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.

Ernest (6187) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2006 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, unfiltered. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a strong note of coriander, notes of lemon/lime, candy sugar, and alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, soft/lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Time again to re-rate Alesmith stuff to see if things are improving, but alas...this is about as clumsy and simple as it gets. Kind of like carbonated sugar water with a big dose of coriander.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Pours a cloudy golden yellow with lots of floaties. Large frothy head and a sweet fruity, perfumey aroma. Flavour is complex, sweet, slightly bitter, spicy, alcohol and a bit salty. Finish is dry and spicy.

Good... Hazy golden cloudy lots of sediment, thin persistant white head with slippery lacing. The nose is sweet with citrus and yeast. THe taste is salty kind of sweet but mostly salty, unique, sweet. The body is cool and crisp.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - MAR 22, 2004
a cloudy, murky yellow liquid with ample white head. Funky, horsy aroma, reminiscent of the lambic styles of Belgium. Mouth was a bit thin, and while not as complex in the flavor as many competing Belgian styles, this was perhaps more drinkable. Interesting brew, give it a go, but don't plan on a session.

heykevin (1274) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Soft hops in the aroma, plenty of alcohol. Syrupy, mouth coating texture, quite undercarbonated. Flaor is nice, clean and straightforward, hints of spice, quite yeasty. Full alcoholic burn. Fine, but I expect more from Alesmith. Thank to AlanC for sending this one along to me.

jables (101) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Poured a hazy and bright orange. With a beautiful frothy white head. The smell was good but not too good. Spicy yeast ala belgian witbier but much sweeter. Candy sugar also evident on the nose. The flavor is rich and fruity with spicy notes. Dried apricots, peaches, with coriander and some nutmeg. The mouthfeel is rich, heavy, and creamy. The alcohol is more and more evident as it warms. Overall, a great beer for sitting and sipping during those terrible movies that your significant other insists you watch on Valentine's Day. A special thanks to Gusler for this brew!

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2004
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.
