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.

Bottle sent to me by the patient, kind, & chill Durhambeer.
Pours a very deep amber with ruby hues when itís held up to the light.

The beer has a really nice menagerie of dopple-bocky characteristics. Itís got itís sweet moments, toffee, raisin, and sweetly flavored malt. To me it smells like a huge toootsie roll.

The flavor is very toffee & vanilla forward. Itís got those sort of sweet on roasty malt tones.
The beer sets real heavy on the palate, which is pretty A-OK!

Well done representation of the style. Very low (zero?) carbonation a bit of a negative for me and agree with the observation from other reviewers on thinness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scotchzombie (514) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2014 Pours a deep garnet-tinged brown with a creamy antiqued head that fades to a thick coating and leaves wet lacing. Some bubbles coat the side of the glass, deep. Aroma is bready malts, sweetened with molasses. Predominant taste is rich roasted malts that give way to subtle flavors of raisins, plums and dark baked bread. More roast and some bitterness to close. Flavors gain intensity with warming. A bit thin but easily one of the best American d-bocks I've had.

Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2014
P: Pours a cloudy dark burnt amber body with cappuccino froth that layers the top. S: Lots of banana and clove, dark figs, sugary pound cake, maple syrup, rich caramel malt, molasses and booze. T/M: Rich dark fruits, caramel malts, burnt molasses, bitter bananas, spiced rum soaked plums, melted dark chocolate, earthy hops by the hand full and apple peels. Thick syrupy body up front then thins out and melts in your mouth. Finishes semi dry and lingers cinnamon apple peels. O: The mouthfeel on this is weird as it starts out syrupy an thick then kinda thins out. The aroma is fantastic and the taste delivers nicely as well. Rich roasty meal in a glass. Serving type: bottle

12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Some sediment left in the bottom of the bottle even after a ícompleteí pour. A: body is dark reddish-brown with a decent tan head. Spotty lacing. Very fruity aroma and taste, especially the latter. Baked dates and some chocolate in the nose. Dried plums, dates and raisins on the tongue. O: an exceptional dopplebock worth seeking out.

Bottle poured into an English stout glass. Poured a dark brown, almost opaque with a slow to disappear tan head. The beer at first was underwhelming, I left it and came back 20 min later and it changed, changed for the better. Overall I like the beer for its warmer characteristics.

12 oz. bottle thanks to queenholly. This bottle has sat a few months and hasnít hurt it what so ever. Dark mahogany color with thick lasting head retention in a dimpled mug. Aroma start with yeast then transition into sweet malt and molasses.

Flavor is a near reflection of the aroma. Dark roasted grain, molasses, dark toasted crackers. Dark bready notes. Almost like pumpernickel. Chocolate malt is also shows up. The body is medium leaning on thick with a nice creamy texture.

Overall the drinkability is really high and a nice American version of a classic German style. I enjoyed drinking this. This is worth a buy or trade if you enjoy German lagers.

Jamesthebrit (415) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Aroma is roasty with a good nutty note Pours more brown than I thought. Cream head dissipates quickly. This is really good. More sweet than the other duck rabbit offerings. The metallic note is present but not overwhelming, nutty. Very good, A little thin on the palate but for the style very well done. Smooth. Good flavors. Can rest there for a while. This is probably the best duck rabbit so far (and Iíve had the Baltic porter!!) the metallic note is well hidden and the sweet and nutty notes are very well done. Nice medium body, great beer.

Bottle thanks to Beerman6686. Pours very dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of rich caramel, molasses, toffee, fruit cake, dark chocolate and toasted nuts. Full bodied. Delicious.
