Poured from the bottle into a wee heavy ale glass.

An aggressive pour, brings a large frothy settling three finger tan and creamy head, fills the glass so nicely and settles slowly to a thick puck. The body color is an aggressive deep ruby garnet red, with a mix of cola and thin bubbles. The beer glows like a gem.

Nose is rather interesting. Thick sticky toffee malts and an array of interesting aromas. Cinnamon, soy sauce, black pepper and dense doughy barley in a way. Real fascinating if at time strange.

Light bodied palate with an interesting flavor. The malts don't seem to carry or provide a depth of toffee and thick sensing flavors. THere is a light bodied fruity sort of character to this with a hint of pepper like finish. Large pepper like aromatics on the finish that come on the swallow which is kind of jarring if not morbidly fascinating.

Overall it's also not quite boozy for the style, but the palate flavor is intriguing and enjoyable. Nice one to add to the Devils Backbone collection.

A - Mahogany with tiny cream head, little lacing.

S - Woody, earthy, oak

T - A bit boozy and unfinished. A hearty profile of sweet caramel, but an abbreviated finish. Some toasted notes, but lacks some complexity and a bit light on the ABV

M- Creaminess and I applaud the light carbonation allowing the flavors to come forward

Not a typical - nor above average - wee heavy. But a solid attempt and Certainly a couple will warm you on a cool night.

Nice dark amber color with a nice head - very little lacing. Rather strong flavor but not overwhelming. Roasted caramel notes with a slightly bitter (but not too bitter). Very nice mouthfeel. Overall a rather tasty beer. Will be buying this one again.
