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.
