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.

TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of my Secret Santa I believe. Pours a murky dark orange appearance with a thin tan head. Dark fruity, plum, raisin, brown sugar, light caramel, herbal hoppy, a bit spicy aroma. Somewhat goopy, rich caramel, sugary, apple, pear, plum, somewhat chewy, light cardboard, somewhat boozy flavor with a fairly boozy, burning finish even when cold. Overall, pretty solid beer.

Devils milk is my favorite interpretation of a barley wine yet. Thick with dark fruit flavors and a very subtle hop undertone

Thick and creamy. Just a hint of hops peeking through from time to time. The alcohol is hidden a tad to well.

On draft at the Mad Fox Barley Wine Festival, Falls Church VA. 2012 vintage. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Surprisingly hoppy aroma. Some toffee and caramel, nice balanced with the citrus hops. Bitter finish hides the alcohol.

Bomber to taster at RBWG (thanks to someone!). Looks good; a semi/transparent brownish-orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells good; sweet and boozy. Tastes like it smells, but not quite as balanced. Average on the palate (a little hot, but will probably subside with age). Enjoyable.
