COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Soul Jacker, our fiendish blend of Devil’s Milk Barley Wine style ale and Black Jack Russian Imperial Stout dares you to bet against its seductive roasted malt, espresso aroma, palate possessing blend of dark fruit esters that lingers to its bitter end, and evil 9.5% abv. You’ll never regret taking the Devil’s wager, even if you lose your soul.

22oz bomber from Al’s of Hampden on my way to the 1st ever Campground Brewdown. Poured a deep dark blackish brown with a smaller tight foamy beige head. Aroma is muted at first with some sweetness that starts to come on with a bit of warmth, notes of caramel and vanilla at first followed by toffee and molasses. Medium to fuller bodied with soft carbonation and a lot of sweetness that dries out nicely in the finish. Flavor is a bit better then the aroma with lots of barley wine notes, a touch of odd chocolate at first followed by molasses and caramel, honey, toffee, wet raisins. Interesting stuff that I would gladly sip again.

ben4321 (3824) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 9/5/12

Aroma: The nose is sweet and roasty malts, with vanilla, caramel, toffee, and burnt notes
Appearance: It pours a dark brown-black color with a light brown head and medium-plus lace
Flavor: The taste is also sweet and roasted malts, with some fruity flavors, and light bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-full, it has a creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and a dry, roasted finish
Overall Impression: This is a pretty nice offering from DuClaw. I wouldn’t go way out of my way looking for it, but if in the Baltimore area and the opportunity presents itself, I’d recommend trying it.

Well this strikes me as being a little under represented it’s quite good I find the devil’s milk blends very well with the imperial stout. Somethingto balance the fruitiness of that particular barleywine

Bomber from Beer Run. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized frothy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of roasted malts and toffee. The taste is roasted malts, toffee, bitter hops. nuts and herbal notes. Medium-full bodied. Nice beer.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2012
22oz bottle: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a clingy-lacing froth of beige head. Has a sweet dark caramel malty nose with some raisins and piny hops. Starts with decent fullness and fine carbonation with plenty of sweetness and mild roastiness with notes of toffee and raisins before a slightly warming bittersweet finish with some lingering dark chocolate notes. This beer definitely seems confused to me and a good example of why blending two beers that taste good in their own regard is not always a good idea.

willblake (2647) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 3, 2012
20120703 Bomber. Kind of messy mix of two very strong beers turns into a fairly hoppy big stout. Loses some of the best character of each of the two excellent beers from which it came. The intense strength is a bit much for this larger format, and might be well served in a 12oz.

unclemike (2214) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Amber red colour. Malty sweet aroma, some heavily caramelized crystal and toasted malt with a sweet cherry fruitiness and a spicy hop bouquet throughout. Pine and earthy/mildly resinous hops. Sweet malts up front balance with the strong hoppiness later on. A bit of honeyed character. Some pine and black pepper on the finish. Tasty bottle.

hopscotch (8914) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle... Pours black with a mid-sized, creamy, taupe head. The aromatic highlights are brownies and molasses with an afterthought of licorice or anise. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is mostly burnt and bitter with only a touch of sweet toffee. Finishes charred, carbonic and moderately bitter.
