Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 02-06-2006

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. Cellarable for 10+ years.

Mephistopheles is the final installment of “The Demons of Ale” series.

Food pairing: We like Mephistopheles’ Stout with chocolate (60% cocoa or more), chocolate lava cake, flourless chocolate cake, tiramisu or traditional fruit cake made with rum-soaked fruits.

Extra in a trade with Not Your Dads Beer. Thanks Marc!

Its actually a very beautiful beer. Absolutely pitch black. For 17%, the head is huge (and caramel colored).

I actually didnt get any booze or alcohol at all. Roasted, smoked malt is dominant. Smells sweet, like black caramel if that makes sense. As the beer warmed, from the cellar temp i poured it at, the booze came out to play.

Taste is full of smoked, roasted malt. Exceptionally dry and full of dry grains. Dark dried fruits are there somewhat, but that 17% alcohol is warming. Notes of caramel malt, but still dominated by dryness and a pervading warming alcohol effect. Slightly sweet, which is a nice compliment to the smoke from the malt. Some oak or red wine aging would do wonders for this thing.

Very full body, the booze makes it the ideal sipper.

A - deep dark black/brown very sludgy, almost two finger brown head and some nice lacing

S - so much wood in the nose, nice booze note, chocolate, some nice coffee, very nice malts, lots of roadted everything, tons of sugar, vanilla and a bready yeast

T - lots of sugar, chocolate, nice coffee, vanilla, molasses, very boozy, soil, earth, there is a pine/citrus hop note that is actually quite nice, tons of toasted malts and more amazing booze

M - full bodied, huge, low acidity, medium balance, nice complexity and long finish

D - not for most, huge everything! The booze and sugar are out of control but still very tasty. As high an abv as it is, it is still very, very drinkable and deslicious

Final thought - $8 a pop and 17% abv, wow, Avery has done it again! Love their strong beers

Bottled Nov. 2006.

Pours an inky black with a tiny head that is pulverized by the very...large...amount of alcohol.

Aroma: toffee, chocolate, rum, plum, raisin, molasses...complexity is amazing. Alcohol is powerful to say the least, but it does not overwhelm the nose. Excellent.

Very sweet at first, followed by an intense rum-like fruitiness and an astringent roastiness that keeps it from being too sweet. Fades into a wisp of hop flavor (tastes like standard American C-hops). Alcohol flavor is noticeable, but again not overly so. However, this beer warms the throat every time it goes down. Finish is bittersweet roastiness, like 70% cacao dark chocolate, with a slightly salty hop bitterness (I get this attribute from columbus, which Avery seems to be fond of). Outstanding flavor and a wonderful sipping beer.

Mouthfeel: Thick & chewy, medium carbonation keeps it from being too syrupy.

Drinkability: Very good for anything over 12%.

Samael's Ale has been one of my favorite beers for a while now, and I was very excited to get this here in Houston - it did not let me down. Looks like I will be shelling out some more cash to get some more of these to age.

this beast pours out like a thick black motor oil with a dark brown head

the smell is very strong of roasted coffee and malts as well as hints of anise and a pretty good booze note

the taste is amazing! this beer tastes like a bourbon barrel beer thanks to its alcohol level and has a nice coffee flavor that was picked up in the smell. there is bittersweet chocolate and a caramely sweetness to it but overall there is an astringent character to the taste from the heavy amounts of black malts in this brew

this thing finishes like its going to take the world over. a huge full bodied beer with a strong but not overpowering alcohol presence and a nice dry finish. this beer was amazing in my book, a huge strong dark beer that was frankly amazing. i wouldn't hesitate to get another of these guys!

Pours a very deep black, almost opaque. Minimal head that fades fast.

Smells big with mostly roasted malts followed by dried fruits and chocolate, and the warming aroma of booze at the end.

Taste is very similar to the aroma, except that I feel the dried fruit sweetness overshadows the roasted malts. The booze is definitely present and adds a nice touch. Very sweet sipping beer... I love it!

