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.

Tap @ Bowie. Orangish amber color with a trace amount of head. Aroma is relatively hoppy, with some nice citrus and general sweetness. Taste is much the same - quite sweet, hoppy. Perhaps a bit too sweet, but interesting. Alcohol is present, but not overpowering.

Poured brown with a tan head. Aroma of vanilla and citrus. Started off citrusy with some vanilla and caramel flavor. So f’in good. Growler went between 2 other people. Killed at the store within a hour.

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

From notes, growler at CDC tasting. Pours out a nice deep copper/amber hue. Aromas are dark fruits, earthy, leathery, some must, malty. Palate is pretty balanced ripping hops up front with a slightly sweet finish. I really want this one to age, I think this over time would be one of the best in its category.

Pours with little head, nice light copper color.very drinkable barleywine. Low bitterness on the front head with pleasant aroma on the finish. Tastes very pleasant green reminds me of the ganj, or so I’ve been told ;) I could drink several of these in one sitting. As a barleywine, this one is a bit lacking in body and malt for some BA’s but I will definitely pick up more of this next time I visit friends in DC.

Aroma of sweet spruce and citrus hops. Pours a medium brown color with a small white head. Taste is dominated by citrus hops, pine, caramel sweetness, and the perfect amount of alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied with low carbonation. This is an outstanding barley wine - one of my favorites. Very enjoyable.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours hazy deep amber orange, one finger off white head, some lacing, good retention. Aroma of nuts, pine, prune and raisin. Taste is very sweet but just enough hops to balance. alcohol is apparent but is not a distraction. Full bodied, lively carbonation, sticky but creamy mouth feel. Finishes sweet then boozy bitter with tasting notes of plum, chocolate, toffee, Belgian sugar, spruce and herbs. Good example of a barley wine, very complex. I would drink this again, in moderation!

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2003 Very smooth and seductive.Smells like a nice west-coast style but lighter.Looks very appealing/hazy ruby dark red.The taste is a tad watery for the style yet very enjoyable and flavorful.Not too much of anything...the buzz is quality.The palate is too smooth for such a devil of a beer(doesen't surprise me)teases of chocolate and some nice hops.Eaisier than most barley wines.Very much like the Old horizontal.Excellent!

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.

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.
