3.7/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a nice darkish brown black with a one finger mocha head that faded to leave light, thin side lacing and a thin creamy blanket/halo.

S - Aromas of almost burning alcohol, dark raisins, plum, burnt sugars, candi malts. Maybe some faint chocolate.

T - Taste is dark fruits, chocolate, raisins, sugary sweetness, burnt caramel, belgian yeast notes. Actually not that bad at all.

M - Mouthfeel though is pretty meh. Lowly carbonated, thin, syrupy, booze, sticky, heavy. Ugh.

O - Overall, a solid offering from Short's though not my favorite Belgian Dark Ale by any means.

3.88/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a black color with just the lightest hint of brown around the edges. almost no foam but a small tan film that fades quickly to nothing. opaque

Smell: immediately a strong yeast smell. strong raisin as well. dark candi sweetness. maybe a bit of plums and a hint of roast or burnt sugar

Taste: opens up with a strong belgian yeast. dark fruits, light plum and strong raisin. dark candi sugar sweetness, dark slightly burnt caramel.

Mouthfeel: a bit too heavy and sticky, could be lighter and more carbonated.

Overall: a few flaws in look and mouthfeel but a solid beer over all. still not on the high end of belgian darks but worth a shot for Shorts and Belgian dark fans

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.
