pretty much what Virgil’s wants to be, a root beer with a bunch of different, kind of strange flavours that still tastes like a root beer and tastes GOOD. this taste takes a couple swallows to get used to, but you come to appreciate the subtle cinnamon, licorice, clove and wintergreen along with a high level of vanilla. not my favorite, but nice for a change.

Found this one at Sprout’s. The first bottle I absolutely hated. The second one was a little better, but still below average. The licorice is just too much.
Found this at a health food store in my town. I have tried many root beers and found this to be among my favorites, thought it depends on the use. I tend to lean towards creamy/sweet/heavily vanilla flavored so this is all me, but somewhat disappointing when mixed in a float.
Maybe they changed the recipe in the 15 years since this review was made but I feel this is worthy of a far higher score than 68, at least an 80 in my book. I don’t taste any licorice in it though, or maybe virgil’s is my definition of too much licorice flavor.
I agree that this has many flavors and they are “Strange” I did not like it and gave it a 45
