Dark brown color, approaching black, with a finger of tan head that lasts. Smells distinctly of root beer with a little vanilla. Very creamy body. Root beer and vanilla flavors, with roasted malt and a little coffee behind. Smells great, but the flavors don't meld perfectly.

Had on tap at pizza boy's. Wasn't going to write a review but had to after tasting this one because it is so unique. It had an amazingly unusual taste that goes right with the description. Nice little combo of stout and root beer float (which by the way I am not a fan of). But this really works and was shockingly tasty. If you get by there this is a must try for its uniqueness.

Poured from a Crowler filled yesterday. Pours a muddy medium brown that settles into the glass with a thin pale tan head. Aroma is spot on; vanilla and root beer spices are noticeable. Slight hint of roast on the nose as well. The flavor is pretty close to the nose, sweet root beer flavors, creamy vanilla, hints of roasty malts. It is sweet, but not sickeningly sweet and actually reminds you of a beer. Feel is medium bodied and creamy. A nice take on a root beer float.
