look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750 ml bottle with red foil

A - Pours a butterscotch orange with golden highlights when held up to the light and a very small white head that disappeared immediately.

S - Sweet and yeasty with spiced fruits and honey. I get plums oranges and apricots along with some tropical fruit. The spice and fruit dominate with a clear alcohol presence. I get slight remembrances of tequila as it warms.

T - Sweet candi sugar, coriander and other spices. The alcohol is also very noticeable in the taste and a little overpowering. Fruity but not as much as the aroma.

M - Full and syrupy with very little carbonation.

D - Not your typical Belgian Strong Pale in my mind. Sweet and fruity with a bog alcohol punch. A heavy dose of coriander when I pour the yeast into my last sip.

Pours golden amber in color with a bit of a chill-haze and a short creamy white head. Nose is coriander and spicy yeast along with fruity alcohol esters and a bit of vanilla bean. Taste begins with sweet bready malts and candied sugar along with coriander and fruity yeast followed by a bit of vanilla extract. Perhaps a bit more coriander and noticeable alcohol than I would have liked, but still quite enjoyable.

Meh. It's not bad, but not good. Pours to a golden yellow color with a slight haze. Not much carbonation apparant, and very little head that settles out to nothing. No subsequent lacing.

The smell is decent. Has a nice spicy nose of coriander, pepper, clove, and candi sugar. Interesting, but a little spicier than I would typically enjoy as well as a little more candied than I prefer. Has a light herbal, grassy hops bouqet as well, if not a bit skunked (damn green bottle).

The taste is very complex. Sweet and candied with a very dry spicy finish. Nice hops bitterness with a grassy herbal flavor. Seems like a little too much at once. Tastes quite strong, but definitely not in the 11% range, so it is "smooth" in that regard. Still not feeling it, especially compared to other AleSmith offerings I've had the pleasure of trying thanks to the generosity of BA dogfooddog.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The beer poured into the chalice crystal clear pale golden with a few particulates and barely any head at all, just a wispy bit of foam at the edges of the surface.

The aroma was sweet with a bit of spice at first. The spice was coriander and pepper and was more pronounced as the beer warmed and it then put off a citrusy character mixed with alcohol.

The flavor was lightly sweet when it first contacted the palate with a citrusy flavor and coriander spice along with a dash of pepper. The citrus was lightly lemony with a pinch of orange. The beer contained a strong presence of alcohol in the flavor and a light bit of caramel coupled with a decent fruit aspect.

The finish was dry with lasting spice and citrus into the aftertaste and beyond. The body was medium with a low carbonation. The alcohol in this puppy was pretty darn high and led to a strong warming after consumption. A fairly easy drinking beer for 11% ABV, but the alcohol could be played down just a smidge.

750 ml crown capped bottle.

Big ol' bottle poured into a gen-u-ywine Duvel glass.

Pours a dark gold--dark even for a Belgian strong--atop which sits a large, white champagne head. Bubbles like champagne, too, where it it keeps going up and up for what seems like forever.

Deep and rich fruits and spices. The spices are standard white pepper, allspice, and clove. The fruit are more green than red--juicy, not overripe. Citrus, melon. There's also heavy notes of alcohol.

Tastes very much like it smells. Starts with big, bold saison fruit--bright green apples, light grapes, dried apricots. That moves in to a more sour middle tasting of pears and green grapes and white wine, and the whole thing ends on a sweet and sour kick of fruit and alcohol.

Were it not for the alcohol weight, I'd think this was a refreshing sports drink. Were it not for yeasty afteraste, I'd think it was fine champagne. It's neither, thank god; instead, it's just a really tasty beer.

This beer pours a golden orange with a white head thats alittle on the small side. The lacing is lacking and the head disappears abit quickly making this Ok looking. The smell is pungent with coriander, candy sugar, and lemon,not bad,but nothing fantastic. The taste is almost thick and creamy with coriander, lemon,wheat,candy sugar, and mixed citrus zest. The m/f is very good with a medium creamy feel and a great mixture of flavors. A good beer that hides the alcohol well,but is lacking in some qualities that make Belgians great.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a capped and foiled 750ml bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours with a somewhat creamy off-white head that is very thin, probably half a finger. It quickly dissipates to a very thin and patch cap of head that leaves minimal lacing on the way down. The beer is orange/honey in color and moderately hazy.

