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 beer’s delicate malt. Horny Devil finishes with a lively carbonation and a refreshingly dry finish.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 750ml - bought from brewery 05/05 - Aroma is sticky yeast, coriander, alcohol, and candi sugar. Pours a cloudy orange with cascading bubbles, a small head, and great lacing. Flavor is a bit off but still good. Sweet and bitter, coriander, candi sugar, alcohol, and a bit more malt and citrus than the aroma. Palate is dry and crisp. Nice.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a thin head and decent amount of lacing. The aroma is rich with spices, fruits and a slight candy like sweetness. The flavor is definitely a tongue twister as it takes on many different flavors through-out the beer, including sugary and malty with some spice (maybe clove or corriander) and then ending nice and dry. Yet another reason I love living in San Diego

It danced as it poured into the glass. Golden clear color, great lacing. Taste like almond syrup, lovely...

Pailhead (5675) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of aofoxxy. Aroma is sweet and fruity with orange, peach, and some light caramel. Pours a hazy dull orange with a white head. Lots of orange from start to finish with a touch of orange peel. Some candy sugar sweetness and some hints of peach. Light spiciness in the finish. Light bitterness in the finish. Very nice, but I’m not a peach fan, so that slightly detracts from the beer.

WISEGUY572 (1374) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2005
Quality control problems? Or is my bottle too young? Pours cloudy gold with no head, not even lace. Dead in the mouth. Simple flavor of alcohol, butterscotch, the the cloying bubblegum of a barleywine. I’ve been waiting to find this for a long time, and when I did I ended up pouring it out. Nothing about it reminded me of a Belgian. I could not find the coriander under the sweetness and the alcohol. My bottle says 11%, not the 10% shown on the ratebeer website, and i would have believed 12%; without more hops and more carbonation this tastes like a sweet drink for college kids, like a hard lemonade. I would have called it a bad barleywine in a blind tasting. I have another several bottles of different Ale Smith bbers; I hope their not as disappointing!

bu11zeye (12268) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2005
(750ml bottle) Pours a moderately hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma of apple, alcohol, and butterscotch. Flavor of spicy yeast, corriander, and sugar. Had somewhat similar qualities of a Bush Presitige, but not quite the quality.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2005
This one’s been in the cella r for about a year or so. Pours a gold color body with a fluffy white head. Spicy nose with a little yeast present. Great taste. Flavors are sweet bread, cinamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie, coriander, figs, and raisins. A lot better than I had expected from the previous ratings.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - AUG 2, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 Bottled. Pours a golden copper color with a bubbly white head. Big aroma of yeast and coriander. Bread and spices become evident as you bring the glass to your nose. Taste has tons of candi sugar and spice, tons of fruit as well. Finishes dry.

ross (2125) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2005
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.
