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.

Backlog. Slightly too sweet for my taste, but definitely a decent example of the style.

Smaken är komplex, enligt katalogbeskrivningen. Kanhända, men det hamnar i så fall i slagskugga av den långt framskjutna alkoholsmaken, som irriterar och distraherar. Den borde ha tuktats bättre, för nu känns det som en von oben-ölprovning som ramlat ned i rännstenen.

dreamflower (793) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle in snifter shared with northropfrye. A warm caramel colour. Coffee and molasses aroma. My favourite thing about this beer is the aroma. Taste is quite rich, complex, but I’m not great at identifying flavours. A bit sweeter. I enjoy it.

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Pours a dark copper brown with a little beige head. The aroma is mild with a light grainy sweet must. The flavor is more full with an English old ale simplistic nature, a bit of a grainy bite with drying grainy bitter. Smooth overall, easy to drink with lower carbonation, lingering herbal earthy notes with a little touch of sweet dark fruits.

Tinco (623) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
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 :)

4.2
doublebock (558) - California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Orange brown color with nary of layer of foam. Sweet malty caramel candy and apple aroma. Nice chewy maltiness layered with dark fruits and molasses. Picking up some nice brandy flavors. Finishes with a crisp hoppy bite that sits on the tongue for a while.

3.8
Sask89 (530) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Pours a deep amber colour, cloudy, with a small tan head. Aroma is full of caramel malt and some slight floral hop scents. Taste is quite sweet with a nice bitterness to it as well. Full bodied, smooth and creamy mouth feel and livelier carbonation. Overall a solid barley wine.

3.6
dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Pours deep hazy ruby with a tight egg shell white head. Aroma is sweet barley, caramel, toffee, floral leather and molasses. Taste is sweet balanced caramel and spicy hops, very grainy. Body is silky smooth, medium/heavy, no abv apparent, long barley grain finish. Overall, pretty good but not as much as I expected.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2011
Bottle shared by akevitt. Pours a cloudy, red-amber body with a frothy, yellowish brown head. Aroma of sweet malts, bread, sugars, and prune. Taste is the same but with more dark fruit character. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Bitter hop finish with a slightly metallic aftertaste and alcohol burn.
