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.

kerenmk (4225) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 3, 2016
On tap at Flying Saucer, Nashville, TN, 4.5.16. Black. Roasty aroma with lots of chocolate milk and cocoa nibs. Bitter, roasty and chocolatey taste. Medium-to-full body, roasty, and bitter but only slightly hoppy finish. Nice but more stout than an IBA.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2015
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
