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.

Thanks to brigadier for sharing this one. Aroma is loaded with roasted coffee, vanilla and a touch of minerals. Dark, dark brown in color with a thin brown head. Flavor is more smoky than I expected. Also notes of chocolate and coffee and herbs but the smoke is more than I expected. Palate is fairly thick and creamy for a porter. Pretty good, but I’m not understanding why this is top 50.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2006 Sampled at the Falls Tasting: Clear black brown with a firm tan head collapsing slowly to lace. Roasted coffee aroma with a flavor to match, lingering roasty finish.

Bottle thanks to Ernest, damn crazy mutations between animals with their hats. Poured into a small goblet La Trappe goblet glass. Let it warm for about 20 minutes after the fridge. Pours black with a small brown head that quickly dissipates into an almost nothing lacing. Aroma is very present, light chocolate, good smokiness (thats what really wins me over), slight roastiness. There is a slighty fishiness that I usually see in wheat coming through that is a turn off to me. The description is right on with the velvety aspect on the mouthfeel. Nice low carbonation with a thick mouthfeel, not syrupy but velvety. Nice roast, chocolate, smokey taste. Leaves a heavy roast aftertaste.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Bottle thanks to Suttree. Deep opaque brown body with reddish highlights. Rich, complex aroma of burnt caramels, roasted malt, sour woody notes, licorice, and soy. Oily, smooth body revealing layers of chocolate, toffee, toasted marshmallow, soy, and even prune. Salty, leathery palate. Absolutely perfect finish on the back of the tongue, where burnt residual sugars and leathery notes linger long after the sip, just out of reach of the full array of tastebuds. This could be improved, still, by going easier on the carbonation...damn, Duck-Rabbit beers are carbonated. An excellent beer all around.

Kinz (3410) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Picked this up without realizing it was a Top 50 beer. Saved it for the 4th Richmond Gathering. Actually lived up to the hype to my surprise. Deep black brown, slight head. Fruity plum liquor aroma, deep chocolate, very fruity, with coffee too. Great nose, actually preferred sniffing this one. Flavor matches the nose, but not as rich. Still, a really special beer.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Pours pitch black with a wonderful head. Aroma is vineous, dry, bready, a bit of lactic sourness. Flavor is a crazy mesh of flavors, sweet up front, dry in the finish... powdery dryness and wet sweetness... maybe some fruits, brown sugar... lots of stuff I can’t really pin down. This beer fits the bill of Baltic Porter much more than others which just come off as stouts... it has some of that weird funkiness and strange flavors usually found in its european bretheren.

bgburdman9 (859) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - DEC 11, 2006
From ty, thanks! Pours pitch black with a pretty good size brown head. Aroma was very rich and chocolatey with a very light alcohol in the distance. On first taste this was very thick and creamy. Taste was sweet, chocolate, some caramel. Definitely one of my favorite porters but it had a slight sourness that i tasted. Excellent overall.

Bottle. Pitch black with a medium creamy mocha head. Coffee and toffee in the aroma with some caramel and cocoa. Flavour is really inky and tarry in the palate. Chewy hops, caramel, and chocolate is there for sure. Prunes and dark fruit are also in full force. Chewy and overall pretty damn awesome.

Roasty caramel aroma... opaque brown body and tan head. Sweet, creamy malt and caramel flavour.
