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.

355mL thanks to nuplastikk. Pours deep brown to black with a thick, tan head. Thick retention and sheety lacing. Rich, spicy on style Black IPA nose with squash, onion, savory dark chocolate, spicy cocoa power and cinnamon. Taste is very bitter, dry, one-note. Not bad. A little too watery for me. But certainly on style. I can see the spearmint character but there is more lemon tea in the finish than mint.
