Just picked up a bottle of the private reserve. High alch. content and not half bad. I came in a large champagne like bottle with a grolsch type swing top. I will be using this bottle for a long time.

Yeah It's not bad. It has a unique flavor, not like bud at all. It is darker and has more body. Little bit of a pronounced hop flavor, probably not as much as any one here would like but, more than bud has. Im not too good at describing flavors. Did i mention it is STRONG, it knocked me on my ass. I've got another bottle that i am due to share with a friend of mine who is a big bud drinker. I dont think he will like it though, he complains about all of the brews i have made so far " They have too much flavor" To each his own.

I saw those at a Sams Club and avoided although I did think the packaging/bottle looked pretty cool. I just figured it'd taste like crap as they're so accustomed to brewing. Interesting write-up and maybe worth getting one to try but...

AB is also coming out with a Stout. I went to a Busch Gardens in VA and went to their "Beer School". . So afterwards they talk of this stout they're going to market so I go buy one at their bar. Nasty! If I brewed that I'd think it had an infection. I couldn't believe that was the best they could brew up so figured this High ABV thing would be the same.
