Aroma is malty and very sweet. the flavor is also sweet and with a malty twist. Small head and amber colour.

bartlebier (2656) - 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.

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.

TorbenJensen (784) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2015
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 (362) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2015
Noget skuffende Black Lager. Ordinær smag uden særlige smagsnoter. Kedelig farve og skum.

Troll (29) - DENMARK - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle @ home. Aroma: Sour ’pilsner’. Apperance: Pours clear dark amber, some light brown medium lasting head. Taste: Few roasted notes, toffee, a bit sour bitternes in the finish. Overall: Drinkable but not very interesting.

djoeye (2520) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Tall tan head, brown-amber clear body, not much lacings. Aroma; dark fruity malts, red apple, berries, dusty hops. Taste; medium caramel malts, wet sweet bread, grains - not sure where hops went after aroma test. Almost flat carbo here. Sweet finish, caramel and light syrup, fragments of apple. Tmawy close to polotmawy, I would say, or just a flat amber vienna. [33cl brown bottle, 5%abv, BB07.04.15]

jesperhammer (3545) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2014
06-SEP-2014, draft @Øllets dag, Bryggen. Mahogany with low tan head. Not Black at all! A Little roast, caramel, touch of sweetness, pilsner-like and far from the Schwartzbier I was expecting. Boring.
