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.

A LOT of alcohol on the nose. some pear juice, some orange juice, and some apple cider in the aroma as well. The mouthfeel attacks the tongue with its oily, cloying, and carbonated self. The flavors are pear juice (like the juice left in the cans of pear halves), red apples, white grapes, canid sugar fo sho, and a dash of ginger.

750ml bottle via trade with cbkschubert - Thanks Craig! - Pours golden with a fluffy white head that stays quite well and laces the sides of the glass. Sparkling bubbles rise to the top of the glass throughout. Aroma is corriander, yeast, and some grassy hops. Flavor is lots of yeast, some corriander, a touch of candi sugar, some apple, and pear notes. Palate is crisp, clean, and warming. Carbonated just enough to give it a soft mouthfeel. This like every other Alesmith brew I’ve had was fantastic!

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 I was shocked to see the average on this one so low when I pulled it up to rate. I loved it. The pour produced a very nice head on top of the cloudy yellow-amber body. The aroma was somewhat triple-like with coriander, other spices, yeast, and citrus coming through most strongly. The flavor was simply outstanding and covered the high ABV quite well with orange, coriander, yeast, and candy sugar predominating. My favorite of the AleSmith’s I’ve had so far. Outstanding. Re-rate, 10/2/06: No head this time around, pale golden color, coriander, wheat and yeast in the aroma (imperial witbier-like). The flavor was coriander, wheat, yeast, along with vanilla notes. With increasing temperature, the bananas came out to play. Alcohol was a touch hot, another 6mos would have aged this thing better. Mouthfeel was light with a little stickiness, but not cloying.

750 mL Bottle. Heavily fruited aroma, with incense of curry leaves, candied lemon peels, fragrant epazote, light rosemary bread and a swift flow of esters. Pour of lightly hazed orange peach, with a tinge of rose and fringes of gold. Rim of swirling white. Flavor is a well sugary sweet apple candy chew, with strong runs of candied raisins, plum pudding, light fruitcake, tufts of cotton candy, and copious bready yeasts, with spice a plenty, mostly in cinnamon, capsascin and toasted fennel. If any faults, belie, cloying sweetness is the one. Finishes with a rich blast of warm fusels, alighting the sinuses and dripping corn syrup raisin malts. In there, a tinge of light hop dryness and wicking cotton apple smack. Well built, but a little light on the carbonation and overtly sugary.

beer candy, sweet delicate and as enriching as the soulful speech of the cat in the hat, not especially yeasty but fruity and candy like in nearly every way, strong but very well balanced so as not to frighten the squeemish, probably the best birthday present I’ve ever ought for myself, ooooh dag thaz gud

Great Belgian strong ale. There is not a lot a head but a big aroma of coriander candy sugar. The color is a hazy orange/gold and the alcohol is apparent at 10%.

bindpmc (88) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 18, 2006
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.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2006
This Belgian strong is clearly a labor of love and evinces a real attentiveness to crafting. It’s extremely warm and full-flavored, with a complexity that’s 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. I’ve 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).

3/31/06: Bottle.
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.
