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.

Bottles from kenb and Ross. Thanks to the both of you. Pitch black, oily, with a huge beige head. Great lacing. Aroma has a big smoke kick up front, then chocolate, roasted grain and faint alcohol. Tons of residuel sweetness, mollasses up front in flavor. Again lots of chocolate, smoke, and some faint bitter coffee in the finish. Great oily-smooth mouthfeel. Very nice!

Bottle pours a deep black with a large foamy brown head. Heavy blocy lacing. Aroma is some bitter coffee, dark roasted, charcoal notes. Flavor is similar, a nice balance of dark roats and sweet dark pitted fruits and bitter chocolate. Nice medley. Finish is the smokey bitterness of old campfires. Thanks to OhioDad for this one too

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle: Pours a dark opaque black, head is dark tanish brown. The nose is plummy and strong with roast, alcohol and some soy like kampyo and msg. Sharp astringency and a nice floral roast and hop bouquet. The flavor is a lot more balanced with a chewy full body, sweet malts and roast, a bit harsh in the finish, but creamy and balanced. Like the beer breakfast, an overabundance of the dark roasted malts doesnít make the beer. Balanced, check. Flavorful, check. Drinkable? Questionable. Thanks to Indiana_Red for letting me try this.

Bottle:Jet black with a tan head. Tangy citrusy charcoal and alcohol aroma. The feel is smooth and creamy. I noticed tangy coffee, slimy celery, cardboard, and carob. I love the feel on this one - pretty well balanced. Another thing I like about this is that it isnít too sweet or bitter - it leaves a great balanced aftertaste in your mouth. Thanks Indiana_Red!

(MANY THANKS TO BIGSILKY FOR HOOKINí THIS UP!)pours a super black body with a thick and creamy dark brown head.as far as looks,it doesnt get much better than this.aroma is marshmellows,alcohol,smoke,roasted malt,and chocolate.flavor is a mix of alcohol,roasted malts,some sourness,and a strange "funky" aftertaste.mouthfeel was on the medium side and the palate was as well.honestly its a little over-rated to me.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2010 Bottle, rating #700. Man, have I been patiently waiting for this.Two things Iíve been thinking: 1.)Their imperial stout is awesome, 2.) Their regular porter is awesome. So. . . Pours black and thick, some ruby hues are noted in the light. Lacing is dense and oily on the side of the goblet and no head remains after about 3 or 4 minutes. The aroma is heavily roasted with earthy coffee notes, caramel, pipe smoke, baking chocolate. Smells rather American, it doesnít quite have the aroma found on a typical, textbook Baltic. Ah, the flavor. This is where the beer truly excels. It is somewhat Americanized, but the finish has enough mildly sour, pleasingly bitter ashiness to make me realize this is no imperial stout. The initial palate coating delivers flavors of espresso, dark chocolate, hickory, wood-notes. Things become a bit more tart in the finish, notes of tobacco and plums are noticed along with a dash of soy sauce and mildly acidic coffee. Hints of toffee swim around. The mouthfeel is fairly heavy with low carbonation, really slick. This is damn good stuff.

Six pack from Hop City. I hear they may be discontinuing this beer so I figured I better try it again while I can. Iíve thought that even though this is an amazing beer it is a bit overrated. Now we shall see once again. The pour is very attractive with its very dark, near black, red color. The head builds up but quickly disappears to a small ring. The aroma is heftily roasty with some lactose qualities, faint fruity tones, coffee and a distinct nutty hint. The palate is medium heavy. What a weird tasting beer. Iíve always thought Duck Rabbit makes beers that are unique in the way of yeast. The initial flavor is soy sauce, coffee, meat, and typical porter flavors but a second later and Iím thinking plums, coconut, buttermilk, and sugar cookies. It is a most unique big black beer and I enjoy it well. That said, I probably dig their imperial stout more.

GABF 2006. I had several samples. Lactose, roast, and smoke in the aroma. Cappuccino, and roasty flavors with chocolate notes. Moderately full body. This is what a Baltic Porter should taste like.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Poured opaque black with a medium sized brown head. Very sweet highly roasted aroma with some tart coffee notes and chocolate covered raisins. The flavor is very sweet with notes of milk choclate. Some tart and roasty notes. Medium bodied and and almost creamy but the carbonation breaks it up a little.

Thanks to Suttree for his generosity in sharing this rare and delicious beer. Simple appearance; black and not much of a head. Served just below room temperature. It is exceptionally smooth. Aroma has some yeast, chocolate and lots of red wine as well. Flavor is a little vinous, some coffee, light chocolate, and just a little sourness that so many Baltic porters have. Light and pleasant alcohol burn, but the alcohol is not present in the aroma or flavor.