Overall this is one of the better beers I've had from Avery. Highly recommended

Had Batch 4 (November 2008) on September 26, 2011-Poured cold from fridge, head thin and dissipating; allowed to sit and warm for fifteen minutes, head quickly returns when aerated; roasty, almost burnt, initial taste, smooth and warming; taste of chocolate grows as it warms; poured second half of bottle and nice, thin brown head; extremely smooth and warming, chocolate dissipates but so does roast, though it may be the abv catching up; enjoyed thoroughly.

A- Filmy, tan head with an array of different sized bubbles rests on top of a pitch black body with very slow-moving carbonation

S- Sweet and dark, with smells of chocolate cake, honey, and a cloud of alcohol carries the smell of a light, flowery perfume.

T- The taste is massive and leaves your tongue a bit stunned with a sting of alcohol. Bitter-sweet, mint-chocolate flavor.

M- Decadently thick with a silky carbonation slowly caressing your tongue.

D- The alcohol is a monster, but it is sold in 12oz bottles. Use a bottle capper if you got one.

a: Black as oil, initial one finger caramel head settling in to a tan dusting.

s: Malt, sweet caramel, espresso, black liquorish, dark chocolate

t: Malty sweetness on the tip of the tongue which slides in to a smooth bitterness. Finishes with a taste of true dark, bitter chocolate. Great imperial stout!!

m: Creamy, dense, not in a hurry, perfect amount of carbonation.

d: This is very drinkable for being north of 15% ABV! I've always described this beer as a perfect addition (maybe the main attraction) to a good movie. It's a beer that sticks around and evolves as it warms. Well done Avery Brewing!

Pours black with a decent size pumpkin pie colored head that slowly receds to a ring. Aroma is big and bourbony, dark ripe fruit, chocolate and berries, very nice and inviting. Big and sweet in the taste, chocolate, smooth and thick cut with a nice bourbon that comes in mid taste and lasts all the way through. Mouthfeel is thick and sugary, some twangy acidity before a slightly dry and alcoholic finish. Wow, this beer is big and could go forever, the alcohol is extremely well balanced but is definitely there. Great bourbony ris characteristics, a sipper for sure, could be dessert all on its own. Not something you could drink many of but I sure sipped it like I didn't want it to end.

This is clearly a big stout just by looking at it. It's a thick, viscous and heavy black color that lets some mahogany come off the top and the very outermost edges when set right in front of a very bright light. The head is a thick, pillowy brown one about a finger tall that retains its height and form well, like a frothy crown, and lets some of itself down stickily in strong patching pretty far down the glass.
There's so much wood, and it's so delicately and warmly boozy without immediately inducing a headache or going heavily ethanolic, nor does it give the impression that I'll get drunk simply from smelling it. It does, however, give the impression of some fantastic spirit. For the massive ABV, it comes together magnificently in every way. There's a whole lot of wood in the smell and the taste, not too dry, a little bit with some freshness that isn't exactly raw, even with that slight, almost indescribable salty nature. Tons of breads, toasted, with dark fruits off the roasty backbone give way to the creamier sweetness of vanilla and cocoa (the latter offering more bittersweetness), as well as the thick and not-too-heavy molasses element. Some reminiscence of coffee builds off the roast, too. This is absolutely amazing in every way, showing off so much depth, complexity and even balance, so much robustness without being too heavy. It's close to perfect, and one of the best I've ever had.
Thick and robust, this beer is somehow both heavy and easy-drinking. The alcohol thins it out a little, but that works in this beer's favor considering how big and rich it is despite that. It finishes with lingering complexities and a touch of dryness that sneaks in off the big sweetness. It's a little vinous, in fact, with a bite on the tongue as well.

