COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Devilís Milk is an American-style Barley Wine. This beer exhibits a wealth of fruit flavors, from pears to plums to raisins. Devilís 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 ďafter-dinnerĒ drink or nitecap.

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. Iíd love to try this after a year or two of aging.

Pours cloudy brown with little to no head at all. Aroma is caramel malts, brown sugar, dry fruits and vanilla. Flavor is not quite what I was expecting from the aroma. light caramel malts, wood and brown sugar. Light bodied with little to no carbonation.

Had this one during the sampler, too. Not a big fan of the barleywine style brew, however, this one seemed decent. Not much more to comment about since I donít have too much experience with Barleywine style brews. Complex character with a rich body and flavor.

2009: pours dark ruby/mahogany with a teafroth off-white head. nose is heavy pine, candied plum, brown sugar. flavor is a powerful blend of pine, spicy and sticky sweet hops, brown sugar, raisin, brandy, candied plum, and dark cherry. aftertaste is long, bitter, and even with a nice balance of spicyu hops and brown sugar malt sweetness. visocus, thick, awesome. this is the brew that got me into beer...I thought I had rated it a few years ago, but apparently i didnít.

Amber body, off-white head. Mild grape and alcohol aroma. A little heavy on the sweetness side. Enjoyable.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Poured a clear dark crimson with a little foam. Aroma has some hops, with a strong sweet malt mixed in almost perfectly. The taste is heavy on sweet bread dough, with the strong bittering hops coming in quite strong. This is definitely a hot barleywine. Could do well with age but also great if you want some bite. The finish has a light alcohol burn to it, but itís very also quite sweet.

12 oz bottle - pours golden orange crimson with small, mostly disappearing head. No real lacing. Orange, vanilla, apricots on the nose. Taste is golden raisin, slight orange, maple vanilla, finishing with round citrus bitterness. Creamy palate with nice long finish. Good warmer.

2012.02.22 - On tap at Always Ronís. Light to medium copper color. Very sticky head which stays wherever it has touched. Taste is pretty good, seems like a quite hoppy flavor yet smooth and controlled, not overbearing.

Pours from the bottle with a sparkling, clear, almost pinkish medium brown color, but almost no head. The aroma is disappointingly muted, with only a mild grainy sweetness and a light pine character being discernable. The flavor is more forward, with woody hops being balanced against subtly sweet caramel malts. Itís not too boozy or sweet as many barley wines can get, and rather just provides a full balance of flavors. The medium body and light carbonation further help this one from getting too syrupy. Overall, despite being comparatively mellow for a 10% barley wine, the rich flavors one would expect still come through.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Pours a maple syrup red with a small off-white head. Wonderful sweet caramel aroma with a wealth of spices and light pine hops. Very full flavor and mouth feel. The sweet caramel is well complimented by an oaky undertone, and a smooth, spicy hop finish rounds out a wonderfully balanced beer. No hint of the ABV except a pleasant warming in the stomach. Excellent!
