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.

yespr (30747) - 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.

Ungstrup (29135) - 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 (25089) - 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

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.
