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.

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

thegreenrooster (4146) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Pour is a clear dark amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet molasses malt with a touch of dark fruit and maybe some cherry as well. Flavor is a very nice chewy molasses malt with some fig jam and a touch of white oak. The beer is thick and rich with a little alcohol heat but not sweet at all. Pretty decent barley wine.

superspak (4993) - Michigan, USA - DEC 11, 2016
12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 8/25/2016. Pours slightly hazy medium orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, peach, plum, pear, melon, white grape, lemon, berry, orange peel, light pepper/pine, honey, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light toffee, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, peach, plum, pear, melon, white grape, lemon, berry, orange peel, light pepper, pine, honey, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, light toffee, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, apricot, plum, berry, orange peel, pepper, pine, honey, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness, increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/sticky, and lightly slick/silky/resinous balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with a small warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a great American barleywine! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; very smooth and easy to sip on for the ABV. A very unique mix of hop flavors with a nice malt backbone. Well balanced with good bitterness, without being overly aggressive. A very enjoyable offering.

chinchill (4512) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2016
12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Pours with a clear copper-brown body topped by a thin, mostly short-lived head. Spotty lacing. Aroma: Sweet and boozy, with hints of dark fruits, apples and toffee. Flavor. Similar to the aroma, with soft and dried fruits, faint hops and caramel. Modest complexity. Overall: Smoother and, perhaps, better, than the bourbon barrel aged version (Hell on Wood).
