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.

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 (7488) - 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 (2232) - 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
