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.

A: The pour is a deep dark amber color with a finger of off-white head. S: A surprisingly hoppy nose to this one. Lots of floral, perfumey hops with a bit of citrus peel and pine. Great maltiness with tons of dark fruit undertones, specifically black cherries and raisins. Definitely some alcohol as well. T: Just a bit of an alcohol bite to the beer, but it’s nicely masked by the sweet caramel, brown sugar, and molasses. Dark fruits help to do this as well. Still a solid hop character with lots of floral notes and piney bitterness. M: Just about full in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: A very well balanced barleywine that toes the line between hopped up American barleywine and sweeter old ale/English barleywine.

bhensonb (12322) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours ruby with a 3 finger foamy beige/tan head. Aroma of pine twigs and brown sugar. Med + body. Flavor is brown sugar, roasted caramel, and something resiny. Theres’ enough hop or something to mostly offset the typical barley wine sugar. There are unusual flavor aspects. Herby. And more herby. Damn good drink.

Christian (11722) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 21, 2008
Hazy red amber with a big and lasting off-white head. Fruity and vineous aroma with some cherry. Strong licorice notes. A hint of mushroom. Dry and alcoholic flavour, slihgtly roast and with some licorice. Strong and warming alcohol. All Djævlebryg is unusual and I give credit for that, but this one didn’t surprise me in a positive way.

thewolf (11440) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours a wonderful clear, dark amber with a fine, frothy yellowish head. Aroma is very fruity, lots of raisins, overripe plums, some dough, rye bread, caramel. Low to medium carbonation, foamy and a bit oily mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit too vinious (a bit too sharp, that is). Otherwise, flavours include the fruitiness from the aroma (subdued by the alcohol though). A good caramel sweet maltiness as well. A bit too much.

Pinball (11337) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle, 33cl. Best Before: judgement day (lol - label says so!). my first barley wine.. flavor was mostly alcohol, but beneath the strong alc, i got a well compsed well balanced unidentified taste, sort of like cognac or wihskey, but less bitter and more like fruit juice. Interesting brew, my first of its kind, and although i don’t like aged beer, this one is good. sophisticated.
