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.

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!

black body with minimal head...nutty, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and vanilla bean aroma that finishes with a slight cola nose...superb baltic flavor profile (huge in caramel, nuts, vanilla, molasses, and marshmallow)...perfect slick, oily mouthfeel..a top-rate beer for sure!

Thanks to The_Epeeist for sending these for a tasting. I brought them along and popped them open at the close of the night. It was a good way to finish the tasting. Despite a few others opening things, my stomach could not handle any more. 25 beers in a night is quite a few, especially when they are of the caliber of everything we tasted. I would call this one a Top 100 but not quite Top 50. Perhaps it was the combination of everything else I tried but this was missing a little something. Still, kudos to the Duck Rabbit for an awesome beer.

Flavor / Palate - The body was deep black with an off white tannish head one finger high. It was so dark that almost no light escaped the glass. It was almost a black hole worthy of comparison to Expedition or Dark Lord. Aromas of smoke, cherries, malt, peaches and toffee formed an intruiging nose. Overall it was airy and vinous but still focused.

Flavor / Palate - Coffee and cajun blackened malt form a smoky mouthfeel. Roasted malt and dark chocolate create a nice followup which is then succeeded by smoke, cherry and salt free pretzels. The body was very complex and pleasing but hot quite all there. I couldn’t pin down what was missing but it just felt slightly off. It is on par with the Full Sail Imperial Porter though which is not a bad beer.

bottle-thanks to Ernest for this one-pours 90% black with a brown tinge around the rim of the glass. chocolate, anise, roast, toasted malt, lightly fussel notes, baking chocolate, light alcohol (the fussel) and some light smoke in there as well. WOW-nice flavors-char, sweet chocolate, light roast, milk chocolate with lots of complexity. Really hits the style very well-lots of sweetness, but lots of choclate with light roast to dry it out a little. nice complexity! Body is full with very subtle and gentle carbonation. Really a nice version of the style, but i dont know if its a top 50 contender. I think the full sail Imp porter is a little better.

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.
