COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Devil’s Milk is an American-style Barley Wine. This beer exhibits a wealth of fruit flavors, from pears to plums to raisins. Devil’s Milk is dry hopped (hops added after fermentation) for a strong bite that balances its big malt backbone. Served in a snifter glass because of the high abv, barley wines are perfect as a relaxing “after-dinner” drink or nitecap.

Courtesy Dragonstout. Pours a murky dark brown with a light, white head. Pretty big hops for a barley wine, I was surprised by that. Some grapefruit and some piney aromas seem to metriculate as well. The taste is extremely sweet, almost puckering sweet. Big syrupy, Belgian candy sugar really lashes out at you. The finish is relatively smooth for this big beer, and the aftertaste makes you want to keep coming back for more.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Courtesy of dragonstout. Dark amber pour. Sweet aroma competing with hops to fight for your soul...Fat mouthfeel, lavor has hints of dark brown sugar, loads of malt and hops. Alcohol peaks through. Side note, the bottle is one of the coolest I have seen in a long time.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Dark brown/amber color. Aroma and flavors are pure delicious hops. Flavor is hops, brown sugar and toffee. Super sweet. A world class BW, but a little sweet for my tastes.

Groovy Groovy Groovy! Thanks to Slob for providing me with this lovely libation. I can’t believe I drank the whole thing! I’ve been looking forward and backwards to this beer since slob and I agreed to this trade. I remember getting this out of the primary at the Bel Air location sitting at the bar on my day off seven years ago. Upon opening the swing top a crisp, intense hop nose greets you, followed by an intriguing deep amber pour with a frolicking rolling head that settles down in its own time. Big, malty up front hoppy body. Nice. Balanced, sweet aftertaste. Power tool use not advised.

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle from trade with kmweaver. Thanks Ken! Pours a nice dark amber color with a small off white head. Aroma is of hops, malt, and brown sugar. Taste is semi sweet and malty. Flavors of brown sugar and hops. Alcohol is noticable but not overpowering. Nicely balanced brew.

Big ass bottle from kmweaver. Orange amber color with nice size white head. Aroma of caramel and mild hops. The taste was rich, sweet, and malty. Caramel and slight vanilla flavors. Mild hoppy finish.

Tap @ Bowie. Orangish amber color with a trace amount of head. Aroma is relatively hoppy, with some nice citrus and general sweetness. Taste is much the same - quite sweet, hoppy. Perhaps a bit too sweet, but interesting. Alcohol is present, but not overpowering.

No way, no bleeping way that this is a 98%ile beer. AIPA aroma. Deep clear bronze. Filmy head. Too sweet. Way too sweet. Bittering was off kilter. Orange baby aspirin flavors. Amateurish.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2007 On tap at DuClaw in Bowie, MD. Snifter glass. Clear copper/burgundy with little head. Aroma was sweet fruit, caramel, apricot, and citrus hops. Taste was sweet fruit, hops and alcohol. A surprising amount of hops, here. A hoppy/bitter finish with a bit of alcohol. Damn fine.

On taP in Baltimore: Too sweet! Brown Sugary, malty, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, are among just a few of the many sweet and too sweet flavors. I will say with all of the sweet flavors it could very easily get some one in trouble with its 12% abv. Of course I couldn’t get past the overbearing sweetness. Not any semblance of balance. It looks nice enough.
