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.

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

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.

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. Massive beige head. Heady malty caramel aroma. Creamy as it pours, dark brown after settling. Caramel and bread core with a mildly bitter finish. Excellent brew.

Thick, rich deep brown coloured body with a cola coloured glow near the bottom and a dense, three centimetre tall orange, copperish tan head - beautiful beer. Aroma of cherries, pit fruits, raisins, malt, brown sugar, molasses, grapes and a bit more deep fruits and a slight bit of oak. Full-bodied; Dense, thick mouthful with a rich malty flavour at first then hits hard with the sugars - brown sugar, molasses and even a hint of vanilla comes through. Aftertaste shows a bit of complexity with caramel showing first, then some fruits, peat and a little chocolate finishing it out. Overall, a very good beer that isnít light by any means, but the complexity and accuracy of the style is impressive, even for this beermaker who already produces great beers. Quite simply, if you like beer - buy this. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-July-2011 sampled at home in Washington on 28-July-2011.

Bottle. Pours out a brown color with a tan head on it. Smell is roasted and has hints of chocolate and a little bit of hops / alcohol. Taste is sweet and smooth. Pretty easy to drink without feeling too heavy. Not really my favorite style of beer, but I did enjoy this one. Good stuff from the people in NC.
