    Whiskey & root beer is pretty good, so why not? I'd try it!

    The 5% abv concerns me, I would like something thick and syrupy around 13-15%

    I'm pretty damn excited about this, honestly. ABV and all.

    Sounds intriguing. Good or bad, no idea; worth a try, certainly.

    I had the Sprecher Barrel Aged Root Beer at Dark Lord Day 2009 from a kind gentleman who shared his growler. Left a really positive impression on me, I'd love to revisit this one in bottles.

    Cheers!
