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.

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Appearance is a clear amber ale with a nice 1 finger white head. Aroma is very malty and peppery aroma with a hint of caramel. Taste is malty and smooth that finishes with some sweetness, maybe too much as it warms up. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth and medium. Not much carbonation. A solid eisbock!

WillemsUrenkel (1978) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 9, 2017
0,33 l bottle from Getränkefeinkost, Lüneburg. Dark red brown with a small head. Sweet alcoholic smell. Taste is very smooth for its abv. Sweet malt, shy hop. Still warming. Low bitterness. High drinkability for 11% abv. Great stuff.

BrewBrain (185) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2017 Aroma of caramel and honey and nuts and alcohol . slightly hazy amber pour with minimal head. Flavor is sweet caramel, honey, prune, alcoholic . Thick sticky body with low prickly carbonation. Sharp sweet and alcohol finish. The type of beer that should come in 7-oz bottles.

3.1
phfyysik (1389) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2017
Pours amber with light off-white head. Aroma is caramel, hay, some berries, alcohol, raisin, some fat, light toffee. Taste is creamy, thick, alcohol, sugar, some berries, warming, liqueur, fat. A lot of alcohol in aftertaste. Drinkable, but not the whole bottle.

2.3
GSAP (755) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2017
Olie-achtig in de mond, alcohol brandt in de huig en een licht verslavende sherry smaak, wat voller zelfs. Aroma van een goedkope 15% drank, en smaak kan dat niet geheel wegspoelen. Rustig drinken, maar lang genieten is het niet.

loscovar (646) - Trieste, ITALY, Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 19, 2017
Bottle from supermarket. Really strong duppelbock, i was surprised but i kind of like it

3.6
nybol (2311) - DENMARK - JUL 10, 2017
En stærk smag, meget bitter. God smag, men ikke en man skal have mere end en af.

3.7
davedrinkinbeer (19) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2017
A very strong doppelbock. I am amazed that this is not considered an eisbock, but still a good beer. Sweet beginning at the mouthful, then alcohol warmth comes across. Minimal carbonation, and is definitely a sipping beer.

3.6
ozzy70 (1250) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 10, 2017
11.2 oz. bottle. Pour was copper, off white head. Aroma of bread dough, raisin, plum jelly. Taste was moderate sweet, raisins, apple, clove, alcohol.

1.5
MMR (833) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2017
This wasn’t too good. Beer with a strong alcoholic taste just for the taste of alcohol...
