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.

brokensail (16432) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 27, 2011
A: The pour is a deep dark amber color with a finger of off-white head. S: A surprisingly hoppy nose to this one. Lots of floral, perfumey hops with a bit of citrus peel and pine. Great maltiness with tons of dark fruit undertones, specifically black cherries and raisins. Definitely some alcohol as well. T: Just a bit of an alcohol bite to the beer, but it’s nicely masked by the sweet caramel, brown sugar, and molasses. Dark fruits help to do this as well. Still a solid hop character with lots of floral notes and piney bitterness. M: Just about full in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: A very well balanced barleywine that toes the line between hopped up American barleywine and sweeter old ale/English barleywine.

Tap @ Olbaren, Copenhagen. Pours dark amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet malty, vinous & spicy. Full bodied & very smooth. Alcohol is well hidden & the beer is extremely easy drinkable. Sweet caramel & anise/herbs dominates like in Mystikale! Nice Barley wine!

bhensonb (15088) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Pours ruby with a 3 finger foamy beige/tan head. Aroma of pine twigs and brown sugar. Med + body. Flavor is brown sugar, roasted caramel, and something resiny. Theres’ enough hop or something to mostly offset the typical barley wine sugar. There are unusual flavor aspects. Herby. And more herby. Damn good drink.
