Dang! That's Good Root Beer
Brewed and bottled by Imperial Flavors Beverage Company, Milwaukee, WI.
12oz brown glass bottle with a simple but attractive paper label. No nutritional information given on the bottle. Sweetened with high fructose corn sweetener, no specific flavorings listed.
Darker color with a small head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma has licorice and a bit of wintergreen. Taste almost has a root beer candy quality at first with vanilla creaminess. Finishes with a balance of root spiciness and wintergreen. Lower carbonation and a somewhat syrupy mouthfeel.
Nice flavor, but there is a sticky sweet candy feeling that stops it short of being really good.
