This is the AleSmith incarnation of a Belgian Strong Ale. 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. Belgian ale lovers around the world have raved about Horny Devil, and you will too. Bright straw/light yellow color and good head formation and retention when properly served. Appealing Brussels lace.
Horny Devil is a classic compliment to steamed mussels in broth.
A West Coast style barleywine. A huge malt profile and a very aggressive dose of premium domestic hops give Old Numbskull a tantalizing complexity, from the aroma to the aftertaste. Aroma starts with toasty, caramel notes and a pleasant hop character. Color is deep amber, with tan head and impressive 'Brussels Lace' that clings to the sides of the glass.
Old Numbskull is outstanding with rich desserts such as custard or crème brûlée. Also excellent with a strong, Cuban cigar, or on its own as a digestif.
Allagash Confluence Ale is created with a mixed fermentation; utilizing our house primary Belgian style yeast in combination with our proprietary Brettanomyces strain. The two yeast strains work in tandem creating a marriage between spice and fruit flavors that ultimately leave a lingering silky mouth feel.

The Victor Ale was inspired by its feminine-named predecessor, the Victoria Ale. The Victor Ale is copper colored ale with a wine yeast influence. With chardonnay grapes to make the Victoria Ale unique, our brewers decided to use red chancellor grapes for the Victor. Over one hundred pounds of chancellor grapes were crushed on site and added directly to the mash. In addition to a generous portion of Pilsner malt, Victor is hopped with Fuggles and Hallertau and fermented with a wine yeast strain.
To create our unique, Belgian-style Victoria Ale, the brewers drew on references to Bacchus, the Thracian god of wine, in the history and artwork of the Victoria Mansion as inspiration for this new beer. One hundred and fifty pounds of Chardonnay grapes were brought in, crushed on site and added directly to the mash.
The vinous characteristics of this beer serve as a nice accent to smoked salmon, as well as Stilton cheese. Mussels are also an excellent accompaniment to this beer.

Inspired by Northern California's brewing history, this California Bitter is as inviting as the Redwoods.
Smooth and drinkable, this ale has a well rounded malt character accented by Cascade and Centennial dry hops.
This is a full bodied beer using American grains. The goal was to create a base for showing off the unique floral qualities of two Pacific Northwest hops, Columbus and Cascade. Columbus is a new hybrid High Alpha Acid hop used mostly for bittering, but used heavily as an aromatic in this bold brew. Cascade is the balance that ties the malt and bittering hops together. It is a true specialty ale and is our brewer's statement on this style.
It's said in jest that the Scots like a drink. Put aside those clumsy "comedy" stereotypes for a second, and you'll find that our love of good beer is a more considered affair. Belhaven Scottish Ale is a fine example of this appreciation. This classic 3.9% strength Scottish ale is a real old timer, having been brewed at Belhaven longer that any other beer. Its sweet ruby mix of malt and hops pampers and primes the palate, preparing you for a smooth creamy finish. It's a carefully crafted ale to make our nation swell with pride.
Game birds, lamb and roast pork are ideal food pairings for this Scottish Ale.
We reckon this is the porter equivalent of the tall dark handsome stranger, but with its blend of triple malts, roasted chocolate flavour and hop character, once you've tried this deluxe stout you'll want to get reacquainted.
