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.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Black. Short, frothy, light brown cap. Nose of graham crackers, lactose, dry wood, burnt malt, pbj sandwich, subtle coffee, and bittersweet chocolate. Similar flavor without the pbj and the addition of huge earthy, bitter hops that also carry some resinous venom. Some chocolate chip cookie in there, also. Full body, viscous with enough carbonation to balance. Excellent. Duck Rabbit = dark beer specialist.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 12, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Trade from Ross. Thanks man. Pours a dark brown color with brown head. Aroma of sweet malt, chocolate, roasted coffee, raisins, black licorice and dark fruit. It also has a peculiar nuttiness to it. Taste is chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruit, black licorice and some berry flavors. Mouthfeel is peculiar with an almost acrid taste, however it?s well played out with regard to the roasted flavors and fruit notes.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2007
Bottle thanks Martin Engelsmann. Black colour with a big brown head. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and coffee, and the taste is also a bit roasted with dark fruits, chocolate and coffee. Medium to full body with a dry finish. Great beer.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2010 Bottle from Caponeís. Pours near black with a large, creamy head. Spare lacing. Aroma is sweet, with dark roasted malts, milky chocolate, molasses, attic dust and salt. Full body, creamy mocha texture. Taste is mostly sweet with touch of dusty bitterness.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2007
Thick black with a dark tan head. Aromas of powdered cocoa, roasted malt, some subtle hops. Mouthfeel is excellent - thick, silky, and not overly carbonated. A bitter roastiness begins the taste with chocolate coming in. Finish is roasty but smooth. Alcohol well-hidden. Not a Baltic like Zyweic or Koff, more akin to the Gonzo IP, but itís still a fantastic beer.

SpringsLicker (3386) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Thanks to Ross for sending these my way. Opaque black pour that produces a huge, medium tan head. Dark choclate and coffee dominate the aroma. Lots of roast malt. Well balanced flavor that is divided between the sweet malts and the bitterness from the roasted malts. Full bodied and satisfying.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - JAN 7, 2007
Black in colour with a big old brown head on top of it. The head disappeared after about 10 minutes. Sure smells like a baltic porter, chocolate and fruit with some vanilla and roast. Nice thick mouthfeel with good soft carbonation. The flavour is of dried fruits and pure dark chocolate lending itself a bit of a sweetness and some roasted flavour in the end.

Thanks to emacgee. Rich deep malt dark chocolate,some roastedness and a touch or fruit in this very pleasing aroma, smooth as silk, cocoa liquer malt with a touch of anise vanilla and carmel and roastedness, a tad bitter and alcoholy in finish,not a baltic by any means but an extremely pleasant surprise

Duane shared a bottle of this with me. Dark pour. Smells like some roasted barley, caramel and dried fruit. Taste is also very sweet and has a velvety mouthfeel. Lots of roasted character, more than most porters Iíve had. Very sweet beer, I didnít really pick up any hop flavor in the finish, but it was just so smooth and easy drinking that it really didnít matter.
