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.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2012
Bottled. Hazy, dark amber beer has thick and creamy head and nice lacing. Fruity and herbal hoppy nose, some raw apple and a touch of alcohol. Winegums and dried apricots. Sweetish, dark caramelly flavor and drier pale malts. Slightly resiny bitter finish with hints of toasted almonds. Slightly vegetal and alcoholic. Smooth, slick texture with alcoholic warmt. Medium bodied. Simple BW.

JorisPPattyn (9471) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Draught Reddish deep-amber beer, shortlived yellow head. Sweet, alcoholic, figs, sultana’s and honey. Terribly sweet nose. Bitterness overlying the near-syrupy taste/feel. Hoppiness is crude, however, nearly metallic. Just too sweet, and IMO nowhere 10.5%.

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

daje (3999) - NORWAY - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle, september 20th 2015. Dark brown body with a small offwhite head. Aroma of alcohol, caramel, red fruits. Taste of toffee, tangerine, perfume and oak. Booxy finish with a warm cara finish. Too alcohol driven taste for me.

OminouSC2 (450) - SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2016
Aroma is malted barley, caramel and some alcohol. The taste is not that good. Too sweet, a lot of alcohol and some odd spicy bitterness to it. During the finish you can taste the alcohol too much. Not great.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2008
Bottle, labelled "best before judgement day". Sweet, alcoholic piss/puke aroma; watery flavour which is quite impressive for a 10+% beer.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 2, 2009
Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours an amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is sweet with slight notes of sourness. The flavor is sweetness and fruit. The palate is sweet. Overall the beer needs some balance.
