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.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle. (trade w/the_epeeist) Pours black, with a brown head. Chocolate, licorice, some coffee, burnt and roasted malt, in short terms, all the good stuff, in the aroma. The flavor follows up the good start, with a little salty note added, like the saltyness in salty licorice, and the coffee is a bit more evident. The fullbodied beer has a long finish with sweetness, some saltyness and licorice. Really, really nice. (070809)

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2007
Dark brown with a thin layer of cosmos-shaped head. Rich aroma - thick malts, accents of smoked plums, brown sugar and Turkish coffee, at time seeming a little bit burnt, at times coming through with very fresh malts. The body is thick, slightly oily. The main thing on the palate is Indonesian soy sauce - clean and well-structured, though. There isn’t a ton of nuance here - some sugar and the slightest bright apricot notes are about it. Finishes with a bit of roast.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 Bottle. [thank you, BierKönig - I know I still have to give you a ’95 Chimay Bleu for it :o)
[Vintage 2006]
Poured in my tulip glass. As it pours, it looks deep brown, but as it settles like oil in my glass, it becomes inpenetrably pitch-black. A medium creamy head sits firmly on top with a cappucino hold to it. Great laces as I swirl the beer gently in my glass, anticipating the first whiff, and after that, the first sip! Aroma is oaky, heavily roasted with a great touch of dark chocolate mixing well. The alcohol is evident, but only enhances the deep, dark and powerful aromas. There is some degree of tobacco and port as well. Mouthfeel is light, but still excessively creamy, with a sluggish, mild carbonation - only prickling lightly on my tongue. Wow, what a dense, creamy and mildly stunning degree of chocolate there’s in this beer! Coffee, tobacco, warming viniousness. Extremely well-balanced between the bitter, roasted, sweet and vinious tones. Really, really wonderful. And thank you, Jeppe!

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Bottle thanks to craftbeerdesign. Pours black with a decent foamy dark tan head. Aroma is dark and suggestive of cola or, perhaps, Dr. P. Medium plus body with mild carbonation. Flavor is very dark roasted malt with very dark fruit. Sweetish it is. Subtle dark and complex aspects. Finishes towards concentrated dried plum.Very clean and extremely sippable.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 8, 2011
A: The pour is almost black with a modestly sized tan/off-white head. S: This is going to sound strange, but this beer smells strongly of powdered cheddar cheese (like on Cheese Chex Mix). There’s also licorice, roasted malt, roast, and ash. Definitely a dark fruit aroma, too, like prunes. T: Lots and lots of licorice and prune juice. It’s overly sweet and sugary at points. I pick up some metal, and there are also fruit skins and quite a bit of roast and ash, which at least help to mitigate the sweetness. M: The body is medium with a low to medium level of carbonation. D: Not an enjoyable drinking experience here. Some really weird and off flavors.
