Huge thanks to rudzud for sharing this awesome beer with me.
Very small fizzy head, super dark caramel molasses brown color hint ruby light nice legs.
Nose is like perfect root beer, that earthy spiced like perfect smelling root beer, little vanilla and candy syrup. Just rootbeer.
Taste has some rootbeer, big sweet syrupy soda rootbeer, with the earthy herbal herbs and root fermented, etc. Little vanilla. However, there is a little woody root thing, and mild phenolic fusel booze but not nearly the real abv. Mild slick estery note. Finish is long rootbeer, little fusel booze but very little for what it really is, little syrupy sticky. Like pouring clean rum or bourbon into A&W rootbeer with less vanilla.
Mouth is med bod but syrupy, nice carb.
Overall awesome, just like a blended A&W and Barqs rootbeer with a shot of bourbon or rum in it but very smooth. Delicious!

Got this in a trade, super excited. Poured into a tulip.
A - Pours a nice well, root beer hue with a thin w quarter inch head that fades quickly to leave a light halo.
S - Aromas explode of root beer! Vanilla, no alcohol. Smells just like root beer should.
T - Taste is nice rootbeer up front then slammed with booze. It still drinks like there is alcohol, but no where near this level. The vanilla is great, again, drinks like rootbeer!
M - Mouthfeel is under carbonated. Probably due to the growler. Alcohol is hidden nicely.
O - Overall this was awesome. Stuff drinks like rootbeer, awesome.

I have been buying this in kegs for my kegerator for the last 3 months. It is a real hard beer to get your hands on. The deposits for the kegs started out @ $40, now they are $100, and this is for a 1\6th keg. I spoke to the owner\ master brewer about this and he told me it was because to many people were coming from out of state and not returning his kegs. They are a real small brewery so i can understand this and the owner was very nice in explaining this to me. So here is the review. A- very dark with little head some lace. S- smells just like root beer no alcohol smell at all, witch might be dangerous. T- taste just like root beer with a little bite not a bad bite but a good bite. M- crisp and feels great in the mouth goes down real smooth. O- I love root beer and if you do too i feel you will like this too. If your not a root beer lover your probably wont like this. This goes down very easy for having a 19.5% abv witch as long as you remember that is a good thing. Just dont forget it or you wont be able to walk after a few drinks.
