3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 Beer it forward project. Bottle poured pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma is quick to the roasted malt, but quickly gives way to raw cacao and then hits with bitter dark chocolate and ends with almost tart unripe fruit note. Flavor is incredibly similar but in reverse finishing with the dark roasted malt and some lactic sweetness. Smooth. Very good stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A complex stout that I found quite pleasing. Flavor is mostly dry, but there’s a subtle sweetness that is not too much. Light-bodied and fresh. Aroma is a balance of roast and fairly strong fruity notes. Fairly creamy texture, but with a slightly edgy finish. Interesting to the last drop, and the type of beer that left me feeling quite good after drinking it too. I have had many good experiences with Duck-Rabbit brews, and this is another to add to that list.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with a thin fuzzy tan head. Aroma is roast, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malts and thick dark chocolate. There is just a hint of lactic sweetness on the finish. Creamy and balanced. There seems to be some variation on the batches as I have had it several times and noticed minor differences. Some seem sweeter than others, and I have noticed a dry finish on some. Over all, though it is tasty and good!
