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.

opaque black mahogany with a thin beige head. medium body with high carbonation.

aroma: citrusy hops with notes of black malt and dark fruit.

taste: astringent piney hops, black roasted barley, a hint of caramel, and intensely bright and minty late hops.

i prefer earthier, more pungent hops in a hoppy black ale, rather than citrusy and minty hops like this.

Bottle. Awesome to see a new duck rabbit. Pours a pitch black with a nice tan head. Fair amount of lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of pine hops with some dark roastiness. Taste is a nice chalky dark chocolate with a burst of bitter hop flavor. Slightly thick on the tongue but drinkable. Really nice example of the style.

Bottle. Pours a dark black body with a wash khaki head. Nose is a conundrum of flavors big roasted malt notes, huge smack of resiny bitter hops, dare i say some chocolate and weak coffee aromas? Aggressively hoppy, at first yet this fades to roasted and nutty flavors well after the sip has passed your tongue. This brew is nicely balanced, and complex. Some black IPAís have brewing flaws that are covered up by heavy roasted flavors and huge hops, not so with this beer. I enjoyed this, it got even better as it warmed closer to 50-60 degrees. Bouquet opens up, very quality beer here. Well done Duck-Rabbit.

12oz bottle from Chipís in OBX. Darkest brown in color with a large lasting light tan head. Amazing aroma of piney hops with roasty and chocolate notes. Maybe some molasses. Smooth and roasty flavor with milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and nice hop flavors. Medium-bodied and very smooth with hop oils. A damn good example of the style, one of the best Iíve had.
