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.

Backlog. Slightly too sweet for my taste, but definitely a decent example of the style.

Pours cloudy brown, almost like apple cider, with a modest head. Aroma has caramel, fruit/apple, and some pipe tobacco. Flavor starts sweet with fruit, dates, and molasses. A little bittering hops and alcohol provide balance in the finish, but still just a little too sweet overall.

Nocturne (784) - 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.

Smaken är komplex, enligt katalogbeskrivningen. Kanhända, men det hamnar i så fall i slagskugga av den långt framskjutna alkoholsmaken, som irriterar och distraherar. Den borde ha tuktats bättre, för nu känns det som en von oben-ölprovning som ramlat ned i rännstenen.

MotherBrother (693) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2012
Pour dark, deep ruby red, with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of plums, dates, malts, caramel, toffee, portwine notes ans slight oaky notes. Slightly hoppy towards the end. Taste is sweet, with a slight bitter finish, from both the hops and the wood. Medium body, with a medium oily texture, and average carb.

Samma färg som bränt socker och endast någon enstaka bubbla skum. Doft:Barr, röd vin, humle, vanilj, lakrits, alkohol, syrlig jord doft. Smak: Röd vin, lakrits, humle, starkt svart te, alkohol, blommigt, kaffe beska på något sätt. Lite för mycket vin dofter och smaker tycker jag.

freeofthoughts (652) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Pours a dark copper brown with a little beige head. The aroma is mild with a light grainy sweet must. The flavor is more full with an English old ale simplistic nature, a bit of a grainy bite with drying grainy bitter. Smooth overall, easy to drink with lower carbonation, lingering herbal earthy notes with a little touch of sweet dark fruits.

martin00sr (632) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2013
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.

dreamflower (576) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle in snifter shared with northropfrye. A warm caramel colour. Coffee and molasses aroma. My favourite thing about this beer is the aroma. Taste is quite rich, complex, but I’m not great at identifying flavours. A bit sweeter. I enjoy it.

Bottle bought at systembolaget late 2011. Beautiful deep clear deep red liquid with a nice compact big off white head. Aroma is spreading in the room. Aroma is of sweet fruits, raisins, lots of caramel and toffee, dates, dark fruits, sugars, bready. Smells amazing! Taste: a nice sweet flavor in there with caramel, milk chocolate and fruits. Perfect level of carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden but still detectable. Really nice flavour. Positively surprised by this one! I think some years in my cellar did this beer good :)
