3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A clear, copper beer wtih a finger-thick off-white to beige head. Malty-sweet and biscuity nose with some alcohol, caramel, a hint of molasses and some hops. Sweet and malty flavor with a molasses-like, or hvidtøl-like malty sweetness. Fine bitterness too, but less than expected or hoped for. Full-bodied and warming, rather sticky. Sweet finish with some bitterness. I find the beer to be a bit too much, with less hoppyness than expected from the name. A quite decent beer though. (090401)

Endnu en dejlig øl fra Hancock. Og selvfølgelig en kraftig sag på 8,1 % Ville ønske at Hancock snart begav sig ud i en porter eller stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle, pours with a short lasting beige head on a beautyfull coffee colored beer with a red hue, aroma of coffee, liquorize and a little dark fruit. surprisingy no alcohol in the nose, excellent!! The flavor gives gentle impressions of again cafe, liquorize, and ripe dark fruits. the finish is fine balanced by earthy and spicy hop impressions, but to sweet for my liking. A really well made doppelbock from someone, who understands that this style needs time!

Some over ripe fruit in the aroma. Copper/ruby color.
Lots of sweetness in there, dark fruit, a little vinous. The hops add to the fruitinsss, but there is not enough dryness here to balance it. Alcohol edge.
