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.

Clear amber whiskey like pour, thin creamy bubbly off white head and very light sticky lacing. ... Aroma of faded citrusy hops, dark fruits, chewy caramel/toasted malts and boozy .... Mouthfeel is thick, oily and slick ... Taste is bitter and of faded citrusy hops, slightly piney/earthy hops, dark fruits, chewy caramel malts and rich toasted malts ... Quite a bit of warming abv ... Finish is malty with a bitter and warming finish ... Well done def aging a couple of these so the booze flavors can tone down a little

On tap at Bethesda Food and Beverage. Nice dark orange body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, with some spices and barley in there. Very inviting. Taste is just great, with lots of floral notes, malts, barley, caramel and big alcy taste. Very strong kick to it. Really liked this. Nice creamy texture too.

bytemesis (5167) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 14, 2015
Tap, on release day so you know its fresh and highlighting the hops. Pours clear orange, small beige head, dissipates leaving decent lacing. Aroma is surprisingly light, hints of pine, perfume, floral notes, hints of cardboard, honestly. Flavor is light plus sweet, fully bitter, floral, perfume and pine. Medium body. Odd and not really appealing. Whats the draw here? At least the ABV is well hidden.

gripweed57 (1109) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Growler from Trenton Road Takeout in Fairless Hills, PA. Dark Amber color topped by a small firm beige head. Notes of burnt sugar and plums in nose. Flavor is more of the same with a nice warming alcohol burn. Soft palate has a touch of dried apricot and then lot’s of bitter hops. This is a sipping beer, make no mistake, but it easy to drink and therefor very deceptive. The name is well chosen. Finish is dry and bitter. Sticky mouthfeel from the resiny hops.

deyholla (8859) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a orange with an amber hue and a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of raisins and some light sweet fruit with a bit of sweet grains and caramel backing. Flavor has caramel and grains with a bit of raisins and a touch of bitterness through the finish.

Bottle trade from SJ. Beautiful notes of caramel, toffee, spice, booze, bread, coffee and hop. Dry finish. Really good blend of ingredients.

kennydiaz (354) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2015
Purchased in a sixtel from spirit in Manahawkin. It pours with a nice creamy head. Nice amber color with a nice toffee smell. Taste sweet and fruity plums and caramel with brown sugar. Does not taste like it is high in alcohol content. I have had in bottle format and in keg. I prefer the keg format much more.
