It is basically a 10% root beer. Aroma is slightly boozy, but you wonít notice difference in taste until it starts warming up. Bargís appearance, taste. Fix this to say Not Your Fatherís Root Beer

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.

Tap in a snifter. Pretty impressive stuff. This may be the best root beer Iíve ever had and itís got a lot more to it. Very fragrant and herbaceous. Sweet enough but not cloying. Will definitely have again.

On tap at Lake St. Kitchen & Bar, Oak Park, IL. Looks just like root beer. Smells just like root beer, Tastes just like root beer. Carbonated just like root beer. 10% ABV is very well hidden, except for a slight kick in the finish. Amazing!

An alcoholic root beer-beer at 10% ABV you say? I had heard about this from a colleague at work who raved about it to me. Saw on tap at High Dive and had to take a look for myself. Draft pour into snifter. Pours dark brown/black, with a cola hue and very light carbonation present. Great presence of vanilla and toasted oak. The booziness only becomes more apparent when this one warms up, otherwise it is soda pop all the way. A unique tasting experience and one to definitely snap up if you see it in your area.

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.

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.

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.
