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.

I rated this for hop lovers (I am not one). Still, I grabbed this one because I enjoy darker beers. You can tell this one is hoppy while taking in its aroma during a pour. It has good mouth feel and (to me) substantial coffee overtones. I can only handle one of these (and not just because its ABV is 7.3%) but this is a nice addition to the Duck Rabbit family.

nearbeer (4289) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2014
12 oz. Opaque ebony with a lasting film of cream. Nose is orange chocolate, caramel, tea and a touch of tobacco. Taste is orange, mint, cocoa, caramel and earthy tea leaf. Great at first, but the minty green herb takes over way too early and dominates the brew. Medium body is velvety smooth with a low-medium carbonation and a nice balance.

Pours dark black from 12oz bottle. Smooth. It has hop flavor up front, creamy middle, boring finish. Smells chocolatey, malty. Hops open on the tongue.

Pours black into a Sam glass. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Pumpernickel, pine and grapefruit aromas. Chocolate and pit fruit upfront turning to espresso in citrus finish.

gripweed57 (1044) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 19, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Dark brown color topped by a small creamy beige head. Interesting complex aroma, has notes of dark chocolate pine needles and spearmint. Big dark roasted malt flavor has a touch of bittersweet chocolate and resiny hops. Big chewy mouthfeel. Big hoppy finish combines with the dark malts to produce a badass ABA.

jbruner (3032) - Athens, Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a dark black with minimal tan head. Aroma is more toward the roast with a nice citrus hop behind it. Taste is more to the hop flavor, feels like old school hops, the four Cs. Pretty nice.

ElCapitan22 (282) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2014
Pours a dark brown/black color with very nice lacing. Tastes of roasted malts and slightly of coffee. Bitter enough to be an ipa, but not overly bitter. A very difficult thing to do....not taste too hoppy while being an ipa.

Delicious beer! These guys never disappoint! Aroma, unlike the commercial deScription, was all malt. Strong chocolate milkshake and roasted malt. Hint of green hops but very faint. Pour was a nice deep dark brown/near black with a one finger tan head. Taste was delicious. Now the hops come out. Still very malty and chocolatey, but now a nice bitterness comes out. Pine sap and notes of grapefruit balance out the chocolate and malt goodness. Perfectly balanced. Nice strong carbonation.Can’t say enough about this beer.
