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.

Quite a bit of hops in the taste, along with bourbon-like/oak taste taking over. Reminded slightly of Arrogant Bastard. A little overrated IMO.

Pours cloudy brown with little to no head at all. Aroma is caramel malts, brown sugar, dry fruits and vanilla. Flavor is not quite what I was expecting from the aroma. light caramel malts, wood and brown sugar. Light bodied with little to no carbonation.

Very sweet overall, even in the aroma. Some toasted flavors and a bit of bitterness are hidden in the flavor. Overall, however, it’s pretty damn sweet and is kind of a mess, though it still is tasty.

No way, no bleeping way that this is a 98%ile beer. AIPA aroma. Deep clear bronze. Filmy head. Too sweet. Way too sweet. Bittering was off kilter. Orange baby aspirin flavors. Amateurish.

Growler at Mike’s place: Deep copper color with a tan film of head. Grainy and buttery aroma. The hops are faded and dank with evident diacetyl formation. Slick and very buttery body as well. Lots of diacetyl presence fades the hops that are there. Butterscotch and subdued grains. Eh.

Bottle. Poured a muddy brown color. The initial buzz of a head quickly quit, but what was left was a virtual latticework along the outside of the glass. The initial aroma is light but vaguely sugary; this drinks with a biting edge, but a definitive doughiness. (#4202, 8/14/2011)

On tap @ Bowie location. Light brown color w/no head. Strong alcohol aroma. I was dissapointed in this one, just way too rough for me. Just tasted like alcohol, like doing a shot of whiskey. No sweetness, nothing to balance out the high alcohol flavor. I’ve heard a lot of people rave @ this, & maybe it gets better w/age-I hope so since I have a bottle ageing, but I couldn’t even finish it. Just too hot for me.

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.

No aroma. Crystal clear copper, thin yellow head, some lacing. Full bodied and bitter. Horehound dominates with plum skins in the end. Dried leaves are also present. Quite a rustic and robust barleywine. Very bitter, but enough sweetness to make it pleasant. Not really my cup of tea though. I love a good rustic brown ale, but I prefer barleywines and pale ales with more of a citrusy character.
