Cleaning burned-on gunk from enamelware?

I have a favorite enamelware coffee mug that has burned on coffee/sugar/water on the inside bottom. I tried soaking all night in Dawn soap, vinegar, and vinegar/baking soda. Nothing budged it. When I try to drink coffee out of it now, a white film appears on the surface and it tastes 'off'. Can the cup be saved?

I would try some of the same solutions you have but add heat - boiling or near boiling water.

Try dishwasher detergent (powder or liquid) and hot water. Let it sit overnight
