I saw this in the store the other day and when I saw that it was from A-B I figured I'd skip it until I saw a review or talked to someone that had it. Tonight, an elf brought me some after work so I had a chance to try it.
The label says it an "ale aged on bourbon barrel oak and vanilla beans". I took a whiff before trying it and the vanilla extract smell stood out. At first taste, I was surprised since it had both a woody taste as well as vanilla. I thought the vanilla was a bit strong but after another sip it didn't stand out as much. I should have stopped there. Instead, I decided to finish the bottle. By the end of it, all I could taste was wood.
I wouldn't really recommend this other than if you were going to have just one. Beer Advocate shows it at a 3.1 out of 5. I agree with their "worth a try" rating.
