Jet black with a medium, dark head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, caramel. Taste the same. Very smooth, not sweet but full-bodied and malty. A darn good stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into english pint galss. Dark brown color with a tight creamy head. The aroma was rich and roasty with a slight phenolic twang. The malty notes sort of reminded me of a malted milk ball. It was medium bodied. Not bad, but I guess I expected more.

Thanks to Book_M_Dano for this, my first Duck Rabbit. Pours dark walnut/chestnut color. No head on the pour. Creamy milk chocolate aroma with some kind of coarse hints underneath. Some coco powder. There is a milk chocolate flavor to this as well as some coco powder. Those are really the dominant flavors (even more than the hints of roasted malt). One dimensional but that is OK. Lightly creamy and lightly slick mouth feel. Medium body. Not bad.

very sweet and smokey aroma. like milk chocolate on oak chips. a little molasses taste in the background, alongwith the milk chocolate flavor and the woody-grain flavors. a little bitterness, but not mouth puckering. a decent every day brew, but nothin too crazy. Thanks shagtastic

The roasted malt ,with it’s burnt and smoky components, caramel. molasses, and dark chocolate, are tasty enough, but there is an overbearing sourness that creeps into the bitter finish that really creeps me out. That astringent sourness really detracted from an otherwise likable stout.

the color is as brown as you can get before you actually become black. I think it has kind of a smoked chocolate aroma to it. Nice smooth smoked milk chocolate body to it. Respect to shag who scored this fine brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black with blood red highlights and a small, tan head that settles to an oily film. Aroma is mainly dark, semi-sweet and baker’s chocolates with burnt malt & alcohol. Not as full-bodied as I’d hoped. Malts are heavy and well-roasted with a finish that is bitter and sour. Could have used a touch of sweetness to pick this up from drudgery. The potential is there, but...

12oz bottles acquired in trades with Suttree & Johnathan3564 (thanks!). Poured a dark brown with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, and lactose. Tastes of lactose, chocolate, roasted malts, some dark fruits and ended in a light coffee bitter finish. A decent tasting stout.

A pitch black appearance with a moderate beige head. The aroma is chocolate milk and raisins. The flavor juggles being bitter and sour oddly enough. I taste dark chocolate, raisins, whipped cream, and roasted coffee. A creamy and slighty bitter mouthfeel. Pretty good stuff. And this doesnt contain the hops of the rabbit but instead the roasting of the duck. Boooo! Get off the stage......tomatoes

Silky black color with an umber edge. Fading tan head. Sweet dark chocolate, and roasted malt aromas, rather plain and all to familiar. Smooth and luscious feel. Mild tar and heavy cola flavors. Hints of butane. I don’t catch much in the form of lactose. Some charcoal and coffee in the finish. Lots of flavor in this one, a touch too strong with a roasted malts at time. Still and nice stout. Thanks Jonathan.
