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).

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2016
Rating #2260 - 2015.12.16 - Beer #16 in the 2015 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Pours a Tarheel black with a weak bubbly tan foam. Aroma is heavy roast malt,lots of coffee, chocolate, and espresso. Taste is mild bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character, lots of black forest cake, espresso, cocoa flavours and smokiness on the palate in the finish. Unreal brew.

Sample at the esbls. In my tasting glass this was jet black with a tan head. Nose is licorice, dark ripe fruit, and rich caramel malts. Full in body with a rich creamy mouth feel. Flavor is really rich with the anise, plums, raisins, molasses, and chocolate all mingled tougher for a delightful taste. Finish is bittersweet. and the alcohol is well hidden. A great baltic porter and simply a great beer.

Pours opaque cola-brown with a 2-finger tan head. Aroma of coffee with a bit of char. Maybe some caramel too. Medium body, a bit oily. Finish is mild, with a touch of astringency. Coffee flavor with a bit of char to it. A sweet note underneath, maybe toffee.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Bee in Pooler, GA. The appearance is black with a small tan head. The aroma is coffee with some cocoa. A really good porter.

BBD 2016. Pours black. Normal head volume, poor lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of light roast, dark chocolate, raisins with plum notes, caramel and light molasses with a bit of caramel. Light full bodied with a smooth texture that has a bit of creaminess. Slightly below normal carbonation level and is a bit low for the body. Light effervescence in the middle and prickly in the finish. The flavor profile is quite outstanding. The 9% ABV is very well covered by the rich complex flavors. All the flavors of the nose appear, but mostly in blended fashion. Sweet molasses and caramel form the base with roast on the top. Bitterness is a hint in the middle and mostly roast based. The finish is a slow sweet fade with notes of chocolate, raisin and plum.

Wow, this beer shoots for and nearly achieves greatness. A phenomenally superior Baltic Porter, with an excellent coffee and sweet tobacco leaf aroma, nice ruby-brown-black appearance, but with a rather minimal head, looks very flat. The flavor profile is perfect, slightly charred roasted malt, predominantly still sweet and warm maltiness, as a porter ought to be. Some dark fruit notes and an alcohol sweetness, but no boozy tartness, very well done. Indeed very smooth and pleasant texture, with minimal carbonation. My only dissatisfaction that keeps me from going a full 4/5 stars with this beer is its lack of body, personally I would much prefer some additional foam and texture. Still delicious and I will definitely drink again.

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.

SlovakSniper (5130) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2016
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.

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!
