COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Horny Devil is our interpretation of a Belgian-style Golden Ale. Brewed with authentic Belgian ingredients including candi sugar and a Trappist yeast strain, its fruity and spicy aromas include notes of orange, banana, and peppercorns. Coriander seeds add refreshing citrus notes which meld seamlessly with the beerís delicate malt. Horny Devil finishes with a lively carbonation and a refreshingly dry finish.

pours out golden in color. smells fruity, sweet, and spicy. taste is smooth, rich and malty. i dont get a really heavy spicy flavor from this though. it is pretty sweet, making it a little hard to consume quickly. not a bad beer, but not the best alesmith ive had before. i would certainly drink another one if i had one though :)

A spicy aroma and golden amber with an off white head. A nice bitter hoppiness balanced with a malty sweetness and spice overture.

Taster @ PIB. Honey, amber colored pour. Smells of coriander and raisins. Initial corainder flavor gives way to cloves. spices, and a good sugary malt flavor.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2005
Pours golden with little white head. Malty sweetness and alcohol in both the aroma and flavor. The alcohol presence came across as too hot for me. Complex flavors from yeast, coriander, candy sugar, etc., seem to be somewhat hidden by the alcohol strength. I preferred itís less ornery cousin, the Lil Devil.

Sweet and fruitcakey aroma. Light golden body decent head, but fades to fast for a Belgian Style ale. Sweet citrus rind and clove flavors. Somewhat yeasty flavors as well. Alcohol is very well hidden. Becomes very enjoyable as you sip on it. Good stuff.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Pours a clear light golden color, no head. Aroma of sugar, bannanas and cloves. Flavor is sweet, lots of musty funk and other fruits/spice to it. Very interesting, a little too sweet for my taste. Thanks to Crosling for this one!

Props to Matt for sharing this bottle. Heavily spiced aroma - yellow cake, nutmeg, some alcohol. Coriander starts the flavor followed by cornbread, pale malt all wrapped up by subtle leafy hops. Cloudy orange-brown color. Nothin special in the mouthfeel.

Thanks to Matt! Apparently this is a pretty old bottle. The aroma is huge. Spicy, coriander, Belgian yeast, lemon zest, hints of smoked gouda cheese. Somehow this all blends to a 10 in a rating. I donít know how, but itís good. The appearance is a hazy straw color with a thin, nearly non-existent white head. The flavor is very spicy, coriander, lots of Belgian yeast, vinous. The palate is pretty good, but nothing spectacular.

an old beer shared by Matt a very light golden color w/ some weak carb bubbles and a tiny white head that laces pretty well. Big spicy yeasy aroma a light hop floral aroma and some sugar. Palate is smooth well coated lightly creamy and warm. Flavor is milder than expected tastes of sweet sugars belgian yeast and a fruit I cnaít place maybe figs or something like that. This is some dang good stuff.

06.23.05 750ml bottle thanks to footbalm. Deep and bespeckled tawny amber; wispy, webby white head stretches across the surface. Minimal lace. The aroma is alive with beautiful spicy yeast and potent coriander. A lemon zest brightness wafts above the rim; hints of goat cheese. Flavor, too, is pungent with coriander seed along with a dry bite that, given the flavor, reminds of the driness associated with the seed. Yeast comes back through in the end with a retronasal citric burst thatís out of this world. Candi sugar adds to the expressive bite of this brew. Palate is thoroughly effy, but delicately so; itís enough to help cut through the fat. Thanks Eric!
