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.

Pour was slightly aggressive produced a HUGE darkish brown head, like 3 + fingers. Big roasted chocolate and coffee nose, This baby smells thick. The complex aromas take a few minutes to decipher, Letís see. I got coffee, smoke, vanilla, some earth yeast(?) and chocolate, whiffs of both dark bitter sweet and milk chocolate. Now for the taste. Huge roasted malt with a strong background of anise/licorice. Mouth feel was thick and full. I am also getting some dark fruit and maybe cherries. I donít know, this has a hole in it somewhere. The ABV is present at the first taste, right on thru. This feels like A whole six pack smashed in one glass, A sipper this is.

BIG BIG thanks to Ty5592 for this. Pours black with a small tan head. Beautiful. Aromas of fermented malts and grains (silage), dark ripened fruits, and light smoke. I got a pretty big toffee and molasses flavor along with light roast and smoke also. Mouthfeel is big, rich and creamy. Outstanding !!!!

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2008 12oz bottle...this was one very satisfying brew! poured a deep black with an impressive light brown head with some nice lacing going on....aroma was of roasted malts and dark fruits...the taste was much of the same while maintaining a nice level of sweetness. mouthfeel was excellent. not too much could detract away from the quality i got out of this one. Rerate based on 2007 bottle which had a little more lactose and sourness than i would have liked.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2007 Pours pitch black, with a thick two finger tan head that fades extremely slowly to a thick cap. The lacing completely covers the inside of my glass. Very impressive. Smell; lots of dark fruity aromas with plums and cherries. THe roasted aromas are powerful with coffee, dark roasted malts and a bit of sweetness comes out with cocoa and molasses. Taste; the fruity flavors are first to hit just as the were in the aroma, with plums, cherries and Iím also getting some vanilla. Dark roasted coffee mixes very nicely with caramel and cocoa. The finish is very long on this, and provides a bit of a sourness. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a very creamy texture, and the drinkability is really good, but not quite outstanding due to the higher abv, and the flavors are so intense I would have a hard time drinking a second one.

What strikes me first about the aroma is its strong, full-nosed dose of roastiness and vanilla, with some oatmeal. It is also very heavy - even more so than I expected for a Baltic Porter. There is too much sweetness in the flavor, almost chemically, like aspartame, and this really detracts from the tastiness of the beer for me. Not as much cocoa as I would have liked, and instead this is replaced by prunes. The finish is syrupy and heavy.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Bottle from a trade with Ughsmash (thanks, Jason!) - nice black pour, with a brown head that sinks quickly to a small ring of lace - semi-sweet, lightly bitter aroma of bakerís chocolate, light tartness, cocoa, vanilla, a hint of rolled oats - creamy mouthfeel, with a medium body - quite bitter and tart up front, with notes of bitter espresso and cherry and raisins - this is followed by a mild, milky sweetness, adding a cream quality to the already apparent coffee notes - mild floral hints and a slight vinous character - quite well-balanced and tasty, but a 4.21 overall? - itís good, but not that good.

Rating #200! Bottle - thanks to DrBayern! Pours a dark black color with a nice frothy brown head on top. The head however dissipates quickly leaving it into a small ring. Aroma is full of intense malts. Many different aromas are coming out of this beer. Chocolate, vanilla, coffee, roasted malt, dark fruits, and hints of hops. Flavor is very complex with a number of different dark fruits touching the palate first. Followed up by intense roasted malts, smoke, caramel, chocolate, coffee, and hops. Finishes with a nice dry roasted malt taste. Quite a smooth beer with no hints of alcohol seeping in at all. I think I am in love with Duck-Rabbit! Thank you very much DrBayern for sharing this!

12 oz bottle. WOW! Pours a dark black with a full one+ finger mahogany head. The aroma is VERY complex! You can smell roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel and some burnt wood. The taste of a burnt smokey roasted chocolate coffee. WOW! A really good beer.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2007
The aroma was roast and a bit of coffee with a notable presence of chocolate. Some higher alcohol was notable in the nose and a slightly vinous character. The black beer had a translucent ruby appearance when held to light and a brown head which retreated slowly to lace the glass. The flavor was roasty, toasty and slightly vinous with a fruity aspect and chocolate coupled with coffee. The roast and coffee also came with a caramel backbone and enough bittering to keep the malt presence in check. With a medium full body and a moderate carbonation level the beer exhibited a creamy mouthfeel. A good Baltic Porter, better when fresh and without the vinous characteristics that have come forth due to age. 12 ounce bottle.
