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.

Dark brown, nearly black; sparse light tan head. Aromas of sweet roasted coffee, malt, spice and a touch of chocolate. Taste is pretty sweet, though not in a negative way; plenty of balancing bitterness. Palate is full bodied, texture is oily/creamy; carbonation is average; finish is long with roasted, bitter coffee, sweetness and warming alcohol. Perhaps a slight touch of winter spices. Overall I like this beer quite a bit; the best offering from Shorts that I have had.

Pailhead (6248) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2015
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, molasses, and dark fruits. It’s a dark with some faint orange highlights and a small khaki head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, lighter molasses, and dark fruits. There is some candi sugar in the middle. The finish has light grape, spice, and alcohol. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, the alcohol is a little too prevalent in this one.
