Mission Brewery Hard Root Beer
UPS sent me a notification a few days ago that I was getting a package from San Diego's Mission Brewery. Hmm, I was wondering to myself what would be in the box. Two stickers and two bottles of their Hard Root Beer. Personally, I love root beer sodas. My family has this attitude that they taste like toothpaste and Pepto though they are completely wrong. Anyway, hand crafted alcy root beer is just fine with me. 7.5% alcohol.
Smell is awesome! Huge brown sugar and licorice with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. The flavors are more muddled. Basically, it's hard to pick out the flavors and tastes like a combo brown sugar and licorice soda. A soda that adds a big alcohol burn, especially at the finish. Not flat but fell flat! Didn't hate it but not a fan either.
