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.

Bright orange copper color with a fleeting off white head. Sweet fruit, (oranges, cherries and peaches) malt and ruber aroma. Wafts of alcohol. Oily texture with early sweetness that turns to a lacquer alcohol finish that burns in the mouth. Finish is just too biting and thin (like a shot of jaegemeister) to make this one more enjoyable.

Pours a nice, but light, amber color that is crystal clear and has a thin, off-white head. The aroma is quite interesting, strong alcohol, bready malt, a light sweetness and very identifiable strength. The flavor is a little too sweet for me. Toffee and simple syrup dominate behind the overpowering alcohol. I don't mind a big beer, but not one that tastes like alcohol with hints of nothingness in the back.

Aroma is that of brown sugar and artificial rumsoaked cherries. Very alcoholic. Cringeworthy. Covered with a soapy film.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - MAR 24, 2003
This beer is dominated by its malts. They're evidenced in the aroma, flavor, aftertaste and just about everywhere else. It makes for a wonderful couple of sips but it loses is uniqueness and settles into freak show brew mode. This beer also has a subtle soy character that you find in some higher alcohol unbalance malty beers. Worthy a taste for its oddity, but not a beer I will seek out again.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2003
An amber body is topped by a thin white quickly disappearing sodalike head with no lace. Sweet malty aroma with subtle alcohol notes and a maple syrup character. Sweet strong malt flavor with maple syrup and caramel notes and very light alcohol notes. Thick and chewy on the palate with tingling on the tongue. Full bodied and warming.

I took one sip of this beer and I had only one comment to make about this beer to my BF and that was "yuck this tastes like medicine"!!

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Nice lively pour with a white/off white head of fine bubbles. It has an clear amber body with a fruity aroma. Initial taste was not one that I preferred. It had an acrid flavor with carbonated bubbles rising off my tongue. My feelings are that I don't much care for this brew.

Bottled. Malt malt alcohol alcohol with a hint of some sort of berry flavor. Finished with a nice sweet flavor.

Strawberry-blonde appearance, with an aroma of strawberries and alcohol, but no head what-so-ever. Strawberries in the flavor as well, nice maltiness - the sherry-like qualities are very evident. The alcohol comes through a little too much in the finish, drowning out the otherwise pleasant flavors of the beer. For my first eisbock, this is a mostly pleasant experience.

Aroma is heavy with malts and vanilla candy. The finish is heavy with alcohol. No head retention at all, and the body is a medium amber. In the flavor I can make out some types of winter fruits, such as plums. A very heavy and strong beer!
