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.

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.

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!

Bottle from ross. Pours an opaque brown/black with a creamy luscious tan head. Aroma is intense, mostly of roasted barley, coffee, hints of chocolate, vanilla, etc. In the mouth it starts out a little sweet, ends with just the right amount of smokiness. In the middle is a complex combination of raisins, coffee, malts and lots of other stuff that I donít have the powers to put into words. The aftertaste lingers of roasting coffee and chocolate beans. Itís moderately carbonated with a moderately thick mouthfeel. Itís still nicely full and creamy, but not quite as dense as a Dark Lord or Speedway. Awesome!

GABF 2006. Had many samples of this trying to figure what the big deal was. Dark bodied and opaque. Near black. Nose is roasty and sweet with chocolate and light coffee notes. Taste is more roasty malts, some sweet chocolate, coffee and alcohol notes coming through. Body is near full. Chewy with dense carbonation. Rather smooth overall. Ends with more roasty malts, light alcohol warmth, chocolate and coffee. Good beer!

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 18, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 Bottle courtesy of ross. Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Smells of rich malt, chocolate, raisins, figs, hoppy. Tastes of cherries, dark chocolate, some nuttiness, one of the richest malt profiles Iíve ever tasted in a beer. Mouthfeel is tingly and thick. More cherries and complimentary dark chocolate on the finish. I wasnít expecting this at all. This definitely lived up to my expectations and then some. Thanks, ross!

From the bottle, pours thick and black like that wonderful black gold--crude oil. Thick brown foamy head that lasts quite a while. Not very powerful in the nose. Light aromae (proper plural of aroma) of frozen dark chocolate and a bit of toffee. Taste is initially dark chocolate with some coffee, which then fades to caramel, toffee, a bit of buttered popcorn, some raisins and brown sugar, and the alcohol makes its presence known as it warms. The aftertaste is of the same flavor, and it leaves a drying but not bitter sensation on the tongue. This beer is very well done.
