Picked this up as part of mixed six to give a try. I tend to like Belgians but have little experience with Devils Backbone so not sure what to expect. Love the color, I will call it Deep Purple. Very little head or carbonation. Excellent smell, you definitely get the Belgian in the nose. Mixed bag with the taste. Interesting and tasty, balanced. Pretty easy to drink which gives it a little bonus overall due to alcohol content. I enjoyed the beer and would gladly drink again and would probably buy depending upon the cost.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A- Deep garnet with just a thin ring of off-white bubbles for a head.

S- Surprisingly not much here. A touch of chocolate covered cherries and caramel malt.

T/M- Up front is lightly fruity with some cherry qualities. Middle and finish again show a light fruitiness and chocolate. Thin and undercarbonated throughout.

O- A surprisingly poor effort from DB. Not a lot here and the lack of body and carbonation makes it even more unimpressive.

A- Dark ruby red tones around the edges of the glass. After a minute or two there is no head. Other than that, nothing much happening.

S- Raisin and currants. a dark malty, bread aroma.

T- malty dark fruit cola like flavor. Not amazing, but it's drinkable. A dry toasty woody finish.

M- medium body with a good amount of carbonation.

O- decent but without amazing qualities.
