Draft at Long Room. I saw this and couldnít resist it. Iím not super keen on the original Mephistopheles but itís alright. This one was damn awesome. The bitterness of the coffee really cuts through the booze and adds a solid balance that isnít really in the original. Pours quite syrupy with a dissipating head. Nose is boozey, but not as much as I would have thought. Coffee and roast dominate. On tasting, a great balance between all of the alcohol and the coffee. It really drinks amazingly clean and easy for what it is. Iím very impressed.

Camons (7004) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2011
Tap @ Falling Rock, Denver. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma hard roasted malt, coffee, expresso, dark chocolate. Taste is tons of coffee, cold expresso, hints of licorice and dark chocolate, alchohol well hidden for the 16% ABV. Full body, nice amount of carbonation for the ABV, dry bitter coffee finish. Very good, allthough abit onesided as the coffee aroma and taste is so dominant. 080411

In short: A superior roasted coffee stout. A big monster that is too easy to drink. Wow!
How: Tap at Extreme Beer Fest 2011
The look: Black body topped by a large beige head
In long: Nose is very roasted, plenty of coffee. Body is awesome, obviously very full and thick but also rather well carbonated for a 16% monster. Taste is not uber-complex but neither are most coffee stouts. Roasted coffee beans abound and strong cacao notes. Finish is very bitter and dare I say a bit dry, it almost feels very hoppy but Iím pretty sure all the bitterness and dryness sensation comes from the roasted coffee beers. Alcohol and sweetness well hidden. This beer was such a success across the board with everybody who had it at EBF that Iím fully expecting Avery to make it a regular. Iíve never been a big fan of the base beer (Mephistopheles) or any of Averyís big beers but Meph Addict kicks ass and I have no problem giving credit when credit is due. My problem is giving payment when payment is due.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2011
Tasted on 5/6/11 on draft at The Twisted Spoke. Pours absolutely oil black with an average brown head that slowly recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is super intense with tons of darkly roasted malt, fresh coffee, very sweet molasses, and dark chocolate. The flavor is quite sweet with cloying molasses up front, moving to the dark and more roasted flavors dominated by coffee and dark chocolate. The body is massive and creamy with light carbonation and a super long coffee and dark chocolate finish. This beer is quite tasty, but a small pour is plenty.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2011
One of the shockers of EBF! Pours a black as night abyss with a yellow coffee tan head. This has a fantastic coffee nose. Undertones are roast y, bitter sweet, coco, chocolate (dark), licorice, and some booze of course. Big coffee notes transfer quite nicely to the flavor, no hint of pepper whatsoever, huge bitter dark chocolate warming. Honestly astounding for the given ABV, hats off!

deyholla (7590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Sampled from the tap at EBF. Poured black with a dark brown head that dissipated to the edges slowly. Aroma had a creamy coffee note with a hint of espresso bitterness and backing roasted malts. Flavor had a nice balance of creamy coffee, roasted malts and a nice backing note of chocolate and just a hint of dark fruits.

FINALLY! YES! Black pour. Aroma is coffee, coffee, coffee, coffee and a little chocolate. Flavor? ALL COFFEE ALL THE TIME. Rich and sweet. Espresso and coffe overload and I love it!

Doodler (314) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Tried on tap at the Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Pours a viscous black with a thin brown head. Smells predominately like espresso / roasted coffee. Tastes of strong malts and bitter dark chocolate with an enormous coffee backbone. Incredibly roasty with loads of alcohol throughout. Touches of vanilla. Finishes creamy with a tinge of bitterness. Did I mention coffee?

UPDATED: APR 8, 2011 Tap @ Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Deep black appearance with a dark brown head. Nose is like a fresh cup of coffee, so very nice. Big strong, mildly alcoholic dark roasted chocolate stout flavor with a huge coffee flavor. Really a legendary beer.
