Court Avenue Restaurant Zimmerman Root Beer

Many many thanks to Vince in Iowa for trading this to me, as well as three (yes 3!!) other root beers I needed. wow, that is amazing, kind and generous.
so i was curious who Zimmerman is so some googling gave me my best guess as it being the former head brewer at the Court Avenue Brewing Company. He seems like a fine guy, from his linkedin profile at least. I has hoped for there to be more to it, some sort of legend of Zimmerman, perhaps he was a ghost or cowboy or something. but no matter, this works too.
there is a unique flavor in here which goes away after about two seconds, it is a sort of deep, rich flavor that i enjoy quite well. after that though, a more sharp flavor kicks in which is not as good but still fine. that is followed by a sort of hearty, earthy flavor which is even less good. this is a soda that is better at first taste in my mind. as i drink more of it i like it less. which is not to say its bad as it is not, it is still good, but not as good as it seemed at first or as it seems when you take a new drink of it. i have a feeling this would work very well as a float, which i see on their menu as an option. if i had some vanilla ice cream, i’d give it a shot. i do not though. so i must just drink the whole growler
