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.

Rating #592, bottle from Barley Wine

Easily opaque brown-red beer with a green hue. Ok head. Aroma has malts, loads of hops, caramel, alcohol, berries. Or as one of my friends called it: Beer sirup. Flavor of malts, liquorice, blackcurrant, raspberries, raisins, menthol, sweetness, alcohol and a medium bitter finish. Medium thickness, nicely soft. Good!

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is really nice and malty, lots caramel, toffee, sweet malts, brown sugar, some hop bitterness still left, though I think this is an older bottle, marmalade and more traditional English fruit flavors. The flavor follows the nose, I get lots of the caramel and toffee, the sweet malt, brown sugar, dark fruits, some hop bitterness, marmalade, fruit cake and the traditional English fruit flavors. The body is medium to full with a silky mouth feel. Overall a great Barley Wine, I would love to see this barrel aged!

andrewturba (974) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
Pours a very cloudy copper/orange colour and a solid dirty white head that lasts and leaves good lace up the glass. Aromas of sweet malt, sweet dried fruits, perfumy, toffee and overall quite fruity. Flavour is sweet fruits, sweet malts, mild bitterness, light toffee, slightly nutty and a warming alcohol character.

Joakgust (894) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle, 50cl - Semi hazy beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of spices, caramel, dried fruit and som alcohol. Flavor is malty with notes of toffee, caramel, herbs, some vanilla and a hint of alcohol. Very warming beer and perfect for this time of year. Slight hints of mintyness indicate hopping with Northern Brewer.
