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.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. The dark malts are mildly roasty bitter. Good piney floral hops with an overtone of light citrus. Crisp light finish. Nice.

NikkTwist (2003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2015
Draft at Redwood. Very dark brown pour with a large frothy tan head. Lots of wet lace. Dark chocolate. Leather. A nice dark burnt element to it. Mild black pepper spiciness. Medium-bodied when cold but seemed to thin as it warmed (which is unusual because it tends to be the other way around.) Not bad, but not as good as Duck-Rabbit stouts.

Bottle. Poured clear black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and earthy aroma. Medium to full body and a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark bittersweet flavor to medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a good complex beer.

On tap at Barley’s Taproom and Pizzeria. Somewhat strange aroma with licorice. Smooth roasty taste with fruity american hops. Only slightly bitter. Not bad at all.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. This is a black ale. Just as it says. Chocolate and coffee malts, but cleaner malt wise than a stout. The finish is very clean. A nice beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, chocolate, mild hoppy character, earthy, mild bitterness, seems more like a porter they tried to throw some hops in. Decent enough, but softer than I would expect from these guys.
