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 beerís delicate malt. Horny Devil finishes with a lively carbonation and a refreshingly dry finish.

Alefest í05 - 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).

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.

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.

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 didnít 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

Aroma is almost tang/orange juice like, slightly spicey. Flavor is a bit bitter, citrusy. Itís alright, but not great.

DocLock (8376) - 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 (4393) - 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.

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!.

This brew pours a clear amber with no head, very dissapointing for a belgian style beer. Aroma has a nice blend of sweet fruit and nice spicing with coriander and a big pineapple smell. Taste starts sweet with candy sugar and sweet maltiness finishing fruity and spicy. This beer hides the alcohol amazingly well. My only wishes were that this beer had a better appearance, with some head to it, and had a bit more carbonation to give it a more lively mouthfeel and some fizz to bring out the spices a bit more.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 2004 bottle. Good bright coppery-orange colored body, hazy with a big white head and fair lacing. Aroma of heavy coriander, pils malt (honey) some wet grass clippings. Flavor begins with a big burst of dry citrus, alcohol and powerfully overbearing coriander. Iím not getting much complex yeastiness, though it is distinctly Belgian. Lemon, dough, honey, lots of candi sugar and residual sweetness. Mouthfeel is thick, viscous and lightly syrupy. Body is medium-full. Finish is dry to the extreme, astringency, no doubt from the coriander and alcohol. For all of the good ingredients in here and the dedication to quality, I just canít get around the tremendous amounts of coriander. Mixing that with the firm alcohol prove to be too much for me and it just comes off slightly brutal on the palate. I donít really like how the coriander and alcohol ARE this beer. Iíd much rather they were just elements. I thought this was a 2003 bottle, so Iím a bit mad that I opened it, now that I realize it is a 2004. If ever there is a case of a beer needing more time in the cellar, this is it. Though itís going to need a miracle to meld all of that coriander in to something more palateable. Definitely giving AleSmith the benefit of the doubt though, and my score reflects that potential. Will revisit and rerate in a couple years.
