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.

gronahuset (8) - Falköping, SWEDEN - JAN 16, 2012 does not count
I think that to much hops bitterness in a Barley Wine some what spoils the library atmosphere of the beer. An atmosphere that I like very much and constantly returns to, But not with this barley wine. I rather have Gudelös in the glass.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2008
Fad. Flot mørk ravfarvet øl, med et godt bid. Første indtryk er en fin engelsk BW, men langsomt sniger der sig en medicinsk note ind der bliver til en ordentlig gang hostesaft, hvilket gør at den kun kan nydes i meget begrænset mængder. Dette trækker 0.4 point ned.
