Devil's Backbone poured with a thin, off-white head. Beer color is a slightly cloudy yellow. The aroma is primarily yeasty, with an underlying sweetness, and some banana and cloves. Nice aroma - very balanced and not overpowering. The taste has mild yeastiness, sweetness, banana and cloves/spice that carry over from the aroma. There is a kind of sweet tartness that is hard to describe. Definite higher carbonation to the mouth feel. A little warmth from the higher alcohol. Then there is a slight bitterness to the finish. This has a lot going on, and it really works.
