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.

2012.02.22 - On tap at Always Ron’s. 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.

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.

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. It’s 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!

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

Smells like candy. Some jackass is smoking next to me so it also smells terrible. My hands are cold as I am outside. Initial sweet taste, a bit bitter, but it cleverly disguises the alcohol. Not bad, but not as good as you guys think it is. Teenie glass is a cute gimmick.

On tap at Bel Air Pub. Poured Amber/brown in color with small white head. Aroma was sweet with dark fruit. Taste was very sweet along with dark fruit and some hoppyness was in there. Had a nice warming finish and was smooth with a low carbonation. Nice brew

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.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2014
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.

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.
