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.

06.23.05 750ml bottle thanks to footbalm. Deep and bespeckled tawny amber; wispy, webby white head stretches across the surface. Minimal lace. The aroma is alive with beautiful spicy yeast and potent coriander. A lemon zest brightness wafts above the rim; hints of goat cheese. Flavor, too, is pungent with coriander seed along with a dry bite that, given the flavor, reminds of the driness associated with the seed. Yeast comes back through in the end with a retronasal citric burst that’s out of this world. Candi sugar adds to the expressive bite of this brew. Palate is thoroughly effy, but delicately so; it’s enough to help cut through the fat. Thanks Eric!

Bottle at tasting. Dark hazy amber with medium head. Medium sweet aroma with a small alcohol tone. Medium to full body with medium finish. Medium malty flavor with sweet tone and small alcohol bite.

An unclear red-orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroam is very fruity combined with notes of raspberries and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet with notes of wood and raspberries - the alcohol tickles the tongue, but can’t be tasted.

First thing I notice or do not notice is there is very little " Belgian Strong Ale" aroma from this at all.I get a little fruits from the yeast but the Brewed with Coriander is hopeless here. Flavor is much better than the aroma.At least I can detect some spice and fruit.I am a little let down.I have a 2000 bottle that I bet is much better.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Medium burnished gold with slight haze, head was initially decent, but faded almost completely. Fruity yeast aroma, with a faint hint of wood and definite alcohol. Flavor starts off bready and quite candy sweet, moves into some apricot fruit notes, and finishes with some drying coriander. This beer moves from being overly dependent on candy sugar and one-dimensionally sweet to showing the "intriguing complexity" that I was hoping for. Bottle version of this is clearly superior to the keg version I sampled at the brewery, where the flavors were somewhat disjointed. Time has helped this one. All in all, decent.

Immense thanks to Mr. Mike… EyeDrinkAle,for sending this beer down my way almost 2 years ago.

Poured a coppery blond body with a fully mounted off white head. The aroma and flavor present a large dose of candied Belgian sugars, notes of toffee, orange peels, a suggestion of clove and coriander. I think this bottle was ever so lightly oxidized…. But it was kept in good conditions so I don’t know exactly how it happened. Overall, there was a large sweetness, honey and a hint of maple syrup.. even some black peppercorn here. A good beer.. I never would have let on to the 11% abv, though.

Thanks to rudolf for sharing this 750. Pours a nice looking golden color, full white head, viscous. Buttloads of coriander in the aroma along with orange and honey. Very sweet. Flavor is pretty one dimensional, very sweet, lots of honey and overly spiced with the coriander. Commercial description: "light to medium body" Ha! Massive body, sticky with sweetness and over the top alcohol prescence. Lacks subtlety in many ways.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 22, 2005
"Damn right its spiced with corriander" --IPFreely. Nose has lots of corriander, lemon, fruits, alcohol. Flavor is dark fruits, grapey, brown sugar, plum, fig, alcohol. A bit heavy on the alcohol. maybe it just needs to age a bit.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Aroma of the yeast varity. Clody orange body with little to no head. Sweet bitter flavor and bitterness. Usually when a beer taste bitter to me ends up in a bad rating. But this beer was smooth on the palate dispite the bitterness. Decent beer.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2005
