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.

Bottled:
Colour is hazy, orangey brown. Head is big and thick. Aroma is loads of sweet toffee with notes of resin and pine. Sweet and thick mouth feel. Flavour is sweet toffee, pine needles and a little bit of alcohol. Big and long bitterness. Fairly well balanced for it’s strength.

"deep fruits, caramel, plum. little hop presence. masks the abv quite well. low carbonation, and a bit thick, making it a decent sipper. i liked it, bit wasn’t blown away, though another friend thought it was the best of the night."

Cool_Bond (1488) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2014
Slightly fruity with berries on the nose. The taste is sweet, caramel, slightly fruity and light alcohol. Good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Easy to drink and minimal carbonation which appeals to me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Tinco (568) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
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 :)

VictorStr (1334) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2014
Mörka söta toner, kanske lite russin. Fyllig mikrofonen, ABVn lyser igen lite. Balans i smaken, beska och alkohol i eftersmaken.

beer_est_deus (688) - 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.

Sparf (121) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 15, 2014
2013-01-12 Lätt koralartad ton i en tämligen svag arom. Kolasirap i färg. Vacker. Stadigt ljust skum. Vattning, vinös smak och en kemisk sötma. En varmt mjuk beska stiger sakta i eftersmaken.

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

Linnet (1121) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2014
12 % ABV stated on the bottle. Ar: sweet, malty, caramel, butterscotch, alcohol, vanilla, earthy hops, grass, jam, honey, dried dark fruit Ap: slightly hazy copper/ruby colour, weak bubbly beige head. T: heavy sweetness, very low bitterness, ABV well integrated, slightly vinous, but that’s about it no real complexity to the taste, sort of one-dimensional. P: full bodied, low carbonation, warming finish. O: crude

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.

Ernest (6257) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle from BarleyWine, Copenhagen (batch OM001). Virtually no head. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (molasses, malt syrup), moderately yeasty (dough, sweat), with notes of alcohol, brown sugar. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, soft/flat carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Another dumper from Djaevlebryg, doggone it. Lots of raw yeast, various sugar aromas, and not much else. As consistently awesome as Gudelos is, they sure do have some shitty beers in their lineup.
