COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Previously brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

English: Old Mephisto is a big beer: Full, warming and intense. Old Mephisto offers balanced sweetness, roasted caramel and a rounded bitterness - all held together by the vinous character. The inviting brandy coloured Old Mephisto can be enjoyed with strong cheeses, full game dishes or on its own.

pentaz (1240) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle @ Café Langebro . Pours murky brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma is quite malty with caramel, dades, nuts, brown sugar, spice, overly ripe or almost rotten dark fruit, spice, cardboard and yeast. Taste is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, carbonation is near flat. Finishes sweet, nutty and spicy. Almost like a bad malt liquor.

phaleslu (6607) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2013
500 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a hazed fig-amber color with a small off-white head that settles into a small film with a ring. Small rising carbonation bubbles are visible on the edges. Aroma of toffee, dates, figs, raisins, brown sugar, and toast. Right on the money. Flavor of toffee, brown sugar, raisins, dates, and figs, with some really nice spiciness late, like a little black pepper and rye. Nice and balanced, and not overly sticky or sweet. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. I really enjoyed this, and was pleasantly surprised because I was a bit disappointed with Gudelos.

Palme (3441) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2013
On tap @ Henrik. This is a deep ruby red one with a medium sized lasting light brown-ish top. Sweet sticky caramel and loads of sweet fruits on the nose. Cacti, toffee apples, glazed nuts and a soft spicy tone. It has a soft prickling carbonation level and a heavy thick full bodied mouthfeel. The taste is not bad either, and it’s not hard to tell that this is a proper barley wine. Loaded with sweet toffee and caramelly malts. Surprised how much nuts I find in this, cause the aftertaste is just the same as I get when I have with bad continence allowed myself a handful of nuts from board.. The alcohol is surprisingly well camouflaged, and it feels really lightdrinkable. Ends with traces of old ripe fruits, sweet blue plums and red apples. Wait, apple is a fruit, so nevermind that last bit. Is a plum a fruit? A berry? Hmm.. I should know this. Have I had to much of this? 08.02.2013
