Im not sure if its beer, more like if there was a smirnoff ice type root beer. But you know what, its tasty. It tastes like damn rootbeer. Maybe with a shot of rootbeer liquor. Very sweet, carbonated like pop. Whatever it it, i like it and it can get you drunk.

Draft 8/7/13 (Fox and Hound-Aurora)-Pours and tastes just like a root beer soda. It’s kinda scary that a brewery can do this but I thought this beer was awesome.

On tap at Bigby’s in Addison, IL., and fluted sampler served with a ruby highlighted, dark brown color, creamy, persistent foam, and equally lasting spots & streaks of lacing. Presented a big, sweet, sarsaparilla nose. Full bodied, sticky and syrupy, with low carbonation. Totally hidden alcohol, but a bit too cloying for me. The 4 oz. sampler was just enough. A nice taste treat as a diversion.

Draft. Looks, smells and tastes just like rootbeer. I cant even detect the alcohol in this. Dangerously tasty.

Draught at Three Aces. Poured almost pitch black and a rim of foam. Smells exactly like a root beer. Very very smooth. Tastes also just like a root beer sweet with anise but with a dash of booze. I have always hated root beer but this might change my mind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Smells exactly like commercial root beer. Taste is sweet root beer. Boozy champagne yeast finish.

Tried this at WOB (World of Beer) in Naperville. This is what it says it is. By all accounts you would think you had a bottle of Sprechers from the nose. The alcohol is nearly non-discernable, so be careful. This is a sipping dessert beer, not something you want to sit down and order up all night. The taste is very much like root beer, but without as much carbonation. I need another visit with it to figure out more of the complexity, as I was sampling from a friend. Overall it was quite enjoyable and delivered on what it said to expect. Very nicely crafted. Kudos to the brewer.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 (Original rate date of 2/2013) Tried it on tap at Tap House Grill, St Charles, IL. My rating is based on it being a alcoholic root beer and not necessarily a "beer". It?s a Root Beer all right ! Very strong flavor and quite sweet with only a hint of the 10% ABV. You wouldn?t want to drink a lot of this but, as a root beer, it?s great. As a "alcoholic beer" ? Well, maybe not so much. Give me some good French Vanilla ice cream to pour it over !