Smell - Not a powerful odor, but some complexities can be detected. You can definitely smell the corriander right away with notes of candied dark ripe fruits. A slight molasses-like sweetness is also present, much richer than the fruit aroma. Herbal and slightly floral hops are balanced with a barely detectable malt character.

Taste - Corriander right off the bat, with strong herbal notes from the hops. The fruits are very sweet and slightly tangy, mainly consisting of the usual Belgian style: figs, raisins, plums, etc. The malt is earthy and rich, with somewhat of a raw character. The finish is actually rather bland compared to the initial taste, with a rising alcohol burn as you swallow. Aftertaste is somewhat sour with sweet fruits and a rich malt background.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied and actually smoother than I expected. The carbonation is just at the right-level for this pale of an ale. (My preference is...the darker the ale, the smoother [lighter] the carbonation, and vice versa.

Drinkability - Strong and spicy alcohol warmth throughout the drinking, but especially at the finish of each sip. At 11% and noticeable, this stuff isn't incredibly drinkable, but decent.

A pretty good little Belgian pale ale. I do like the extra kick of corriander, but I think that this brew has something missing as far as flavor. It is still a tasty brew, though...make no mistake. Recommended.

Poured with absolutely no head whatsoever. Golden brown color with an orange hue. Possesses a spicy orange aroma,with an ethanol presence. Smell is reminiscent of rum. Taste great, orange is prevalent combined with unidentifiable spices ( the bottle says coriander so I'll make note of that even though I cant identify it.) The taste follows up with a light honey touch followed by an alcohol warmth to end it.
Mouthfeel is surprisingly light for such a big beer. Only complaint is the lack of carbonation. Beer is so flat it almost seems like there is something wrong with it. Guess I'll have to pick up another bottle to double check this.
Drinkability is high, I could drink this all night if it wasnt for its alcohol content.
I would recommend it if the carbonation problem is limited to this beer, otherwise it is a major fault in my opinion.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: Pours a thin, white head that quickly recedes to a very slight ring and a small island in the center. The beer is a lighter orange-amber in color when held up to the light.

smell: Moderately sweet candy sugars, lightly toasted and pale Belgian malts, and orangey coriander take the lead. A nice ethanol note is found alongside some herbals (light mint, pineapple sage, thyme...maybe even some distant rosemary) and a hint of dark rum. Pulpy fruits including apricot, peach, banana, kiwi, cherry, pineapple, and coconut are found. Along with the ethanol, a moderate Belgian hop aroma provides a good counter of the big sweetness.

mouthfeel: The carbonation is a low, smooth medium. The body is slick and heavy. Could use either a little more carbonation or a slightly thinner body, but it works out okay.

taste: Sweet, lightly toasted malts upfront with an obvious flavor of coriander...maybe even a little more than I'd like, but not cloying. Nice, slightly toasted malt flavors with big candy sugar. Notes of mushy, overripe tropical fruits and a slight white pepper are found. The papery Belgian hop flavor is light, and gives a lighter bitterness that helps clean up the sweetness a little after the swallow. In the finish, a coriander flavor lingers on the tongue with a sticky malt sweetness and an herbal bread flavor. Ok, the smell was great, and the flavor is good, but it could definately stand to lose a little sweetness. Very close to a 4.5 for taste, but the high sweetness kills some of the complexity for me.

drinkability: The alcohol is very well hidden on both the nose and on the tongue, but the heaviness of the beer limits the drinkability.

Recieved, I think, from Zorro in a trade, probably last fall or winter and cellared since.

When poured into a glass, the color was of a thick, hazy golden yellow, with an orange hue. And there was absolutley no foam what so ever. At first, I could smell spicies and a hint of a yeasty nature. The taste was of spices, but couldn't pick up any yeast taste. This belgium ale is thick, but kind of flat tasting. I like the flavor, but, the flatness is what makes this ale just average instead of upbove average. All in all, it still an enjoyable belgium ale.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours from foiled and capped 750ml a clear medium gold which turns to cloudy (further in to the bottle) with lots of bubbles and a medium sized head of foam that shrank very quickly leaving a fine layer with lacing.

