This world-famous beer has the character and richness to stand in for fine sherry or port. Just the right degree of sweetness - never cloying; wonderfully aromatic and warming. EKU 28 is the one whenever something good and strong is needed.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear bright amber brown color, 1" ivory head, dots and blobs of lace. Taste is strong alcoholic malt that forces its way through the palate to a finish that has a minimum of hops - not needed with 11% abv. Not complex. Only strong. Barely a beer in my experience.

Botella de 33 cl varias veces, la ultima en el momento en el festival de la birra de salinas el 26-07-2014. Lote g2 hasta 05-06-2015. Color ámbar oscuro con muy poca espuma beige. Sabores y aromas maltosos ligeramente tostados potentes y con una buena dosis alcohólica. Paso por boca algo pastoso. Buena y potente, comparada con la bush, la supera. Para repetir.

Reviewed on 14/12/14. Bottle, 330ml. A copper-redish beer with a medium size head. Aroma is of chestnuts, spices, alcohol, roasted malt and wood. Taste is bitter with a strong alcoholic finish that slightly reminds me of cough syrup. Heavy character with a lot of astringency. Almost no carbonation. Gets out of control at the end.

Certainly one of the most underrated beers I’ve tried (the argument refers to the average score in Ratebeer). Fairly high alcohol level is a great hidden. Excellent winter beer for a very reasonable price.

This is a delicious Doppelbock. I am drinking this bier and the Celebrator Doppelbock as well. The EKU 28 is sweeter and maltier in flavor whereas the Celebrator is darker and has slight smoky quality. Both are from bottles so that makes a huge difference, as I had the Celebrator on tap earlier this week at Grunauer Restaurant in KC, MO. On tap is definitely a bigger tasting bier. I like drinking both biers and taking a sip of EKU 28 followed by a sip of Ayinger Celebrator. Life is good!

Ambrée limpide, carbo tres faible, pas de collet. Aromes caramel fruits rouges et noisettes Trop sucrée et alcooleux malgré des saveurs caramel sympa.

Bottle, 21 years past bb... Bless you, MiP... Murky brown, small, airy offwhite head. Heavy, oxidised, malty candy aroma. Similar flavour, very sweet, dark caramel. Surprising.

Bottle, 21 years past The BBD! Pours hazy dark ruby with no head at all. Clear aroma of barrel, malt and caramel. Dusty onset, replaced by sweet notes of malt, caramel and fruit. Sweet aftertaste with subtle sourish notes. Tastes like a decent barley wine, actually. Nice.
