Dang That’s Good Butterscotch Root Beer

Bottle and Label: Brown bottle with a light orange label that features “Dang!” very prominently

Ingredients: Carbonated water, sugar, natural and artificial flavor, caramel color, citric acid, and sodium benzoate (preserves freshness)

Smell: Amazingly strong butterscotch smell from the bottle. When poured the butter smell become more pronounced. It is unique and really does have a great smell

Carbonation: Medium-low level of carbonation give this brew a smooth feel without being flat. The smooth carbonation melds well with the smooth butterscotch flavor

Color: Almost black

Head: Very tall and very foamy and very long lasting. I had to stop pouring or it would have spilled over my tall frosted mug

Flavor: The butterscotch label is not just a gimmick. This root beer really has a distinct butterscotch taste. There are also some traditional root beer flavors with vanilla, honey, and hints of licorice being the most easy to detect. That said, the butterscotch is definitely the strongest flavor

Conclusion: Dang That’s Good Butterscotch Root Beer is good. No, it is very good. It has the traditional root beer elements but then it goes a different direction by adding the butterscotch flavor. I wasn’t sure I would like it but I am sold. This is a very good root beer. If you don’t like butterscotch you probably won’t like this brew. However, if you have even a mild affinity for butterscotch you owe it to yourself to give this one a try. This root beer earns a coveted “Editor’s Choice” award.
