Has a nice ruddy hue, leaning towards brown.There is a thin white head that dissipates pretty quickly and leaves microscopic amounts of lacing. The aroma is pretty underwhelming, with only slight malt tones. The taste is a little bit more robust, with a nice generic malt profile and a decent hit of alcohol that threatens to overwhelm it but then dials back. There is also a nice earthy hops quality. THe body has a nice weight to it and a good thick feeling with just a hint of carbonation.

Not much of a aroma, its my first scotch ale but I've got to say I like the sweet taste

Pours dark very little head.Not much smell.taste not too bitter smooth going down after taste a bit like Scotch. The right amount of alcohol to give it a kick.Drink a few of these and switch to a larger with less alcohol volume to keep the buzz.Outstanding beer from one of the best Devils Backbone.

Beer poured into a "pint" glass from a 12 oz bottle. Beer pours reddish orange with little head. Beer smells of fruitiness, this is inviting. Tastes of nice barrel aged taste with dark berries, not bad. Beer is medium bodied and nicely carbonated. Overall, an above average beer.
