COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Dark Strong Ale Brewed with Candi Sugar, Iím 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.

One of the best labels ever. Extra from flandersned. Deep brown. Nose of banana, caramel. Leads a bit sweet, ton of overripe banana flavor, finishes dry. Not as round in body as I expected.

first impression is that it was surprisingly dark - i suppose too many pale ales will ruin your expectations of new brews, especially if you donít read the label, but i was not anticipating the choco-caramel forward aroma. some alcohol heat presents as it evaporates out of the glass it is poured into, and itís a nice dubbel-looking bee. some hops bitterness arrives with a small punch but it does eventually melt into a mocha caramel dissipation. nice beer but the price tag of $3.99 (12 oz bottle retail) wonít likely result in a return visit.

Sampler on draft. Pours dark brown to black with a fluffy mocha head that leaves a thick wall of foamy lace. Nose involves some soapiness, some pine and citrus notes, roasted malt, and some spice. Decently sweet, fairly tart, fairly bitter. Fuller body, creamy, soft carb, with a long banana spiced dough finish. Cool brew, nice balance of elements.

Bottle thanks to Daniel! Pours a near black with a bubbly brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of roasted malts and a bit of coffee backed by dark bread and a hint of candied sugar. Flavor has musty dark grains and musty roasted malts with some candied sugar and a hint of earthy moss.

I love this style and I love this beer...huge fruit, candied malt along with a spicy presence lend a very complex flavor profile that is well balanced as well. I like that freaky sad looking (and likely sadistic) kitty on the label too.

Dryer and roastier dubbel type beer. Still fruity and spicy but it is malt dominant.

This one poured a darker red to brown color with an off white head. Aroma was of dark fruites, burnt sugar, roast, and smoe. Flavor was fairly sweet, prune like, with a big roasted finihs. Interesting stuff.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2013
On-tap for $6.25 (or $6) a pint at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. Appearance: Black. Maybe half a finger of a tan head, if that. This thingís ABV is pretty high, so I wasnít expecting much of a head, but that just meant more beer in the glass. There was spotty lacing for a little while, but there was nothing after that. The appearance isnít its high point... unless youíre talking about the label. One of the best around! Smell: Dark fruit. Some roastiness. Maybe a tinge of alcohol. I havenít had many of the style, but man, it smells nice. Changes with every whiff you take. Taste/feel: Super solid, enjoyable beer. Like the smell, dark fruit. The roastiness isnít as prominent, but this is a fairly sweet beer. The medium sort of mouth feel with the carbonation it has keeps it from being syrupy/overly sweet though, which is great. This has that apple skin aroma that I sort of associate with quite a few Belgian beers, with a nice amount of dark fruit, and subtle roast. Incredibly tasty beer. Another winner from Shortís. Glad to have tried it, and you should try it yourself.
