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.

Iphonephan (3041) - McLean, Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2013
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.

b3shine (5191) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2013
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.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 22, 2013
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized off-white colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated slightly hazy golden brown colored body. The aroma was musty and malt hop. The mildly vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of wood vinous roasted malt crisp hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Damico (2491) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours somewhat clear amber with a grayish sandy head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is lightly sweet malts with no bite. The flavor brings sweet malts as well, but not resiny or pungent, smooth sweetness that works so well with the carbonation.

sonnycheeba (3362) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Tap. Pours clear, dark copper with thin, fizzy off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is toasted, caramel, and cracker malts, pine and floral hops, figs, and light dates. Flavor is balanced sweet malts and pine resin which causes a mix of sweetness and bitterness along with dark fruit esters, light woody notes, and vanilla; dry, bitter finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

boxofrane (2056) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear copper with minimal head. The aroma Is muted with some light floral and citrus notes. The taste is citrus forward with a bitter kick at the end. Boozy finish.

DCLawyer (1363) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle->snifter. Orange-amber with small offwhite head. Strong aroma of pine, honey, spice, tart fruit. Taste is a let-down; sweet malt with some spice and citrus, but funky in a negative way. Definite alcohol presence.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Clear amber brew with very little head. Smells decent - grassy hops, toffee, caramel but flavor is lacking. Lots of alcoholic heat.

jsmerig (1208) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Pours clear light reddish brown with a light tan head. Aroma of spicy hops and lightly tart malt. Taste is slightly sour up front with a dark but subtle bitterness and alcohol burn in the finish. Good on occasion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone sweeter than initially thought. Also notes of cherries.
