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.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
Sample at Ølfestival 2012. Hazy amber colour with little head. Taste and aroma are big on toffee, with a deep hit of winter berries and dark fruit to complement it. Alcohol is noticable but this goes down pretty smooth. I was sufficiently impressed.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
Mörka söta toner, kanske lite russin. Fyllig mikrofonen, ABVn lyser igen lite. Balans i smaken, beska och alkohol i eftersmaken.

Foffern (1698) - Bodø, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2013
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Has a deep golden mahogny colour with a small beige head. The aroma is roasted and rich and filled with oak, nuts and some roasted almonds. Again roasted malt at first then more dried fruit, wood, leather and some alcohol. The mouthfeel is slick and soft, and has a light bitterness. The aroma is a bit faint but the beer has a powerful flavour with some roastedness inbetween.

stefannilssons (1580) - 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?

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of caramel, molasses, dried orange-red fruits. Flavor is sweet with these fruit notes and hints at richer molasses/toffee flavors. Pretty basic.
