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.

Pours a dark brown color with a small head. Wonderful aromas of chocolate malts,coffee and dark fruits with hints of vanilla hit you right away. Wonderful silky flavors of chocolate and coffee and some rasins hit you mouth followed by some alcohol flavor. Did I mention that this stuff is unbelieveably smooth as silk?Wonderful stuff!

Out of bottle, tulip glass, nice color and head. Very roasty, multitude of flavors. Long finish. Excellent beer from the dark beer specialists.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2007 Bottled. Poured a very deep brown with a 1" cap of well-retained caramel head. Heavy dark and milk chocolates in the aroma department with dry, airy toffee and floral notes. Rather heavy flavor, again with the deeply-roasted chocolate blend.. grainy caramel, more chocolate, and a hit of alcohol at the finish. Little bit grainy on the palate and it could have been a tad heavier. Very good brew that I could use more of.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 Smooth ebony liquid topped with a huge foamy brown head that looks a bit like what you would get from a soda fountain. Head disapates quite quickly and no lacing to speak of. Wonderfully complex aroma. Strong toffee caramel slight floral/pine maybe even a little citrus hint. Creamy milky mouth feel with soft carbonation. Slight sweet taste followed by a startling bitter aftertaste. A thoroughly enjoyable and well crafted beer. Thanks to the folks at Peabody’s here in Boone for recomending this one.

Much thanks to Bert for this bottle, what a guy! Poured a dark brown near black color, slight mahoganey colors coming through around the edges. The head was minimal, but this thing wasn’t flat. The lacing wasn’t impressive. But, heck, forget all that appearance stuff, this thing smelled delicious, nice dark fruits, very light coffee, and a smokey finish. The flavor was splendid, all of that aroma, a gentle sweetness to make this a great finish for the night, figgy, licorice, some chocolate also making an appearance. Only slight knock was the degree of sweetness, a tad too much to take away from any lager crispness. Mouthfeel was smooth, medium carbonation, thick.

Dark brown with a lasting tan creamy ring. Aroma has vanilla, fruit, roasted honey, tarred chalk. Full-on sourish lacticy bitter chocolate. Sweet fruit balance out the bitter chocolate. Fresh cut grass in there too. Velvety bitter chocolate, belgian-esque dark fruit and espresso licorice. Really good and full flavor. Coating sticky mouthfeel; 9% but hard to tell. Great drink.

Huge thanks to Beerdrenched for sharing this highly rating beer. Pours oily black with a nice dark orange head. The aroma has lots of smooth dark toasted malts, vanilla and milk chocolate - comes off as very creamy and has hints of an alcohol presence. Medium / full body with a lush velvety feel that is also a bit slick and has a light amount of soft carbonation. Flavors start with heavy dark toasted malt and a good amount of hazelnut and cream. There is a sweetness to it that is very nice and clean. The finish adds a good amount of char. Further down the glass the finish gets lots of creamy vanilla. A great beer that hides the 9% incredibly well.

Black body with a mocha head. Aroma is alcohol, espresso, chocolate, cream, caramel. Taste is dark chocolate, smoke, a bit of toffee. Pretty good.

My 800th rating, Bottle from Ross! Nose of chocolate, vanilla, and cream; opaque black with a medium thick, long-lasting, glass-lacing, reddish-tan head; flavor of coffee, chocolate, and smoke.

Opaque at first sight, but translucent cherry-mahogany when put to light. Sweet, dark aromatic fulfillment. Nestle bakers chocolate meets some lactic persuasions and joins forces with locked espresso grinds clinging to caphalon. Sweet cream and souring French silk pie pipe in with their scents as well. Sugary, chocolaty milk cream comes in, pooling thickly like 2 percent milk. Chewy stream of tightly charred chocolate bricks enchants the special territory assigned to it. Hints of smoked coffee gaskets come about, and then melting Hershey’s bittered chocolate baking squares blanket the base. Cocoa and ginger snaps get smothered by flame-christened campfire blankets, with cocoa nips clinging to the fleece rather than rustic burr thorns. Hyper French chocolate brownies steal the show in the finish. Many thanks, Brigadier!
