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.

Pours dark brown to black with a fairly thick khaki-mocha head that settles to a ring and leaves some hanging lace. Nose involves some dark chocolate, roasted malt, nuttiness, touches of alcohol, some earthy hops, cherries and other dark fruits, almost a wooden quality. Taste is fairly sweet, fairly bitter, lightly tart. Fuller bodied, rich, crisp, oily, softer carb, with a warm toasty bitter finish. Pretty close to the Celebrator for me. A really nice dopplebock, lots of complexity, yet very approachable.

Dark and rich mahogany pour with a small fluffy beige head. Aroma was full of rich caramel, lightly burnt sugar and fruit cake. Flavors were rich and decadent, light fruit, lots of caramel, cake, touch of booze. Creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Finish was slightly sweet with more notes of burnt sugar and vanilla. I am really coming around to this style and this is at the top of the heap. Incredible.

Bottle. Light milk chocolate aroma. Dark brown with a large tan head. Toasty caramel, chocolate malt, and dark fruit flavor. Body on the light side of medium, soft carbonation. Pretty tasty.

drowland (6037) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 31, 2013
7/31/13. 12oz bottle from Five Points. Deep amber red pour with a nice two finger head that fades to a ring but laces like a champ. Rich maltiness in the aroma, caramel, burnt toffee, roast, and a wisp of smoke and alcohol. Malty flavor as well, of course, lots of caramel, some toasted bread, roast, a wisp of smoke, and an herbal aspect that reminds me of root beer. A touch of acidity lingers, almost a lemon aspect. Not bad.

Pours a brown/copper color with a small light khaki head that sticks around for a bit. Smells of sweet malts, chocolate and caramel. Taste is great chocolate to start then it goes into more caramel and dark fruit, with a fair amount of booze to be detected in the finish. Great beer, very enjoyable

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle. Lactic acid and light chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown with small head. Mildly sweet chocolate malt and lightly astringent/bitter alcohol/lactic acid flavor. Smooth. Pretty good - one of the best US doppelbocks Iíve had.

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle pours a dark red/brown with a long lasting thin tan top. Scent is caramel and dark bread. Taste is sweet caramel, some toast and a hint of dark fruit. Nice

Patrickctenchi (3654) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Pours cloudy, deep wooden brown with a short, thick, bright-tan head. Aroma is candied fruit, raisin, syrup, licorice. Taste is sweet, candied...licorice, caramel, nuts, dark, dried fruits. A slight herbal-mild spice flavour. Very nice...only a hint of the alcohol content...very soft and smooth for 8.5%.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2013
12 ounce bottle - $2.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body, housing a little hint dirtied garnet at the edge against the list. Smallish, light beige head that settles fairly quickly. No appreciable lacing or retention.

Smell: Sweet-scented, alcoholic, with a fruitiness of figs and grape-flavored candy (like Nerds or such), a step ahead of the dark-colored syrup, Tootsie roll, and molasses.

Taste: Molasses, caramel atop toast, and a noted roastiness. Dark syrup sweetness upfront. Rather bright fruitiness, fig and grape, followed by slight, herbal hops and a persistent pinch of alcohol (a bit fusel). Snippet of licorice. Slight nuttiness, with a touch of Tootsie Roll. Drying, rather warming, fruity finish. A little coffee pops into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Potent in many of its aspect, itís not the best doppelbock to be had, though, Iím sure you could do worse.

NeoHippie2 (991) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, toffee, caramel, and notes of coffee. Rich and robust flavor with sweet caramel notes. A respectable example of the style,
