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.

Thanks to Eric, this is the third time he’s tried to get a growler of this to a gathering I was attending and it was the charm. A sweet, mild, caramelly, syrupy ale with an ever so slight alcohol burn on the lips. The hops are mild, soft, slightly spicy (nutmeg, cinnamon), and the malts are dark, with figs, oxidized apples, and plenty of toffee. And excellent sipper that leaves your lips and entire mouth feeling indulged, sticky, and smooth, with a gentle nearly-floral aftertaste.

Quite a bit of hops in the taste, along with bourbon-like/oak taste taking over. Reminded slightly of Arrogant Bastard. A little overrated IMO.

On taP in Baltimore: Too sweet! Brown Sugary, malty, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, are among just a few of the many sweet and too sweet flavors. I will say with all of the sweet flavors it could very easily get some one in trouble with its 12% abv. Of course I couldn’t get past the overbearing sweetness. Not any semblance of balance. It looks nice enough.

Hoppy aroma. Brown with a subtle red tint, accompanied with a light tan head. Body is creamy with clinging lace left on glass. Large hoppy fir tree taste. Warming and tasty. Bitter finish. Definitely dry-hopped.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 2006 draught at arundel mills duclaw. Pours a red color with a nice foamy off white head. Smells delicious. I smell hops, some sugar and some caramel. Taste is yummy in my tummy. I get a bunch of sweetness with hops racing after it. One of my favorite duclaw beers. Mmmm 11/11/10 had this beer on draught. Sweet taste with some alcohol in the taste. Guy behinding me is smoking and is smells horrible. Can’t smell or taste anything.

22oz coutrtesy of tarheels, thanks for this want list goodie! pours a deep mahogony hued amber with a slow rising off white head from the obviously viscous body. the aroma and flavor are good, nice and earthy, sweet but has some spice to it upfront. nothing special or off the wall, just a solid brew. wouldn’t mind trying this with a couple years on it.

Cloudy, dark yellow. A ton of head. The aroma is vanilla, almonds, honey, liquor. The flavor adds some spice and a fizzy mouthfeel. This is good barley wine.

Growler from Red Clarksville. Medium brown pour with thin off white/tan head. Dank hop aroma (good start). Taste starts out bitter hop and sticky toffee malt. Strong alcohol presence (as a barley should have). Could drink this all night if it would put me to sleep.
