COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Decadent Evil is brewed as a Belgian Style Golden Strong ale. Decadent Evil pours a brilliant gold color with floral aromas and flavors reminiscent of caramel and honey with a slightly spicy finish. We used local organic pomegranate honey in a secondary fermentation. This beer originally debuted as part of the 2009 Collaborative Evil GABF project.

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The look is golden in color, whitish head, and clear. The smell is sweet, bananas, fruits, and ok. The taste is very fruity, sweet, alcohol, and just eh.

Bomber from 2010 - thanks, family! Had high hopes for this one, but the best I can say is that I let it age too long. Clearish apple juice pour, minimal bubbles and a watery consistency. Strong sweet malts and spicy yeast in the nose. Taste was considerably more fruity than expected (apple juice for sure here), and with the washed-out quality it came across as a merely decent BSA.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul! The beer is golden hued with a small white head that leaves faint traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma brings herbal and floral notes, with additional scents of alcohol and a subtle yeast character. This beer is overly sweet, with alcohol too prominent. The body is thin, and overall, this was pretty tough to drink. It wasn’t horrible, but I didn’t particularly enjoy it either. Nothing about this brew really embraced the Belgian style to me. Yeast character was subdued, and the alcoholic sweetness was just overpowering. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-30-2011

Hazy gold beer. No head. Smooth palate but with a carbonated bite in the tail. Honey like light malt with a trace of orange fruits. Pinch of pepper. Finishes silky smooth. Nice easy drinking Belgian.

Bottled. A dark golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and fruits mainly grapefruits, leading to a lightly bitter finish.

Bottle courtesy of Lunch. Served in a SAVOR snifter. Pours a clear golden yellow color with a small white head that doesn’t really leave any lace or anything like that behind. The nose brings some light bready character along with some really faint yeast character -- there’s a very light bit of earthiness and some pepper, but those were very difficult to pick out. The flavor was the same way. I got a bit of bread and grain, but no real yeast character. Some continental hops. Light body and fairly crisp. Dry finish. Nothing really Belgian about this beer.

Bottle. [can’t remember who traded me this... sorry]
Pours clear golden with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma has flowers, light oxidation, banana, green apples, light vinious. Medium, prickly carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit sharp vinious, banana esters, green apple, a bit og gingery pepper. The alcohol might be a bit to present, otherwise an okay Belgian blonde.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2011
Cloudy pale hazy pour. Thick white head. The nose is a little bit bretty almost. Softly fruity with a kiss of pine as well. There is an unusual sort of tartness on the back - odd in a beer this size, but it kind of works. Softly berryish with a touch of malty sweetness. Berries, sweet malt and a little bit of unusual dustiness. It’s pretty tasty, really.

22oz bottle from K&L. Pours a cloudy deep golden color with a one-finger white head. The aroma is very sweet with pale malt and honey as well as a light fruit presence. The flavor has very sweet honeyish pale malt, peach, citrus, and spice. Fairly syrupy on the palate with medium carbonation. Pretty nice beer but not terribly well-balanced and cohesive.
