COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbit Baltic Porter is deep, rich and velvety soft. A full blooded roasty character is balanced by complex alcohol notes. Strong (9% alcohol by volume) yet unfailingly subtle, this special brew warrants sipping and savoring.

Bottle into stout glass. Black w tan head. Aroma just smells like chocolate velvet. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Chocolate notes. Some vanilla. Like drinking black silk. Great porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar
Black color, small head. Some liquorice and dark malts in the aroma. Good body strength; chocolate flavor, a bit too much medicine (phenol?), moderately sweet, with some leather, and some alcohol warmth; a bit of roasted nuts too.
Quite good, a bit weird.

Ferris (11061) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle - Dark fruits, dark chocolate and a nice sweetness. Deep jet brown with a decent brown head. Lots of dar roast richness, balanced dark fruit and none of the bitterness. Nice.

mcberko (13023) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of roasted malt, some light cocoa and earthy notes. Flavour brings out a very earthy roasted malt that dominates the whole palate. Secondary notes exist in terms of light cocoa and coffee, but this is mostly earthy roasted malt. Complex and rich, with low residual sweetness. An extremely high quality baltic porter - one of the best.

RhetoricalAns (804) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
Almost black pour, thin dark brown, rocky head. Big porter aroma, deep bitter roast, dark chocolate, espresso. Taste is well balanced starting with some sweeter malt and ending in a roast bitterness with some leather. Alcohol content is well hidden. Body was a tad thinner than desired, low carbonation.

Dark pour into glass. I don’t see much head or lace. Burnt malt, tree, coffee, subtle citrus, toffee. Flavors blend nicely, taper off into a bitter coffee sticky malt/hop salad. Excellent.

RCx240 (197) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 19, 2015
Deep, dark brown, almost opaque. Virtually no head. Aroma of roasted malts, blackened toast, coffee, smoke. Taste is bitter, earthy, faint smokiness. Surprisingly light bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Finishes bitter, doesn’t linger. Impressive.

ryanhunter_4 (200) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
355 ml bottle poured at home. Day 17 of the craft beer advent calendar. This is about as far removed from yesterday’s beer as you can get. Pours black with no head and almost no carbonation. I had a hard time placing the aroma; I thought it was malt but I’m not quite sure. Taste is quite complex. Has a roasty, malty flavor that has a nice bitter finish and a touch of alcohol. As hard as I found it to place the flavors/aromas, it works. This is a really good beer.

355ml brown bottle. Craft Beer Advent Calendar ’15. Dark brown with a fast disappearing layer of beige foam. Nose has caramel, molasses. Taste - caramel, tobacco, dark fruit, chocolate. Bitter finish. Medium body, light carbonation. Quite rich and very nice.

CBAC day 16! Pours an inky black with little head and nice long legs up the glass. World class Baltic porter that almost makes this calendar worth the price of admission! Lots of dark dried fruits, raisins, plums and rich caramel with some light balanced booze throughout! Would have been happy with a calendar full of these!
