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.

Got to try a bottle of this thanks to "hannont". Colour... clear amber with no head. Nose... sweetly caramel-like. Palate... dry and sweet, stone fruity, tropical dried fruits esp. mango and kiwi with plenty of toffee and spice to back it up and a very looooong finish!

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 Thoroughly enjoyed this beer, though it reminded me more of a sweet IPA than a barelywine ale. Floral, citrus, hops, carbonation, nice dry finish. Would buy again.

on tap @ Hebron Brew House / Hebron KY --- Slightly hazy dark amber color, beige head, full curtain of lace. Taste is bracing semi-sweet malt that becomes less sweet as it moves through a burst of carbonation, followed by earthy burlap and pear in a finish that offers only the possibility of hops. Bold, big, light in the belly, a really appealing brew. Highly recommended.

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.

Leighton (17802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle at the RBESG 2011 Grand Tasting, London. Pours clear ruby with a filmy, white head. Old hops in the aroma, with notes of caramel and straight sugar. Very sweet flavor rife with toffee, fruits, malt, caramel. Awesomeish. Full bodied with average carbonation. Mildly warming finish with moderate bitterness, sweet brown sugar and caramel. Very, very good beer.

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.

Served fridge cold in a pint glass. Raisiny and plum fruit. Great body with big hop balance. Alcohol did not come through. I really like this BW. good thing cool weather is settling in.

Devils milk high octane! Pours smooth and orange with a white head! Easy to drink and no bitter after tastes.
