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.

Tap @ Olbaren, Copenhagen. Pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet malty, vinous & spicy. Full bodied & very smooth. Alcohol is well hidden & the beer is extremely easy drinkable. Sweet caramel & anise/herbs dominates like in Mystikale! Nice Barley wine!

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours a wonderful clear, dark amber with a fine, frothy yellowish head. Aroma is very fruity, lots of raisins, overripe plums, some dough, rye bread, caramel. Low to medium carbonation, foamy and a bit oily mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit too vinious (a bit too sharp, that is). Otherwise, flavours include the fruitiness from the aroma (subdued by the alcohol though). A good caramel sweet maltiness as well. A bit too much.
