This term is derived from the actual description of an older male gorilla. A Silverback in the slang sense is an older man who hits on or dates much younger women; he is the male version of a "Cougar".
A group of Silverbacks, drunk after their buddy's 50th birthday party, adjusted their toupées and entered the college bar to try to pick up girls.

When a man , especially when he's with his female, turns his back on another male to show he is not in the least intimidated.

Like the silver backed gorilla - The Alpha male may mate with all the Alpha females & has first pick of food. When a guy shows his superiority over another male by daring to turn his back towards the other.
Stella: "Did you see Brian silver back that crazy, huge German last night? I thought I was going to have a heart-attack."

Harry: "It's a man thing - that guy was really askin' for it." "Don't underestimate Brian, he's not afraid of shit, anywhere. He's a sleeper in strength, lighting fast, & he's got endurance." "Notice that idiot calmed down after Brian silver backed him?"

Stella: "Yeah he did. I guess you're right."

A douchebag of immense size and exceptionally limited intelligence, so called as he is often leading a group of similarly ill-tempered proto-humans, which often results in displays of aggression. Physical descriptions vary over time due to the fascinating lack of taste amongst the sub-species (though one common trait seems to be the love of male necklaces know as "chains"); the modern variation of the silverback is distinguishable by the sloping forehead, stench of day old AXE cologne, fake bake, and gym membership swipe key; he is recently known to wear Ed Hardy clothing.
"I was in the club last night when some silverback drove me off the bar."

"Gotta watch my step... my girlfriend's ex is a silverback."

The emotional and intellectual antithesis of a gentleman.
