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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2004
WCCII - thanks To Scraff!. Glorious garnet with a small shortish lasting yellow tan head. Big floral nectar honey, mollasses malt with hints of alcohol and plasticene aroma. Mild dried fruit sweet (not sticky) washed by strong port wine vinous alcohol. Medium bitter dry clean finish.

SeamusNeko (45) - Anacostia, Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2004
Setting: Served in a sample cup at the Michael Jackson Beer Tasting held at RFD’s. 2002 vintage. Appearance: Orange-brown liquid topped by a small light tan head that receded to a film and a ring right quick. Lil’ bits o’ foam were left on the cup. Aroma: Prominent aromas of orange marmalade with strong peppery and floral hops wafting about. Slightly brash alcohol taste. Flavor: Sweet caramel malts that get pimp slapped by the Simcoe hops, much to its detriment (IMHO). Palate: Thick and chewy with aftertastes on steroids. Overall: Not very smooth or contemplative. Very raw for an aged barleywine. This is a rude American interpretation.

Aroma of caramel, alcohol, dark fruit. Flavor of piney and spicy hops, caramel, molasses. It has nice long finish. Thans to scraff for bringing this to When Continents collide 2.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2011 Thanks to scraff for bringing this to When Continents Collide 2! Dark reddish brown with a small foamy tan head. Fermenting fruit, and malt aroma with some lighter caramel notes. Creamy mouthfeel, for a barleywine. Some malt, caramel and fruit (peach/nectarine?) hints in the taste. VERY drinkable. Great barleywine!

****RE-RATE**** Bottle. Copper pour with a short beige head. Sweet aroma with lots of dark fruit, caramel and sweet malt atop soft hops and cake. Taste is big caramel, sweet malt, dark, fermenting fruit, brown sugar, citrusy hops and pineapple upside-down cake. Body is medium with a pleasant, creamy carbonation. Ends with more brown sugar and caramel, lots of sweet, chewy malt, citrus fruit, dark fruit notes and more cake

Poured a pinkish ruby color with a creamy yellowish white head and nice lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel butterscotch, caramel malt, dark fruits and raisin aroma. Caramel malt taste also included hints of hops and finished with a dry earthy finish, some oak as well.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2004
A pretty solid barleywine- poured reddish-brown, with a medium light tan creamy head. Hoppy aroma (classic grapefruit/pine tango) with alcohol and underlying caramels. Hoppy flavor with nice caramels, dark fruit (prune and cherry to an extent), and alcohol. Not as thick and sticky as my favorite barleywines, but a nice beer nonetheless.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 31, 2004
This is a very good barleywine. Dark reddish brown, translucent(but dark), pours with a frothy bronze head. Aroma is piney, sweet, and malty. Flavor is sweet and cascade type hoppy. Finish is dry, I guess from the alcohol. Well made!

sloth (2400) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Had at the pub, served up in its own snifter. Was served too cold, had to keep my grubby little paws wrapped around this for awhile to warm it up. Small offwhite head hangin around. Lovely dark brown/amber color with a nice red tint to it. Malty sweet, hop spicey nose. Full/medium body, slick mouthfeel, glides over yer tongue. Malty up front some chocolate notes and fruit also. The alcohol making its presence felt with a warm slide down yer throat. More fruity as it warmed. Finish is fairly dry, malty, warm, with a good hop bite. Need to bottle this product.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Lovely, lovely stuff. Dark, deep brownish-red. Fascinating nose, rich, very vinous, bit sweet. Surprising flavor, huge amount of milky chocolate character for a barleywine, nothing like an imperial stout bitterness but a rich, smooth, slightly sweet yumminess. Alcohol really well hidden, drinks very easily. Lovely creamy palate. Beautiful.