The smell is very lemony and spicy with notes of yeast and a pretty strong nose of alcohol.

The taste, up front, is a very citric bitter/sour with the "mentioned on the label" Coriander and has notes of bread but... it's also very sweet, a Malt Liquor kind of sweetness...my initial impression is that the flavours aren't meshing very well together.

After a few more sips, I'm starting to "see" and appreciate the harmony that *is* actually there and this becomes a fine sipper. The sweetness that I complained about earlier is now well balanced and in fact taken over by the spice and citrus from the hops.

Oh and yes, there's certainly some warming from this 11%abv but Alesmith did a pretty fine job of hiding it. I might have to get some more of this for, what I'm sure will be, the upcoming harsh winter that is due here in Casper.

Bottom line: My initial impression was so-so but the more I sipped on this Belgian Strong Pale Ale, the more it pleased my palate. My hat's off to Alesmith once again!

A - this belgian pours a dark amber in color, with a thin bubly, quickly dispersing head, there is a lot of fast moving carbonation, and though i managed not to pour any, there is a thick layer of sediment in the bottle

S - what a great fresh aroma from this ale, the corainder spiciness really comes through, along with the distinct breadiness and hoppiness i've come to love from quality Belgians

T - danm, this is great, perhaps its the week without a craft talking, but this is really really good, the spiciness is the first note, very tasty and of high quality, the yeasty breadiness gives it great tasting background, and the aftertaste subdues into a nice apple cider flavor

M&D - apart from being nearly thick and tasty, nearly chewy, this beer is warming, it warms the mouth, tongue, throat on the way down, the only drawback is the fizziness, but its so slight it doesnt take anything away from the beer, it upholds Alesmiths reputation handily

Bottle courtesy of Black95tt: Poured a light orangey color ale with a good foamy head with little retention. Aroma of spices is clearly dominating with some traces of the Belgian yeast. The spices that probably include coriander also dominate taste as well as slightly funky yeast, some sweet malt and a light dry finish. Alcohol is well masked which I appreciated but body was a bit too watery for the style.

On tap at the Stuffed Sandwich

A: Vibrant and inviting - the color of orange blossom honey. The white frothy head dissapates fairly quickly, however bubbles continue to float to the top.

S: Floral essences give it a freshness that reminds me of a warm spring day. Hints of rose, camomile and lavender.

T: Very complex, and layered with flavors like vanilla creme, orange, clove, sweet lemon, jasmine, honey and cardamon. The sweetness hits the roof of the mouth in a juicy burst, while a slight bite nips the tip of the tongue. Nicely balanced througout the rush of flavors, with a strong finish.

M: Medium body with a low carbonation.

D: This beer is definately better on tap than it is in the bottle. Very much enjoyable on draft.

A definte split personality. It pours a cloudy yellow with little head...very unimpressive. Smell likewise is a touch of lemon and some subtle yeast...ho hum. Then, the taste kicks in..Jekyll and Hyde for sure! ...a full malty, citrus. smooth experience that must be sampled to be appreciated. The mouthfeel is almost beyond smooth...from front to back palate. For 11 abv this is unbelievably smooth on the drinkability scale. Get past the appearance and smell and experience a truly great brew.

If ever I wanted to demonstrate the importance of appearance this beer would be my subject. Let me say that every Alesmith beer I've tried has been good ... strangely though, the two that had problems were both belgian style beers. It wasn't that they didn't taste good. They both lacked any head, carbonation, lacing and mouthfeel. This one poured like amber diluted with honey. No head, not even a shimmering of bubbles that vanishes instantly. Nothing. No lacing. I am not happy with this pour. I would have given it a 1 if the body didn't look so good. In other circumstances I would ponder as to whether or not I got a bad bottle but since this is the second Alesmith Belgian to appear this way I find that hard to believe. Smell is orangey, with honey and sugary sweetness. Taste is orangey diacetyl mingled with sweet sugary finish. This would be a very good beer if the mouth and appearance were fixed. Instead, mouth is extremely thin and boring. I'd have another, but only to make sure this bottle wasn't a fluke. I'm unhappy with this beer.
Note:
It may seem strange for me to thank Clickpush for this beer since I seemed unhappy with it but this was an extra he threw in out of the kindness of his BA heart. For that, I thank you my friend. I am definitely glad I got to try it.

