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.

Gyönyörű színben pompázó ital, melynek likőrösen édeskés, gyümölcsös, tejszínes aromája van hasonlóan változatos zamatokkal, melyeket remekül egészít ki a komló adta markáns végíz. Az alkohol jelenlétéről sem nehéz tudomást szereznünk, enyhe csípőssége még inkább felpezsdíti az amúgy sem egyhangú ízvilágot.

330ml Bottle from Beers Of Europe website (Ł2.49):
Strong, very sweet & quite malty with plenty of caramel & dark fruits. Some spice, cloves & dates with some raisins. The balance is good & the aroma complex, with some faint hints of alcohol coming through.
Caramel amber with a thin, bubbly beige head that disappears after a few seconds.
Sweet, very malty with faint alcohol. Spice, dark fruits & plum come through with some dates & figs. A good beer from the start with nice caramel flavours & a great balance that had a nice kick to it.
Medium to full bodied with some creaminess in places & plenty of sweetness throughout with some alcohol coming through, although it was hidden for the most part. Great balance & the beer was quite complex & rich, as well as being easy to drink.

I had fears that it would be a little strong and overpowering but thankfully this wasn’t the case. Very sweet & malty, the beer tasted great. Definitely one worth picking up & it was fairly cheap as well which always helps.

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, dark fruit, boozy alcohol, a slight nutty character, thin body detracts because of the booziness, sweet finish with no bitterness to balance.

Nice dark copper amber color with small tan head and no lacing, thick and oily. Aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, light fruit notes, and syruppy molasses. Okay overall.

Translucent amber with a thick foamy beige head. Medium-full body with light slickness and medium carbonation.

Aroma: bready munich malt, bready yeast notes, faint dark fruits.

Taste: bread, sulphur, minarality, medium kilned malt, and a fair amount of alcohol warmth in the finish.

Rotaldinho (113) - Paris, FRANCE - MAY 3, 2014
It releases medium to high intensity smell of blackberries and toast. It is sweet in the mouth and more round as it warms. Its texture is very thick at the edge of sweet. Medium to high intensity final marked by a strong alcoholic presence that amplifies the aftertaste. Fruity notes of mandarin, blackcurrant and blackberry. Don’t be fool by the strong alcoholic presence it’s quite good.
