COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark brown with a huge frothy off-white head that lasted throughout and had excellent lacing. The aroma was of roasted dark bread malts, a sweet leathery yeast with hints of coffee, chocolate, toffee, raisons and a mild alcohol scent. It tasted lightly sweet with a mild coffee overtone at first and ended with a chocolate-coffee flavor with notes of raisons and had a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel was medium in body and kind of watery in texture and had a flat carbonation.Overall a tasty brew but not too exciting.

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 (4963) - 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!

islay (2104) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2015
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.

radio_nowhere (1367) - Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2015
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.
