Bottle pour. The beer is a clear brown with a white head of foam. The aroma has toffee, caramel, and herbal notes. Fairly sweet taste. Big body and moderate carbonation. hershiser2 (3701) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2016
$2.45 Bottle from Wine Warehouse. I’ve gone against my better judgement and purchased a couple of DuClaw bottles that I hadn’t tasted before. Full disclosure: I am not a fan of this brewery overall and I typically steer clear of their beers lately. That being said, let’s go ahead and sample this. hopheadedhubby (2) - West Milford, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2016 does not count
Pours clear deep amber with a gigantic beige head. I’d say I only poured a quarter of the bottle and I can’t get any more in. Aroma is quite pleasant: plums, nuts, pine, citrus. I’m starting to think this might end up being my highest rates DuClaw brew based on the aroma. Let’s see how it tastes.... Very nutty... lots of cashews, walnuts, hell even coconut. Then add some raisin, pine, vanilla, and alcohol.
By far, my favorite from this brewery.
Note: my bottle says 11.5% abv rather than 10.5%.
One of the best barley wines I have had. Great for drinking by the fireplace! You really wouldn’t know it is as strong as it is since it actually drinks very easily. Could be trouble if you had too many back to back. I could not find this around at all last year - very sad, missing it : ( Darwenus (1160) - Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Cloudy, dark yellow. A ton of head. The aroma is vanilla, almonds, honey, liquor. The flavor adds some spice and a fizzy mouthfeel. This is good barley wine.

12oz bottle. Another rot box beer. 2014 vintage. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of boozy caramel, plastic, hints of pine, and sweet rotted fruit. Taste of sweet caramel, earthy hops, grassy bitterness, toasted grains, and sweet fruit. Gtelli (1) - - APR 5, 2016 does not count
Devils milk high octane! Pours smooth and orange with a white head! Easy to drink and no bitter after tastes.

Pours up a hazy copper, with a thin off white head, and spotty lacing. Aroma of hops, resin and pine, some malts and some fruit. Taste is sweet, malty, some fruit notes and a sharp bitterness towards the end. Pretty boozy. This heavy hard hitter will knock your knocker in the dirt. Its strong. Not for every day use!

deep amber color; a bit cloudy; semi-sweet malt and alcohol aroma; a bit earthy; sweet malt; caramel malts and alcohol; dry, bitter finish with warm alcohol notes; well balanced rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 14, 2016
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.
