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. Pours a flat black body with a large frothy light brown head that left some sticky lace. The nose is really chocolaty with a lighter roastiness and some nice fruity hops. The flavor is a little heavier on the Porter side than the IPA side, which is fine by me. Really chocolaty with minimal roast, citrusy and bright hoppiness with just a moderate bitterness. Nice lingering finish. Light to medium bodied with soft gentle carbonation. Pretty nice hoppy Porter, or what ever you want to call it.

Bottle brought back from NC. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is really hoppy, piney, grassy. Taste is mild bitterness, mild chocolate malt. Good mixture, nothing overwhelming. Think this is good to style. Not my favorite style anymore, but think it is a good example.

Bottle from Hop City. Pours an opaque dark brown with tan colored head. Aroma of hops and roasted malts. Taste is pretty unique, nice hoppiness that blends well with a coffee/chocolate/malts.

On tap. Dark amber with tan head and nice lacing. Roasty malt aroma with piney hops. Similar taste. More sweet than bitter. Medium body, carb has a little bite, but goes down smooth. Nice black ipa.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Draft. Poured dark brown with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma was floral hops and roasted malt. Flavor was roasted malt, light coffee, lots of resinous and citrusy hops. And yes, I got a bit of the mint, which, for me, detracted from an otherwise solid beer. Already a lot going on here -- the mint was a bridge too far.

Shag (2839) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Black with a tan head. Some coffee, chocolate, faint citrus in the nose. Its more malty and stout like than IPA like. Flavor is semi sweet. Overall good beer.

Thanks John! Pours a super dark brown with a rich tan head. The smell is roasted malt, brown sugar, citrus, pine. The taste is big roasty dark malt, dry, citrus and pine, molasses, licorice ending dry and very roasty. Fine carbonation, and medium body. Well the world of extreme flavors collide here...super roasty malt and big hops. If you are into two big elements fighting for dominance then this is the beer for you. It’s not a bad beer but a bit of a taste war for me.

Thanks to Rian for sharing!!
The beer starts smooth, very sticky. Intense malty, roasted but too sticky for me. The nice floral hops are covered by the roasted malty dry body. The aftertaste is smooth, intense, roasted with a fresh hoppy note lying over the malty intense brew!
great, but a bit too sticky to let the hops come through! 12/12/13/12
