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.

c_lee_burton (139) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle. Pours almost black with a slight dark tan head. Smells like sweet raisin bread. So many flavors with raisin, malts, roasted nuts, some hint of cocoa, plum, and a little bitter. Medium body with a lingering sticky finish of roasty goodness. Delicious and complex. My favorite Baltic Porter that I look forward to every year.

Smooth dark chocolate, and some roast espresso on the nose. Just great. Super smooth chocolate across the palate, and sweet roast finish. Medium bodied. Lingering espresso.

Transfer from BA review on 3-22-13- Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Served a deep brown nearly black brew with a thick and creamy one finger tan colored head. The head has a nice level of retention, slowly fading over about 5 min to leave a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is big of dark and roasty smells. A sweet dark fruit aroma of cherry and plum are mixed with dark chocolate and a good presence of a roasted malt smell. Along with these are some notes of a light caramel nature as well as a good presence of a boozy smell that overall creates a very warming smell. Taste – The flavor begins with a relatively healthy amount of dark fruit and a roasted malt tastes. Cherry, prune and raisin are all present upfront and are quickly met with other flavors of a dark chocolate nature soon after the initial tastes. As the flavor advances further the fruit grows slightly less intense with other flavors of some more roasted malt taking its place. Toward the end the darker flavors of chocolate and roasted malt are now most potent and are joined by a complementing smoke and alcohol taste which in the end leave a nice dark but still sweeter more burnt flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the creamier side with a carbonation level that is on the lower side of the scale. The thicker and creamier body are great for helping all the roasted, chocolate and smoky flavors of the brew to really stand out while the lighter carbonation, coupled with the creamy nature and the boozy taste at the end, make it a nice sipping beer. Overall – A good sweeter Baltic porter that is nice to sit back with and sip over a nice cool evening. A rather enjoyable brew and one to try if you get the opportunity.

davey101 (708) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Best enjoyed by 12/2014. 12 oz into a tulip. Pours a pitch black with little edging. Nose is chocolate, coffee, and roast malts. Hint of salted peanuts and dark fruit. Taste is deeply roasted malts and milk chocolate. Thick and coating. A no frills baltic porter. Just a smidge behind Jacks Abby but incredibly solid.

Underdogs88 (180) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Super rich malty aroma with notes of toffee, chocolate, toasted bread and fruity esters. Dark brown with a tan head with good head retention. Flavor is malt forward and sweet. Dark fruit esters are high. Roasted malt lingers on the end and drys it out. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with medium low carbonation. Overall an excellent beer. A little too much roast for a Baltic porter though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

First let's me start by saying that I am loving this beer. The only reason for the low score is because they put Baltic porter on the label. If you are going to declare a style it should taste like the style. Besides it being way to high in abv it also has way to much roast and more of a RIS flavor then anything else. I am loving the beer. But couldn't be labeled more incorrectly ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