Pours a dirty blonde leaving a very thin white lace. The aroma is honey, cloves, super sweet "natural honey candy" is what comes to mind. The taste mirrors the nose, very sweet, the alcohal is faint well hidden masking the 11% but warming. As this beer warms a bit candied orange, peach, and caramel all come to mind. The finish is smooth and lite, one that you need to sip and enjoy slowly.

Yeastified ripe pumpkin with butterscotch borders. It's immediately apparent that AleSmith doesn't have the same penchant for carbonation as most Belgian brewers because the head isn't explosive in the least. It's pale orange-tinted alabaster in color and is firmly creamy. No huge frothiness, no Alps-like rockiness, no slathered on Belgian lace. It isn't a bad look, but it can't hold a candle to the best of this style.

I like the nose quite a bit, probably due to the authentic Belgian yeast strain that, according to the brewery, was obtained from a Trappist monastery. Which one, they don't divulge. It may not be quite as complex as some, but makes up for it by being especially aromatic and especially spiced orange fruity. Coriander *and* clove? Very nice.

Although the head wasn't explosive, the beer itself sure is! I'll say one thing for AleSmith beer, like it or not (and I love it), it isn't shy when it comes to flavor delivery. Horny Devil hits the taste buds like a ton of very delicious bricks that are in no hurry to leave. I'm not entirely sure, but I think that I could identify this beer as a non-Belgian BSPA. Something about it is different, though it is very, very good.

For one thing, it's fruitier (oranges and apricots) than usual. For another, it's sweeter than usual. For yet another, the coriander adds a delightful 'other' spiciness that one doesn't usually taste in a beer of this style. Sweet, spicy fruit... all things that I enjoy. Especially when delivered in beer form by one of the best breweries on planet Earth.

Sweet has company. Bitter and sour, in their best Sunday finery and as well-behaved as can be, are present as well. I never doubted the Horny One's desire and I certainly don't doubt her performance, but--initially at least--I doubted her complexity. Now I'm not so sure. As the beer warms, I'm able to appreciate more nuance under all of the bright, bold, palate-crushing flavors. I can't get over how much the coriander adds and wish that other brewers would do something similar with their BSPAs.

I don't doubt the 11%, but man oh man, this has to be one of the most drinkable double digit ABV beers in existence. Some brewers can't mask 7% nearly this well. As I pour all but the final two fingers of beer into my glass (so far), I get loads of dark particles that just have to be coriander-crusted yeast. Even more flavor! Hot damn!

The body is full and lightly syrupy without being overdone. There isn't a great deal of carbonation left--there wasn't an abundance to begin with--though what's present is doing yeoman's work lightening things enough to keep the beer supremely silky in the mouth. Some might find the sweetness and stickiness unbecoming of the style, but I'm not one of them.

This beer is yet another example of the brewing excellence emanating from Southern California in general and AleSmith in particular. Style after style hits the bull right smack dab on the nose and Horny Devil is no exception. After drinking AleSmith beer, I always wish that I had picked up at least a case when I had the chance. That, more than anything else, is the mark of a world-class brewery.

Decanted into a snifter

Appearance: This beer pours a orangeish honeycomb hue with a bubbley slightly off white head. A minimal about of laceing can be found. A nice looking temptation indeed.

Smell: The aromas are honey, mango, wild yeast, green apples and a little sour punch with a nice alcoholic finish.

Taste: The flavors are quite nice. This is like the white wine of beers. Has sourness, fruitiness, floral notes as well a nice malty background followed by a mild hoppiness. Honey, peaches, honeysuckel and a touch of alcohol. Wild yeast is definitely detected. This is delicious!

