Review: This is one of the darkest root beers I’ve had, and the foamy head on it was browner than most and gave an impression of depth and body upon pouring. The initial sips were strong with tangy root beer flavors, while the sweetness and creaminess from the molasses balanced the overall experience. It’s different in a good way that’s hard to place. Worth tracking down a bottle!

liquid color: near black

Head? very large bubbles and a brown color like a porter
