Poured into a tulip glass. Had at Lord Hobo.

Appearance: dark red-brown in color, clear, 3/4 inch head that goes quick, medium carbonation

Smell: plum, date, and dark fruit

Taste: cinnamon, date, dark fruit--berries, lots of brown sugar, and light flavors of dark bread

Mouthfeel: very sweet with a touch of bitterness, low carbonation, heavy bodied

Overall: This is my new favorite in this style. It tastes like a great quad with very pronounced flavors. Nice and complex. Up there with the best Shorts beers I have had. Marked to style, but this one would still be in the 4 range for me.

So it's called Evil Urges, yet it has a picture of a cute little kitty on the label... Anyway, this dang sucker definitely reminds Raul of a vindictive ex - but lets not go there.

So I smelled it, and I sipped it, and I drank it...and I basically "aited" it. This beer definitely isn't going to make you wanna call your grandmama and tell her all about your Evil Urges. It's just kind of there; like all those rock candies stuck together in that glass victorian bowl at said grandmama's house.

Smells ok, tastes ok, but it lacks depth.

Why I spent three years with ya girl, I will never know. But Evil Urges, I'm sorry to say, I won't be spending an elongated time with you.
