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.

Joakgust (933) - 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.

arone12 (919) - Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2011
Pours an oaky brown color with a reddish tint to the head. Aroma is a bit sweet with some brown sugar as well as some hops! Drink is smooth. Nice creamy taste with some bitter hops rounding off the beer. Has a bit of a woody taste to it as well.

annunz123 (877) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2012
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 (869) - 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.

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

martin00sr (821) - 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.

MotherBrother (744) - 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.

beer_est_deus (730) - örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2014
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.

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.
