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.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
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.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle. It’s a clear, dark reddish copper beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is heavy on the malty side, and a bit subdued on the hops. Raisins, ripe blue plums, beef-stock, caramel, pine cones and fortified wine. Full-bodied and warming, with a suitable co2 level. The alcohol is quite evident in the mouth as well, giving a rather pleasant burn. Flavors of sweetness, caramel, a tiny roasted note, raisins, some hoppy bitterness and alcohol fills the mouth. The finish is of the lasting kind, warming and sweet, maybe needing just a little more bitterness. A well crafted beer, but I can’t help feeling that my total score on the beer is a bit too high. But I enjoyed it very much. 090825

harrisoni (14990) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
On tap at EBF 08. It’s not really their best style. It’s a hoppy sweet barley wine. Bit musty. Not my favourite from this outstanding brewery.

Dedollewaitor (14532) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 14, 2008
Tap @ Olbaren, Copenhagen. Pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet malty, vinous & spicy. Full bodied & very smooth. Alcohol is well hidden & the beer is extremely easy drinkable. Sweet caramel & anise/herbs dominates like in Mystikale! Nice Barley wine!
