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.

PDG ... pretty darn good. Came off as an IPA to me. Think maybe DFH 90 Minute w/ more of a subtle herbal taste spice flavor & some citrus & fruity notes. Mixes in a well a soft sweet malty rather smooth medium built body. Hides the alcohol content well. I still think IPA moreso than seasonal / barley wine. Good offering.

Nice dark fruit aroma with some great caramel and malt flavor and a good underlying bitterness. Flavor is a good hoppy bitterness with good raisin and caramel undertones. Does not leave much lingering on the tongue. Overall a solid beer.

Pours dark orange with a nice aroma of caramel, sugar and pine. Body is dry with flavors of different dark fruits and quite boozy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Arundel Mills. First, I would like to say that it should be a prerequisite for servers to have some knowledge about beer if they are going to work at a freakin brewpub. Our server was clueless. Anyways, this beer was decent. The best quality of this beer was how well the alcohol was hidden. Not particularly flavorful or aromatic, but not offensive. It was served ice cold and I didn’t have the patience to wait for it to warm up to properly evaluate it. Next time I’ll order a pint of Venom and a glass of this stuff at the same time and drink the Venom first while this warms up.

Tap at DuClaw: Poured a dark brown color with a light white head. Taste is pretty sweet with a definite kick of alcohol.

pretty decent for a cheap drink. I thought "milk" in the name was just being cute, but their actually is a milk-like mouthfeel which I love - a little slippery which coats the mouth with a sweet film. Very nice. The first flavor is a molasses cloying sweetness which seems too much, but the aftertaste is pleasant like a ginger cookie. I’d buy it again.

Dark amber bronze body with a short lived head. Sweet fruity aroma with hints of honey, toffee and some mild spice. Sweet ripe fruit flavors are complex, ends with a nice bitter finish. Real good brew.

Draft at DuClaw. Ruby/amber body with big creamy, off-white head. The Aroma is hoppy, floral, pine, citrus and malt, caramel and toffee. Alcohol is detectable in the nose. The flavor is bitter hops and sweet malt, some grapefruit, spice, musty, caramel, toffee, plums and alcohol. The mouthfeel is smooth and silky

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma is close to that of a port or a sherry wine. Tastes of caramel, dark fruit, citrus, vanilla, and candy sugar. Light bodied, light carbonation, almost an oily feel.

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Ruby red color, under a thin but very lacey head. Aroma is sweet and enticing. Full complex flavor, initial sweetness blast, but intense and very fresh tasting hops take over. Very aggressively hopped. Booze is noticeable in the end, but very mild. Body is rich, an ideal balance of sweet stickiness and velvety smoothness. The perfect BW for hopheads. A shame this only comes around once a year.
