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.

Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2008
Huge thick beige head that mostly lasted. Very sparkling appearance with an amber color. Fair display of lacework. Aroma of bread, toasted malt, light alcohol, light fruity notes and hint of yeast and floral notes as well. Over the palate comes toffee, vinous and very malty base with a somewhat dusty grain / caramels feel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavor with low bitterness. Sweet malty / toffee like finish with a bitter alcoholic twist.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2008 2008-02-08, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Dark red mahogany color; creamy head. The aroma is alcoholic, with light caramel. It has a medium body strength, not to be confused with the alcohol, that immediately gets in the mouth; there is some caramel and mild chocolate flavor, with traces of vegetables. Wrong and extremely alcoholic; a "malty malt liquor". I won’t spend more words, as this beer doesn’t deserve much.

2008-01-28, draught at Cockney Pub, Århus, 6-4-7-3-13=33
Hazy dark amber color; creamy head; sticky lace. It has a very mild aroma, of malt, and something similar to a Malt Liquor. It’s full bodied, with a strong malt and caramel flavor, unfortunately for me corrected by a too strong sweet liquorice in the beginning; the liquorice then disappears a bit, and some sweet nutty trace comes in. It’s quite bitter and the final is long, with the malt too and the alcohol gently warms the mouth. Quite good, but the liquorice is not my liking.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 This is a rerate. Bottle. Medium high off-white lasting head. Hazy darl red body. Coffee alcohol hops aroma.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2008
A deep red beer with a slight haze under a huge light tan head. The aroma is very sweet malty with notes of caramel, berries, and fruit. The flavor is very sweet and very malty combined with strong spicy notes - especially cloves, as well as notes of alcohol and caramel.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours an almost clear, orangey brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Sweetish caramel aroma. Medium body, completely dominated by huge amounts of sweet caramel, some lightly spicy, medicinal notes and a somewhat unrefined, raw bitterness. Not exactly a study in complexity as it is. I’m sure some cellaring will do good to this - perhaps even to doomsday, as the back label suggests. 311207

Bottle. Dark brown with medium off white creamy head. Aroma is vinous with roasted malt, chocolate, liquerice and toffee. Sweet flavor with chocolate, liquerice, hops and fruits. Full bodied. Alcohol very well hidden. Finishes bitter. Lovely!
