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.

Bottle from Ohiodad I got in November 2006 in a trade, I’m excited to see how the beer has aged. Pours an opaque dark brown color with a very minimal dark tan head. Aroma is raisin/bourbon dominated with a slight note of toasted malt in the background. Slight smokiness if the nose as well. Flavor is extremely sweet, lots of raisin- like a barleywine. Seems past it’s prime in the flavor. Very slick on the palate, another sign of age/infection (I think it’s age more than anything). I liked this beer the first time I had it, but it’s not very representative of a baltic porter at this point in the aging process. And as a side note, I stored the beer in my cellar (which is kept at 60F).

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Rich dark fruit and roasty coffee aroma. Great rich taste of dark fruits, leather, a little roasty. Clean fruity finish with no booze. Tasty.

Une robe brune sur laquelle flotte un anneau de mousse. Au nez, voilà une richesse fruitée liquoreuse dans une mélasse imbibée de réglisse et touchée par une fumée de cigare. Au goût, la mélasse est dominante, teintée par des malts bien tournés, accaparée par des saveurs de fudge aux noix et découpée par des fruits noirs qui ont bien vieillies. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modéré à bas et une texture crémeuse. La finale est très mélasse noire, mi-amère ou mi-sucrée, assez forte pour lui mais conçue pour elle. Bon liquide qui n’est pas beau mais qui fait le travail qu’il doit faire. Efficace.

maley1 (1036) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
Dark brown pour with a few beige bubbles for a head. Aroma of malts, caramel, lactose, chocolate and licorice. Taste of roasted malts, fudge, chocolate, lactose, slight fruits, hint of coffee, molasses and slight licorice. Full bodied, lower carbonation, velvety smooth creamy mouthfeel. Perfectly balanced and a nice lingering chocolate fudge on the finish. Absolutely delicious!

Stoned99 (1014) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2016 341ml bottle from trade with SlovakSniper. Aroma: chocolate, candied fruits, licorice, raisin. App: dark brush almost black, minimal to no head (brown), no lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, velvety fruity, moderate carbonation, medium sweet finish. Overall: good but not huge fan of licorice at least when its that much but once it?s warmer it led present. Body feels a bit too thin as well but the texture makes it up. Do much better around 18C.Still something I could drink on cold days after shovelling. Not exactly today’s weather though but still, this is highly drinkable. I guess I?ll update this rating a 3rd time soon.

Pours almost black with a thin off white head. Nose is malty. Taste is delightfully balanced. One of the best porters I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Long time want. Great aroma of intense roast, peanuts, chocolate syrup, tobacco, and cherries. Tastes very roasty, some smoke and chocolate, dry nutty finish with some lingering dark fruit. Medium body. Some intense stuff here and pretty complex. Would love some more of this.

I think that most of the reviews have the tone of someone more concerned with impressing beer snobs than giving an objective opinion about the beer. (I will post the same comment with every review) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by Tom - thanks! Oh man, first whiff and you know it’s an elite beer. Good god. Dark brown pour. Rich aroma of nut, mild licorice, cold coffee. Taste is also very rich - similar to aroma with some caramel and raisin as well. Slick palate with some heft. This is one of the best, if not the best, porters I’ve ever had. And one of the best made beers I’ve ever had. Damn, this is spot on.

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with thin beige head. Aroma is caramel, licorice, bourbon, maple syrup and dark fruits. Taste is moderately sweet with mild to moderate bitterness. Flavors of plums, raisins, caramel, chocolate, maple syrup, licorice. Definitely one of the best Baltic Porters I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
