Notes/Commercial Description:
Certified Evil is the result of a 2008 collaboration project with Todd Ashman of Fifty Fifty Brewing in Truckee, California and Matt Van Wyk of Oakshire Brewing in Eugene, Oregon. Each brewer set out to create a dark Belgian strong ale with their own unique spin on the style. Since the first collaboration, six new breweries have been added to the project to invent a truly unique beer. This beer is properly named Certified Evil.
The new Certified Evil recipe is more complex and interesting than the brew from 2008. This new beer blends Certified Evil aged in Cabernet barrels for one year with a younger batch of oaked aged Certified Evil. The combination makes for a vibrant yet smooth and elegant taste. The recipe also includes a wide variety of complex sugars including turbinado sugar, molasses and honey. The result is an amazingly complex beer. Truly a must try to any craft beer lover.

3.59/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into an Achel Trappist glass (since there is a picture of a Trappist looking glass on the label). Per the label, “malt beverage brewed with brown sugar, raisin juice, molasses, cardamom and orange peel and aged in wine casks. I’m expecting some kind of BSDish type thing.

Appearance: Poured straight down the middle produced a finger of dark khaki head. Black body with brown highlights. Nice lacing with a persistent ring of head.

Aroma: Up front a huge note of roasted, dark barley. Like a nutty chocolate. Muddled notes of stone fruit, maybe some citrus, and brown sugar in the middle. Some grassy hops in the finish. The highlight here are the porteresque notes of roasted malts with that hoppy finish. No wine barrel, and some fruity, sweet confusion in the middle.

Taste: Starts with the nice roasted chocolaty malts. Some raw oak and vanilla in the middle. Finishes with a pleasant hoppy bite. There is some kind of raisiny, fruity thing in the finish, but you have to look for it. Leaves you wanting something more.

Mouthfeel: Thin/medium mouthfeel. Smooth. Slightly drying. Warming on the finish.

Overall: I mean, it’s a solid porter type beer, but it’s hard to get any of the adjuncts mentioned on the label. Was there like one wine barrel used in the final blend? I’m not sure a porter was the best style of beer in which to use some of the adjuncts mentioned. It’s a fun idea, but I think this recipe could use some work. No Belgian yeast was detected. I think the recipe might have changed from what is in the description on this page.

*At a little bit below room temp more of the brown sugar, raisins, and barrel came out. Drink this at cellar temp.

Sampling right now on 1/12/14. Had this once before over a year ago. From a local brewery that is less than 15 miles form the house. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner 'pool ball' glass-Black 8 ball. LOTS of sediment left in the bottom of the bottle when poured.

Pours actually a pitch black in color with a very thin beige head. Some streaky lacing is seen with each sip. The aroma is complex with dark roasted malts, dark fruit with a hint of molasses. Like a mix between a Stout & a Porter. Lots going on with the taste and YOU don't taste the higher alcohol content at all. I am sure this one would sneak up on you fast if you had a few of these. Hard to describe the taste BUT is pleasant. Actually goes down easy with no harsh or bitter aftertaste.

3.6/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a coffee brown color with a modest but splashy beige head that leaves a surprising amount of lacing

Smell: Beefy and vinous, with roasted meat, red wine grapes, citrus peel and herbal elements

Taste: Vinous at the outset, with red wine grapes and citrus peel flavors jutting forward; a growing sourness develops, in the middle, along with a beefy Bovril aspect; quite sour, in the finish, too

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; puckery

Overall: I have cellared this bottle for several years and I am guessing that the sourness may not be what was intended here; still, I find that the flavors I am detecting tend to clash rather than complement one another

The Certified evil came out of a nitro tap and was served in a pint glass. Solid black in colour and had a dark brown foam lingering on top. Smelled malty and of roasty grains, and tasted just like a malty porter. The alcohol content can really be tasted in this ale. Bitter roasted grains and hops lingered on into the aftertaste, including a distinct oakiness and a slightly sour mid-body. Complex and fun to drink.

Would I buy this beer again? Maybe.

3.74/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into glass.

Appearance: Near black with nice tan head.

Smell: Molasses, honey, ripe dark fruit, chocolate and licorice.

Taste: Seems almost like a Stout at first, with chocolate and molasses leading the way. Then it gets a lot fruiter with ripe plums, raisins, dates, and licorice. Some oak, honey and light spiciness on the finish, but the ripe fruit comes through stronger.

