COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Dark Strong Ale Brewed with Candi Sugar, I’m ready for it now.
Evil Urges is a Belgian dark strong ale with a deep dark brown color. A sharp aroma of chocolate and molasses hits the senses, reminiscent of a rich liqueur. Aided by additions of Belgian amber candi sugar, the initial flavors are sweet and malty, with some unique, dark fruit qualities. This full bodied beer is defined by its roast malt character and slight black coffee bitterness that lead into an intense warming finish.

AWISLguy (1518) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle from mikem409, thanks Mike! 10/18/2014 bottle date. Pours very dark, almost black with a tannish head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has molasses and plum and spicey yeast and later some cocoa. Taste is of sweet malts, candied sugar, tangy spices, some bitter cocoa, dark fruits and a bit of something vegetal. Medium bodied with some alcohol. Finishes fairly tangy spicey with a lot of sugar and some fruit in the end. Dubbel-ish, with the darkness, but with a lot of fruit and sugar. Did not love the blend in this one, although it was very different. 13.4

Dark, thick mahogany pour. No head. Aroma of dark fruit, yeast, but not as intense as I’d expected. Flavor is sweeter than typical Belgian strongs, but otherwise fits the style. However, it has a roast malt flavor that distinguishes it a bit from the usual. Good.

Pours dark brown with a decent dark tan, frothy head that has a long lasting lacing. Smells of a belgium ale with a bit of chocolate in it. I sometimes get a whiff of what reminds me of lactose...but might be sugar. First sip, I got chocolate with a harsh burnt coffee at the back. I let it sit for a few and taste changed to a more palatable taste. Dark fruit/raisin, a little sweet and creamy. There still is a burnt malt finish. Better as it warms. Pretty decent overall. Had this in a sampler, so unsure how value.

Bottle. Pour dark brown. Small tan head. Sweet aroma. Flavor is of dark fruits with burnt toffee. Alcohol is quite present. Mouth feel is of the burnt sugars and alcohol. For me there was a bit too much harshness. Overall good beer.

Deep brown pour with red hue, full inch of medium carmel brown head. Sweet bubblegum and banana ester aroma paired with lemon and a hint of clove. Soft carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel with an astringent finish. Belgian yeast taste with the banana and bubblegum esters, plum, definite clove, metallic and ashy astringent flavor on finish. Sweet assertive belgian. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour on tap, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of candi sugar, dark cocoa, some candied raisin, plum, hints of caramelized toffee as well with a hint of yeast. Taste was very sweet plum, candied fruits, dark sugars, some candi sugar into a bit of caramel, toffee, some more almost sweet anise notes, finishing sweet, slightly spicy.
