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.

Small brown head, good retention with a thin stringy lace. A black brew with brown edging. Nose of roast, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and light soy notes. Body is medium, nicely oily and coating, a touch chalky. Chocolate and roast flavors up front followed by notes of licorice and light cocoa and maybe some vinous notes as well. Finish is lightly sweet and chocolatey. Many thanks to Ross for the 4 bottles he shipped me in our last trade. Yes Ross, i,ll be spreading some of the love! Thanks again!

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2008 Thanks to kramer17801, CaptainCougar and DarkElf (and possibly others) for sharing this bottle with me. Dark, murky brown pour with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with chocolate notes and obvious alcohol. Roasted malt flavor with more chocolate notes and some slight spiciness. The alcohol is in no way hidden but seems to work well within the flavors of the beer. Believe the hype; this is one of the best porters I’ve tried. 4.6 Re-Rate. I finally get to sit down with a bottle of my own! Pitch black pour with a cinnamon colored head. Bready, malt nose with anise, fruits and coffee notes. Sourish cherry flavor with tons of dark malts, chocolate, anise, some coffee and slight tobacco flavors. Slightly hot finish. Lingers with a dry bitterness. This would rank as simply one of the best beers I’ve ever tried.

Thanks to Odeed for sending this one my way. The aroma is of chocolate with a hint of alcohol. Appearance is black with a thick tan head. It has a great full and creamy palate. Wonderfull flavor--tons of fantastic chocolate tastes. Slightly bitter in the end with a tinge of alcohol. Fantastic brew!

Bottle from Santa
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.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - DEC 3, 2006
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 wasn’t 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.
