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

This is a dark and mysterious Belgian strong ale that looks, well, dark and mysterious in the glass. A shade of crimson-ruby when held to the light. Not overpowering but definitely distinct aromas with yeasty esters. Stone fruits, dried fruits are present. Tasty, warms well, and one I’d gladly drink again.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

Review from 1/4/14

A: Dark color with not much head off the pour.

S: Smells sweet, a little caramely, and has some dark fruitiness in there also.

T: Dark fruit, wet paper/cardboard taste, light brown sugar, and a little bit of cocoa.

M: Medium body, lower carbonation, and a little bit of an oily feel.

O: A decent Belgian-style beer. Flavor is fairly complex, but the wet paper kills it.

12 oz brown bottle - Shorts website states: 7.8 ABV with 58 IBU

Evil Urges Belgian Ale filled my tulip glass with a deep very dark brown [almost black] color and produced a 1 1/2 finger bubbly tan head that reduced to a collar of foam. The nose picks up an aroma of chocolate and dark fruits. This medium-full body ale is malty and sweet. with dark fruits and has a roasted character with enough bitterness to balance.

Evil Urges is an easy drinker - if you like the style it is sure with a go!
