The hosts started the match strong – visiting goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann tipped over a Shandon Baptiste shot in the fourth minute.
Bachmann then had to keep out a Mbuemo effort before guests Watford sprung to life midway through the first half.
Joshua King finally at least hit the post for the visitors in the 24th minute.
And then, Dennis fired Watford ahead less than 60 seconds later. We saw him powering in a thumping header from a Tom Cleverley corner.
Brentford pressed after the break and Bachmann produced another fine save in the 74th minute. The Watford goalkeeper palmed away a stinging shot by Christian Noergaard.
King also had an effort smothered, at the other end of the pitch, by the hosts’ goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez.
But the home side drew level in the 84th minute as Jansson glanced in a close-range header.
Finally, Mbeumo somehow turned the match with a penalty deep into stoppage time after William Troost-Ekong fouled substitute Saman Ghoddos.
