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 (781) - 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.

Pours a very dark brown, nearly black. It has a small tan head. Aroma is caramel malts, some dark fruit coming through. It does have a slight alcohol smell and taste. You can definitely tell the alcohol is present but it is not overpowering. Flavor is very rich, thick and malt forward, on the sweeter side. The darkest richest dopplebock I have ever had. That is not a bad thing. This is simply a great beer!

From a bottle. Pours hazy reddish brown with a fizzy bubbly beige head. Tastes like roasted malt, roasted coffee, sweet molasses, earthy, light booze and light ash. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted nuts, sweet malty booze, toast.

sonnycheeba (3453) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours brown with ruby highlights and creamy beige head. Aroma is cookie and caramel malts, fig, dates, faint plums, faint spice, and some boozy notes. Flavor is malt forward, some sweetness, dark fruit esters, and light bitterness; dry finish with a touch of woodiness. Medium body and carbonation.

artmcd8 (1560) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Dark brown pour. Tan head. Definitely darker than most dopplebocks I have had. Most roasty and dark fruit than usual as well. Definitely a good beer though.

Beerman6686 (4293) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2014
This one poured a darker brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of toasted malt, smoke, chocolate and some dark fruits. Flavor was mainly prunes and smoke, some chocolate too. Tasty, but a little off style.

Great for style, with nice coffee and roast. Pours murky dark brown with food head and lacing. Nice German malt finish. Good package. Bottle from grape and gourmet.

Excellent Dopplebock, possibly one of the best I have ever had outside of German brewed!

jcnielsen (2040) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep brown color with white head. Roasty, malty, syrupy, toffee aromas. Toffee, syrupy, chocolate flavors. Pretty solid doppelbock, one of the better American versions I’ve had in awhile.

This a full flavored beer, malty doesn't even come close...it's so much more. Enjoy one, maybe two...with a premium cut of meat, preferably venison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
