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.

Thanks goes out to Immy for this outstanding brew. Poured from a 12oz bottle black with a small brown head that faded into a ring of lacing. Aroma was roasted malts, raisins, a bit of smokiness and a bitter chocolate. Flavor was roasted malt and the chocolate was a semi-sweet chocolate. The body was smooth and creamy. It finished dry on the tounge.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 Upped on re-taste to a 5.0; head/appearance produced this time lived up to the rest.. My favorite example of my favorite style, and it just doesnít get any tastier than this. Why arenít more beers out there made as tasty as this? Iíd pay good money for it. So . . . why?

Rating #400! Courtesy the man, kenb, 10/7/07. Aged 1 year. Iím rating conservatively because I donít want to be a fanboy right off the bat. But itís right up there with the best, the few other 5ís Iíve ever had. Aroma is AWESOME, and a good indicator of whatís to come. Heavy on the chocolate-covered cherry-or-raisin, in both aroma and palate. Best aroma ever, period. Goes down smoother íní you know what. The only thing I didnít give a top component grade for was appearance, I believe because it didnít generate large and foamy head. We did some nitroíing and fixed that issue, but Iím just going on its "official" presentation. I did a 19/20 on overall, but Iím gonna bump that up to a 20 and put this in sole possession of the 4.9 placement in my ratings list. Thanks to the MAN, kenb, Iíll get subsequent tastings and see how this fares on the repeat. The bottle went down much too quickly to savor in full, this is so damn drinkable.

12 oz bottle from JCB. Thanks Jason! Deep deep brown - not quite black - with a thick hot chocolate colored head that reduces to a dense film. Roasty malt and dark chocolate nose, earthy, an odd fruity note. Flavor is semisweet chocolate, a little roasty coffee, and sweet malt that penetrates the deep parts of the mouth. While damn tasty, the star here is the body - not quite creamy, but the consistancy of half-n-half; dense, but not too thick. Smooth as wet ice on ice. Mildly dry chalkiness in the center of the tongue in the finish, while the sweet malt flavors tickle the sides of your tongue. Simply awesome. It simply does not get all that better than this.

My favorite porter and maybe my favorite beer. Midnight black, great taste. Itís so great that I wonít have another porter for at least a month after my stockpile of this runs out.

this beer was fantastic with hints of vanilla and roast character that was spot on not overdone for the style and not even a hint of 9% alcohol

12 oz bottle: pours anthracite black with a beautiful dark khaki head. my god the aroma is amazing. the intilal aroma is coffee, sweet creamy chocolatey rich mocha coffee, not over powering. very sensual.hints of carramel vanilla and dark fruit peek though. flavors of of coffee and mocha. vanilla dark fruit caramel, beautiful. silky smooth in the mouth. carbonation is perfect. its very hard to believe this beer is 9 percent abv, very well hidden. all i can say is wow. duck rabbit has outdone itself. i had this on draft about a month ago at the saucer and was like this its pretty good but now as i sit here savoring it fropm the bottle i realize that it is more than pretty good, its amazing.

I had this beer for the first time last night in Greenville (GVegas) at Christyís Europub (just a few miles from Farmville where the beer is made). I got to say I was blown away. Very dark, very thick beer which to me had a strong aroma and flavor of good olí North Carolina blackstrap molasses! Wonderful beer. I cant wait to get some more.

Beautiful, sweet, coffee, dried fruit, mild alcohol, complex aroma. Pour is dark brown, slight light brown head. My sweet lord, flavor is awesome. No flaws, and terribly complex. Roasty, chocolate, some sweetness, dried fruit. Alcohol is hidden quite well. Medium to full body. This is the bomb, pretty much flawless, perfectly balanced yet comples. Iím gonna go buy a lot and send it to all of my friends. Yum.

WOW! I am floored. This thing is wonderful. Aroma is high in malts and caramel. Flavor is something to savor. It is very malty with a nice sweet finish. Alcohol is niclely hidden. Outstanding job on this brew.
