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.

Foffern (1465) - 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.

Hair6a11 (1428) - Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2011
On tap at the local option. Pour is murky brown/amber with a frothy beige head that retains fairly well into this snifter. Spotty lacing is present as well. Dark fruits, caramel, and cream on the nose. The flavor profile is caramel, cream, dark fruits, sweet breads, licorice, and toffee. What I really noticed about this brew was the nice balanced flavored profile all around.

Nocturne (1273) - 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.

Cirrhosis (1271) - 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.
