  • Pours opaque. Small floating particulate. Half inch of mocha foam. Better than average retention. Lacing exists: thin, spotty.

    Aroma is dark fruit, alcohol and candy sugar sweetness. Alcohol twinges the nose on deep wafts. Light earth musk. Chocolate.

    Taste is chocolate malt up front. Middle bring candy sugar and dark fruit. End brings a lingering alcohol.

    Body is rather big but not large. Medium carbonation, at best. Creamy. Big alcohol. Lingers but is cut by sweetness and bitter side.

    The alcohol keeps this beer from being easily drinkable, surprising for a beer under 9%. Definitely needs to mellow. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • 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.
