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.

kujo9 (1094) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - JAN 11, 2005
750 ML bottle: Short lived white head; hazy medium amber body. Peppery plum & spicy ,yeasty, clove in the immediate nose. Low coriander. Also a little tomatoey for some reason. Bready malt, low perfumey alcohol as well as light herbal hop & a bit of brown sugar sweetness. Tomatoey aroma goes away after it warms & plum gets stronger, and a light lemony citrus comes in as well. Well balanced & plummy with a bit of an herbal hop finish & aftertaste and is on the semi dry side. Between start & finish is a buiscuity malt, toasted malt, and plum gets stronger as it warms. Warming alcohol, higher medium carbonation, medium full body, and a little dry m/f. Not a bad Belgian strong, but needs a little more in the flavor to be a really good or great one. Nose offers a little more than the palate delivers.

3fourths (8465) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2005
750mL. Slightly murky orange with low carbonation and a small white head. Sweet and spicy nose with coriander, white wine, pears and light alcohol. Thick and sticky texture, syrupy sweet spicy malts, honey, corn bread. Could use more carbonation, that would set this up like a mig sticky malty trippel or something similar. Good enough, definitly drinkable.

Cinnamon spicy nose, dark amber color, low head. Caramelly malt with some orange and sweet sugary-ness. Some spice at the end. Very Belgian-like indeed. Heavy, thick and complex, and well balanced. Very respectable beer.

Bottle sampled at Marinaro500’s gathering. The last of the ratings to enter from the beerfest!!!! Nice light amber color. Sugary and spices in aroma. Tons of candi sugar in taste, somewhat overpowering. Very smooth body. Pleasant but too dominant on the sugar.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2004
This one came in a very cool looking 750ml capped bottle. In the goblet this looked a cloudy golden orange color with a small white head that dropped to a light bubbly cap. Very nice lacing was left around the goblet as it was consumed. The nose was filled with spice, coriander I am guessing along with a slight sweetness. The taste was very similar as a fruit sweetness was backed by spiciness and a bit of alcohol. There was also a slightly bitter aftertaste as well. Mouthfeel is full and rich, as most Alesmith offerings are. Overall this is a very interesting beer that is tasty but the drinkability is hindered by the over use of spice as is wears on you by the end of the bottle.

haddon90 (1559) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Bottle at RFD, Washington, D.C. Shared this with Jeremy, and a nice surprise to see on the East Coast. Cloudy amber color. Nice aroma of honey, spices, and assorted fruit scent. RIch, malty flavor. Spices and fruits come through, and there is a slight alcohol presence. Overall, a really decent beer. Alesmith continues to impress!
