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.

DrSilverworm (7938) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2013
11.2oz bottle, code on back reads 2213293. Clear amber / orange color. Good one-finger khaki head. Fades to a decent-sized ring around the edge, but doesn’t leave any lace. Bigger body. Soft, smooth carbonation. More dry texture. Sweet taste (indeed, not cloying), and about the amount of booze taste you would expect from 11% ABV. Though there isn’t any bothersome burn or bite for me, just a nice bit of warmth. After taste has kind of an Eastern European malt liquor feel to it, though. Not much to the aroma, though. Just a caramel sweet and nutty malt flavor, kind of a sherry aroma. Light tropical fruit notes. Solid eisbock

Dark jantar reddish colour with no head. Smell of herbs, alcohol, dark fruits. Tast of caramel, dark fruits, very malty, presence od alcohol is obvious. Strong, complex beer.

Hamirubi (165) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2015
33cl bottle. Often overpriced, but I really, really like it. Orange fluid, no head. The flavours hint at strong alcohol and surely indicate sweetness. Most people will find it too outspoken, but I adore the cognac, spiritlike sensation - an ending that lasts forever. The beer is thick and strong, malty enough. It also is very sweet, but this fits the character.

Very good and strong Aroma, beautifull appearance but difficult to drink... Like all doppelbock to me. Very sweet and malty.

rjplumer (588) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Malty sweet tangerine-like aroma. Brown and reddish body. Thin head skims the top. Thick warming mouth feel. Mild sweetness. Fruit and caramel sweet. Medium bitter.

Bière forte, peu complexe et pas équilibrée. Arôme trop alcoolisé qui prend le dessus sur tout le reste, on note tout de même une touche de sweet caramel. Je me demande quand même si ce que je viens de boire était bien une bière.

rondphoto (2602) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 13, 2015
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear bright amber brown color, 1" ivory head, dots and blobs of lace. Taste is strong alcoholic malt that forces its way through the palate to a finish that has a minimum of hops - not needed with 11% abv. Not complex. Only strong. Barely a beer in my experience.

angel77 (1251) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 8, 2015
Botella de 33 cl varias veces, la ultima en el momento en el festival de la birra de salinas el 26-07-2014. Lote g2 hasta 05-06-2015. Color ámbar oscuro con muy poca espuma beige. Sabores y aromas maltosos ligeramente tostados potentes y con una buena dosis alcohólica. Paso por boca algo pastoso. Buena y potente, comparada con la bush, la supera. Para repetir.