Bought two bottles from the local bottleshop... one to cellar and one I am drinking and reviewing. The brew pours thick and finishes with one finger of nut-brown head. Looks inviting. Smell is sharp, which is indicative of a strong character. Mouthfeel is good, thick and heavy. Robust character and hearty consistency. Taste is sweet at first sip, hints of rasins and fig. The alcohol overwhelms the initial sweetness but never rises to a bite. Smooths out and finishes with a nice warmth. Overall, a strong stout with an aggressive nose and smooth finish.

Batch 6, bottled december of 2010, 15.95% ABV, this was a birthday present from a friend and I am stoked to finally try it

A: I set my glass down on my black coffee table and the beer is still darker than my table some how, it is pitch black, left a small tan/chocolate colored head that leaves a minimal amount of lacing around the glass, this beer is so dark I'm literally searching my house to find things that are darker than it, it's almost like you're staring into space with out anything to see in space, just darkness, and it's awesome!

S: It is a little hard to identify much because the smell is a little faint, you can definitely notice the booze right away though (expected), I get a nice amount of chocolate, and a nice amount of tobacco as well, it has a sugary smell to it as well, and I get a small amount of coffee and a vanilla/caramel mixture, the tobacco is a little overpowering and is slightly bad in my opinion, but if you like the smell of tobacco you would really love the way this beer smells

T: Again right away you get booze, but the beer transitions really well, after the boozy flavor your palate is hit with sweet milk chocolate, which then turns into a 50/50 chocolate coffee blend which is fantastic, then the beer finishes with a perfect blend of chocolate, coffee, tobacco, vanilla, and caramel, the alcohol leaves a nice warming feeling as it goes down, this is definitely a cold weather beer! Fantastic taste, I am not sure if this beer is barrel aged or not, but if it were, it would bump the taste up to a 5/5 for me, it just needs that little extra something to it, fantastic flavor profile, way better than what I was expecting!

M: This beer is very thick, and very creamy, the creaminess to it gives it a smooth drinking characteristic which is much needed for how strong this beer is, it is also slightly oily which also helps with the drinkability, since the beer is so thick it almost becomes chewy, pretty solid feel to it, works well for this beer

O: Great beer, definitely exceeded my expectations by a lot, this beer could definitely use some serious aging though, would definitely by more of this if I can get my hands on it, if you got a cellar pick some up and let it age for awhile, I can imagine this would be a damn good beer with 5 plus years under its belt, but after 3 it was still pretty good in my opinion

Bottled Nov 2007, Batch 3

A - Pours jet black into my Stone RIS glass. A small 1 finger tan head forms and quickly dissipates to a thin rim around the glass. At this point a pretty swirl of tan bubbles dance across the surface of the beer in the glass. It looks like a Picasso painting or something.

S - Very roasty, lots of chocolate- but bitter dark chocolate, and some molasses. The smell is very strong and very good.

T/M - Starts off very smooth, with a very sweet chocolate flavor. As the sip continues, the carbonation and alcohol pick up and make for a spicy bite. The aftertaste is almost all chocolate. This is really a tasty brew. I had this fresh a while back and this is significantly better with the extra few years on it. The alcohol, while still very present, has calmed down a bit.

O - I really love this stout, both fresh and with the age on it. I wish that Avery still distributed to CT.

2009 bottle from Olive Market in Ocean Beach.

A- I did not get much of a head, might have chosen the wrong type of glass. Dark coffee like.

Smell - Exactly burnt raisin bagel. Nice.

Taste - O so much to take in. I get the chocolate bit. Would love to age this a couple of more years so that the alcohol heat would come down a bit more.

One of my favorites.

Great looking beer. Pitch black like the heart of Satan's right hand man. Typical imperial stout. Pours thick, looks thick...it is thick. Small head, little lacing, viscosity of motor oil.

Smells absolutely fantastic. This beer is somewhere around 16% alc. From you the beginning, it burns your nostrils. You can feel Mephistopheles himself in the bottle. Smells like hot magma from the gates of Hades. Brimstone is hinted with dark dried fruits, molasses and sin.

