COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbitor Dopplebock is a powerfully malty German-style lager. The malty / grainy flavors so dominate this beer, it’s like a whole loaf of bread in every glass! Is it a beverage or is it a meal? It’s both.

Tap at the Sessions. Pours deep dark mahogany brown with a small tanned head leaving lace. Aroma is slightly roasted seeet malty dark fruits fidges. Flavor is velvety, sweet slightly roasted malty in front, adding more fruits raisins and bitterness with some nutty bready tones in the middle sustaining the flavors all the way to the end.

Originally reviewed: 7/13/09. On tap at City Bev here in town. They had the last limited release, Paul’s Day Off, so I was pumped to see this one on tap now. Came out a deep chocolate brown with ruby edges. A nice 2-finger tan head rests comfortably on top. Smells of fresh-baked breads, chocolate, molasses, and toasted sugar. Very nice smell. The mouth was a little disappointing. Fairly wet and slick. Expected a bit more carbonation on the tongue, but it was not there. Pretty weak and thin. Flavor was of big chocolate, and pumpernickel bread. Huge mealy taste. Very heavy and fulfilling beer here. Finishes slightly bittersweet, like coffee. Hints of minerals in there as well, which in my experience is a common thread for all DR beers. This is really good.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice tan head and a fair amount of lace. Aroma is of roasted malts, caramel, some alcohol, honey, dark fruits and some resin hops with a hint of coffee. Complex flavor, roasted malts, coffee, caramel, some alcohol bite, dark fruits and a nice hop profile. Dark, smooth and complex with a bitter finish. Very unique.

Bottle. 12 oz. Split with Seannie. Courtesy of Dallas. Thanks, Dude! Pours a toffee brown with a beige, creamy head. Lacing is minimal tiny bubbles and spotty streaks, Aroma of caramel apples, honey, toffee, subtle coffee, some juicy hop resins in the back and some amazing toasted malts. Flavor is tremendously heavy on the toasty malts, milk chocolate, and cinnamon with a big caramel coffee finish. Thanks for the bottle, Dallay!

12 ounce bottle into tulip, bottle dating is not notched. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense tan head with nice retention that reduces to a thin cap that sticks around. Small bits of lacing on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, biscuit, chocolate, molasses, toasted malts, dark fruits, and spicy hops. Very nice aromas here with good balance. Taste of big caramel, toasted malt, chocolate, molasses, biscuit, dark fruit, spiciness, and a bit of booze. Lingering notes of caramel, molasses, toasted malt, biscuit, and spices on the finish for a bit. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel. Alcohol has a decent presence with a decent warming on the finish. Overall a very nice and impressive doppelbock. The alcohol presence is a bit much, but overall still very enjoyable.

Very thin almost non existent head that disappeared rather quickly. Very nice smoky aroma with some sweet malts, peat aromas, a little bit of chocolate and a hint of licorice. Color is a dark, milk chocolate brown. Lots of sweet malts, molasses, licorice, prunes and a bit more smoked peat. Actually a very complex flavor but not overly sweet and malty like many dopplebocks. Finishes with a lingering malts and raisins. A pretty good brew from a very good and consistent brewer.

Pours deep ruby red. With foamy dark tan head. Aroma is of sweet black licorice and dark roasted grain. Taste is initially sweet followed by a subtle smokey spiciness. Bitterness lingers in the end a bit, so it could be a little cleaner, but otherwise good.

Mmm, Duck Rabbit does it again. One of the best dpeelbocks that i have tried. Very complex with a great mouthfeel and good warmth of alcohol.
