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.

Pinball (10906) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle, 33cl. Best Before: judgement day (lol - label says so!). my first barley wine.. flavor was mostly alcohol, but beneath the strong alc, i got a well compsed well balanced unidentified taste, sort of like cognac or wihskey, but less bitter and more like fruit juice. Interesting brew, my first of its kind, and although i don’t like aged beer, this one is good. sophisticated.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a deep reddish amber colour with fluffy disappearing off-white foam. Loads id spices in the aroma with dense malts underneath. Hints of ginger, mint, white pepper and alcohol with sweet undertones of caramel and dried fruits. Full-bodied with notes of caramel, earth, wood, nut-shells, pepper and alcohol. Fudge and caramel in the dense long finish with strong bitter peppery, minty and earthy notes. A Uk-style BW with a lot of attitude. Rather young and rough, definitely has some aging potential.

0.5 l bottle. Red color with creamy head. Sweet aroma with candy, biscuity maltiness, dark sugar, overripe banana, raisins, pepper and ginger. Bittersweet, toffeish and gingery flavor with notes of overripe fruits. Fairly hoppy but the balance is more on a sweet maltiness. Good.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2008
Dark coppery colored with cloudy appearance. Little yellow head. Weird christmas spicy gingery-caardamom aroma with hints of raisins and hops, mild alcohol also here. Medium bodied. Flavor is also interesting with same ginger dominating with mild port wine and caramel. Aftertaste dries strongly with still this spiciness and thin positive cardboard and mild alcohol. Interesting though different devil here.