I could literally drink this beer all day long. Very complex and changes as it warms. You get much more sweeter notes than expected. Quite a burn, but smooth one at that, when swallowed. Aftertastes of black cherries, some chocolate, sugars, perhaps some pine. The dried fruits REALLY start to churn out when warmer. Breathtakingly delicious.

Mouthfeel is commonly overlooked, but this beer demands respect. Oily, slick and liquid tar. Sounds bad, feels great. Its a liquid demon orgy in a bottle and all hell breaks loose when drinking.

I wish I could rate above 5 for drinkability. This stout could easily be enjoyed for 2 hours. Its hard to find drinkability as good as this beer.

Overall, nobody could ever imagine sin being this good. This is near perfection. Highly recommend.

I have had this one many times before. This is my first review.

Pours a typical stout style. Dark...off white head..ect ect..

VERY aromatic. Dank fresh squaw bread smells. Other smells of chocolate syrup, alcohol, ripe fruits, and molassis.

Alcoholic taste with alcoholic bitterness. Maybe mixed in hop bittering? This baby has all the classic flavors of this style, the only thing different is the extreme bitter bite. The bitterness lasts and lasts and lasts. Huge chocolate as this one warms up. Very possibly described as drinking liquid milk chocolate with bitter bakers chocolate melted in.

Thick and oily mouthfeel with a creamy texture. Very interestiing!
The high alcohol bitterness and boozyness makes this one a true sipper. Start this one very warm. It will control you for over an hour. Good luck and good drink!

What an amazing beer. 12 ounce bottle, shared with BA earthman, courtesy of him.

Appearance, black as sin itself, with a fine roasted espresso cap.

Aroma spills out into the atmosphere, booze blended with coffee and motor oil.
Let's add a messy mix of plums, raisins, rusted molasses, treacle, anise underneath, snips of chocolate. Quite a ferrago indeed.

Taste is thick and slick and slightly bitter, huge, sinful, decadent, rich beyond all recognition...enormous mouthfeel...molasses up the wazoo...fantastic stuff, immense ...unbelievable...unique...nothing like it.

and then, boom! boom! comes the alcohol!

This is the imperial stout pushed beyond all limits. Wonder why it's not as beloved as Dark Lord? Not as thick? Not as rare? Too strong? No parties in the parking lot?

A succulent dish, despite the price, not to be missed.

An absolutely phenomenal beer.
Poured into a tulip glass, it was a midnight black color with a thick tan head. There was plenty of lace.
Very boozy aroma, but in no way intrusive. Sweet, fruity, chocolatey. Roasted malt.
I can't do justice to a description of the taste of this beer. Strong alcohol, espresso, chocolate, cherry, peppery. All these flavors merged in an exemplary fashion.
This was a rich, rewarding beer, one to sip and savor. Excellent.

Thanks dhchatfield for this beer.

This beer was served in a wide mouthed wine goblet. The beer was served cold so it could warm up while drinking. I thought this beer would be a sipper.

Appearance: The beer is a oily black coloration. No ruby opaqueness to light is present in the beer. The beer head is two fingers high and the color of burnt creamed coffee. Major sticky lacing remains on the glass.

Smell: The beer has complex blend of explosively boozey dark sweet fruityness (figs, dates and berries) dipped in a mixture of molasses espresso and chocolate with a dab of soy sauce. The beer has an ever so slight pine cone prescence.

Taste: The beer is full on sweet at the begining. Loads and loads of molasses and sugary sweetness rain down. Just when the beer is in danger of going cloyingly sweet with raisans. Darkly roasted nearing burnt coffee and bitter sweet chocolate raise their heads. The beer then breaks into a somewhat vinous quality. Spicey alcohol adds a pleasing counter note and also helps breaks up the sweetness.

