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.

proc (342) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - AUG 22, 2003
Pours out to an amber color with a quickly, fading head. Aroma is that of malt, predominatly and is somewhat sweet to the smell. The alcohol is not hidden very well in this beer and tends to detract from what could be a very good assortment of fruit on the palate. Finish is strong. Not a very drinkable beer, but one to sipped. Average.

Clear copper body topped by a quickly dissipating tan head. Aroma is alcohol (sherry/rocket fuel), molasses, dough, light peach. Taste is syrupy sweet, alcohol, malty, raisin. Finish is toffee/molasses and medium alcohol burn. Syrupy full body with minimal carbonation. Not a bad beer, but nothing I'm likely to seek out again.

This is basically an after dinner liquor. It’s not a beer you would ever want to buy a 6 pack of, unless you were having a dinner party, I bet this beer be tasty over vanilla ice- cream. This beer has a heavy, rich, molasses like palate. This Eisbok has a sweet dramatic honey, caramel, and alcohol flavor and nose. A very enjoyable beer if you are ready for a strikingly heavy and sweet beer.

My first Eisbock. I like it. Deep red-orange, with initially big and dense yet eventually diminishing offwhite head. Aroma of malt, dried fruit, and alcohol. Flavor has lots of dried fruit, cotton candy, some malt, and brandylike notes. No discernable hops. Full-bodied. Much more balanced and pleasing than the previous ratings had led me to expect. If I had tasted it blind, I would have pegged it for something Belgian.

This beer seems to arouse feeling for or against...Sweet,alcoholic,balance of flavour is good considering 11%. I expected worse (Crest Super) and was moderately surprised.

Copper colour. No head. Strong malt, alcohol aroma. Thick body. Tastes like thick malty caramel syrup. Alcohol not as promenent as expected

Yikes. So a beer really can be too strong. Who knew. Pours a bright orange/amber with virtually no head. Aroma is strong malt and alcohol. Medium-bodied an very syrupy. Kind of tastes like a cross between a barley wine and malt liquor. Finish is syrupy sweet malt and caramel. This beer is definitely strong enough for me to be feeling the effects after one bottle. You definitely have to sip this one, but unfortunately this beer is not really good enough to be worth that much trouble.

Very malty. Extremely alcoholic and violent. Like a fine port wine. This beer makes you blush.
