Brewer’s Association of Maryland Governor’s Cup gold medal
winner in 2006, 2007 and 2008, has used a different blend of hops
to flavor and bitter the beer, making each batch of Devil’s Milk a
unique experience. The 2010 vintage of Devil’s Milk epitomizes
the American Barley Wine-Style Ale. A medium bodied, copper
ale with a thin, persistent, off-white head and a complex flavor
profile with an assertive hop bill. A backbone of Columbus hops
for bittering (66 ibu’s) creates a solid base for the mesmerizing
citrus flavors and aromas of the palate dominating Chinook hop
finish and warming alcohol presence (10.6% alcohol by volume).
Devil’s Milk is best served in a snifter, both to accommodate its
alcohol content and allow the complex flavors inherent in the
beer to emerge as it warms in the glass.
