Bottle shared by brew3crew. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy root beer aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet root beer flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Bottle... This beer vacationed in “The Virgin Islands.” Now they are just “The Islands.”… Pours clear and brown with copper sparkles when held up to bright light. Small, wispy, off-white head. The aroma is very reminiscent of A&W root beer, but with twice the sarsaparilla or sassafras. There’s no warning of the relatively high abv in the nose. Full-bodied with a thick mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor is sweeter than “really fucking sweet” - A&W fountain syrup accompanied by fairly heavy alcohol warmth. Sugary-sweet, sassafras and vanilla finish. Enjoyability high. Drinkability low. Fun, world class stuff! Shared with the south Florida crew by biggsbowler!

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Smells exactly like commercial root beer. Taste is sweet root beer. Boozy champagne yeast finish. Not sure if it is truly rateable.

Sampled from the tap at the Mundelin beer fest. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head that remains throughout the beer. Aroma smells just like root beer, very sweet. Flavor is extremely sweet as well and just like root beer. Personally not a root beer fan, but it does taste just like it.

Pour on tap, dark brownish pour with tan head, aroma is...root beer, straight up. No booze, its actually nice and rich with some ice cream like notes as well, delicious smelling. Taste is like great root beer with little to no alcohol presence, finishing sweet, vanilla. Wow, this would be very dangerous.

22 oz bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a clear cola brown color with a small bubbly head. The aroma and flavor are just like root beer. No sign of alcohol, especially not 10%. Not something I’d drink daily, but they nailed what they were going for.

Bomber to taster (shared by brew3crew). Looks good; like root beer. Smells and tastes good too; also like root beer. Nice on the palate. I get no beer out of this at all, but that’s not a bad thing. Probably a lot of artificial flavors, but still damn good.

burg326 (3883) - Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Wow, poured a deep brown color with aromas of vanilla, light sweetness, and root beer. I mean root beer, spot on, unbelievable, woke up my wife to make her smell and try as well. Flavors are the same, you don’t taste any of the abv, wow is this good. I need more asap.

HonkeyBra (3527) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Sample at the Beer Market in Vernon Hills, IL. What is this I don’t even . . . Pours dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of root beer. Flavor, root beer. Slick mouthfeel. A touch of detectable booze but otherwise clean and almost not discernable fron root beer. Pretty different beer if you ask me. Not something I’d drink on a regular basis though.

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.
