Freaky Dog Soda Rooffbeer Root Beer

Bottle and Label: Clear bottle with a brown label featuring a snarling dog. I’m still not sure how I feel about “Rooffbeer” though

Ingredients: Carbonated water, caramel color, cane sugar, natural and artificial flavor, citric acid, sodium benzoate (preservative), contains sulfites

Smell: Very medicinal smell from the bottle with some licorice and vanilla hints. When poured the medicinal smell remains dominant.

Carbonation: A nice balance of bite and smoothness gives this brew a great mouthfeel and also doesn’t obscure any of the flavor

Color: Very dark brown and almost black looking from some angles

Head: Tall and long lasting head. I had to stop pouring to let the foam dissipate in my tall frosty mug. The foam lasts for a good while after the brew is poured

Flavor: The strongest flavor is definitely medicinal. This is usually a bad thing for me. However, there is also a strong licorice flavor that helps blunt the medicinal elements. It also has a slightly bitter aftertaste but nothing too offensive. Overall, it is not a bad tasting brew

Conclusion: Freaky Dog Soda Rooffbeer Root Beer is a great summer brew. While the medicinal flavor is not one I’m typically fond of it actually works for this root beer. The strong flavor, balanced carbonation, and foamy head should make this a brew worth adding to your summer plans.

  1. I tried the Freaky Dog Rooffbeer for the first time in a restaurant in Connecticut recently. I am unable to find it in any grocery store around here for purchase. Do you know where I can get it?

    • Hmmm…I’m not sure. You often have to find these in specialty soda shops. Occasionally you can find unique root beers in high end grocery stores like a Whole Foods.
