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.

Christian (12619) - 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 (11984) - 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 (11896) - 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.

Draught @ Lord Nelson, Cph. Burgundy coloured. uncelar. light brown dense head. Spice, fruits, alcohol and a light sweetness in the aroma. flaovour as well spiced and fruity. Loads of alcohol present. Some herbal and light ripe fruits notable. Medium to full bodied. Dry. Is light bitter and full of alcohol in the end. Might mature a bit over time. Nice though.

100ml on tap at the Copenhagen Beer Festival 09. Very inviting cognac look, deep dark amber body with patchworks on the surface. Malty sweetness lies at the heart of the aroma. Caramel maltiness in flavour. Full bodied with warming alcohol. Ale cosiness in every sip (16.05.2009).
