Devil’s Due & Hell on Wood by DuClaw

Hell on Wood
Tasting: March 3, 2015
Style: Barleywine
Beer # 708
ABV: 10.6%

A little awkward – funny bitterness and pervasive alcohol heat. The best of Hell on Wood by DuClaw is the caramel but it isn’t enough to carry this barleywine past 87 points.

Devils’ Due
Tasting: March 3, 2015
Style: Stout
Beer # 709
ABV: 11%

A blend of DuClaw Retribution (88 points) and Mother’s Milk Barleywine (no rating). Retribution is bourbon-barrel aged as is Devil’s Due. Smokey, somewhat sweet and loaded with bourbon influence. A little too boozy and a bit fizzy. Not a classic but a respectable 88 points.
