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.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - FEB 3, 2013
12oz bottle into a snifter. Not sure of the age on this but I know it has been in my fridge for a year or so. Pours a clear dark brown with a slight reddish tint. A very small light brown head is quick to fade leaving a thin ring around the top of the beer. Aroma is full of brown sugar, caramel, and toffee. There is a slight metallic note which seems a little off to me. There are also some faint grassy aromas. Overall it is pretty weak. This weakness carries over into the taste which is really quite underwhelming. Plenty of caramel and brown sugar but there is a strong vegetal character which becomes a little off-puting after awhile. It is very DMS like and I almost wonder if this is an unintended flaw. It isn’t bad for awhile but it does start to limit drinkability. Alcohol is well-hidden but the mouthfeel is on the watery side. Overall, I am very unimpressed with this offering from Duck Rabbit. There is just an overall lack of everything from the aroma to the flavor to the mouthfeel. Way too much DMS and a lack of much malt or hops. Maybe this has improved since the batch I got but I really can’t recommend.

glennmastrange (2620) - 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.

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 (4997) - 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.

Duck Rabbit is never bad. This has the brown sugar and raisins you’d expect from a doppelbock, very slight coffee in the finish. A little sweet.

I am a real fan of this brewery, never had a bad beer from it, and this is definitely no exception! Pours a dark thick almost syrupy amber, with a thin lacy tan head. The aroma is extremely pleasant and that of roasted coffee beans, malted chocolate and dates. Taste is both pleasant and shocking, definitely wakes up the taste buds with touches of malted chocolate, dark chocolate covered cherries or chocolate covered coffee beans. Many different flavors all at once,a bit sweet, a bit sour, a bit overpowering yet pleasant. Trace of dark alcohol such as a brandy. finishes nicely leaving a full palate, ending a bit sweet but also a bit dry. Definitely a good beer!

4 oz. pour, on tap at Duckworth’s in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. Consumed on 9-22-15. Pours an amber / medium brown with taupe head. Very nice appearance. Pitted fruit and chocolate scents. Really nice, caramel, toffee taste. Sophisticated flavors. Perhaps a bit sweeter than ideal but that is quibbling; it’s quite good. One of the best doppelbocks I’ve had. Delicious. A touch of booze in the flavor. Sawdust finish. Medium body. Lively but not particularly crisp in the palate.

12 oz bottle. Pours light brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, sweet cherries, caramel and hint of coffee. Body is full, creamy and slightly crisp. Taste is of caramel malt, herbal hops, cherries and peppery alcohol. Finish is long, sweet first then becomes dry and peppery. Rich, tasty excellent brew.

Bottle into lager glass, clear darker rusty-copper color with tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, nuttiness, bread, cocoa, dark fruits and faint vanilla. Taste adds sour cherries, red wine, chocolate, roasted grain, raisins and brown sugar. Medium-heavy body, low carbonation, rich, creamy with fruity roast finish. Best doppelbock I’ve had to date, excellent.