Feel: Thick, chewy body that could use a lighter touch or some more dryness. Maybe more honey was needed to lighten and dry out the finish.

Overall: Interesting combination of a Stout and a Dark Belgian Ale. Happy to have tried it, but a little too much ripe fruit sweetness for the beer to gel as well as I had hoped.

4.15/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pitch black body with a one finger frothy brown head.

Aroma: If I didn't know better I'd think this was a Porter or Stout. The chocolate malt and near coffee-like aroma suggests a different style. However, the signature fruit esters of belgian yeast are there underneath it all. A touch of vinegar as well.

Taste: Definitely an interesting flavor combining both Imperial Stout and Belgian Ale styles. Starts with dark malt flavor (almost a belgian candi syrup) that stays very light by not contributing any bitterness. There is also a light grassy hop character that fits in well with the flavor complexion. Flavors of pear, green apple, and fig compliment the dark malt nicely. Then the flavor shifts in an interesting way giving bitter dark chocolate and roasted malt flavor during the finish and lingering in the aftertaste. An interesting hint of vinegar long after the finish that adds to the overall mystery of what this beer was intended to be. In true Belgian fashion the 9.6% ABV is very difficult to locate in the flavor.

Mouthfeel: Between medium and full in body with effervescence that gets close to usual Belgian levels but not quite as overly fizzy. Average drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Lucky Bucket's Certified Evil is definitely not your typical Belgian Strong Dark Ale. It has a mix of both Belgian and Stout influences that combine for a pretty good beer. If you like either of the styles mentioned above then give it a try if you come across it. Would I drink it again? Sure, not seeking it out though.

this beer is a freak. huge huge huge. it pours thick and dark, more like an American stout than anything Belgian, sludgy looking too, viscous. a few inches of tan head last the while glass. the nose is a little confusing, the dark malts are front and center no doubt, there is some dark chocolate and molasses sweetness in here too, and some sort of interesting yeast that doesn't ring the Belgian bell to me, but perhaps this is classified incorrectly. the chocolate flavors really expand as it drinks, not sweet chocolate, but that bitter dry raw cocoa that so many beers strive for but few attain. some real nice oak in the finish, not wine or bourbon or anything, just wood. the alcohol is amazingly well hidden, and I unfortunately consumed this like it was in the 5% to 6% abv range, and it definitely got me humming. super smooth in texture, glides right down the throat effortlessly, no burn at all, and the huge body somehow satisfies me, like a milkshake or something. good thing this beer doesn't come in milkshake sizes. overall an impressive offering from lucky bucket, far superior to their wheat. looking forward to finding more of their beers, this one is profound.

My past experience with Lucky Bucket was not too exciting. This beer is excititng? Is this a quality beer? I think so. Do i like this bitter brew? Not really. I like maltier sweetness. However, this beer looks nice and has a nice faint aroma.

The flavor is quite complex and ends bitterly on the palate. Let's transitions into . It's really fizzy. That may be a benefit.

Poured bottle into a tulip glass

A- Looks nice and dark, a promising opacity

S- A lot of malt, some sweetness, a little heat ( alcohol ) a little hop

T- Not what I expected, astringent, alcohol, bitter, did not get the sweetness that I smelled and that I expected from color. too much going on in here without enough balance.

M- Overly carbonated, made the astringency burst. when the carbo dies down its got a decent feel

O- I had heard some good things about this beer, and I was a little disappointed, too much going on and the flavors did not go well together for me.

I had this last night with a friend. It poured a dark brown almost black color with thin to medium viscosity. The scent was that of a typical strong ale of its kind. It had a very complex flavor, which i found to be unappealing. There was too low of an attenuation with this one, I do not feel the sweetness complimented the very smoky flavor. The hops also seemed to clash. Overall i found this to be very unbalanced on the palate. Sure it looks pretty, nice lacing, mouth feel and color. However the overall flavor profile suggested bitter sweet maple bacon. the aftertaste lingered for awhile, and left me feeling unimpressed.

Lucky Bucket "Certified Evil"
12 oz., no apparent freshness date

Woah! I was told this was a Belgian golden strong ale but I was misled! Let me take a look at the label... ... ... "a dark, ominous and oak aged creation..." - well that's just my style :) Let's see...

