COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Devilís Milk is an American-style Barley Wine. This beer exhibits a wealth of fruit flavors, from pears to plums to raisins. Devilís 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 ďafter-dinnerĒ drink or nitecap.

RBSG 07 red body with little head and no lacing smells like a milky way. Texture was distracting in its oiliness. Sharpe in the finish.

Crimson highlights are barley visible underneath the murky dark amber body. A thin head forms and recedes quickly, fully. The aroma has tons of caramel, but in a surprise twist it also spews forth notes aplenty of vanilla. Plenty of aromatic hops, decently masked alcohol and ample toastiness, along with light molasses. The flavor is lightly to mildly bitter, moderately astringent, medium sweet and preety nice overall. The finish somewhat bitter and medium in duration. Mouthfeel is very smooth, medium-full bodied and sticky. Very low carbonation throughout allows easy focus on different subtleties. A great barbeque barleywine, from experience.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 > RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting

Sharp alcoholic bite to this one. Red body with little to no head. Some medium bitterness with the hops but this seems a little unbalanced.

Nuffield (3732) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Clear, light amber; big-form bubbles. Vanilla aroma, hops, more balance than in some comparison barleywines. Oily smooth going into my mouth but a bit astringent once it gets there and...thereís something ugly in the finish (I canít identify what).

1 L bottle thanks to drewbeerme. Pours an orange red with a thin white head. Nose is carmelly sweet and fruity. The flavor matches with lots of brown sugar, carmel, toffee, and red fruit. This is really sweet when its cold as it warms the darker flavors attempt to counteract the sweetness tar, charred and roasted flavors try to balance off the sweetness but the sugar and syrup is a little too much for me.

1L bottle. thanks to kmweaver for this. awesome label and name! pours dense dark orange with the thinest of off white heads, the bottle made no popping sound. nose of sweet plums, cotton candy. flavors are sweet, cotton candy, brown sugar, sweet plums, slight tar and tobacco in the finish. the finish is brillant and makes this beer something special. it actually balances the sweet notes and makes this something to be respected. alc is very well hidden, iím amazed itís 12.2%. the carbonation is extremely low but it works real well. hardly any hop notes. iíd love to age this 1-4 years, but itís awesome now. delicate, complex, and balanced.
