COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Certified Evil is an undomesticated beast. A dark, ominous and oak aged creation, its aggressive hops battle its massive malt profile, flavor assaulting all those who bear witness.
Malt beverage brewed with brown sugar, raisin juice, molasses, cardamom and orange peel and aged in wine casks.
The new Certified Evil recipe is more complex and interesting than the brew from 2008. This new beer blends Certified Evil aged in Cabernet barrels for one year with a younger batch of oaked aged Certified Evil. The combination makes for a vibrant yet smooth and elegant taste. The recipe also includes a wide variety of complex sugars including turbinado sugar, molasses and honey. The result is an amazingly complex beer. Truly a must try to any craft beer lover.

Indra (2657) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12oz. bottle. Aroma of roasty, black malts, mildly sweet and faintly tart with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruit, orange peel and tinges of the wine barrel as well, with faint oak, red grape, black cherry and a touch of fall spice in the background. Solid-looking opaque black in color, with a lasting, creamy, tan head and spots of lace. Flavor profile is darkly sweet, fruity, mildly winey and full of chocolate, with suggestions of smoke, wood, raisin, faintly spicy hop flavors and some mild bitterness and alcohol appearing towards the finish. Mouthfeel is smoothly effervescent, warming and semi-dry, with a properly full body. Rather nice. Doesnít seem evil...

Smooth yet complex flavor. Smells and tastes of molasses with cardamom very present in the finish. Well worth a taste! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What a bizarre beer. Its a super dark brown color, light brown head. Flavors? All over the map Roasted malt, vinous tart flavors, browed butter, charred oak, ash...hard to wrap my head around this beer.

nealblind (915) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Very dark pour some tan head. Aroma of leather, long pepper, malt toffee, lactic, caramel, raisins. Tastes strongly of raisins, tobacco, dairy product. Some buttery acidity like wine from the barrels. Some smoke flavor. Mid-light mouthfeel for a dark beer. Spice from the oak . This definitely is a half beer half wine. the orange peel and cardamom donít make it through all the other components which is okay from an already very complex brew.

DiarmaidBHK (3558) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Draft at JL Beers Fargo. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Doesnít leave much lacing. Slight red wine note on the nose. Thereís charcoal and kool aid on the tongue. A bit watery in the tongue. Hides itís alcohol well. Unfortunately it doesnít hide itís dreadful taste.

notalush (4994) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 10, 2013
I have no idea if I am putting this rating in the right place, but the bottle looks the same and everyone else seems to be putting their ratings here, so... - black pour - minimal lace - has some tart and tannic notes in the nose that are decent, but there are also strong aromas of DMS/boiled cabbage, burnt popcorn, char - flavor is sweet chocolate up front, as well as mild roast and smoke - later flavors of burnt popcorn, light DMS, light copper, mild tartness - overall messy and confusing - their lager was terrible and this isnít all that good (although I likely wonít pour it down the drain like I did the lager) - I have one more beer from this brewery to try - I am not looking forward to it.
