Pub Brew. Bourbon Evil Urges is a bourbon barrel aged Belgian dark strong ale. A sharp aroma of chocolate and molasses hits the senses, reminiscent of a rich liqueur. Aided by additions of Belgian amber candy sugar, the initial flavors are sweet and malty, with some unique, dark fruit qualities. This beer is full bodied with an intense warming finish.

TheAlum (6428) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Draft on tap at Great Taste of the Midwest 2015 (MadisonN WI). Pours a a nice brownish ruby hazy pour. Darker reddish glow, opaque body with firmer frothy brownish head atop. A nice layer, solid lacing as a mellow film and thicker ringer. Aromas are a bit toasty, dry and carmelized with candi sugar, spirit and bourbon meet toffee, toast, dried dark fruit, Belgian yeast and a bit of dark fruit. Initial is medium bodied, a bit warm and toasty with biscuits, caramel and oak. A bit of spice, whiskey and candi sugar. Earth, toast and biscuit meet subtle vanilla, warming bourbon. Backend is lots of dark and dried fruit, raisin and plum, some toasty malts and earth, subtle vanilla and a jab of chocolate at times. Toasty, some toasty biscuity carmelized and dark fruit life, subtle spice. A fun beer that incorporates the flavors nicely, barrel on point, a touch sweet.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Tap @ Shorts: Deep, swampy brown, essentially no head when this one arrives at the table. Sweet, warm aroma. Toffee, bourbon, dominant Candi sugar coated prunes, faint residual brown sugar. The taste is great, even better than the aroma. Graham cracker & maple syrup glaze spread over a bed of candied raisins & prunes. Mild bourbon, wood & vanilla from barrel aging, but only a supporting role. Finishes with ever so slightly tart dark fruits coating the palate. A great beer & a nice surprise.

On tap at the anniversary party. This one kind of surprised me. Pours an interesting dark color. A lot of dark fruit flavors. Black cherry supporting a lot of it. A unique cookie type feel and sweetness. Pretty good stuff.

4oz on tap at HopCat East Lansing during the Shorts tap takeover. Sampled straight after trying the base beer. Dark brown color. Thin off-white brown head. Nice dots of lace. Light smooth carbonation. Bigger sweet taste, light spice, some tannin. Dark chocolate, some spice, dark fruit. Complex, but spicy flavor. Solid barrel aged darker beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Almost black reddish pour. Aroma of malt and hops accented by bourbon. Roasted malt notes with a exquisite bourbon finish. Excellent Belgian.
