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.

Pitch black pour with a beautiful dark tan cream head with some lacing. Aroma is rich and well blended mix of chocolate, roast and just a touch of alcohol. The flavor is also very well blended. The body is the best part of this beer. Incredibly smooth with just a touch of sharpness at the end. Very nice.

Bottle from Styles. Pours opaque black with a small, creamy, tan head. The aroma is cola, molases, a touch of anise and chocolate. The flavor is molases, cola, licorice, roast, ash, mild acidity and a touch of cherry. Medium/full body, with an incredible texture, very soft and velvety smooth and a slightly warm and bitter finish. Quite a pleasant suprise. Thanks Chris.

Bottle. Pours like syrup thick with a small but very brown head. Subtle on the aroma front, baking chocolate, lavender, hazelnut, nutmeg. Flavor is similar but much bolder; bitter dark chocolate, roses, copper, hazelnut. Gets almost a little sour in the back of your throat before the chocolate nutty aftertaste kicks in, which may or may not be indicative of the alcohol content. Actually, this beer would probably taste better with a bit less alcohol. The mouth feel is incredible here, like buttermilk, very thick, though it does stick to your throat a bit. Very interesting, but really, does every beer out of a micro in NC have to be high gravity? I feel like the flavor suffers for 3% more alcohol. This is good though.

12 oz bottle from Jimbowood. Pour is very dark and thick. Smell is roasted coffee, malt and chocolate. Seems almost like a stout. Upon first pour, it was very cold. I wasnít initially impressed. As it has warmed a bit, the flavors have become much more rich and satisfying. This is definitely a well-crafted beer. The mouthfeel is amazingly silky smooth. Overall, a very good porter.

Thanks Secret Santa! This near-black BP smells like espresso with sugar and tastes like rich choclately coffee with complex brandy-like finish. This was a big hit with my beer-savvy friends, too.

This is a very interesting, complex beer. While I donít think I could drink this every day, I think it broadened my horizons a bit. Iíve never had anything quite like it; a variety of very strong aromas and flavors that manage to stay in balance with each other. Definitely worth a try.

omhper (19985) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2006
Bottled, thanks Immy! Very black, minimal brown head. Aroma of coffee and plums. Medium sweet with concentrated flavour of toffee, coffee, citrus and tar. The mouthfeel is compact, and the flavours are really intense and concentrated. I find notes of chocoalte pudding and blackberries. salty finish. More refined than the traditional rather crude examples of the style. Well worth itís high rating!

Bottle shared by sliffy at CT4, thanks! Pours a dark brown with a short tan head. Aroma of smoke, dark fruits, dark chocolate, booze, and coffee. The flavor had a little bit of soy sauce along with dark chocolate, a bit of raspberry, roasted malt and coffee. Rich overall with anice blance between sweet and bitter...some boozey and vinous qualities about it that are nice...well carbonated but not overly so. Good stuff!
