I had this served in a snifter.
A: copper colored, relatively tall, thick head that stuck around until I began drinking it.
S: Lots of fruit. I smell mostly apricot. smells beautiful.
T: Almost tastes like a fruit salad. I taste apricot, peach, and maybe even papaya. It's delicious. It's pretty sweet, but has just enough hops to cut the sweetness and prevent a nasty aftertaste. But not too much hops to where it's overly hoppy for a barleywine. Can hardly even taste that 10.6 abv.
M: Heavy body. Thick, almost syrupy. It could be a tiny bit thinner, but not bad.
Overall: This is probably the best barleywine I've ever had. I want more!

Enjoyed this on tap at Duclaw in Bowie, MD – served out of snifter glass.
A: Pours an amber hue with a thin white head that dissolves down the side of the glas clear amber hue with a very thin white head that quickly dissipates and leave no lace.
S: Very sweet aroma followed by a huge whiff of hops.
T: Very sweet caramel malt flavor balanced by the huge amount of hops in this beer.
M: Thick body and minimal carbonation.
O: Awesome barley wine – I grab one or two of these every year.

Dark Amber with plenty of sweetness and complex malt notes. Pours with a thick head and parallel-line lacing all the way down. The mouthfeel is beautiful and one almost regrets having to swallow. When you do the ample sweetness gradually fades and leaves a tangy finish. Overall among my favorite barleywines with almost no taste of the warming alcohol.

DuClaw Devil's Milk has a lovely amber/orange colour and a head that fades in seconds. A small amout of lacing remains around the edge of the glass. The smell is very roasted malt and maybe a hint of hops. This beer starts with roasted malt with hints of charcoal, chocolate orange. The flavour develops some citrus character in the middle but the maltiness remains the strongest flavour. There is a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. This beer feels thick and syruppy in my mouth. It's a delicious beer, but it's for sipping.

22oz bottle obtained via Local BIF from jwjon1. Thanks for the opportunity. <Jeremy2002 = bad trader>
Poured into a DFH chalice (also received from jwjon1 in Local BIF), formed a 1/2" beige head above the clear, coppery red brew. Head quickly falls to an uneven layer of bubbles, with the majority of the population gripping the edges. Lacing is leggy, airy, and lasting.
Aroma is sweet, fruity, and alcoholic. Taste starts with fruity sweetness, moderate pine hops bite makes a good presence in the middle, and close is warming but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is possibly a touch too slick, could use a bit more body, but drinkability is excellent for a brew of these levels. Dare I say this is a balanced 11% brew? Great stuff.

Poured dark brownish with a thin white head which quickly vanished. It was served in a brandy snifter and I had it with dill creamed salmon with walnuts. Smelled kind of like apple cider. Tasted somewhat sweet, but the bitterness built up like alot of stronger sweet beers (Alot of imperial ipas have this hopp bitterness buildup too). This beer was pretty thick almost syrupy. Tasted good enough to drink another but I'd be leary with such a potent monster.
