Rich, decadent flavor, big bourbon. A little sweet and it doesn't taste like root beer (fortunately), but this is quite enjoyable, especially when consumed as a dessert beer.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a dark black, with a small foamy tan head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells great- vanilla, roasted malt, spicing, and root beer- duh!

The taste is similar. They still managed to make this one a stout at heart, which is nice. The sarsaparilla/root beer flavors, sweet and earthy, mix really well with the subtle sweetness of the bourbon. There's ton of vanilla flavor here as well, with some chocolate and roasted malt as well.

Medium bodied, but slightly thin for the style, unfortunately. Still quite drinkable, with a creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

One of the more unique stouts I've ever had, this was delicious.
