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.

Poured the color of Duvel with a thin white head. The taste was similar again to Duvel and I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes the Belgian Pale Strong Ale style of beer.

Bottle pours a nice hazy peach tinted yellow hued amber with a very small head, which quickly dissipates.   Minor carbonation, average lacing.   Lovely aroma of coriander and spices.   Flavor starts out very Tripel like, smooth and malty, ending in a subtle spice flavor.   Integrate into this a slight citrus note throughout.   Definate warming feeling approaches.   Lacks the carbonation I typically enjoy in a Belgian, but being very full bodied with a nice velvety mouthfeel it makes up for it.   Definate Belgian yeasty flavor on the exit, and a bit sweet too.   I quite enjoy this one!   Thanks goes out to herbjones for the trade!

Bottle. Pours beautiful clear amber with no head. Great aroma, sweet, spicey and very fruity featuring clove, coriander (of course) candied orange and slight alcohol nose. Flavor is good too, sweet and malty with abundant yeast, fruit and strong alcohol. Smooth, full almost syrupy mouthfeel. Another outstanding brew from Alesmith.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 23, 2004
2004 SE Gathering: Pours a cloudy brown/orange with a very herbal aroma. The herbs carry through to the flavor were they intermingle with spices. Dominant hop bitterness throughout that seems somewhat unbalanced. Strong alcohol finish.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Lots of big malty flavors that are combined with some lighter fruit tones maybe some bannana. Very light and drinkable. Good rendition of the trappist style.

Pours a golden cloudy golden color, with lots of haziness in the appearance, and a very nice fizzy head. The aroma is spicy and astringent. Lots of corriander, ginger, clove and banana goodness.

Strong overripe fruit, bitter chocolate, orange and hop aroma. Thick, sweet initial taste, like port wine. This one was a little overwhelming for me, but I plan on aging a bottle to mellow it out.
