Brownie Carmel Cream Root Beer is a surprising root beer. The label is decidedly retro (and strangely features a Seussical elf). Like many root beers I have tried, this one comes from the American Pacific Northwest — the unlikely hotbed of innovative root beers these days it seems.
Brownie has the scent of vanilla, a bit of liquorice, and a whole lot of caramel. One slurp and the caramel flavour slams your tastebuds like someone has just fired a Super Soaker filled with liquid candy at point blank at your soft palate. It’s totally unexpected. I mean, sure, the word “caramel” is in the title, but it’s little more than a subtitle, barely readable, really. It should be featured in 3D. The caramel flavour lasts long after you swallow, with one of the most powerful aftertastes I have experienced. Surprisingly, it doesn’t have a cloying aftertaste, though, making the experience more interesting than yucky. It is very smooth and creamy.
Overall, Brownie is one of my favourite flavoured root beers. It is like root beer crème brûlée, and would make an excellent dessert after a multi-course French meal.
