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.

erickok's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
erickok (5750) - Leuven, - FEB 2, 2013
Clean brown body with no head at all. Brown sugar, bock like spices, clean yeast and light Bready malts. Taste is sweet like cake or donuts, only a sharp bitterness in the end. Strong alcoholic feel, little yet big carbonation. Not smooth enough, full enough or rich enough to justify the alcohol. And it looks like cheap bum lager. No thanks. (50cl can from Carrefour in Tours)

Acaro (66) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 23, 2017
Aroma: Strong caramel and toast notes with an alcoholic touch. Appearance: Red amber color with hazy liquid and minimal white head. Taste: Heavy sweet touch with light sour notes. Palate: Full body with sticky oily texture and flat carbonation. Long sweet and alcoholic finish. Overall: The kind of beer you like or not, there is not a middle point. I have tried beers with higher alcohol percentage with less alcoholic feeling.

floydslip (378) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 10, 2017
Deep mahogany colored beer with a medium foamy light beige head that drops thick lace. Nose of candied nuts, caramel, and toffee, but it’s a bit faint. Flavor is more pronounced and sweet with the same basic flavors as the nose with an overarching acrid flavor that is a bit off-putting. Hides the alcohol well, but the flavor is a bit strange.

imdownthepub (14027) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Bottled, 330ml aged 9.5yrs from the LeClerc Hypermarket, Vouziers, Ardennes, France. Clear amber with short beige head. There is a boozy, sherry nose to this on opening, there was still plenty of natural fizz to this but flattened out on pouring. Fruity, apricot notes, loads of alcohol and really very sweet. Warming on a cold frosty winters evening. It’s okay.

Fules (1051) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - DEC 26, 2016
Kicsi, gyorsan elillanó hab, gyönyörű rézszín. Malátás, karamelles illat, némi gyümölcsös beütéssel. Édes karamelles, malátás ízvilág, gyümölcsös és konyakos aromákkal. Testes, közepesen szénsavas, enyhén kesernyés. Egy kicsit kevesebb alkoholosság és egészen jó sör lenne.

Kauge (1833) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle from Alcostock in Tallinn (€ 1.99). BB 02.05.2017. Pours clear, deep golden with a head that dissipates really fast. Aroma is pretty nice initially, strong caramel and malts, but gets a bit too boozy later on. Tastes less as attractive, cheapish, boozy, caramel most dominant, but it’s in a way quite attractive. Crisp carbonation, lightish medium body. Potential headache. Better than expected though. Film pairing: Jodorowsky’s ’Holy Mountain’.

z0live (6) - FRANCE - DEC 9, 2016 does not count
Couleur ambrée limpide, mousse peu présente. De beaux arômes de framboises et de fruits rouge au nez, mais une fois en bouche, un gout trčs (trop) sucré et alcoolisé (trop) avec un léger gout de café trop discret.

lbianchi66 (358) - FRANCE - NOV 4, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2017 Robe ambrée et limpide. La mousse ne tient pas. Arômes fumé un peu café et beaucoup d’alcool. Goűt hyper astringent, texture sirupeuse, que de l’alcool. Imbuvable.

martjoobolut (3790) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 21, 2016
Bottle (from Alcostock). Pours amber. Aroma is sweet, malt, caramel, some fruits, and a lot of booze. Flavor is sweet and bitter, sugar, booze, malt, caramel, booze, some fruits, grains, some cardboard. Finish is booze and sweet caramel with some bitterness. Overall: not good, not good at all. More hobo style ESL than proper doppelbock.
