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.

Turboninja (685) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2016
[email protected], from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong distinctive slightly artificial aroma with raisin, caramel and alcohol. Dark copper color with small light beige head and semi-hazy liquid. Strong complex taste with sweet raisin, plum, cherry and alcohol. Averagely balanced with wide/medium taste spectrum and long sweet hoppy aftertaste of sweet raisin and a hint of sweet malts. Medium/strong body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, distinctive taste but in a bit artificial and messy fashion.

cheap (5578) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Bot. Pours a thicker looking menacing darker amber color. Mild sweet perfume aroma. First taste is bitter alky thang. Next taste is rough personality. Difficult fer sher. Strongish punch in the face. Volatile. Not too enjoyable IMHO. I guess it does what its sposed to, make you dizzy.

Pours dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is dark dried fruit, caramel, and pine resin and alocohol. Sticky mouth feel. Flavor is caramel malt, dark dried fruit, brown sugar, and raisins. Finishes with booziness and pine resin.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2015
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 (7610) - 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.

Served fridge cold in a pint glass. Raisiny and plum fruit. Great body with big hop balance. Alcohol did not come through. I really like this BW. good thing cool weather is settling in.

gripweed57 (1461) - 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 lots 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.
