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.

Rasmus40 (22128) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2011
Clear orange with a big beige head. Aroma is very sweet malty, caramel, spicy and rather alcoholic. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Sweet finish with lots of alcohol. Too sweet and too much alcohol. 120610

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2008 2008-02-08, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Dark red mahogany color; creamy head. The aroma is alcoholic, with light caramel. It has a medium body strength, not to be confused with the alcohol, that immediately gets in the mouth; there is some caramel and mild chocolate flavor, with traces of vegetables. Wrong and extremely alcoholic; a "malty malt liquor". I won’t spend more words, as this beer doesn’t deserve much.

2008-01-28, draught at Cockney Pub, Århus, 6-4-7-3-13=33
Hazy dark amber color; creamy head; sticky lace. It has a very mild aroma, of malt, and something similar to a Malt Liquor. It’s full bodied, with a strong malt and caramel flavor, unfortunately for me corrected by a too strong sweet liquorice in the beginning; the liquorice then disappears a bit, and some sweet nutty trace comes in. It’s quite bitter and the final is long, with the malt too and the alcohol gently warms the mouth. Quite good, but the liquorice is not my liking.

mcberko (19805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2012
500mL bottle, pours a murky dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma of dark fruits (raisins, grapes, black currants), caramel and toffee, and candied sugar. Flavour is extremely well-balanced, with tons of dark fruits as aforementioned, caramel malts, toffee, decent hop character, some coffee, a bit vinous (red wine) and slight sweetness. This should be rated higher than it is. Excellent depth and design on this.

saxo (19569) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are fruits, malt, hops and flowers. Quite vinous.

2.6
harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
On tap at EBF 08. It’s not really their best style. It’s a hoppy sweet barley wine. Bit musty. Not my favourite from this outstanding brewery.

Dark nut brown color, thick beige head. Berry-like, malty nose. Very sticky, sugary beer, lots of caramel. Same time very drinkable. Some carbonation. Malty, caramelly, woody hoppy aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours muddy brown. Nose/taste of dark fruit, coffee, roasted malt and toasted nuts. Medium body. Finishes slightly dry.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2008
Draught (EBF2008) - thanks oh6gdx!
Beautiful sweet dark fruity hoppy aroma. Some alcohol burn, but very tasty tangy hops. Good sipper.
