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.

bb (7051) - 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).

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2005
Bright orange/peach color, small offering of foam. Sweet, fruity aroma, pronounced spiciness, from the coriander and Belgian candi sugar. Very nice. Taste: big, big,big, and bold in the mouth, slick and delicious, though it drifts away off of the palate quickly, though never exactly leaves. Fat fruit, utterly tasty, though it could stand to be a bit more complex. Like an extra-strong tripel, with a fuller body. Alcoholic strength becomes heavier and more predominant in the overall feel, and I actually like it better as the bottle drains. Funny, that. Full-bodied, long, fruity, spicy finish. A nice brew for sharing with friends, celebrations, nice dinners....wish I had a bottle for every happy occasion that comes my way.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2005
This beer poured a golden orange color w/ slight head and lacing. The aroma had light citrus, orange zest, light fermented fruit, and a slight vinious (grape) note. The flavor had soury fermented fruit, apples, candy and grapes. The mouthfeel was light and creamy.

SDalkoholic (2185) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Copper color with absolutely no head what so ever. Nose is of alcohol and almost like a mint plant. First sip is very strong at least for me. Flavor is caramel malt, yeast, spice and some plant being coriander. This is not at all the type of Belgian strong that im used to and i didn’t really enjoy it even after i had stored it in my cellar for almost 6 months. I hope the old numbskull and speedway stout are better than this stuff when i pull them out

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Aroma is almost tang/orange juice like, slightly spicey. Flavor is a bit bitter, citrusy. It’s alright, but not great.

DocLock (8105) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Big salutations to Odeed for this one. Pours turbid dark gold/light orange with minimal head. Aroma of hopcit, floral esters, heavy malt, apricots, candi sugar, bread, slight vinegar. Wonderfully complex aroma. Tastes of strong caramel malt, backed up with big fruit, including apricots, peaches, honey, candi sugar, and barnyardy essences. Palate is form, dense, with alcohol and dryness as it warms. Nice complexity. Well done.

hotstuff (4303) - Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle. Small white head that was mostly lasting, sparse lacing, fine sized bubbles, very little carbonation, hazy, and an orange copper hue. Aroma was coriander, alcohol and spicy. Very nice! Sweet, coriander, vinuous, and spicyness. Yummy! Mouthfeel was fairly smooth with a slight burning sensation. Medium-full body. Definitely a sipping brew for sure and definitely worth a try IMMHO.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Amber body with slight head. Solid spice and sugary aroma. Warm mouthfeel from the alcohol balanced by the malt. A decent effort though the spice is a bit heavy!.
