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.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2006
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Dave, courtesy of blankboy. Black, lots of red hues, medium beige head. Nice sweet chocolate aromas, lightly hopped, with light roast (almost burnt). Huge roasty dry taste. Very long roast linger and bitterness. Creamy, does this make it a milk stout? Very nice.

A deep roasted flavor, delicious. I was pleased to see that they are now carrying this at the local Harris Teater. This is the only brew I have tried from Duck-Rabbit so far, it wonít be the last. If you are into milk stouts you will love this one.

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev & Dave B. -- my bottle courtesy of ross. Pours a very dark ruby-brown with an average size diminishing tan head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate, fruit and nuts. Roasty dry flavour of malt, cocoa, some hops and a mild lactic sweetness. Medium to full bodied. I found this to be a unique Stout, though not great itís still pretty good.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, tupalev and Dave B - blankboyís bottle. Deep almost opaque brown with ruby highlights, large foamy-rocky light brown lasting head. Deep dry roasty aroma, hints of nutshell, molasses sweetness (hint of cola), dusty and somehow of limestone. Taste is very malty - dry cocoa, milk chocolate, dry hops, still dry but a sweet finish. Nice thick creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish - very good, not too milky though.

Oakes (12627) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2006
Near black colour. Aroma is similar to Vietnamese coffee, but with a distinct nuttiness. Full body with a rich roasty character. This lends a fair bit of acrid bitterness that is offset by decadent lactose sweetness. Not entirely traditioanl given its strength (and accompanying relatively hefty body) but it is flavourful and showcases the key ingredients well. Cheers to Suttree for hooking me up with this!

via trade with decatursteveo - Pours black with a big tan head. Aroma is really nice. Roasted malts with a hint of coffee. The flavor is a let down. A light watery coffee flavor. Light to medium body. Decent beer. Thanks Steve.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2006
From the bottle, pours a dark black with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Smells of toffee, caramel, a little bit of chocolate. The taste is not as smooth as I had expected. Acidic, some bitter hoppiness, some fruity tastes, and a bit of chocolate not unlike a porter. Really tastes more like an imperial stout than the creamy, milky milk stout I expected. This only gets a "meh" from me.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 25, 2006
Semi-dark cola-like pour. Creamy light tan head. Aroma has roasted lactic laced malts, sour lactic edge. TasteÖ. Quite the same, but with an added fruit component and creamy, but fizzy texture. Almost like sweet creamy milk chocolate added to roasty coffee. Sweetness more or less dominates the roasty bitter aspects, and the flavors are good, but donít come together great.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2006
Red/black color with a medium lasting head. Aroma is sweet and roasty with some chocolate sneaking through. Flavor is also sweet with roasted grains and chocolate, but with a strange tartness in the finish. Not unplesant, just didnít seem to fit in with the other flavors. Overall not a bad beer, somewhat light in body but plesant to drink.

acertain (249) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2006
Nice and black, though the head was a little thin. More like dish soap bubbles than a great beer head. Aroma is mostly coffee, with hints of chocolate and some other sweet smell that was familiar but unidentifiable to both my wife and me. In the mouth, itís coffee, dark roasted, with a hint of the lactose sweetness poking through. Malty, though with enough hops to balance. A little thin. Right up there with dragonstooth as one of my favorite (non-imperial) stouts.
