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.

Hazy orange in color with little carbonaation. Smells a lot like orange juice. Flavor is very similar to a tamed screwdriver. Alcohol is very well hidden, but this is way too much orange for me.

Spices coat this beer up and down. Very complex tasting with light malts, sugary, and fruits. Overall this beer was very enjoyable, excited to see what time will do to this one.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Spicy coriander, malt, sweet, yeast, estery nose. Clear golden orange hue. Nearly white-ish head, mostly diminishing, with slight lacing. Pale candy sugar, obvious dose of coriander, light malts, faintly vinous, light to medium bodied, crisp, clean and faintly alcoholic, quick, dry finish. Very drinkable for its weight. The more AleSmith I drink, the more I love it. WHen is it coming out EAST!

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 20, 2004
A very deep golden with a nice fluffy head. A very sweet malty aroma with a backing of spicy hops and candi sugar. VERY SWEET. Not bad but really sweet. Spicy as well with a bit of hops on the back of the tongue. Finishes strong in alcohol. A fine beer but not my cup of tea.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Hazy golden yellow, fizzy white head. Nose is spicy corriander, sweet orange peel, pear, fuzzy fruit, and fresh bread dough. Very Belgian like tripel flavors of all of the above with some alcohol shining through. Medium to full-bodied, soft carbonation, smooth, sweet, spicy finish. Nice....

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2004
2004 Mondial de la Biere Ratebeer Gathering at Tiggmtl’s. Golden/orange colour with minimal white fizzy head. Aroma of orange, spice, coriander, alcohol, and caramel. Flavours of light caramel, orange, coriander, and yeast. Alcohol bitter finish. Medium to full bodied and slightly syrupy. Thanks to CaptainCougar for this treat.

Like the previous poster, this was my first Alesmith beer, acquired through a trade. Beer pours a deep honey gold color. Slight haze. Light carbonation, thin white head. Awesome aroma. Complex malts and other spices intertwine to make this truly Belgian like. Taste is complex as well, with big malty sweetness up front, followed by fruitiness. The flavors twist and turn and overlap. Extremely satisfying. The finish has a bit more alcohol than I expected, but then this is a pretty potent beer. The finish wasn’t as dry as I anticipated, actually a bit hot from the alcohol. But overall, that is about the only drawback I can find with this beer.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2007 September 2007. Bottle shared by Blankboy. Murky orange body with a white head that fades. Spicy fruit aroma with a good amount of alcohol following it up, notes of tropical fruit. (7+) Similarly fruity character to the flavour, spice is there but less so than in the aroma. Warming alcohol is not overly present overall. (7+) Average to medium palate (3+) Solid. 7+/3/7+/3+/15-16 - 3.7 <P>July 2006 - My Canadian July 4th rating of an American interpretation of a European beer – how suitably international! Golden yellow with a small white head that diminishes. Spicy floral aroma is lightly yeasty. Dry spicy flavour with muted alcohol. Average palate is appropriate. A solid example of the style but still my least favorite Alesmith (its a tough group!). 7+/3/7/3/14-15 - 3.7 <P> June 2004 - My first Alesmith I was excited to try this. Slightly hazy golden yellow with a good sized white head that collapsed to leave a nice film of a head. Yeasty aroma with some spice. Slight notes of a fruity almost apple juice aroma. Flavour is very spicy with a bit of pepper and alcohol. The flavours are surprisingly strong and unexpected based on the mellow aroma. Post Mondial at tiggmtls’s. Merci beacoup CaptainCougar! 7/3/7/4/16 - 3.7