It pours an opaque black body beneath a dark-tan, chocolate head that drops shortly and leaves little lace behind. Hmmm, that could be disappointing... I'd like to see a better head on it.

There's chocolate in the aroma, and a little bit of fruit: cherry, apple, and perhaps date; all atop a solidly dark-chocolate maltiness that's sprinkled with coffee-like roastiness and cocoa.

Quite often, the flavor of most beers simply mimic the aroma, and that's the case here except that it's amplified - this is one rich beer! Fortunately, it's not overdone. It teems with dark malt chocolate and near-coffee, but it doesn't become overpowering - perhaps because the malt base is kept in check: it's medium-full / full-medium in body but still fermented through, and dry. It delivers a little bit of yeast in the nose, along with and followed by the roasted coffee and dark chocolate notes that are slightly accented by a light sugary note. Hops work their way in, but they can gain only equal footing at best, mainly appearing across the middle and then mostly in the finish, which is dry, chocolatey, woody, somewhat roasty, and threaded through with bright red berries and a gently vinous note. Wow! Nice finish - this is where it's complexity lies. As it fades, it becomes darkly bitter and acidic, showing a lot of its oak, but also brightened by its fruitiness (which saves it from going too far to the dry side).

An impressive strong dark beer that packs a whollop! I'd suggest you let it warm up slightly to get the most out of it.

Pitch black beer that appropriately represents the darkness of Evil. CE has a single tone tan head that drops rather quickly. Chocolate, light burnt roast and spice in the nose. Nose is not assertive but that could be the fan in the bar. Flavor jumps out strong with a heavy burnt chocolate and malt taste with earthy hops spreading along the side of the tongue.

The beer lingers nicely and has a bit of a punch, betrayed by the light legs on the side of the footed glass from the 9.1% alcohol. Very good beer and is better on site than the bottles I've tried in the past. Fine beer to be the top of the line for Lucky Bucket.

Thanks to Benny for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and citrus zest. Taste is much the same with a mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

This beer is odd. not bad, just different. smells of smokey sweet bbq... thats right bbq. which automatically make me LOVEIT! tastes salty with hints of wine and smoke. minor bittersweet chocolate. very heavey flavor, definatley one to sip but for the 9.6 % alcohol the booziness is well masked. this is just one you gotta try if you love beer like me!

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Harriet tulip.

Opaque bistre body with a dark tan head - short but creamy and lasting; pasty lacing, superior retention.

Sour nose with burnt sugar and roast malt in the nose. The oak aging overwhelms the base malt, adding tart vinuous flavors throughout. Mild bitterness...hints of stewed fruit and (noble?) hops. Finishes tart and somewhat smokey.

Medium-full bodied, effervescent, and chewy mouthfeel.

I wasn't expecting a "sour," though this crosses into that territory. Complex, but maybe more interesting than pleasant.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a very dark brown with a tinge of red. Large very light brown head sits atop it. Fades slowly, leaving nice lacing behind on the glass. An island of foam permanently resides in the brew.

S: Very malty. Lots of caramel and raisin. There is some leather and ginger too - maybe cinnamon. Almost like a gingerbread cookie. Smells a little like wine too. Odd combination of aromas that's for sure. Not a bad combination, I enjoyed it!

T: Lots of wine, almost to the point of being sour. Some oak. Heavy leather mixed with some caramel, molasses, raisin and brown sugar. Spices linger in the aftertaste, mostly ginger again.

M: Pretty heavy as expected for the ABV.

O: One of the most unique brews I've had. Crazy variety of flavors that honestly do not meld that well. Regardless, it is heavy, complex and the flavors are balanced well, despite everything. It's kinda like drinking a wine barrel aged winter warmer with a belgian twist. How do you ever categorize that?

A - Pours a murky brown color; looks totally opaque black in the glass. One finger of fizzy tan head that slowly recedes leaving decent bubbles and lacing.

T - Oak barrel notes, malt, some smoky char flavors. Cardamon and buttery clove. Mehh.

M - Decent carbonation. Alcohol is present but not overpowering.

O - Meh. A far cry from the top tier belgian dark ales (e.g. any Chimay or Delirium) but it's not terrible either. Won't be busting down the doors of my local shop to get any more though.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours an almost opaque mahogany/dark brown. The beer seems to be pretty murky. There is a half finger of tan head that goes away completely.