Mouthfeel/ Drinkability: The beer is full bodied and then some. The beer is major league chewy. The taste seems to linger forever. The beer is loaded with alcohol feel; however, the alcohol burn and texture add to the beer experience in a positive way. The beer does a big time warming of the belly. This beer should be treated with respect. The beer is a definate self regulating sipper. Perhaps it would have been wiser to split this beer with a good friend. Sometimes the wisdom of the beer split seems to escape me. This is a dam fine double stout and I enjoyed it immensely. The beer will make a great winter warmer. I will rush out and buy a few more of these for cellaring.

Bottled in Dec. 2009, Served March 17, 2011.

Appearance: Black as night, with about a finger of creamy white head, and nice fluid lacing.

Smell: Smokey, bourbon, chocolate, they're all noticeable. Along with the scent of aged wood.

Taste: Smokey and smooth, the booze is more noticeable in the taste than the smell.

MF: Very rich, very creamy, works very well with the high ABV, the finishing kick snaps to the back of your mouth and just sticks there.

Drinkability: Excellent, glad to have kicked off St. Patricks Day with this one.

This poured a completely opaque black with a tiny bit of very dark tan head. Maybe the darkest beer I've ever seen. It smelled like burnt coffee and bitter chocolate, with prominent licorice and alcohol, and hints of orange, fig, and sweet yeast. It tasted like rich dark chocolate and maraschino cherries, with some coffee and oak and licorice, along with noticeable alcohol flavoring. It was oily with no carbonation, and had a lasting burnt aftertaste with definite alcohol warming. Overall this was certainly a sipping beer, quite similar to the World Wide Stout. I wish I could try this fresh, but a 2 year old bottle was all I could find. Regardless, it has held up well, with very powerful and decadent flavors. I just can't say enough about how rich and complex this beer was. It had good body, but I wish it was a bit thicker to match the extreme flavor. Regardless, this was just a delight to drink...just really make sure to pace yourself.

Poured out darth vader black, thick creamy light brown head. The nose has bunches of dark roasted coffee, some hops, dark fruit, and alcohol. The taste is an eruption of flavors, coffee, wood, pine, leather, tobacco, dark chocolate, sherry, pine resin, cherry, it keeps going and going. Fantastic! Has a fairly sharp mouthfeel, with a long slow burning finish. The alcohol is masked extremely well.

An opaque black brew with a solid ring of tan bubbles on top but plenty of lacing to follow. The aroma offers deep licorice and intriguing vegetable with lush chocolate overtones and cigar-like complements. Just an awesome and intense symphony of scents! The palate brings more of the same with a licorice liqueur, minty molasses, citrus hop mixed in with thick juniper...delicious. This is big league stuff with a heavy body and viscous feel with light carbonation to add a "tingly" touch. I never even thought about the alcohol level here, it just wasn't an issue when you're busy enjoying the complex beauty of the flavor, but clearly this is a brew to be savored fairly slowly, and a "no doubt about it" WOW!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass
Batch 6: December 2010

A: Pours with a tiny tan head that disappears quickly with ever so slight lacing. The color is incredibly dark brown (read black) and completely opaque, even around the edges.

S: The smell dark and alcoholic. I can smell coffee, sweet malt, toffee, chocolate and raisins. There is also a fairly strong scent of alcohol.

T: Wow! This is a potent beer. This beer opens up with a strong espresso flavor with notes of mocha and smoke. This transitions to a dry dark chocolate flavor. In the background there is an earthy pine taste. This, combined with the dark chocolate, contribute a fantastically complex bitterness. There is an underlying sweetness. There is some warm fruit flavors here like raisins and plums. The aftertaste consists primarily of a smoky oak flavor and is relatively mild compared to the bold taste.

M: More carbonated than I would have expected. Oily and slick.

O: All around this beer is pretty good, but it really excels in taste. I’ve rarely had some a complex and interesting drink that was also so drinkable.
