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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7056) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 Beers this beer poured an orange-brown color with a medium sized creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was strong pine, resin and a touch of citrus. The flavor was tangy and sweet caramel, bread, bitter pine, a bit of orange and cactus. Long sweet pine and resin finish. Full body - syrupy. Quite nice.

Tmoney99 (13757) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsadad06. Poured clear dark orange in color with an average white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy malt and dark fruit aroma. Moderate to heavy smooth thick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor to medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a complex beer.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of my Secret Santa I believe. Pours a murky dark orange appearance with a thin tan head. Dark fruity, plum, raisin, brown sugar, light caramel, herbal hoppy, a bit spicy aroma. Somewhat goopy, rich caramel, sugary, apple, pear, plum, somewhat chewy, light cardboard, somewhat boozy flavor with a fairly boozy, burning finish even when cold. Overall, pretty solid beer.

Devils milk is my favorite interpretation of a barley wine yet. Thick with dark fruit flavors and a very subtle hop undertone

Thick and creamy. Just a hint of hops peeking through from time to time. The alcohol is hidden a tad to well.
