In the spirit of the season, Short’s Brewing Company is pleased to release throughout Michigan the kind of Evil Urges that there’s no use denying. Bottled and distributed for the very first time, Evil Urges is set to be on shelves statewide by the middle of next week!
Evil Urges (7.8% ABV, 50 IBU) is a Belgian Dark Strong Ale with a deep dark brown color and thick viscous allure. A sharp aroma of chocolate and molasses hits the senses, reminiscent of a rich liqueur. Aided by additions of Belgian amber candy sugar, the initial flavors are sweet and malty, with some unique dark fruit qualities. Defined roast malt character with a slight black coffee bitterness, leads into an intense warming finish, rounding out this full bodied experience.
As distinctive as the flavor, the label artwork for Evil Urges is another masterpiece done by artist Tanya Whitley. The conflicted cat depicted in the artwork is Dale Bob, the beer-bellied feline of Head Brewer Tony Hansen. Dale (for short) has a certain way about him of perching on the edge of the coffee table for a little sip of Tony’s libation. If you are like Dale and are hankering for Evil Urges, be sure to grab your six-pack promptly because, like so many specialty products, we don’t expect the Urges to hang around for long!
