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.

(32 oz bottle: ScottVacula’s Barleywine Party ’04) Very malty, some dark roasted maltiness, not as sweet as many barleywines, but also fairly bitter, especially in the finish; Very malty nose; The palate is heavy and dense, but again, less cloying than many barleywines; Ruddy brown in color and fully clear; Tan head is smallish on the pour, but has solid retention, maintaining a thin layer

7/24/04. Poured out of 750 mL bottle, sampled at San Diego Barley Wine Tasting courtesy of ScottVacula 7/24/04. Dark auburn color, hazy. Thin whisp of a head with lumpy lacing. Clumps of sediment throughout the glass. Full, sweet caramel aroma, big and fruity. Flavor is darkly bitter, somewhat roasty, with autumn sweetness and sap. A bit harsh but very good. Full body with a smooth finish to a big crescendo of hoppy, dark twigs. I’d love to try this after a year or two of aging.

glimmering smokey quartz colored with an orangish tan head taking up just a thin layer of mostly big bubbles...Thick, caramelly sweet and hoppy aroma with slight pine essence and a touch of tinny but peppery alcohol...progressive flavor profile starting velvety sweet and christmassy with touches of spice and pine then moving to a candy-like taste...balanced but evident bitterness..some nice cough syrup notes noticed too. me like!

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.
