Avery - Mephistopheles

Meph.jpgSo I have been wanting to try this "Demons of ale" for a while. My first thought was 'just run this baby through the still', it's hot, very hot. Dark with a rich head, fruits and oak are hidden behind the ethanol - it becomes sweet and rich as the ethanol evaporates off. Sweet with a little spice, the hops are present, it burns as it goes down, it's hot. It has a given maltiness, good body, and as it warms you can detect a little tobacco in the finish. This is my fault for popping a 2012 ale that comes in at 16.2%. It's very good but needs to sit for at least two years. Given that it was fresh - the hop tang is still detectable - and overall I enjoyed this ale. I will review this one again in a couple of years.
