This root beer is a beautiful deep brown color. There is a very vanilla, honey and sarsaparilla aroma on this. The flavor is much like the aroma with a sweet front and a smooth caramel middle. This is exactly like root beer with a spicy alcoholic finish. This is medium to heavy bodied and has a medium finish while not being overly carbonated. Overall, this one has a lot of flavor and it delivered! It is very similar to the regular 5.9% ABV but with a very nice balance of spices and higher amounts of alcohol. I can’t believe how well the alcohol is hidden with this one. It’s dangerously delicious and a must try!
