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.

Distinct caramel taste with a rich malt finish. It's lack of any significant taste of hops gives might explain its almost "Dessert like" quality … without being sweet. Also (in my neighborhood) it's conveniently available at Trader Joes.

This beer was what got me off hops and onto malt. I have had the original (which I drink now), wood aged, and whiskey barrel aged at Top of the Hops in 2013. All are very, very good.

Pours a dark brown with a mild to moderate head. Has a roasty, dark caramel smell as it opens up.
Taste is an explosion of malts, with a few residual sugars. Body is not the heaviest, but is certainly present.

I live fairly close to Devils Backbone and go out there occasionally, and while I like many of their beers, this remains my favorite from the brewery.

Enjoyed it and made a point to get it again.
Malty and you feel the alcohol - almost bourbon-like
