Djaevlebryg Old Mephisto Barleywine

605126

Orange brown color with a thin layer of tan 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.

Dark brown-purplish color with thin white head. Aroma of chocolate malt, biscuits, maple syrup and bourbon. Taste is…hello flavor country, we’ve got a whole lot of complexity going on here: Vanilla, raisins, toasted malt, molasses, bourbon. The finish has another layer of oakiness followed by a tart sweetness. Surprisingly light body for a barleywine. More please.
