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.

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 This is a rerate. Bottle. Medium high off-white lasting head. Hazy darl red body. Coffee alcohol hops aroma. Very mild, smooth and round coffee liquorice flavor with spicy notes, low carbonation and a long coffee aftertaste. Although the alcohol is evident it is not unpleasant.

Ungstrup (29846) - 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 (25083) - 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

yespr (32001) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2007
1/2 pint at Lord Nelson. Pours hazy amber with a dense off-white head. Malty and slight hoppy aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a slight spice note. Quite sweet actually. Has a strange spice note on top of the sweet malt. Ends with a solid bitterness and more of that undefineable herbal/spice note.
