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.

Beerathon (1249) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Everything that is great about a porter and an IPA combined. Big hop nose, but toasty malts are there too. Pine is evident in the nose and taste. Big mouthfeel. Aftertaste is that of a porter. Good.

tricyclist (802) - Florida, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Sample pour, black with light tan head. Nose is fully roasted malts with a light hop background.. maybe very slight coffee? Flavor is much more, but different... hoppy with full roasted malts... grassy, cardboard (but still very fresh)... really good.... nice lacing. really nice lacing.

Cakes (374) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2012
12 oz. Bottle Mahogany colour with a thick, foamy head and strong lacing. A "little chunky" - tastes thick,. as I feel a true dark beer should. Tastes of caramel, bread, hay, cereal, chocolate, and coffee. Nice, balanced hops. Well done here.

Panzuriel (1340) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Hoppy Bunny pours a dark black opaque liquid with a firm head of small bubbles. Nose is cedar hops and just a hint of caramel. Taste is dry and tasty cedar hops with medium malt apparent as a roasty nutty coffee smoothness towards the end finishing with a decent amount of good bitters. very nice beer.

PorterPounder (5653) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown leading to black with an ultra thick off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has some minty accents with a hint of chocolate. Interesting, delectable flavor with some bitter chocolate notes, some spearmint, a touch of citrusy bitterness. Mouthfeel has a bit of twanginess to it. Not bad at all.

Nice coffee and chocolate notes. Deep black with a tan head. Bitter with just a touch of chocolate sweetness. Dry with a snappy bitter finish.

I've yet to have a bad brew from this brewery. This one isn't my favorite. It's a solid beer, but it seems a bit flat in flavor. Nose is toasty and hoppy, cocoa, malts. The taste is overly bitter for me. The heavy dark vs the hop is a bit monotone and not well rounded. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this one. I'll definitely have it again for a second try. -Fish!

BeerFlavoredBeer (254) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Interesting aromas of sweet, roasted malts and something savory mixed in with the hops - not unlike a sweet and smoky barbecue sauce. Moderate carbonation and a light-to-medium body on this one. Big, smooth roasted flavors. A little bit of an acrid note at the back end. Espresso and a licorice-like spiciness make appearances. The finish is bright with pine resin hops, but not overly bitter. The acidity is just enough to make your mouth water. Very nice ABA.