Mouthfeel: This is full and slick for a Belgium Pale ale. Carbonation is subdued but it is there.

Drinkability: This is a must try if you have not had yet. I would love to have a few of these to devour in a session. Alesmith has become one of my top breweries.

Poured from a 750mL bottle. Pours a honey color, with a thin white head that fades very quickly. Very little visible carbonation.

Smells of cloves, mandarins, honey, and cinnamon.

Tastes of honey, oranges, candy sugar, and finishes with a wash of grapes and cloves. Very, very smooth.

Mouthfeel is silky, smooth, and clean. The finish leaves a slightly herbal tingle in your throat, but overall has little long term effect on the mouth. This makes it frighteningly drinkable for something pushing 11%. Light, smooth, airy and creamy, and non-filling, means you can really get yourself into trouble with this stuff.

cool ass bottle, flashy foil, great silkscreen job.

pours a hazy golden amber, see-thru with sugar-glazed distortion. not much in the way of head here, a constant ring with some floating mold-like islands of dead carb.

big belgian sugar aroma which captures a nice mix of clover honey and fresh, tart apple juice scent. further warming brings hints of thick mango puree and canned pineapple sweetness. a varitable fruit salad in the bspa-insipired nose.

belgian malt bomb is bold and solid in flavor. age has softened it a bit, added some quirks like raw pumpkin flesh and something smoother and phenolic for balance. the coriander is a welcome spice addition but not influential or overwhelming.. perhaps partly lost in the shuffle of a year. mild spice hints add to the earthier side of this brew, which is lacking.

a good sipper. strives to be well rounded, but seems to be on the cusp of age-inspired destruction. don't think this will improve too much further than the 18 months have pushed it. good beer for a u.s., overall iffy for something wrapped up so pretty.

Giving this one another try, want to like it. Let's see how it goes...

750ml bottle purchased from Julio's, Westboro, MA. Red foiled cap, green bottle.

Opened with the teensiest pfft, and microscopic bubbles can be seen in the brew. Not particularly hopeful... Poured into a Rapscallion glass, formed a lazy, big-bubbled yet uneven head above the orangey copper (still apple juice colored) brew. Big bubbles lasting around the edges, but no longer much of a head, with some delicate lacing. Aroma is some spices, with a sweet fruity tinge to it as well. Taste is pervasive spices, with granular sugary malt component coupled to a light fruitiness, and alcoholic close. Mouthfeel and drinkability are still lacking due to low carbonation, but at least this brew was better than my last experience. Guess I won't bother to revisit this again.

Had this one on-tap yesterday, at the source, AleSmith Brewery, doesn't get any better (or fresher) than that! Served in a 12oz plastic cup, it's light yellow-gold with a nice white foamy head and some tell-tale lacing to the end.

The smell is sweet and fruity malt, as a Belgian Trappist smells from it's country of origin, very distinct. Notes of alcohol and a bit of yeast come through, as well.

Fruity, sweet, notes of coriander and yeast, the high-alcohol then rips through and gives the message: danger, high potency, proceed with caution and ENJOY this big a$$ brew.

Good medium body to this lightish looking ale, don't let the looks fool you, or you'll get hurt...11%ABV, I think so. This one surely fits it's style, even though it looks like a Belgian blond, it just tastes like a Strong Belgian brew...period ! Enjoy !

On tap at the brewery, very thin white head with small amount of lace. Tons of spicy phenols and herbs in the Belian aroma. I could smell this all day long. Very tight small bubbles that explode this effervecent aroma. Taste is good a little too much phenols for me but still a good taste. Excellent on the palate wanting more after the crisp finish. Very drinkable brew for this high alcohol brew.

This poured to a nice deep gold with a small head that didn't last long. Lace is minimal.

The smell is nice and strong but coriander and spice are so powerful that nothing else can come through. It doesn't dominate the taste, however. Pale malt, esters, and a bit of alcohol are all present. Spice and coriander come strong in the finish. The mouthfeel is fairly sharp while drinkability is great for the alcoholic content.
