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.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Draught at EBF 2008, Copenhagen. Clear deep orange with a not-over-the-top sweet dried apricot fruity nose. On the tongue it is soft and sweet but with a great minty herbal flavour to set it apart and then a hot alcohol rush at the swallow. However, even then it does not taste 10.5% and is very drinkable.

harrisoni (16837) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
On tap at EBF 08. It’s not really their best style. It’s a hoppy sweet barley wine. Bit musty. Not my favourite from this outstanding brewery.

larsga (7155) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2008
Medium light brown head. Deep red hazy body. Sweet deep firm malty aroma with raisin notes and a fruity background. Intense dry-sweet powerfully malty taste with raisin and sherry notes. Some straw and grain. Some alcohol heat. Dry roasty malt aftertaste. Very nice! (0.1l taster draft at EBF ’08.)
