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.

pentaz (1254) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle @ Café Langebro . Pours murky brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma is quite malty with caramel, dades, nuts, brown sugar, spice, overly ripe or almost rotten dark fruit, spice, cardboard and yeast. Taste is moderate sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, carbonation is near flat. Finishes sweet, nutty and spicy. Almost like a bad malt liquor.

Cirrhosis (1248) - 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.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Clear, dark amber. Small, offwhite head. Aroma of raisins, dark yeast, alcohol. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Taste is discretely vinous, some dried fruit, not too boozy, not too sweet.

esox (1167) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2012
Bottled. Hazy, dark amber beer has thick and creamy head and nice lacing. Fruity and herbal hoppy nose, some raw apple and a touch of alcohol. Winegums and dried apricots. Sweetish, dark caramelly flavor and drier pale malts. Slightly resiny bitter finish with hints of toasted almonds. Slightly vegetal and alcoholic. Smooth, slick texture with alcoholic warmt. Medium bodied. Simple BW.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2011
The pour is a translucent, deep garnet color with an average, beige, pillowy head which is somewhat lasting and leaves a bit of soapy lace rings. The nose is warming with rich caramel and toffee, vanilla, fruit cake, brandy-like sweetness, and hints of woodsy notes. The flavor is still quite sweet but balanced nicely with some bitter notes; still rich with toasted caramel, vanilla, and cake-like notes with vinous sherry notes, some raw oak, and some leafy bitterness. The moderate bitterness comes out more from the middle on from the oak and leafy notes with a light to moderate acidity. The palate is nearly full, slightly syrupy, chewy, and soft to lively. The beer finishes fairly long with the oak and leafy bitterness nearly balancing toasted caramel and faint sherry lingering. Maybe not the most complex BW I have tried but really the style I tend to enjoy; rich malt notes, a drinkable warmth, and a balancing bitterness. The palate worked well for me and the vinous-type notes kept the intrigue. Maybe not the prototypical type of the style but something I really liked.

andrewturba (1144) - 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.
