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 snifter glass, dark black with dark tan lacing (no real head). Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, smoke, kind of a red wine note and earthy hops. Taste adds notes of dark chocolate, dark coffee, raisins, berries, caramel, molasses and a faint vinegary-sour note. Medium heavy body, low carbonation, rich, soft, creamy with ashy roast finish. This is RBís #1 Baltic porter for a reason, enjoying this very good sipper.

Bottle, aroma is rich roasted malt and pine resin. Taste is nice roast and a bitter dry finish, medium bodied, sessionable

Dark stout black almost reminiscent of a stout but more lagerish (that sounds off but it is a porter). Not as much coffee/chocolate tones, still pesent. Dryer than you would expect. Hoppy but not overwhelming. Sour but not harsh. Almost black cherry-like in its sourness - especially in the aftertaste. Almost no head from the bottle which I think is good. The flavor offsets the alcohol very well.

Shared a bottle on the Zillieís deck- kudos to them for amazing selection for a tiny town. Pours a dark brown and almost completely flat- lack of any head is a bit off putting. Nose is dark chocolate and earthy notes. Taste is super mellow- perfect for sipping on a chilly winter night. Definite sour notes in there- almost like a good sourdough. Cherry sweetness and almost no bitterness- but still well balanced. Solid, solid beer. The fact that it is bottom fermented adds to interest factor- canít judge this book by itís cover. Taste definitely changes as beer warms to room temp- like getting two beers in one bottle. Alcohol is almost too much- little bit reminiscent of a nice port.

JHeath99 (925) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours dark opaque black with a thin layer of toffee colored head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Taste of coffee, chocolate, and roasty goodness.

scotchzombie (326) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Pours fizzy into a very dark brown with a tan head that resolves quickly to a tiny rim - leaving a glossy oil slick. Aroma is earthy malts and nuts - slightly sour. Just a hint of chocolate. Taste has real depth. Roasted malts give way to chocolate with coffee and a pervasive booze-backed sourness that lingers through the finish and beyond. The effect truly approximates the flavor of sour cherries. As this beer warms these flavors really open up. This makes for a distinctive beer with some real craft. Very enjoyable! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells of unsweetened dark chocolate. Pours a nightly black with little to no head. So smooth! You get the roasted/smoked taste with a silky smooth finish. This brew lives up to all of its expectations and more!

355 ML bottle Black with a tad of ruby at the top. Just a collar of light brown head. Some spotty lacing. Great nose. Chocolate brownie, caramel dark fruits, licorice, somewhat port like, and lots of roasted malts. Lots of roast, bitter chocolate, earthy oak notes, coffee, slightly sour, and dark fruits. Nice stuff Medium bodied, still chewy though, light carbonation. Great example of the style

No notches for dating. A: pours a black ale with a single finger of fine, mocha head which dissipates to a thin and broken film. Spotty lacing. S: Oh yes, this I like. malt, molasses, caramel, anise, licorice, brown sugar, chewy nose. Thick and delicious. Chocolate covered cherries. T: Roasted malts, dark fruits, raisin. Graham. cocoa. sweet malts. did I mention the dark, sweet, complex and difficult to articulate malts? Long flavor finish for minutes on end. This is great, nitro would be insane. Chocolate covered bing cherry. M: Medium body with high carb for the style. Dry finish. O: Fantastic brew. Likely among my favorite baltic porters. Wish the carb was just a hare lower.
