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.

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 (198) - 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.

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.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
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!

2015 beer advent. Pours very close to black. Low, but not too low carbonation. Quite mild roasty flavours, you wouldn't guess this is a 9% alc beer. I think it is lacking a full mouthfeel texture. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CBAC Day 16. Not a big porter fan at all. Nice pour, no head or lacing though. Sadly did not enjoy the taste and poured out.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a very dark brown with a small brown head. Aroma is roasty. Taste is roasty. Good beer.

UXO (1486) - CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
Appearance: opaque deep brown /black with only the faintest hints of lighter brown around the margins, short, short-lived beige head diminishing rapidly to a thin ring, no lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dark chocolate, toffee, dark roasty grains, boozy cherries, hint of smoke and leather. (9/10) Taste: moderate-strong sweet, moderate bitter. (9/10) Palate: full oily body, soft carbonation, medium duration slightly boozy finish. (4/5) I usually find baltic porters a bit too sweet for my preference, but this one has the body and presence to pull it off. Alcohol doesn’t significantly affect the flavour, but is definitely present in the finish and a pleasant warming. Definite slow sipper for savouring. (17/20)

355ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with some alcohol. Taste is a roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness followed by a chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate.
