COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Devils Milk is an American-style Barley Wine. This beer exhibits a wealth of fruit flavors, from pears to plums to raisins. Devils 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.

(1L Bottle) Pours a clear amber-brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, port, and chocolate. Flavor of hops, sweet caramel malt, and fruit with a somewhat sticky mouthfeel and bitter finish.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Very sweet overall, even in the aroma. Some toasted flavors and a bit of bitterness are hidden in the flavor. Overall, however, its pretty damn sweet and is kind of a mess, though it still is tasty.

JK (5940) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2007
RBSG 07. Sweet aroma. A brown beer with almost no carbonation. Flavor is very sweet and sugary. Only a little fruit flavor. Some alcohol on the palate and in the flavor.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2007
RBSG 07 red body with little head and no lacing smells like a milky way. Texture was distracting in its oiliness. Sharpe in the finish.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Crimson highlights are barley visible underneath the murky dark amber body. A thin head forms and recedes quickly, fully. The aroma has tons of caramel, but in a surprise twist it also spews forth notes aplenty of vanilla. Plenty of aromatic hops, decently masked alcohol and ample toastiness, along with light molasses. The flavor is lightly to mildly bitter, moderately astringent, medium sweet and preety nice overall. The finish somewhat bitter and medium in duration. Mouthfeel is very smooth, medium-full bodied and sticky. Very low carbonation throughout allows easy focus on different subtleties. A great barbeque barleywine, from experience.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2007 > RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting

Sharp alcoholic bite to this one. Red body with little to no head. Some medium bitterness with the hops but this seems a little unbalanced.

Nuffield (4106) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Clear, light amber; big-form bubbles. Vanilla aroma, hops, more balance than in some comparison barleywines. Oily smooth going into my mouth but a bit astringent once it gets there and...theres something ugly in the finish (I cant identify what).

RBSG 2007: Bottle: Poured copper with a light tan head. Aroma, fruit, caramle, molasses. Flavor, spicy, caramel, some sweetness, with a good helping of fruits, some nice bitter hops on the finish. Very nice beer.

RBSG07. From 32 oz. Bottle. Pours amber with a nice orange head. Aroma very floral and grapefruit. Slight malt sweetness presence. Flavour is sweet, fruity, not really raisins but close. Perfect blend. Long hoppy sweet finish.
