Bi-Weekly Beer Review Episode 3
Mephistopheles’ Stout (2013) – Avery Brewing (Boulder, CO) ABV 15.4% 5 out of 5
The stout pours thick and slow. Black in color with a tan head. Scent of malts but not burnt like other strong stouts, a sweet sugar scent. Strong flavor with a burning on the back end. Chocolate and light roasted malts are what hit me first then it changes to bitter hops.
When it warmed the burn on the backend goes away and the Carmel comes out. This is such a great stout
