   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
ChainGangGuy (4354) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Appearance: Dispensed a black body with a fast growing, foamy, beige head with good staying power.

Smell: As with the range of aged Beauties, it has a deep, hefty maltiness; semi-sweet chocolate, molasses, and dark malts seem standard. Others, like the Zen, then launched into a dizzying fruitiness. Sure, thereís some fruitiness here, but not nearly as much. American gathers up some brown sugar and toasted vanilla notes, along with a big sniff of Jack Danielís whiskey.

Taste: Chocolate and molasses coating a smooth roastiness joins the aforementioned vanilla and dark brown sugar. Again, there is some fruitiness, but itís not the main focus here. Invitingly sweet throughout. As with the aroma, thereís no question this beer landed in a whiskey barrel for a leisurely soak. Well carbonated, sweetish finish with lingering Jack Danielís accents.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium-plus carbonation. As I believe Iíve said on my [fill in the blank] Beauty beers, the spirited carbonation is key, keeping the beverage from being a gloopey mess.

Overall: A tasty tipple that, this go-around, was paired with blood sausages.

On tap at the Westside location. Pours a clear dark amber brown with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of dark fruit with a hint of a vinous note backed by whiskey. Flavor is similar with vinous and dark fruit notes with a whiskey finish.
