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 beerís delicate malt. Horny Devil finishes with a lively carbonation and a refreshingly dry finish.

Bottle at The Vine restaurant. Gold bubbly pour with a light head and some moderate lacing. Nose is mostly spice and a bit of citrus. It says right on the label that coriander and belgian candy sugar are used here, and they are the two dominant flavors on the downtake. With a little bit of dried fruit benath the two more attention-grabbing flavors, the end result is something special. Finish allows a little hop bitterness, yet remains predominantly spicy with the obvious coriander but suggestions of cinnamon and clove as well.

This Belgian strong is clearly a labor of love and evinces a real attentiveness to crafting. Itís extremely warm and full-flavored, with a complexity thatís rare even for this style. But relative to the price, availability, and hype surrounding this beer, it ranks as something of a disappointment to me. The main problem is its extremely light body and lack of head. Iíve had three bottles of this, none with any real presence in these areas - to me this compromises the many virtues of this big beer, and renders it almost syrupy in places. A real shame (as is at least partly the case with their Grand Cru).

Brown-amber body with no head or lace. Nose of fruit, alcohol and raisin. Flavor is really malty with raisins, white grape juice and other fruit. Smooth, clean finish which is slightly sour.

Bottled. This beer pours a deep orange-gold with little to no head at all. The aroma is dominated by malts and a slight hint of fruit. Itís medium bodied and goes down smooth. Itís a little spicy with a tart taste and a dry finish.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 27, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Looks like liquid gold. Pours with faint froth, if that. Aroma of sweet malted spice. Full nectar with few residual effers, almost flat. Sticky, chunky flavors of spices, nutmeg, corriander, fruity orange peel, cigars, grahm crackers, and vanilla. Alcohol is barely noticable. This brew is rich and malty with a slightly sweet character.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 19, 2006
Tap @ brewery. Golden with a white head. Esters! Fruits, cotton candy, honey, clove, lemon...mm... Medium body, very foamy and dry. Malty fruit with prune and cherry, almost raspberry; coriander, clove, sour yeasts, banana and alcohol warmth. Not a style I like so much, but this is good beer.

Golden pour with smallish head. Light aroma of apples. Hints of dried fruit and apple, almost a touch of ginger. Nice crisp finish.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2006
Orange pour with little head into a snifter. At first the aroma is bitter apple cider and pineapple juice, but then settles into all out pineapple. The taste is pineapple upside down cake in a beer. Just complete and straightforward desert cake. Itís really quite impressive, although it would be too much to finish the whole bottle yourself, it becomes quite rich like a good desert should.

Cloudy light amber color. The aroma is very sweet, with yeast, fruitness, very pure yeast, too much for me. Good body strength, very sweet, the warmth shows me it must be quite alcoholic, good fruity malt flavor, good bitterness. Overall a good beer, but the yeast is just too much.

Hazy gold color. Malty (both aroma and taste), strong, warming, sweet, balancing bitterness, light aroma of dried fruits. Good; no thrill.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 5, 2006
750mL bottle. Slightly hazy dark orange with a thin film of off-white head. Heavy coriander with complex peach and pineapple esters in the aroma. Also doughy malt and alefruit. Syrupy sweetness with high fruity ester and spice flavors. Thick malt, raisins, and heavy alcohol flavors in the finish. Mouthfeel is heavy, thick and hot.
