Avery Mephistopheles Stout
From Avery Brewing – Mephistopheles is the crafty shape shifter, the second fallen angel. Amazingly complex, coal black, velvety and liqueurish, this demon has a bouquet of vine-ripened grapes, anise and chocolate covered cherries with flavors of rum-soaked caramelized dark fruits and a double espresso finish. IBU’s 107.
Avery Brewing – Avery Mephistopheles Stout – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 15.1 % abv.
Appearance: Pours a red tinted midnight brown with a very thin tan head.
Aroma: Roast, toffee and alcohol.
Taste: Chocolate, burnt roast, toffee, vanilla, spicy and bitter hops, black coffee. A really bold dark blend of goodness. Or badness?
Mouthfeel: Very thick.
Overall: A magnificent, viscous complex mega impy. I can see an argument for drinking it fresh or aged.
