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.

Bottled. Beer is very dark ash brown with a small, frothy, beige, mostly and rapidly diminishing head.<P> The aroma is sweet and again, best word for it is luxe. Malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, light-to-moderate notes of caramel, light molasses, cookie; Hoppy with a light note of resin/pine, trace of tarragon; Yeasty with a light note of dank basement; Light miscellaneous notes of green apple peel, oaky vanilla, burbon, moderate creamy milk note glosses the whole ball of wax.<P> The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, light-to-moderately acidic with a longer-than-average lightly bittersweet finish.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.

Excellent milk stout. Good balance between bitter and sweet. It has that nice, distictive lactic character. Definitely worth a try.

Being lactose-intollerant, I must say that this beer is a forbidden fruit which makes me like it more. That made no sense. Looks good, smells good, tastes good.

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.

(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 (7133) - 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!

Ernest (6729) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Bottle, BB 11/06. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate milk, roasted grain, molasses), trace hops (resin), with notes of berries, minerals, vanilla, leather, ashes. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Quite delightful for the style, even though it’s not one I can get excited about (one of my least favorite stout substyles). Very intriguing nose and a pleasant mouthfeel.
