An American brown ale brewed with loads of hops from start to finish (itís hoppy and beautifully bitter). Amarillo hops in the boil provide a spicy citrusy bitterness. Saaz dry hops in the fermentor provide a refined flowery aroma. These hops are supported by a grain bill of seven varieties of malt.

Poured brown with a tan head. Aroma was musty and earthy (mostly dirt). Flavor had a hint of chocolate, but was mostly earthy tasting. Again soil was the dominant flavor. Bland and dry.

Bottle, from trade with ross. Ok nose, sharp. Having a hard time calling it. Grassy, lime, minor chocolate. Clean dark orangy brown color, good head, faded slowly to a thin cover, good lacing. Bitter flavor, has bite. lime, grass maybe grapefruit rind? Seltzer water. Medium body, chalky creamy mouthfeel, bitterdry finish. Huh, unique. Wish I was describing this better. Thanks ross.

Very stout! This beer is something unexpected, more hoppy than one would expect but yet somehow Duck Rabbit brought it all together for a decent brew . Iíll have it again.

Hazy dark chestnut colour. Head rises huge but gently falls to a rich, inch-thick layer. Great aroma of fresh toasted grains, layers of chocolate malt and earth and an appetizingly dusty yeastiness. The body starts creamy then gets fizzier. This means the front is dominated by sweet but simple brown sugar & deglet noor-ish malts but the end features deep dark chocolate, mocha and bitter, rooty hop textures. As brawny and complex a brown ale as Iíve found that still remains true to the style.

12 oz bottle. Pours a deep red-brown with a sizable head. Weaker flavor than I was expecting. The dominate flavor is that of hops. I guess that I was expecting a more malty flavor. Not a bad beer but not my favorite Duck Rabbit brew.

The flavor and aromas both consist of some chocolate malt, some walnuts, and some carmel. very smooth and drinkable. A decent session, and one of the better brown ales Iíve had... kickass.

I happen to like American Brown Ale. This is not the smooth and malty English brown one might expect. The brown is deeper and richer than most, in fact it might be a little less dark than some porters Iíve had. Then again, itís as hoppy if not a little mlore than some pale ales Iíve had. All of these are in balance. The intricate malt of biscuuit toffee, and whole grain bread is nicely and dramaticaly off-set by a spicey hop that bitters the palate and contributes a nice clean finish.

decaturstevo (5519) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 10, 2006
A nice malty aroma that smells sweeter than the beer is. Pours a dark amber brown. A light to medium bodied beer with a smooth foamy feel in the mouth. Toasted malt flavor with some caramel. A bitter that is a bit more than I expected, but not a bad beer. Quite pleasant.

Very middle-of-the-road, this beer pours a quite tasty head. I enjoyed the finish and the carbonation levels donít bother me. PLus, I really like this breweryís enthusiasm.

Clear light chestnut color with a tall beige head. Tart chocolate and caramel aromas. With the taller head and tart aroma I fear a possible infection. My fears are quelled by a soft bittersweet chocolate flavor with a Light pine undertone. Not your average brown. Reminds me of DFH in a way. Not too heavy on the sweeter malts and a nice balance of pine, citrus and chocolate and black malt. Truly one of the better browns I have had.
