12oz bottle, poured into snifter glass. Note: ABV is actually 8.0%, not 7.8 as mentioned on this post.

A- Has a dark brown / reddish color, with quite a bit of foamy head. Good lacing. Not a bad looking brew.

S- Nose offers some malty caramel and spices.

T- Not at all what I expected prior to opening the bottle. This is an interesting take on the style. I do notice the common "tea" like flavoring but it comes through rather spiced, almost like a farmhouse saison or something similar. Relatively sweet, with a good mouth -- slightly carbonated, smooth, drinkable.

O- I have not been a huge fan of DB offerings so far, but this is probably the best one I have tried yet. I am reminded of a Belgian influenced Scotch Ale, if you can imagine. Now that this brewery has expanded distribution across most of VA, it would be nice to see them take a step back and think about doing some more unique, perhaps "reserve" beers (a la Blue Mountain Barrel House, just down the road). We shall wait and see! I recommend giving this one a try though! (1,045 characters)

On tap at Rustico during the Devil’s Backbone NoVA launch. Served in a taster glass. Pours a decently-dark brown color with a good tan head. Spots of lacing on the way down. The nose carries some sweet caramel, and a bit of bread and toffee. Mild sweetness to the flavor and just a hint of fruit in the background. Body is medium. Good finish. (345 characters)
