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.

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

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.

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 Iíd 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 thatís not a bad thing. Probably a lot of artificial flavors, but still damn good.

HonkeyBra (3261) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Sample at the Beer Market in Vernon Hills, IL. What is this I donít 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 Iíd drink on a regular basis though.

Headbanger (3231) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Draft 8/7/13 (Fox and Hound-Aurora)-Pours and tastes just like a root beer soda. Itís kinda scary that a brewery can do this but I thought this beer was awesome.

JStax (2853) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle named Not Your Fatherís Rootbeer. Poured into a mini-snifter. Pours a black with a beige head of foam. Smells like Barqs root beer. Very sweet smelling and sugary. Syrupy, sugary, and medicinal. Medicinal notes come through more on the finish. Medium to thick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Overly sweet.

I had this in a root beer float at Franklin Tap, then was afforded a small, straight sample. So, letís rate this both ways. This sure acts like a root beer in the way that it foams around the ice cream. Color is a little more tan and the bubbles are tighter looking than for a carbonated soda. Others have remarked on how sweet this is, but I picked up a bit of acrid wood too, like thereís real sassafras in use. Takes the ice cream very well. Alcohol is not noticed, instead thereís some wintergreen. Only my taster with no ice cream showed a kick at the end.

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