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.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

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. I love it

My very first Barley Wine, so I do not have a comparison. Nice floral and grassy aroma. Pours medium orange and hazy with a slight head. Initial taste of sweet fruitiness gives way to a slightly bitter finish. Overall a very tasty beer that I would definitely purchase by the case or even keg. At 10.6% abv it packs a little kicks.

2005 version at the Arundel Mills brewpub. Cloudy amber with a foamy off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with some spruce and citrus. Wow! One sip and you know you are on to something special. Expecting to be overwhelmed by the alcohol but was somewhat surpised by sweet caramel, candy like flavor. Not a big barleywine fan but damn, this is good. Excellent beer.

Tap from Du Claw in Bel Air. Pours a dark amber orange with a minimal tan head. Aromas were of cognac, fig, and caramel. Medium to Full-bodied.

Thick and creamy. Just a hint of hops peeking through from time to time. The alcohol is hidden a tad to well.

SeamusNeko (45) - Anacostia, Washington DC, USA - APR 29, 2004
Setting: Served in a sample cup at the Michael Jackson Beer Tasting held at RFD’s. 2002 vintage. Appearance: Orange-brown liquid topped by a small light tan head that receded to a film and a ring right quick. Lil’ bits o’ foam were left on the cup. Aroma: Prominent aromas of orange marmalade with strong peppery and floral hops wafting about. Slightly brash alcohol taste. Flavor: Sweet caramel malts that get pimp slapped by the Simcoe hops, much to its detriment (IMHO). Palate: Thick and chewy with aftertastes on steroids. Overall: Not very smooth or contemplative. Very raw for an aged barleywine. This is a rude American interpretation.

(2003) A deep burgundy beer with a small head, this is one charming demon. Smooth and sweet with a moderately dry aftertaste. Fully engrossing without being overwhelming. Go on, dance with the devil!

Tried at the MD Beerfest in Frederick. Quite simply the best beer there. Not only best beer but best brewery. It poured brown red, alcohol was not overpowering. Nice and smooth.
