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.

Bottle via Beer World Catskill. A new addition to the beer world inventory. A big west coast body supports and surrounds the Belgian ale doing a decent job of escaping from it all. Candi sugar, check. Coriander, check. Hops are muted but discernible. Citric finish, check. Muted pale yellow in the large glass. thinner head. Thin yet fluffy quaff lines are left behind. A pleasant consummation of ingredients helps disguise the 11% fairly well, but not completely. Great with dinner.

leaparsons (8637) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Keg, Brewdog, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are banana and yeast with earthy apple. Funky with peppery alcohol and floral notes. Seawater with minerals and mixed spices. Base caramel with lemon cheesecake. Flavours are stewed apple with caramel and banana. Lemon with peach stone and cereal grain. Worry numbing alcohol with peppery coriander and a toasted finish. Very good.

EatMore73 (7) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2015 does not count
Pours a cloudy dark yellow with an average size white head. Aroma of yeast, fruit, alcohol, pepper and other spices. Flavour follows the aroma and is well-balanced -- it’s not overly sweet. Taste has strong alcohol notes and a smooth finish.

Bacterial (1919) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2015
Clear golden yellow pour with a slight head. On draft at The Lab near USC. Slight belgian spiced nose. Fruity and spicy taste with a nice amount of spice and phenolics in the finish. Nice but certainly not worth $11 for a 10oz pour...

Mortlach (1101) - Rome, ITALY - APR 6, 2015
750ml bottle shared @Mad For Beer (Rome) with ippopotamo36. Deep, unclear amber color with a decent off-white foam. Aroma is caramel, toffee, honey, brown sugar, no traces of hops. Flavour is powerful but unbalanced and a bit boring, very sweet, honey, toffee, caramel, some yellow fruits in the end. Medium to full body, low carbonation. So so...

721Lance (72) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Spicy aroma of coriander. Real Belgian like with some citrus and lemon rind. The caramel candidate like character balances this one out greatly. Big carbonation and great spicy finish!
