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.

rollinsr (568) - Atlanta, - OCT 17, 2012
Pours a dark hazy brown with some rich tan head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts along with dark fruits. Flavor is very sweet with some smokiness. More of the smoky and nutty-sweet flavors come out as this beer warms up. Duck-Rabbit has quickly become one of my go-to breweries for their consistently remarkable brews.

Bottle from Craft and Draft Columbia. Pours out like a coke. Sweet malt and molasses aroma with some booziness. More malt and molasses in the flavor. Pretty tasty and easy drinking for almost 9 ABV.

Cola appearance with a sweet pumpernickel nose. Taste is the same, with roast and caramel. Not cloying, but pleasantly sweet. Thanks, dad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

60minuteman (1355) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2016
See-through dark brown pour, no head to speak of. Smells of raisins, plums, malt, chocolate, molasses and tree bark. Medium-full body that lingers and dark malt/bread finishing boozy. Tasty and easy to drink but a touch on the sweet side.

ChadPolenz (1700) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2016
2015 BJCP Category: 9A Doppelbock

AROMA: Very strong maltiness. Slight caramel; some milk chocolate. Strong presence of dark fruit and baked bread. faint alcohol. 11/12

APPEARANCE: Brown/ruby red. A tidbit hazy though CO2 is visible. Moderate tan foam fizzles away quickly. 2/3

FLAVOR: Huge malty sweetness (but not cloying) with delectable dark fruit flavors throughout. Some confectionery flavors of caramel and milk chocolate can be found in the background. Mild spicy hop bitterness is perceived on the finish as is alcohol. Clean lager character. 18/20

MOUTHFEEL: Full bodied with a thick, soft texture (but never syrupy). Alcohol warmth is pleasant and gentle. Remarkably clean aftertaste. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Probably the best American doppelbock I’ve ever had. To-spec in nearly every way. Delicious and fun to drink. 10/10

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, light off-white head that dissipates quickly. Sweet aroma of raisins and molasses, kind of slight.

glennmastrange (2681) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2016 Bottle. Moderate roasted, caramel and cereal for the malt, faint grass for the hops, light to moderate broth and dough for the yeast, with wood, smoke, brown sugar and bourbon in the background. Head is average size, frothy, beige with some slippery lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is deep dark burgundy. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic, and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, a little syrupy with a soft to lively carbonation and a sticky finish.16 This Doppelbock has everything true the style, nice meaty and sweet tastes and aromas.

thegreenrooster (4030) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Pour is a thick, murky syurpy brown with no head at all. Aroma is a nice brown sugar covered plum with some raison and treacle. Flavor is a nice pumpernickel black bread, dark fruit and toffee. Like a liquid tootsie roll. Very rich and nuanced with multiple flavors playing over each other. I have not checked my ratings but this has to be the best dopplebock I’ve ever had. So rich with dark fruit and brown sugar.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Plum wine, caramel cake batter aroma - sweet, vinous, vanilla, nice. Standard longneck, swamp water ruby-brown beer. Fruity - plums, raisins, dates. A little metal, vanilla wash. Body goes a little wobbly and watery in the middle. Quite good. New Leaf Market.
