A: dark black with a small tan ring sound the edges of the glass.

S: sweet root beer, vanilla, very much like a root float

T: terrible combination of stout and root beer. Tastes malty and roasted and then tons of Sarsaparilla root. Lot of licorice.

M: thick, low to medium carbonation.

O: not recommended at all. I like both root beer and stouts, but it tastes like someone dropped root beer and licorice into what was a wonderful beer. Maybe some wool like this, but it's not for me pending a change odd palate.

Bottle was a gusher, got all over the place. Some root beer flavor, but not enough. Not much barrel. Kind of a mess overall. Thinner than I expect from a barrel aged stout.
