  • From a four year old bottle.

    Pours clear but with a ton of small particulate floating throughout. Foam is minimal as is the amount of retention.

    Aroma is big on the alcohol. Lots of caramel, grain, and toast malt scents. The malt leans towards sweet overall (my first overall impression). Dark fruit, maybe plum.

    Taste of plum up front, lingering throughout. Caramel, toast, and grain comes through but is light, especially compared with the aroma. Bitterness in the finish, more due to the alcohol.

    Big mouth feel with mild carbonation. Surprisingly doesn't dry the palate but leaves a helping of sweetness.

    The beer is too sweet for the style. Being a big Belgian pale ale, I don't feel there should be a huge amount of sweetness. A little disappointed in the beer. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • 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.
