Deadworld Slow Decay Vanilla Root Beer

I found Deadworld Slow Decay Vanilla Root Beer on a recent trip to Soda Pop Central in Whitby, ON.  This root beer is brought to you by Caprice Brands in Livonia, MI.

First off, I love the label.  It's based on the Deadworld comic books.  I saved this root beer to drink along with the season finale of The Walking Dead Season 7.  It sported a decent sized head when you pour it.  The flavor profile is built using natural flavorings which includes the obvious vanilla.  It is sweetened with pure cane sugar.  It was quite sweet and the vanilla was at the forefront.  The bite was that strong.

Druthers Black Cow Vanilla Creme Root Beer

I found Druthers Black Cow Vanilla Creme Root Beer on a recent trip to Soda Pop Central in Whitby, ON.  This root beer is another one of those brews brought to you by the folks over at Druther's Beverage Company in Oglesby, IL.

This root beer sports a tall head when you pour it.  It isn't that thick though and disappears on you quickly.  The flavor profile is built using natural and artificial flavors.  It is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup.  You really get the kick of vanilla from this one - they weren't kidding when they named it.  The bite was a bit lackluster but overall it wasn't a bad brew.

Sweetwaters Bison Brew Root Beer

Sweetwaters Bison Brew Root Beer is yet another brew that I received in trade through Brad. This root beer is brought to you by the folks over at Sweetwaters in Burlington, VT.

There is not much of a head to this root beer. It dissipates fast. The flavor profile is built using natural and artificial flavors.  I taste vanilla mainly.  It is very sweet (sweetened with cane sugar).  There was a mild bite to it but that was overshadowed by the sweetness.

Farmer's Brew Butterscotch Root Beer

I found Farmer's Brew Butterscotch Root Beer on a recent trip to Soda Pop Central in Whitby, ON.  This root beer is another one of those brews brought to you by the folks over at Twig's Beverage in Shawano, WI.

This root beer sports a small head when you pour it.  You can definitely smell the butterscotch aroma; however, I didn't taste that much butterscotch flavor.  The flavor profile is built using natural and artificial flavorings.  It is also sweetened with sugar.  The bite wasn't that strong either.
