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.

Sask89 (398) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Pours a deep amber colour, cloudy, with a small tan head. Aroma is full of caramel malt and some slight floral hop scents. Taste is quite sweet with a nice bitterness to it as well. Full bodied, smooth and creamy mouth feel and livelier carbonation. Overall a solid barley wine.

Bottle, pours slightly hazy mahogony with big off white head. Aroma is malty with caramel. Taste is caramel, little bit hoppy, sweet. Nice bitterness. Not mindblowning but still enjoyable.

dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle. Pours a beautyful dark amber with a smalle creamy head. Aroma of raisins and prunes and it has som viniousity to it. Flavour is again raisins and prunes with a nice viniousity and a dryness in the end. It is very creamy and has a nice palate.

soyorganic (277) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Very quality beer. Rich aroma of plum, dark fruit, bubblegum-esque. Taste like the aroma, sweet caramel dark fruit -- English barley wine-esque. But unlike most English barley wines this one has some dark malt/hop backbone that provides a bit of bitterness to round the taste. I really like this beer.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUL 11, 2009
A nice looking red-brown beer with a small tan head. Aroma is roasty malt, with some sweetness and nutiness. The flavor is sweet caramel malts, molasses, and dried fruit. Deliciously syrupy mouthfeel. Decent, but not the best BW i’ve had.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm, Sweden. Malty sweet aroma with some grassy notes from the hops. Taste is bitter and rich, stays in the mouth long after the first sip, awesome. Texture is oily and smooth, feels thick. Great barley wine.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2008
Yet another good beer from this brewery. Fruity aroma and a flavor with much volume - sweet, but not overly.

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.

Sweet aroma with an odour of caramel and nuts. Nice cloudy colour with a thick white head. Taste of honey and very sweet - maybe a bit too much.
