Draft @ Lockdown served in a snifter. Black pour, filled to the brim with no head. So, I hate it when people do this but I am going to this... I hated this beer because it tasted exactly like what the beer is intended to taste like. Yup, it smells just like root beer and NOTHING ELSE - no way to know its a beer. The flavor is like a syrup Sambuca-like flavor with root beer. Again, no beer. Also, no sign of alcohol, which makes me really question this 20% thing. But the problem is I hate root beer. I know, I know.

Draft at tropical oasis campground in garden prarie il. My god, the alcohol is hardly noticeable. It just tastes like a thick syrupy rootbeer with a little warmth on the end. Wow.

Draft @ Lockdown - took a train, and a surprisingly long walk. Kinda creepy place. This "beer" is particularly dangerous. Looks like whatever. Root beer smell. Tastes like eisbock’d root beer. Chewy as fuck. Absolutely zero alcohol. 19.5%??? Gross. Even my philistine little sister would love this. Incredible. Hey Small Town, to paraphrase Fabolous - "Throw it in a barrel!"
