I had it in Dallas in a Chili's at the terminal stating that I was "trying it." The waiter asked me what I thought of Fortune and I said: tastes like Steele Reserve... Not bad.

The guy next to me agreed with my assessment. ;D I knew I was in good company at that point.

Mmmm Steal Reserve. If you chug two 40s it becomes Stealth Reserve. No one can see you so you can do anything you want.

A Co-worker recently asked me if I had tried Miller fortune. I stated I had not but I may try it on the near future. Although, I've had Steele Reserve and can't stand the stuff.

This is the beer that is "un-distilled" but meant to target liquor-drinking crowds, right?

It must not be selling well because I've seen it in the clearance bin at a few places.

yeah it's suppose to be a 6% bourbon flavored beer that they wanted served out of whisky glasses instead of pint glasses...

That sounds as ill-conceived as Zima.

Yeah, I wonder if it's bourbon or 'bourbon flavoring' . I would guess the latter looking at the source. Either way I hear it sucks.

I'll try any beer once. I think my perception is definitely biased now.  :)

Best review ever: "I slam these things and all other 16 oz cans within a few seconds I would give this a try if you haven't before pretty good stuff.

i lik3 to drink one of these followed by a 211 or colt 45 8.5% or what not sometimes the hurricane 8.1%"

I think this defines the target market.  I'll pass.

It probably has a crap load of corn in it, so it's on its way to bourbon, right?
