Not bad

Not bad; never made this one with beer before. Have to watch the Kahlua amount, tho, otherwise too coffee-tasting.
Yummy

Used to drink these when I was a bar back in Cleveland, if you like root beer, this mix is for you, can be a bit expensive, Galliano® herbal liqueur is usually top shelf IF they have it.
Variation

I never had it with beer. I have two alternative mixings with this drink.

First - Substitute the Club Soda with Cola, it makes the drink sweeter (if that's what you like)

Second - For a less sweet drink, mix 1 oz. of Kahlua ,1oz. Galliano and 1oz. Vodka. Add Club Soda to fill glass
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

This tastes JUST like a root beer, surprisingly, you would not think so looking at the ingredients, but when mixed it is great, provided you like RootBeer
Dangerous

I got dangerously drunk one night, from drinking 6 of these babies after having 8 beers. I still have the scar.
