UPDATED: MAR 25, 2016 Riecht unangenehm, schmeckt nichtssagend, leicht alkoholisch. Dann lieber Wasser. Daumen danieder. Von den Nachbarn direkt von der Hancock Brewery in DK. Nachtrag 1: Gestern als Wegbier zur Schaubude geschlürft und ohne gucken und riechen was ein wenig besser. Einen Overall Bonuspunkt ☺

DerGantzel (261) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2015
Not much aroma, but a bit sweet malt aroma. Brown-reddish clear liquid. White short lasting head. Medium sweet, light bitter. Average carbonation. Not a lager with much character.

MGantzel (178) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2015
Denne black lager har et brunt rødligt udseende med et svagt hvidt skum. Øllen har en meget svag aroma af sødme. Desuden smager den af sød humle og har få noter af lakrids og karamel. Medium karbonering. En kedelig øl med meget lidt smag.

bartlebier (3195) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2015
33cl Ebeltoft local, ved telten. Diluted caramel & liquorice candy mixed into a stale filter coffee broth of spent grain, fennel, celery. Slick, watery, dead yeast profile. Mouthwash comes to mind, if it had a mild hop presence. Less than delightfully dated.

Pour light Brown almost like tea. Malty nose. Caramel, malt and a vague bitterness.

DraftDodger (846) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2015
Copenhagen 4/6 2015. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Lot of barrels giving the impression of old fashioned oak barelled beer production. Pours clear brown with light beige head. Head dissipates fairly fast. Aroma is not very strong. Sweet with some dark roasted malts and a little sourness. Medium carbonation. Taste is sweet - syrup and dark malts. Light bitterness in aftertaste. Nice enough dunkel - but nothing out of the ordinary.

Hancock Black Lager has beautifully rich and pleasant aroma of roasted malt. The taste is sweet caramel and roasted malt, which lowers the caramel sweetness. In flavor notes can also be found a little coffee, nuts and dried fruit. The hops are Czech Saaz type. Saaz has the mild and slightly spicy taste which makes it excellent for all types of lagers, which just like the malt must get a bigger context in taste impressions. It is a tasty dark stock sold at a price that is affordable. The large Danish breweries have here a major competitor when it comes to dark lagers. Hancock version is very rich and tasty. However, I do not think it beats the classic Old Carlsberg lager.

Milter (668) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2015 Noget skuffende Black Lager. Ordinær smag uden særlige smagsnoter. Kedelig farve og skum.
