AleSmith Horny Devil

Thanks to Rustydiamond for sharing his recent South Bay Drugs shipment and allowing me to piggyback on his order. 750 mL capped bottle with some thick, red foil on the neck.
Poured this bad boy into the Duvel tulip. Golden body with a decent head. The head was not huge, nor did it last a long time or produce much lace, but considering the ABV not that surprising. ABV means I still score it high for look.
Aroma and taste match very well. Belgian yeast notes, candied sugar, alcohol and spice. A touch of citrus and a sweetness that is really quite high – luckily I love that. Alcohol is superbly balanced. It kicks in and does the job, but is VERY balanced considering the 11%. Very well made brew. Coriander is beautifully balanced and gives a sweet and sour effect to the brew.
A special beer. Hits a number of my sweet spots. It won’t be for everyone, but for me this is close to perfect.