Smell: Very malt forward with some dark fruit like sweetness. I'm also picking up a slightly tart fruit note. The grain is the dominant smell here.

Taste: Lots of peppery oak along with a tartness that I'm not 100% sure was intentional. Malt makes its presence known, but it isn't very sweet. The finish has a tart bitterness to it that I'm not really digging.

Mouthfeel: The body is just on the thick side of medium with very aggressive carbonation. The finish is very dry which seems to be fitting with the strong oak presence.

Overall: Not a very good beer. The flavors that were there just didn't mix very well for me.

Poured black, opaque with a thin khaki head that left eminent lacing. Smell is of semisweet chocolate, sour cherry cordials, herbal hop. Taste is all over, roasted chocolaty malt, lactose, vinous, grassy/herbal hop, subtle milk chocolate, slightly sweet. Finished a little bit sour and astringent. No notice of the ABV. Body is fairly light, mouthfeel hints at being creamy but is certainly lighter than expected. Overall it's got a broad mix of flavors, as i think the label hints at. I don't find it to be overly imposing or big. Decent enough and I'll enjoy the other three bottles.

Poured into a tulip.

A- Lemony, slight roast character.

A- Pure black with a this off white head.

F- Lots going on here. Its hard for my palate to separate this out. I do appreciate some roasty, mildly astringent flavors up front. Not fruity at all. Perhaps a little pepper flavor. No hot alcohol or solvent flavors.

M- Lots of body with a gentle carbonation that helps lighten it up slightly in the end. Overall pretty light given how big a beer this is.

O- A interesting beer. There's a lot going on here. I don't taste the fruit notes I associate with a belgian yeast. I'm not that well versed in this style, which seems to have a pretty broad definition. I do like the beer. To me it's definitely a sipper, probably a good thing due to the ABV.

M- A little to much carbonation here, I think. Overall though a good mouthfeel, everything esle going on keep this @ a 4.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Pours dark brown with two fingers of airy light tan head. Decent retention and some lacing.

S - I swear the first aroma I got after pouring this was similar to those Wet Ones wipes, kind of soapy and chemical. Luckily, subsequent whiffs are more promising. Some raisin and plum, and herbal hop presence. Maybe some chocolate and wine. There is a lot going on, but it never really came together for me.

T - Again, many elements of a BSDA, but with an herbal hop presence, some wine, and a faint tartness. Not sure if this is in the early stages of infection, or just odd. I wish there was a little less acidity to let the fruits and chocolate shine through. Finishes with some hop bitterness. Not sure what to think of this. It seemed like after each sip I was pretty sure I didn't want any more, then a few seconds later I was intrigued enough to go back for more. Does that mean I like it? I can't seem to convince myself of that. Still, while it is not particularly appealing, it isn't bad tasting either.

M - Medium mouthfeel with some tartness and a somewhat bitter, dry finish. Seemed a little thinner than it should have been.

O - Points for originality, and some good things going on, but can't see myself wanting this again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Opaque black pour from a 12 oz bottle. Full finger's worth of head is short lived but yields some clumpy patches and stringy lacing.

Smells of raisins and prune juice, coffee, and berries, which I can only assume is imparted by the wine barrel. Cardamom was evident immediately upon opening the bottle, but is swarmed under once this beer hits the glass.

In a word: different. Swirled on the tongue, the vinous tingle of red wine is prickly and washes over the palate. Tart berries, coffee, raisin, pruney malt driven surprise. Hops dance along in a rag tag procession. Really an odd mish mash of flavors and ingredients. Yeast is present but understated, which is most definitely appreciated by this guy since big yeasty flavors are the gross.

Finishes dry with really no hint of alcohol.

Overall, this was an oddly enjoyable beer that seemed to evolve and encourage further exploration. Appreciative of my boy steepH20 for tossing this in my bag on the way out the door after our last visit.

This is one of the most flavorful and potent beers I have enjoyed on a regular basis. I was lucky enough to win 24 of these at a fund raising auction not realizing how special the brew was.

It is incredibly dark and rich. The beer lives up to its name. Do not drink it and then expect to enjoy any other beers without a thorough cleaning of the palette. It overwhelms the senses with a full flavored beginning and a hoppy finish. It's hard to describe. It's not nutty or malty, but it's huge.
