Devil's Backbone's Kilt Flasher Wee Heavy Scotch Ale is pretty good, but a little short of great. It's dark red in color with very little, quick fading head. Roasted malt in the aroma, with some vanilla and something like roses. The sweet, smokey notes in the flavor are nice. A little hint of apricot, too. But it tastes watered down. I get the sense that there's a better beer here, but it is being diluted somehow before it gets to my glass.
