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.

Copper color, intense reddish against a backlight, with a small head that quickly disappears. Malty aroma with some yeast. Deep taste to nuts, cake and alcohol. Very heavy and hard to finish, and not because the alcohol. Good beer for a dessert (and I’d rather have a Samichlaus), but nothing else.

guzgorog (582) - FRANCE - JAN 13, 2016
Belle couleur ambrée limpide avec des reflets rouges, fine mousse blanche qui s’efface rapidement. Senteur de caramel, et de raisins secs. Bouche sur les malts caramélisés, alcool très présent, des touches de fruits secs. Le corps est épais, bière très sucrée, carbo légère, faible amertume. Bourrine, fortement alcoolisée, assez ecoeurante.

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 9, 2016
Entre caoba y cobriza, apenas espuma de la que no queda ni rastro. Aspecto de copa de coñac. El aroma es muy potente, sin duda licórico, tonos dulces, fruto seco, naranja. En boca es muy contundente, de tono dulce predominante. Cuerpo potente, apenas gas. Calor. Sabor complejo, madera, almendra, naranja...Todo un copazo para la sobremesa.

rand (1410) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Dark reddish with a short beige head, lively crackling. Heavy malted aromas, alcohol, caramel, point of candied fruits. The taste is thick, malted, full of toffy, hints of roasted. It spreads on the caramel, malt coated by a little burning alcohol. Points of bitter and candied fruits.

Gubihumle (501) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
Flaske. Farven er kobber og skumkronen er hurtig væk. Aromaen er nødder, portvin og appelsin, og smagen matcher duften. Der er dog en vis bitterhed i smagen, der går kontra på sødmen og det er absolut et plus.

Clear , amber color . Medium-sized, off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and dried fruits. Sweet, but not nauseous, malty taste. Warming finish. Great balanced, malty brew.

Brewhemia (120) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2015
Clear amber color with off white head. Vinous aroma of alcohol, cherries, raisins and port wine. Tastes of cherries as well, and I like cherries. Very sweet, but a nice tangerine sweetness. Hefty beer with lots of flavor.

gripweed57 (1199) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2015
330 ml bottle. Garnet color topped by a small beige cap. Nose is vinous malt with notes of toasted cinnamon Pop Tarts. Flavor is bittersweet malt with a hint of salted caramel and brandy. Faint resiny, herbal hops. Finishes dry with a warming alcohol burn. I first had this about 30 years ago when it was one of the strongest beers in the world. Quite unique back then. Not so much now. Still, an interesting tasting brew with whiskey-like qualities.

Pours dark ruby with tan head. Aroma is vinous, with hints of strawberry jam. Mouth is powerful, deep, slightly sweet. Long finish.
