O, Atlanta Brewing Company, now Red Brick, why do you and I have it so hard right now? You disappointed me this weekend, but, when I had your beer at Taco Mac, all was forgiven. The original Laughing Skull died right as I was starting to love beer; the last one I had had been sitting around and was oxidated and flat. However, as the new version came out, I decided it was my job as an Atlantan to give the beer a new taste. I was impressed. The malted sweetness in this beer is highlighted by the addition of roasted grain. This beer is possibly one of the most drinkable beers made in the city. The body is fairly medium and finishes with a good balance. If you can find this beer on tap, drink it. It turns over fast and really packs a refreshing punch.

12oz bottle into a globe.

a - deep copper in color with a thin cap of tan head, calming slowly to a film and leaving spotty lacing in the glass.

s - caramel, faint raisin.

t - serious malt bomb. carmel up front, slightly bready, with faint dark fruity notes. finishes up with an earthy bitterness.

m - medium in body with a mouth coating stickiness. adequate carbonation, finer co2 profile.

o - good but not great. goes down easy enough, but probably better suited to cooler seasonal drinking than in the middle of summer. would buy it again but i'm in no hurry.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Red, naturally, with lots of clarity. Not much head or lace left on the glass

S - Malt forward. Brown sugar, raisons and licorice.

T - Very sweet. Malt forward again, like the smell, but a slight hop after taste kick. Fairly well balanced.

M - Smooth. Thin bodied. Light carbonation

O - It tastes like a winter warmer. Very tasty. Well done for the style.
