    EKU 28 has a thin, beige head and a clear, amber appearance, with some lacing and tiny streaming bubbles. The aroma is rich: heavy, sweet, caramel malt, toffee, vegetable, sugar, and grain. Taste is alcohol forward, with a background of sugar, caramel candy, black bread, and syrup. There is also a little bit of bitterness, but not much. Mouthfeel is thick, sticky, and heavy, and EKU 28 finishes mostly dry and boozy.

    A huge malt bomb with tons of fizz to make it go down easy. Smells of caramel, butter, sugar and alcohol. Flavor is more of the same sticky sweetness, a slow sipper to be sure, like a good barley wine.

    Deep brownish-copper pour with absolutley no head, lacing or carbonation. Strongly sweet with intense vanilla and malts. A winter beer, no doubt. Alcohol is masked fairly well. Oddly sticky to the pallette.

    Pours clear dark copper, no head. Mouth is alcohol and sweet. Flavor is interesting - definitely a winter warmer. I think this might go well with the right cigar.

    THis beer will supposedly stand in for sherry or port......not based on my experiences with sherry or port. A clear copper coloured beer with a generous head. Sweet malt, hops, sugar, and alcohol are all in the aromatic mix. A little sweet in the end, with a mid bitterness, not something to drink every day.

    this isn't quite my prefered method to get a high abv, but it's ok on a cold wintry night. sweet and heavy, fruity, with some malts and barely noticed hopping. not something i'd go out of my way for.

    Pours a nice clear coppery-red with a fairly thick, pale yellow head that does not stick around. Aroma is strong and more fruity than malty, not at all like a beer with such a high alcohol content. Flavor has a fairly fierce but not overwhelming alcohol bite; taste is mainly sweet and fruity with an undertone of caramel, more like liquor than beer. Aftertaste is sweet without being cloying.

    Very malty aroma with a hint of alcohol. First taste mimics a single malt scotch whiskey. Color is a brilliant cupric hue beconing the imbiber to sample its ware. A good sipper to enjoy after a romantic interlude.

    Brown 11.2 oz bottle into a large long stemmed sniffer. Appears a bit viscous in the pour. Smells of volatile vanilla extract and it reminds me of some helles beers, with their slender candy background olfactory. Color is a combination of clear red, orange and yellow. No perceivable carbonation. First taste is strong alky, like burning, man. Penetrating alky effect almost like hard liquor was added to the brew. Afraid to take another hit. Immense seat kicking back of throat punch. Rather massive in its own way. Way too much for this session brew lover. Exactly what I thought I’d get. Saw it on the shelf and passed it by for the last two years. Probably should have left it there. Causes the hair on the back of my neck to stand up and at times nearly triggers the gag reflex. No doubt this is one of the strongest tasting beers I’ve had. Date code 1872, heheh. Rude crude and at times, just plain unenjoyable for a beer. Hot as brandy without the fruity sweetness.
