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.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2005 Poured a light peach. Nice head. Some lacing. The nose is loaded with banana esters, pears, mandarin oranges, sweet malts and lots and lots of coriander. Mango, pineapple, peanut butter, green grapes, black peppers, banana and coriander throughout. Fluffy in the mouth and quite lovely.

I did not enjoy this beer at all. The pour was golden with no head. The flavor was sweet and spicy but overloaded with alcohol. Quite disgusting. I couldn’t finish it.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Aroma was strong corriander spice, malts and yeasts, herbal hops, pepper. Appearance - fabulous - glowing hazy orange brown topped with a fluffy off white head. Taste was sweet plums, fruit, malt upfront and followed by a HUGE corriander / pepper hit at the finish - a lot of spice at the back of my throat making me almost cough (Chris too). I’ve got to wonder if I aged a bottle of this for a year or two if the spices would cool down a bit. Anyway, the strong alcohol of this one left me feeling quite woozy!

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Dark orange glow with not much head on top. You can smell the coriander and yeast the most, then a grassy citrus, mostly orange. Flavor is a dry sweetness, almost overly sweet. Taste is somewhat dissapointing overall. It seems to lack complexity I was hoping for. I think it is just too dominated by the coriander.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2004
Poured orangey yellow with almost no head at all...didn’t seem very carbonated at all...smells orange and coriander and alcohol sweetness...tasted sweet and orangey with a lot of that sweetness attributed to alcohol...did I mention I can’t stand orange? Anyway, dry sticky mouthfeel and taste...not impressed...found it quite cloying...

radiomgb (2363) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2004 Cloudy orange-peach in colour. Aroma had huge amounts of coriander and malt. Flavour was quite spicy, lots of coriander, malt and pepper. Finished with a medium peppery spiced bitterness. Why all the coriander? Thanks for the opportunity to try this Sven.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - AUG 24, 2004
on draft stones 8th ann: poured slightly cloudy yellow small white head. not much nose...some dull hop yeasty frank and beans , slight lemon zest. mouth goes down with a lightness, slightly less hopped then i expected, some suttle spicy notes and the old piece of plywood outback. way to thin for the style, unbelievable its 10%....this was the last beer of the day, maybe i had the brain scramble. but i wasnt all that impresssed and it surely didnt remind me of a belgian beer. need to try this again in the future to rerate.

The guy from Hi-Times wines suggested this one to finish out my case. I’ll have to thank him next time I order. Cloudy/copper appearance with white head. big bubbles of carbonation. coriander/orange peel in the aroma...something that I find very nice. The flavors pretty much match the aroma in this one. nice earthy hops on this one, especially in the finish. very sharp mouth feel. Some candy/spicy aromas appeared as it warmed. I liked it a lot. Should probably get some more for the long haul.

a lot of bubble gum, but in a very good way. typical strong belgium citrus flavors, but very light and sweet for the style.
