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.

1/2 pint at Lord Nelson. Pours hazy amber with a dense off-white head. Malty and slight hoppy aroma. Flavour is sweet malty with a slight spice note. Quite sweet actually. Has a strange spice note on top of the sweet malt. Ends with a solid bitterness and more of that undefineable herbal/spice note.

Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2008
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours an almost clear, orangey brown with a small, creamy, beige head. Sweetish caramel aroma. Medium body, completely dominated by huge amounts of sweet caramel, some lightly spicy, medicinal notes and a somewhat unrefined, raw bitterness. Not exactly a study in complexity as it is. I’m sure some cellaring will do good to this - perhaps even to doomsday, as the back label suggests. 311207

Grovlam (4171) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2008
Huge thick beige head that mostly lasted. Very sparkling appearance with an amber color. Fair display of lacework. Aroma of bread, toasted malt, light alcohol, light fruity notes and hint of yeast and floral notes as well. Over the palate comes toffee, vinous and very malty base with a somewhat dusty grain / caramels feel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet flavor with low bitterness. Sweet malty / toffee like finish with a bitter alcoholic twist.

Rating #592, bottle from Barley Wine

Easily opaque brown-red beer with a green hue. Ok head. Aroma has malts, loads of hops, caramel, alcohol, berries. Or as one of my friends called it: Beer sirup. Flavor of malts, liquorice, blackcurrant, raspberries, raisins, menthol, sweetness, alcohol and a medium bitter finish. Medium thickness, nicely soft. Good!

Nuffield (3900) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2011
Sweet and warming, but this wasn’t my favorite way to interpret the barleywine style. Caramel and sweetness, but the finish ended too bitter and the body didn’t support it quite to my liking.
