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.

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.

sinfull (1590) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2015
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 (297) - 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 (1748) - 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.

kajser27 (1707) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 30, 2015
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.

Rod_beer (65) - DF, MEXICO - AUG 8, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2016 Clear amber colour, small bubbles white head that fades away quickly. Aroma of dried fruits, licorice, nuts, raisins, molases and caramel. Taste is intense sweet, a bit and subtle bitter at the end. Hints of caramel, nuts and hops. Strong alcoholic sensation with every drink, oily texture, medium body, kind of astringent. Is hard to drink, a very aggresive beer. My favorite doppebock.

MarkoNm (2624) - 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.
