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.

600 rating! 355ml bottle from Denman Liquor store. Aroma is some spices, smoky notes, chocolate, roasted seeds, oily, leather. Taste is dark fruits, oily, roasted malt, chocolate notes. Roasted malt, leather, dark fruits, smoky aftertaste. Very good balanced beer, in which you can’t find 9 ABV at all.

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 (4920) - 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.

maley1 (1074) - Calgary, 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 (1120) - 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
