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.

Bottle (500 ml). Traded by SlovakSniper, thanks Patrick! Dark amber with a small off-white head and little lacing. Aroma is dominated by malt with caramel, brown sugar, wood and slight bitterness. Taste is sweet (almost cloying) and also dominated by malt with caramel, brown sugar, slight smoked malt and slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is slightly vinous. Medium body. In my opinion, this is an average Barley Wine that could benefit from aging (hopefully, it will be more balanced and less sweet with some age).

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
Bouteille 500ml, courtoisie de Slovaksniper. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez de caramel sucré aux petites notes rôties, moyen-léger de fruits, léger de sucre brun et de houblon herbeux avec des notes d’alcool et des traces de fumée de bois. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture riche et moyennement sirupeuse. Léger goût fruité (prunes rouges, notes de raisins vineux, traces de figues) et accompagné de petites boisées (fumée de bois) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût malté de caramel assez sucré et aux faibles notes rôties, léger de sucre brun avec des notes de sirop d’érable et de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une moyenne amertume de houblon herbeux et d’alcool légèrement réchauffant. Post-goût long, moyennement amer d’alcool, moyen-léger de houblon herbeux et toujours avec le goût sucré associé au malt caramélisé.

TEJA (1261) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2012
Draught at Stockholm beer and whiskey festival 2011. The best of their beer at the festival. The barley aged from 2008. Thick beige head. Bright red color. Huge madrefication and much bensaldehyde / marsipan. Sweet caraqmell taste and a medium/ balanced bitterness. A crowd pleaser any winter.

Bottle. Dark brown with a thick foamy off-white head. Aroma is dark caramel with biscuits, raisins and citrusy hops. Flavor is toffee, biscuits, caramel, toasted malts, resiny hops and warm alcohol. Full body with a slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Very good barley wine.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 19, 2012
On draft at THE LOCAL Beer Bar in Eureka, CA. They sure get some amazing draft beers here and this is one of them. Came in the 10 oz glass a rich deep garnet color with a long lasting beige head and very stick lacing rings. Nose of rich caramel malts, with citrus and tropical fruit very apparent. The flavor is candy bar sweet with hits of chocolate and tropical fruit. The alcohol is well hidden and it finishes with the tropical fruit. No telling what might happen to bottles of this aged but on draft it is ready now and super delicious.

stefannilssons (1452) - SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2012
Den här ölen har legat ca. 12 månader i min källare innan jag drack den. Och jag är helt övertygad om att dessa 12 månader har jobbat till ölens fördel. Det här är en mycket bra öl med en stabil kropp och en slät och välavrundad smak. Smaken präglas främst av jästen med en viss fruktiget, aprikos kanske?

AlainG (1141) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
Rousse rouille de fer, un col de fine mousse se tient au sommet du liquide, alors qu’une dentelle éparse décore le tout. Au nez, c’est le sucre d’orge qui nous séduit dès les premières inspirations nasales. Ça se situe di côté champêtre di spectre olfactif. Le cuir, le sous-bois, mais aussi du bonbon à la cannelle. En bouche, c’est sucré et épicé, plutôt poivré. C’est rempli d’un alcool bien dosé qui se fond très bien, tout en laissant une belle amertume en arrière-goût. (377-280912)

laiti (5554) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2012
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE: doomsday
Aroma is sweet and ”sticky” with somewhat harsh malt, lots caramel and hints of berries typical to danish ales. Flavour is sweet with lots of harsh malt, some oaky notes and caramel and slightly stinging alcohol that does not disturb much. Also hints of ”Danish berries” on some sips. Good.
