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.

33cl bottle. Often overpriced, but I really, really like it. Orange fluid, no head. The flavours hint at strong alcohol and surely indicate sweetness. Most people will find it too outspoken, but I adore the cognac, spiritlike sensation - an ending that lasts forever. The beer is thick and strong, malty enough. It also is very sweet, but this fits the character.

Very good and strong Aroma, beautifull appearance but difficult to drink... Like all doppelbock to me. Very sweet and malty.

Malty sweet tangerine-like aroma. Brown and reddish body. Thin head skims the top. Thick warming mouth feel. Mild sweetness. Fruit and caramel sweet. Medium bitter.

Bière forte, peu complexe et pas équilibrée. Arôme trop alcoolisé qui prend le dessus sur tout le reste, on note tout de même une touche de sweet caramel. Je me demande quand même si ce que je viens de boire était bien une bière.

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.
