COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.

TheEpeeist (3399) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2006
12 oz bottle. Clear ebony with a crema head. Settles to a skin. Nose of sour cream and brown bread. Traces of smoke and licorice. Starts with a nice tang of sour apple. Silky body melts over the tongue leaving cream soda and dark chocolate. Aftertaste like a coffee, regular. Wonderfully drinkable for a stout. Like a cocoa at bedtime.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2006
12 0z bottle via TurdFerguson (thanks!). Pours a near black color with a small tan head. Very nice sweet roasty aroma of toffee, chocolate and mocha. One of the best smelling beers i have sampled. Taste starts out with some sweet molasses then some chocolate and ends with bittersweet smoky salty woody taste that is very nice. I really am enjoying this one. Duck Rabbit is one of the best U.S. breweries i have sampled from.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2006
Pours a dark brown colour with a small tan head. Mocha and grassy aroma. The flavour is coffee and semi-sweet choclate. The sweet milk chocolate taste in your mouth turns slightly drier on the finish. Medium bodied with a decent creamy texture.

CapFlu (4611) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2006
(Bottle) Boozey, roasted coffee nose. Deep almond head with a deep reddish-brown body. Flavour is rich, smooth and thoroughly coffee which is short and a tad thin through the finish.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Springslicker: Pours an opaque black with a thin covering of tan head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate and a touch of caramel with some roasty coffee notes. Body starts a little thinner but has a nice balance between the sweet caramel and chocolate malts and the bitter roasted malt along with a touch of bittering hops. Finishes smooth and enjoyable. I think this would make a great session beer. Thanks Jay!

beerBB (132) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2006
pours almost black with tan head that quickly dissappears. Good roasted malt aroma. very sweet taste with some good roasted maltiness. Very little hop pressense. A little thin...needs a little more body for me.

Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2006
A black beer with a slight brown shine, underneath a brown head. The aroma is very light with hints of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with light notes of both roasted malt and chocolate, leading to an end with a dry chocolate note. The body is a bit thin inspite of the 5.7% ABV.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Dark, reddish-brown body with no head. It looks more like cola in the glass than a beer. The aroma is pretty pungent and unpleasant. It is thick with musty malts, and maybe some cocoa in there too. This has a strange, sticky, maple syrup flavor and a sticky mouthfeel.

notalush (4992) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle from ross - pours a very dark brown with no head to speak of - spent coffee grounds and burnt grains in the aroma, along with some earthy/woody notes and some caramel/toffee - lactose is very apparent, but a little too much is used to try and balance the roasted grains, making the beer a little cloying - thin mouthfeel - tastes like old coffee with too much sugar in it - not all that good.
