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.

Not knowing exactly how to categorize this beer, it's hard to tell how we'll it meets the expectations of its type. Needless to say however, at 11% ABV it packs a wallop, more like the Russian variants of a malt liquor than its German heritage would suggest. Not that unlike a Belgian dubbel with the presence of a quad, it just fails to present enough flavor to underscore its abundant alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Moravius (1041) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2016
Flasche (33 cl) von Grabsch, Berlin. - Goldbraun, klar. - Geruch sirupartig karamelsüß mit Rübenkraut und schwacher holziger Herbe. - Antrunk erdrückend breit zuckersüß-malzbitter mit Karamel, Rübensirup und gebrannten Mandeln, abgerundet durch leicht krautige Herbe, die eher an Hustensirup als an Hopfen erinnert. Mild rezent, mastig. Im Abgang unaromatisch schroffe Malzbittere und noch mehr Rübensirup. - Karikatur eines guten Bockbiers, nur mit Mühe genießbar. Ein Witz, so etwas mit Portwein zu vergleichen ...

AdolfoCC (112) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - APR 8, 2016
APARIENCIA: color ambar rojizo, traslucida, se observa algo de actividad de carbonatación, corona de espuma color blanco, de burbuja compacta y algunas abierta, que desaparece rápidamente. AROMA: Intenso el caramelo, azúcares quemadas y algo de alcohol es lo que predomina, se aprecian discretas notas de frutos rojos, como grosella. SABOR: el caramelo domina, junto con azúcares quemados y discretos frutos rojos, el alcohol presente, se siente y llega a ser algo agresivo. En el retrogusto si llega a haber ligero amargor, pero es opacado por el dulzor, no astringente, el alcohol persiste algo agresivo. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo moderado ligero, carbonatación moderada. RESUMEN: el alcohol en esta cerveza llega a ser astringente y agresivo.

ordybill (1171) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Poured from an 11.2 OZ bottle into a tulip glass. The appearance is a light copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma is a very nice blend of malt, fruit and alcohol. The taste is big on fruit with some malt.

Hopverdju (404) - BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2016
Amberkleurig bier met weinig wit schuim. Geur: appelsien, likeur, honing, vineus. Smaak: stroperig, alcoholisch, zoetig. Weinig koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: weinig. Hoe raar het ook mag klinken: flauw, straf bier.

Shanshirohop (86) - Zaragoza, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2016
Una alemana de alta graduación que no me parece nada mal, es un buen licor sólo para momentos puntuales, debido a su destacado golpe alcohólico que no se acaba de homogenizar con la cerveza.

McSherman (474) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 11, 2016
Farbe: Dunkles Bernstein, mit wenig Schaum. Geruch: malzig, karamellig, holzig Geschmack: dominiert wird der Geschmack vom malzigen, leicht rauchigen Whisky-Aromen, etwas Vanille und Karamell. Dabei nur wenig bitter, aber spürbar alkoholisch und süß. Gelungenes Bier!

Not my favorite.

guzgorog (638) - 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 (1750) - 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 (1470) - 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.
