Avery Mephistopheles Stout
Avery Brewing from Colorado started brewing commercially in 1993 and have many great brews to offer. This week I'm reviewing Avery Mephistopheles Stout. Mephistopheles is the crafty shape shifter, the second fallen angel. This Stout pours coal black with little carbonation. The aromas of grapes, Bourbon, dark chocolate are unleashed. The thick texture hits the palate instantly and never goes away. Flavors of caramel, coffee, dark chocolate linger and the double espresso finish satisfies. Mephistopheles is high alcohol and can be tasted all the way through. IBUs-107.
Food Pairing: chocolate lava cake, Tiramisu or traditional fruit cake made with rum-soaked fruits.
Batch 1 (Jan 2006): 15.1% ABV.
Batch 2 (Nov 2006): 16.03% ABV.
Batch 3 (Nov 2007): 16% ABV.
Batch 4 (Nov 2008): 15.92% ABV.
Batch 5 (Dec 2009): 16.83% ABV.
