COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the AleSmith incarnation of a Belgian Strong Ale. Horny Devil is an authentic Belgian Style ale, from the Belgian candi sugar right down to the yeast, a Belgian strain from a Trappist monastery in Belgium. In addition to the malts, candi sugar and fresh hops, there is also a little added twist from coriander seeds, which impart a refreshing citrus flavor to an outstanding ale. Belgian ale lovers around the world have raved about Horny Devil, and you will too.

Douberd (2221) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2014
750 ml bottle at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 11% Light gusher, overall score lowered. Deep orange colour on the body, with a big, fizzy and slight off-white head, that disappears immediately, leaving no trace that there was ever one on top of the beer. The body is mostly clear, with average activity in it. Aroma has lots of malts and booze, candy sugar, apricots, a touch of citrus appearing after a swirl of the glass. Taste is sweet, again lots of malts and sugar, little bit of yeast, apricots, honey, again a touch of citrus breaking just a tiny bit the overall sweetness, lots of alcohol. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, on the high side. Overall good, and despite its notable alcohol, very refreshing.

AWISLguy (1243) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2014
750ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars with a 7/16/13 bottle date, cellar aged for 6 months. Pours a hazy orange/copper with just a touch of a white head that disappears. Aroma has candied sugars, fruits, a number of yeast-y spices and rum raisin. Taste is of sweet candied fruits, strong spicy-ness (coriander, cardamon), blueberries and other light fruits, heavy malts and tangy yeast. Very lowly carbonated and quite sweet. With alcohol. Light to medium bodied and syrupy. Finishes very sweet and long, with alcohol. A tasty interesting layered drink, not in a style I enjoy. Someone mentioned Duvel crossed with ?? (cinammon schnapps?) That is the palate and consistency. Too complex in that style for my palate at this point.

SlackerMads (1549) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy yellow, medium sized diminishing head. Lots of coriander, grain, candy, sugar, warming alcohol. A bit sticky. Medium body, fruit syrup texture, medium carbonation. Not very refined, coriander and sugar, and why the hell make something like this? At least there is lots of alcohol to keep me pacified.

jonnyguns (904) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Poured a golden yellow/orange with a thick white head. Great lacing. Nose has pineapple, tart apples and citric funk. Cloves and coriander are slightly evident too. Very fruit driven smell! Taste is all about the spices - cloves, pepper and coriander combining with the resinous pine finish. Earthy dry bitterness rounds it off. Booze hidden, alesmith clearly know their shit. Great stuff..

annunz123 (853) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Boozy aroma, with citrus, a little tart apple, and some caramel malt. Flavor starts sweet and bready, with some dark fruit and spice. Spice, fruit bitterness, and drying alcohol in the finish. Outstanding.

nuplastikk (4342) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Tap at Malt House. Filtered orange body. Creamy white head laces the glass. Fruity, tangy yeast undertones. Mellow noble hop presence. Really smooth, fresh, drinkable. Almost some bock like notes, rich golden malt tones. Very nice, well done. Bock meets Duvel. Flowery hoppy alcohol soaked sweetness.
