COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This year, we aged a limited quantity of our award winning (Brewer’s Association of Maryland Governor’s Cup gold medal winner in 2006, 2007 and 2008) Barleywine, Devil’s Milk, in Kentucky White Oak Bourbon barrels to create a uniquely tempting new brew. Hell On Wood is medium/full-bodied and amber in color with a thin, persistent, off-white head. Its mesmerizing citrus flavors and aromas, accented by notes of charred oak, vanilla, and caramelized sugar, give way to a palate dominating hop finish balanced by smoky, bourbon character and a warming alcohol presence (10.6% alcohol by volume). There’s no escape; prepare to fall to the seductive power of Hell On Wood!

On tap at unos in sampler.this might as well be a scotch. So yummy and woody with sweet honey in a ruby pour

Dark orange/ruby pour into snifter with thin white head - this is a noteably beautiful beer. Aroma of fruit/malt/bourbon. Taste is much of the same, but the beer has a bit of an off-bite or edge, but I would suspect that a year or so of aging could solve that issue entirely. Otherwise a very solid bourbon barrel aged barleywine. It’s in the same league as Central Waters, but falls a bit short of the Victory Oak Horizontal or Sucaba.

Pours a dark copper with a tad bit of a head. Wonderful citrus, dried fruit aroma. Taste is big and smooth. Fruity initially fades gently. Not much hotness from the alcohol

Bottle from WF PM. Pours hazy copper with loud, off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, molasses, oaky bourbon. Tastes rich, very dense on the tongue, with heavy oak and bourbon flavor, caramel, molasses, hops, mild smoky flavor. This is the best DuClaw beer I have had, and I’ll be buying a case to cellar.

12 oz bottle courtesy of Sloth. Pours a rusty amber with a medium light beige head. Aroma of charred oak, bourbon, caramelized sugar and vanilla. Taste of charred oak, caramel, caramelized sugar, bourbon and vanilla. Nice stuff.
