ABV: 7% | IBU: 30 | Our Props: 8.0
Evil never tasted so good! That's right, another great brew from Big Boss Brewing. I give this Belgium style ale a 8 out of 10. Other reviews I've read gave it lesser props. I really thought this beer deserved it though. Now I'm not the keenest on what exactly makes a superb Belgium ale but I thought this one was quite nice. The beer poured a nice yellowish-orange pour with a thin white head. I thought the beer had a really nice drinkability to it. It has that Belgium ale style yeasty-chalkiness to it but was lighter than most (I thought). The beer has a nice citrus aroma to it but that was not so present in the taste. I have read that Belgium style beers are supposed to leave hints of fruit-ness or spice to it which this one did not have a lot of other than clove. Overall I would buy this one again and thought is a nice variation to our usual hoppy IPA's.
