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.

lovely coloured beer, you don’t taste the rheinheitsgebot, it’s a little bit like a barley wine, nice colour

thirstyrabbit (1713) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle. Bronze body, head disappears to nothing quite fast. Aroma has sweet caramel, toffee and almonds. Full mouthfeel, a bit sticky but not syrupy like barley wines. Taste has almonds, caramel and big bready malts. Simple yet effective. Finish has alcohol heat and some sweetness but indeed, it never gets cloying. So for a 11% brew it’s rather well drinkable.

Marduk (6134) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 30, 2016
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber color. Foamy head at start, but disappears quite quickly. Sweet, alcohol, metallic, malty in aroma. Sweet, almost raisins, malty, nutty oiliness in taste. Alcohol in aftertaste. Soft carbonation. Sweet and boozy, but not a horror. Good start for a day!

Cristobal37 (758) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 2, 2016
Vom Flasche. Slightly boozy cherry wood aroma. Ambet and all head dissipates quite quickly. Nice sweet some marzipan and wood barrel. Warms up, it IS pretty strong. Medicinal herbs and a long syrupy sticky finish on this guy. Really not baf, but it’s a huge beer and not something I would drink often.

Bottle - clear golden orange, low carbonation and no head. Sweet aroma and very sweet tasting - too malty flowery for me. Ok mouthfeel.

BlueGaljoen (104) - FRANCE - JUN 23, 2016
Atypique pour une bière allemande. Couleur rouille, belle carbonatation. Du sucre et de l’alcool bien maitrisé. Amertume à peine perceptible.

NOTA DE CATA: - Color: Eku 28 es Color: Tostado. Espuma: Poca y desaparece enseguida - Boca: Sabor: Muy intenso caracterizado por la gran cantidad de azúcar (toque de regaliz, caramelo ).

Moravius (1076) - 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 (153) - 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 (1302) - 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.
