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.

The aroma is delicate, sugary, smooth, woody, sexy. Pours amber with a small, creamy head and light carbonation. The beer is sweet, medium bodied, and syrupy. The finish is short, warming, and fruity, with only some alcohol. This is a great winter warmer, similar in some ways to the Kulmbacher Eisbock. It is elegant, easy to drink, warming, and overall impressive. I’m somewhat surprised by the overall Ratebeer score.

Copper colored, small to no beige head, non lasting. Aroma is of malt, candy caramel-fruity and dried fruits, pretty sweet, notes of alcohol. Taste is moderate+ sweet caramel and candied fruits, some nuts, toffee, low bitterness, alcohol and alcohol warmth provided. Medium to strong bodied and moderate carbonation, thick and syrupy.

Olor a frutas secas, vainilla y un tostado especial. Escasa espuma, su coloración es medianamente cristalina con una turbiedad al final (supongo que por el asiento natural) de un tono ambar rojizo muy llamativo. El sabor es ligeramente dulce con notas amargas y fuerte presencia de lúpulo. El alcohol está presente pero no eclipsa el conjunto en ningún momento. Deja una sensación similar al licor al final del trago. Si no gustan de cervezas fuertes y de alto gradaje, no se le acerquen, es bastante agresiva para gustos sutiles.

MarkoNm (1744) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 30, 2015
Pours a clear amber color, topped with a medium off-white head. Malty aroma, dark fruity feel and caramel. Taste is sweet and malty, lots of alcohol presence (too much), some bitterness in the finish and metallic a bit. Just not nice.

mmmbeer (1334) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2015
11.2 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a 85% transparent (other 15 is kind of cloudy), darkened brown color, 2mm white foamy head formed and laced very nicely upon the vessel. Aroma of alcohol, clove, and banana. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is washed in a sea of alcohol much like I will be shortly, hard clove in the middle, finish is very boozy. Would tear this apart, but I’m getting loaded tonight!

El aroma es escaso, sobretodo alcoholico. Color brillante rojo, muy bonito. El sabor a alcohol, nueces, ahumado. Demasiados grados para beberla a mediodia...

Better than the ratings it gets. Quite sweet and with pronounced alcohol, but really not unpleasant for the seasoned drinker.

Zupastan (95) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2015
Amber beer with close to no head. Smell is caramel, banana, alcohol. Taste is caramel, almost wine-ish, banana. Aftertaste is sugary, some bitter off-flavour that lasts for a while, bit metallic. Not a fan.

AshtonMcCobb (4074) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - deep amber with a thin head that falls away very quickly. Nose - honey, maybe some red fruits and definitely a boozy backdrop. Taste - toffe and honey. Maybe oranges. Luscious boozy finish. Palate - full bodied with a rich sweet middle section and a tangy and still rich and sweet finish. Overall - not exactly balanced or refreshing but nicely indulgent like a barley wine in some ways.

Brandon1989 (437) - Euless, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Pours a mostly clear amber color with a medium sized off white head that had great retention and left a good amount of lacing around the glass. The aroma is dark fruits, figs, some sugar, and yeast. The taste is sweet and fruity up front and you also pick up the alcohol. On the back-end you pick up some bitterness and dark fruits and figs. The mouthfeel is medium to heavy and the drinkability is low, it is quite a sipper.
