COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

NordicV (1162) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2014
Bärnstensfärgad öl med gulvitt skum. Doften är alkoholsöt med inslag av vingummi. Även smaken har mycket alkoholsötma med en del maltighet. Alkoholvärme och lite sirapstjock munkänsla.

PapaVillum (440) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 33 cl, flaske, 11,0 % ABV, nydt på Berlin Bar på Gl. Kongevej på Frederiksberg. Kobberrød tysk øl med ca. 3 cm offwhite-farvet skumtop. Sødlig duft, men lidt ubestemmelig og ikke særligt karakteristisk. Sødlig og kraftfuld smag. Det søde er i balance med det bitre, som også er til stede. God lang og kraftig eftersmag af alkohol, som varmer godt i svælget. Ugenkendelig smag af noget bittersødt i slutningen af eftersmagen. Kulsyren i øllet er ikke nedtonet, men på et middel niveau. En spændende stærk øl, som skal smages igen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (658) - 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.

Jokk (46) - Odessa, UKRAINE - DEC 7, 2013
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.

SamP01 (568) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2013
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).
