Mephistopheles’ Metamorphosis

Thanks to BEERchitect for the trade.

Annoying carbonation on the opening of the impressive looking bottle. Wave afer wave of light bubbles waste a substantial amount of beer on the kitchen counter. Cloudy apple juice colored liquid (a lot of yeast sediment), not really what I am looking for in my Tripel’s.

Decent Belgian yeasty and mildly spiced aroma. A little bit of a honey cheerio grain/cereal smell too.

Tastes are incredibly sweet even for my sugar loving palate. It ends with a huge alcohol finish and a psuedo Belgian spice note and some bitterness. All a bit of a mess.

This is definitely not a very good Tripel, but it seems to have a certain charm. I managed to drink it despite its obvious shortcomings.
