This beer is hard to find, but worth looking for. Gourmet Haus Stadt in Redwood City has a couple of cases available right now (10 April 2014). This beer is not for the Corona, Bud, Miller Lite crowd. Its strong and strong tasting.
The texture is almost syrupy and the taste has caramel notes and aroma. There is a fruity and malt flavor as well. At 11% alcohol, more than a couple would be overdoing it. TheBeerGod (6292) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2006 Another of my faves! This is an excellent beer. Strong alcohol notes throughout. Not very carbonated. Golden brown to brown red in color. Excellent as a digestif or dessert. Try it with a shot of Scotch in it as me and my friends do (then known as Luftwaffe Fuel!). Talk about strong!! HIGHLY recommended! It"s even better when aged!

Hold yer horses boyz, I done found me one excellent doppelbock! Sweet, spicy and full of alcohol (11%!). Much like drinking a fine rum or fine port. Silky smooth, crisp, warming and so flavorful. Don’t spoil this brew with food; have it as a dessert brew after a rich meaty meal and you won’t be disappointed. Time to stock up for the winter! Definitely a brew to cellar for a couple of years.

This is a delicious Doppelbock. I am drinking this bier and the Celebrator Doppelbock as well. The EKU 28 is sweeter and maltier in flavor whereas the Celebrator is darker and has slight smoky quality. Both are from bottles so that makes a huge difference, as I had the Celebrator on tap earlier this week at Grunauer Restaurant in KC, MO. On tap is definitely a bigger tasting bier. I like drinking both biers and taking a sip of EKU 28 followed by a sip of Ayinger Celebrator. Life is good! ordybill (1815) - 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.
