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.

brnandersen (1886) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2012
Sample from tap, CBF 2012. Dark amber colour with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma with malts, sweet, roasted caramel and spices. Taste is sweet. Full bodied with a oily texture. Finishes long lasting with a small hint of alcohol, some liquorice and herbal notes. Enjoyable BW.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2012
50cl bottle: Pours a slightly murky dark mahogany with a thin-lacing covering of light tan head. Has a sweet, lightly-oxidized caramel malty nose with some sherry character and citrus hoppy notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and chewy dark caramel sweetness with some light fruity complexity and good hop bitterness before a drier bittersweet, slightly warming finish. An enjoyable American-style barley wine.

MotherBrother (693) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2012
Pour dark, deep ruby red, with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of plums, dates, malts, caramel, toffee, portwine notes ans slight oaky notes. Slightly hoppy towards the end. Taste is sweet, with a slight bitter finish, from both the hops and the wood. Medium body, with a medium oily texture, and average carb.

Cirrhosis (1207) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2012
Ruby red brown with a thin skiff floating on top. Yum yum yum aroma. Medical cherry, spice, dark oak, sweet heavy plumb, vanilla, and mild hints of pennies. This aroma is exactly what I was craving tonight. So much CHERRY in the nose. Taste is good but not as massive as the aroma. Bitter wood, more medical cherry, earth, more stuff. Soft mouth feel with tingly carbonation. The 10.5% is noticeable but is balanced perfect with the body of the beer. The bitter is really coming to the front of the flavour now. This is exactly what I look for in a B-Wine, thick flavour, sweet with a bitter edge, cheery, and a oaky malt. Perfect for me it is but there are better out there. SPICE! This beer hit the spot.

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
Bouteille de 500ml. Merci Patrick. Bière brune-rouge (orangée sous la lumière). Le nez est passablement simple avec une masse de sucre fondu, de caramel. En bouche tout se sucre se répand dans la bouche comme une masse. Il y a beaucoup d’alcool fruité, des houblons amers sont bien agressifs. Une bière à boire à petite gorgée.

Deep copper/amber in color with a hint of off-white head. Raisin-sweet molassis aroma. Malty-honey sweet. Denmark visit ’11 on tap at the Lord Nelson.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm, Sweden. Malty sweet aroma with some grassy notes from the hops. Taste is bitter and rich, stays in the mouth long after the first sip, awesome. Texture is oily and smooth, feels thick. Great barley wine.

mcberko (6405) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2012
500mL bottle, pours a murky dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma of dark fruits (raisins, grapes, black currants), caramel and toffee, and candied sugar. Flavour is extremely well-balanced, with tons of dark fruits as aforementioned, caramel malts, toffee, decent hop character, some coffee, a bit vinous (red wine) and slight sweetness. This should be rated higher than it is. Excellent depth and design on this.
