry, AB....but try again. I KNOW you can do better! Take care my BA friends...and Happy 2008! SAAALUTE!
