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.

P:ours a cloudy dark reddish amber with a big frothy light brown head. Aroma of sweet dried fruits, toffee, nuts, rich sweet malts and a hint of some fruity esthers. Taste is sweet malts up front with some toffee, dried fruits, oak, slight nuts and a smooth alcohol warming on the finish. Overall a very pleasant barley wine.

Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Hazy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Dark fruit and alcohol nose, flavor is dark fruit, caramel and some alcohol. Decent barleywine. Pricey at $9.99 for a 500ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, MA.

500 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a hazed fig-amber color with a small off-white head that settles into a small film with a ring. Small rising carbonation bubbles are visible on the edges. Aroma of toffee, dates, figs, raisins, brown sugar, and toast. Right on the money. Flavor of toffee, brown sugar, raisins, dates, and figs, with some really nice spiciness late, like a little black pepper and rye. Nice and balanced, and not overly sticky or sweet. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. I really enjoyed this, and was pleasantly surprised because I was a bit disappointed with Gudelos.

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 :)

Bottle. Dark brown with medium off white creamy head. Aroma is vinous with roasted malt, chocolate, liquerice and toffee. Sweet flavor with chocolate, liquerice, hops and fruits. Full bodied. Alcohol very well hidden. Finishes bitter. Lovely!

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2008
Dark coppery colored with cloudy appearance. Little yellow head. Weird christmas spicy gingery-caardamom aroma with hints of raisins and hops, mild alcohol also here. Medium bodied. Flavor is also interesting with same ginger dominating with mild port wine and caramel. Aftertaste dries strongly with still this spiciness and thin positive cardboard and mild alcohol. Interesting though different devil here.

Cloudy light amber color. Aroma is loaded with caramel, toffee, oak, light hops and some good rich fruity notes. Flavor is sweet and finishes with a very light hop bite. I really enjoy the caramel and toffee notes in this.

Amazing bonus beer courtesy of madsberg. Thanks mads. Pours deep amber with thin tan head. The aroma is full with loads of dark fruitiness, sweet nutty extract butter and sweet yummy goodness. The taste is smooth rich blended dark fruity yum with dates, prunes, raisins, brown sugar and a light amount of booze. Wow, this is very nice and will only improve will years of cellaring.
