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

Received in trade from VncentLIFE, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a deep dark brown color with a decent tan head that shows moderate retention and minimal lace. Smells of dark dried fruit, caramel, and burnt sugar with a hint of ash mixed in there as well. Taste is dark malty with a hint of mineral and ash. All the usual suspects are here, caramel, dark sugar, prunes, plums, raisins. Light roasted grains are a bit out of place. Little to no hop presence, but there really shouldnít be. Medium to thick body light level of carbonation with a caramel thick mouthfeel. There are better examples of the style, but this is one damn fine brew. I quite enjoyed this one, roasted grains and all.

Aroma: lots of malt, sweet caramel and dark sugars, very rich, slight chocolate note, also some alcohol. Pours a deep mahogany with a thick tan head, good retention, dissipates to a ring of foam. Big malt flavor, caramel and molasses, brown sugar, figs, warming alcohol in the finish, low bitterness. Medium-full body, medium carbonation, creamy texture. Very nice brew.

Very good. Not overly malty or sweet. Somewhat strong, but balanced overall. Thick and smooth with a deep flavor that reminds me of strong ales.

A dopplebock I really like is a rare thing. This one hits the mark for me. Dark in color, could have benefited from a creamier head. But rich and full and not cloyingly sweet like many. Thick, chewey, somewhat bready, almost going in a belgian quad direction but stopping well short because itís not overly yeasty or estery, just a nice and mellow, and very malt forward. Thanks jsanda.

Time to clean out the fridge. Cloudy dark brown with a white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, dark fruits, brown sugar, and alcohol. Flavor is very sweet and malty with caramel, raisin, chocolate, and brown sugar.

received in trade from emacgee. WHOLE lotta stuff going on in this one.. Dark brown, reddish hue pour.. Aroma was immediately of alcohol and then roasted sugar cane. Chocolate, and dark fruit in there also. Flavor is same as aroma. Good thick palate. But is this a dopplebock - to me it doesnít come close to comparing to Ayinger - it is more a stout wannabe and does a pour job of hiding the alcohol and thus isnít that enjoyable. Kudos for the complexity, but too much alcohol and not a dopplebock

Beerdedone (2609) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Draft. Pours deep brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and raisins. Big & rich flavor of dark malts, chocolate, caramel, dark fruit, raisins, brown sugar and had a touch of toffee.

NachlamSie (2752) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Bottle from the Veggie Wagon. Pours a murky brown-red. Aroma is fruity, roasty, and has that funky Duck-Rabbit tartness thatís in all their beers. I kind of dig this as itís not overly vegetal or too sweet like some other bocks. This one has a slick black cherry-like flavor with surprising coffee notes and a toasted brown sugar/fig finish. Pretty tasty.

Great beer. This Dark beer reminds me of a really good whiskey. The taste is sweet malty and alcohol.

Bottle. Poured a brown color with a tan head. Aroma was roasted, malted, sweet alcohol notes. Flavor was a sweet, roasted malts. Highly drinkable, boozy, enjoyable.
