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.

22 ounce bottle courtesy of a free beer contest run by GMCC2181. Thanks! Not sure how old this was when I got it, but I’ve had it 13 months, so its got some age. Also, thought this would be fitting for my 3666th rating. Pours a clear dark strawberry red with a medium tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toffee, brown sugar, citrus hops. The taste is toffee, brown sugar, berries, citrus, peppery hop notes. Medium-full bodied. The hops have probably faded some, but I like that better anyway. Nice malty barleywine. This has aged well.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of my Secret Santa I believe. Pours a murky dark orange appearance with a thin tan head. Dark fruity, plum, raisin, brown sugar, light caramel, herbal hoppy, a bit spicy aroma. Somewhat goopy, rich caramel, sugary, apple, pear, plum, somewhat chewy, light cardboard, somewhat boozy flavor with a fairly boozy, burning finish even when cold. Overall, pretty solid beer.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2006 Growler... This beer rocks!... Thanks to Wendy for picking up a growler in Belair, MD. I thought I would never taste this great brew. The aroma is very malty and sweet. Notes of spruce, perfume, milk chocolate, yeast, port and brown sugar and fruit...and this just in... ALCOHOL!!! Beautiful beer. Crystal clear ruby hue. Very small, white, creamy head. Fully diminishing. Very malty and sweet up front, with bursts of caramel and sherry. The hops balance things out with good bitterness. Warm alcohol and slightly pungent on the backside. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Long, malty, lightly bitter, tart, dry finish. World class brew! Good going Jim!

Tasted from Growler. Poured a darker and clear mahogany color with a very small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, light cherries, and all around hops (very hoppy). Tastes of caramel, some dark fruits, and grapefruit. Light warming alcohol bite in the finish (but not 12+%).

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 A very solid barley wine. Pretty much all clear, medium-dark orange and copper colored body with a properly thick tan head. First taste is creamy, lush, sweet and rich... smooth. Flavors of rich sticky malts, yeasty candy sugar, plums, cedar wood. Awesome stuff. Rich, sticky and smooth.
