rangerred (861) - 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 isnít 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 canít recommend.

Hopswagger (188) - 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

chinchill (1382) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 26, 2014
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.

AirForceHops (2722) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2014
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 (196) - Greenville, South Carolina, 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.

Best by: unk A: Dark brown with only a thick ring of toasted cream foam and spotty lace. Opaque. S: cocoa, caramel, cola and crystalized sugar make up the nose on this one. Itís nice. T: Theres a certain grass character along with some more sweet malts and a toasted cola flavor. Interesting. M: Medium bodied with light carb for the style. Long slick finish. O: unusual doppelbock, and nicely refined. A deviation from what I usually anticipate to be too sweet and overly esterized, this one is nice. Serving type: bottle 11-28-2011
