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.

An unclear red-orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroam is very fruity combined with notes of raspberries and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood and raspberries - the alcohol tickles the tongue, but can’t be tasted.

First thing I notice or do not notice is there is very little " Belgian Strong Ale" aroma from this at all.I get a little fruits from the yeast but the Brewed with Coriander is hopeless here. Flavor is much better than the aroma.At least I can detect some spice and fruit.I am a little let down.I have a 2000 bottle that I bet is much better.

Kinz (3404) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Medium burnished gold with slight haze, head was initially decent, but faded almost completely. Fruity yeast aroma, with a faint hint of wood and definite alcohol. Flavor starts off bready and quite candy sweet, moves into some apricot fruit notes, and finishes with some drying coriander. This beer moves from being overly dependent on candy sugar and one-dimensionally sweet to showing the "intriguing complexity" that I was hoping for. Bottle version of this is clearly superior to the keg version I sampled at the brewery, where the flavors were somewhat disjointed. Time has helped this one. All in all, decent.

Immense thanks to Mr. Mike… EyeDrinkAle,for sending this beer down my way almost 2 years ago.

Poured a coppery blond body with a fully mounted off white head. The aroma and flavor present a large dose of candied Belgian sugars, notes of toffee, orange peels, a suggestion of clove and coriander. I think this bottle was ever so lightly oxidized…. But it was kept in good conditions so I don’t know exactly how it happened. Overall, there was a large sweetness, honey and a hint of maple syrup.. even some black peppercorn here. A good beer.. I never would have let on to the 11% abv, though.

Thanks to rudolf for sharing this 750. Pours a nice looking golden color, full white head, viscous. Buttloads of coriander in the aroma along with orange and honey. Very sweet. Flavor is pretty one dimensional, very sweet, lots of honey and overly spiced with the coriander. Commercial description: "light to medium body" Ha! Massive body, sticky with sweetness and over the top alcohol prescence. Lacks subtlety in many ways.

"Damn right its spiced with corriander" --IPFreely. Nose has lots of corriander, lemon, fruits, alcohol. Flavor is dark fruits, grapey, brown sugar, plum, fig, alcohol. A bit heavy on the alcohol. maybe it just needs to age a bit.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Aroma of the yeast varity. Clody orange body with little to no head. Sweet bitter flavor and bitterness. Usually when a beer taste bitter to me ends up in a bad rating. But this beer was smooth on the palate dispite the bitterness. Decent beer.

bb (7133) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Bottle. Rich amber color with no head. Sweet malt aroma with some yeast/spiciness. Sweet malt/honey flavor with some spice. Thick bodied. Hides alcohol very well. Much better tasting with a bit of the yeast swirled in. Leaves a bit of spiciness and sweetness on the tongue.

Alefest ’05 - Sorry to all the diehards. This was more like a wine to me than an ale. Not my style so please forgive my opinion. Too sweet and too much of the coriander (for me).
