When was the last time you found yourself trapped under the surface of the dark sea, entwined in the tendrils of the unseen forces of nature? With Evil Octopus, a black beer loaded with 8 hop additions (one for each leg of this magnificent beast), taste the inky black goodness that only the mouth of danger can provide, as you and the Evil Octopus mount an attack on your taste buds, coating them with a splash of currant, that heavenly floral aroma, and a 6.2% ABV that reminds you why dressed up like a pirate this morning.

Growler. Aroma: Caramel and chocolate malts, with hints of floral hops. Appearance: Inky black, with thick tan head. Taste: Light-medium sweetness with light bitterness. Very well balanced. Palate: Full body, thick, slick texture, lively carbonation, long finish. Overall: This is a very solid beer. A little hoppy in the finish, but not overwhelming. Very tasty and something that I would seek out again.

Hazy brown pour with creamy off white head. Aroma is light roasted malt and a touch of citrus. Flavor is sweet malt with an almost molasses kicker. A very good resiny-floral bitter finish. Medium body with food carbonation. A rich sweetness that I can’t put my finger on, still an ok drinker

Pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has a bit of chocolate and roast malts. The flavor is very bitter with lots of hop goodness. The finish is dry.

Sometimes I hate character limits. This was a good malty beer, smooth, but with a sourish finish.

Theydon_Bois (14283) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Keg at Flying Saucer, Nashville, 15/02/15. Extremely dark mahogany brown with a decent light tan covering. Nose is charr, spice, biscuit, trace of pine. Taste comprises bitter hops, spice, pine needle, earthy, light cocoa. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Adequate CDA but not one to revisit for me.

wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 24, 2015
Tasted on 1/17/15 on tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark brown with a thick tan head that leaves average sticky lace. The nose is molasses, coffee, and pine resin hops, some dark bread. The flavor is a touch of molasses bread up front, moving to the nice resin and coffee bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long bitter resin and roasted coffee finish.

Smoothest IBA I have ever had the pleasure of tasting! Coffee notes aren’t too heavy, floral aroma is perfectly blended with the roasty malts and extra hop addition!

drowland (7112) - Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
On tap at Flying Saucer Nashville, June 2014. Dark brown pour, almost black, nice tan head, good lacing. Whoaaaa, way too much floral or orange aspect or something... smells like very fragrant cheap hotel soap, no joke. Mrs. Owl wouldn’t even drink it. It’s in the flavor as well, way too strong. Otherwise hints at some roast and chocolate. Gross.
