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.

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.

Bottle opened by Jared. Served in a wine glass. Pours a copper color with a minimal off-white head and a touch of lacing, though most of the head fades into a thin color. Some light legs as well. The nose is really quite plain with only a bit of bread and some brown sugar. The taste is mildly sweet and has a bit of light booze. Moderate caramel and brown sugar there as well. Mild cherry in the back end. Medium body with low carbonation and a dry finish. Not bad, but not particularly good, either. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 04-12-2011

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2008 Sampled from a small keg at the Real Ale festival at the DuClaw location in Bel Air. This had a nice aroma, very malty with some caramel and some hops hiding in the background. The flavor however was like getting punched in the face. First it is super sweet, but there is such an intense hop bitterness that it’s like two warring factions launching nukes inside your mouth. Then the alcohol hits and wipes everything else out. This was a harsh weird horribly confused and confusing beer. Kudos for trying something "experimental" but yuck.
