COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbit Hoppy Bunny American Black Ale is both intensely hoppy and intensely BLACK! Eight separate hop additions offer delicious bitterness and beguiling hop aroma/flavor. Heavily represented among these hops are Chinook, which provides deep pine and sticky citrus components and a New Zealand hop called Motueka, from which we get bright fruit and spearmint notes.

Bottle, Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours black with two-inches of brown head. Smells of dark fruits. Tastes on tangy pine, soap, and chocolate.

dwr1962 (47) - Wellsburg, West Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Aroma of hops and almost a coffee smell. Pours almost black with dark brown head and moderate lacing. It resembles a combination of a really good porter and an IPA.. It’s palate is a bit coating- more of a sipper than a session beer. A really good beer overall.

b3shine (6509) - Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle to snifter (shared by jmborggren). Looks good; cola with thin white beige lacing. Smells and tastes solid; dark malt, bitter hops, and roast. Decent on the palate. Enjoyable.

JDBaker11058 (1517) - Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Appearance: silky near-black pour, with half a finger of medium tan head and decent lacing. Aroma: surprisingly strong note of chocolate, balanced by pine, resin, and citrus. Taste: bitter dark chocolate, with strong hop notes (pine, grapefruit, and mint). Finish: dry and bitter, with lingering coffee roast and resin. Notes: Silky and drinkable palate, roasty, with full hoppy bitterness. Feels like an extremely hoppy porter, but I feel that way about the style in general. Decent.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2013
12oz bottle: pours a mostly opaque with a creamy froth of beige head. Has a lightly sweet toasted dark malty nose with lots of resiny piny hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and fine carbonation with sweet dark malts and some light roast, well-balanced with crisp hop flavor and bitterness. Finishes drier and bittersweet. True to style and dangerously drinkable.

keepersj12 (2920) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Intense aroma of pine, citrus, fruit, chocolate, coffee from a dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. The flavor is mostly dark chocolate and coffee with a nice balance of hops on the back of the sip. Quite complex and evolving as the beer warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great overall beer. Dark almost black appearance. Flavor is roasty and toasty with a nice touch of hop. Could drink this one all night. Well at least until the keg kicks!

Braudog (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Pitch black, just a bit of sticky head. Drinks with a gritty, dark chocolate essence up front. There’s a tease of some hoppiness but not enough to warrant the moniker IMHO. I’d call this a sturdy porter and move on. (#5023, 5/14/2013)

chinchill (2905) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Served by a brewery rep. at the 2012 NC Brewers Fest. {from notes} A: pours near black with a lasting brown head. The head is creamy and coats the glass on the way down. S Hops plus dark malt. Some spice and pine. T: An excellent and flavorful mix of hops and dark malt -- a generous and well-proportioned mix of both. M: Creamy smooth’ full body is more substantial than might be expected. Semi-dry finish. O: excellent and highly drinkable.
