This brew is from the Dead World Zombie Soda Company. Dead world is the award winning, long running cult hit comic book. With over 1 million copies in print and over 100 comics & graphic novels released to date, Dead World is not your typical "zombie comic book or story".
Dead world Zombie Soda is a beverage line conceived, marketed and sold by Caprice Brands LLC based in Livonia, Michigan. The bottled drinks are manufactured by Intrastate Distributors located in Detroit Michigan. Intrastate Distributors is one of Michigan's largest beverage bottlers with brands such as Frostie Root Beer and Towne Club. Deadworld Zombie Soda beverages are available in 12 flavors.

Aroma and Flavor – 1.0 out of 3 mugs
This is a very strong sugar and vanilla aroma. I love vanilla, but this was excessive so it was more a crème soda as opposed to a root beer. The overall sweetness is way too much for my liking.
Head –1.0 out of 3 mugs
The head is solid and thick. While it was slow to dissipate, there was little or no head that remains.
Zip – 0.5 out of 3 mugs
Slow Decay has a unique bite and crisp, but not a root beer.
Post Consumption Impression – 0.75 out of 3 mugs
I generally liked the flavor mix but not as a root beer, but as a cream soda. They could cut back on sugar and make this more enjoyable for my preferences.
Would I recommend this at 3.25 out of 12 mugs?
This root beer excessive in the sweetness level for me. It has a solid flavor mix, yet more like a cream soda as opposed to a root beer.
