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.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2013
330 ml bottle poured into small snifter. Deep caramel color with no head to speak of and very little carbonation. Medium intensity malty caramel aroma with notes of dried fruit and a touch of alcohol. Smooth caramel flavor without being overly sweet. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel with a warming alcohol finish. Overall, it’s greater than the sum of its parts.

Salmoniform (454) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Poured from bottle to glass. Amber hue with fizzy off white head. Aroma is sugar, esters, yeast, floral, caramel, honey, spice, ethanol. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a medium body and high carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a yeasty astringtness following and an ethanol finish. Overall, this is a nice floral Dopplebock although it is a bit hot from the ethanol.

Interesting one.. Color of dark copper, stable thick foam with good lacing. An overwhelming worty maltiness in aroma reminds of lollipops. Liquid sugar in taste. Alcohol feels very warm. Full body and sirupy texture. Lingering maltiness at finish. I’d rather recommend as cooking ingridient, than to drink.

Pours a dark cloudy amber with a small fizzy head. Aroma is of caramel malt, fruity, yeast and a bit of dark cherry essence mixed in. Taste is sweet caramel malt, fruity, yeast, maybe some toffee and a kind of sweet sherry alcohol flavor and hops bitterness. Palate is full, rich and fairly smooth body, with good carbonation. Finish the same as taste. Alcohol seems to be well hidden, but comes thru more as it warms up. Overall seems a bit strong for a doppelbock, not bad ( if sipped accordingly).

Yorker (1090) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour is caramel, dried fruits, alcohol, and malt – with some warming alcohol in the finish.

RexTalionis (2333) - FINLAND - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 04.09.2014. Pours clear amber in color with a creamy tan head. Sweetish dark fruityness with plums and raisins, dark syrup and dark bready notes in aroma, quite strong almond liqour notes as well. Sweetish, even slightly vinous taste at first, dark bready notes and ripe mashed plums and raisins fruityness in flavor later. This was quite a nice surprise. I do like sweetish dark fruityness and breadyness in this one. A sipper for sure.

A strong and sweet beer, incredibly tasty and almost no liqourish for its content in alcohol.
