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.

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.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 22, 2006
12 oz. Bottle. Black with red highlights. It has a tan head and lacing. Nice roast notes as well as little sour in the nose. Roast, chocolate, as well as a sour bite in the finish. As it warms the roast and chocolate become more pronounced. Nice stout.

TheBeerGod (5164) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 Bottle courtesy of hopdog. Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Nose is roasty and bittersweet with some light lactic notes, bittersweet dark chocolate, light coffee, and some dark fruits. Taste is coffee, roasted malts, big lactic tartness, light melon, hint of raspberry and bittersweet dark chocolate. Body is medium but has some tart sharpness to it and moderate carbonation. Finishes with lots of cocoa, coffee and cream, lactic sour notes, dark chocolate, hint of licorice and melon. Very nice beer! Would like to try the rest of the Duck-Rabbit beers!

Bottled. Chocolate milk with mocha coffee and some roasted grains in there. Creamy but a bit thin. Picked this up while vacationing in NC.

This sweet stout pours a eclipse black color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized very tight white head. Aroma is mild chocolate and vanilla with a touch of coffee. A light to medium bodied sweet stout. Malts are mild chocolate, slightly roasty malts and some coffee flavors. There is a touch of hop bite, but it could be from the roasty malts. A hint of lactic sweetness, which complements the roasty malts very nicely. Very smooth taste, nearly creamy. Perhaps a touch thin, but a very drinkable stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet with a touch of tartness.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Dark brown with red highlights. Aromas of roasted dark malts and caramel. Smooth and creamy, but not too thick for a stout. Tastes of coffee, sweet dark chocolate and a subtle hop bitterness. Pretty good, I’d take this over a latte anyday.

ClarkVV (3891) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Best before 1/2006 bottle from Secret Santa consumed on 12/30/2005. Large mocha colored head, initially, atop a transluscent, deep garnet-burgundy tinged coal brown body. Smells of burnt cocoa, light lactic notes, vanilla syrup-flavored coffee. All quite burly and rich. Only the barest hints of dry, earthy barley peek through on the edges. Flavor is at once a creamy mocha latte, with roasted bitterness on the sides of the palate, attempting to clear the sweet creamy sugars on each sip. The crusty, brown, bready malts add a very crunchy coffee-like feel, but the milky aspect seems a bit overly creamy-sweet. As it warms, very light floral hops emerge, providing a touch of flavor and light bitterness. Still, a touch more balance to this vast sea of cream would be well placed. It is a very creamy texture and a medium-full body, despite the filtration. Low carbonation, with the head slowly receding to a ring. Short finish, though; some roast and cream lingers on. Like the other Duck-rabbits, it tends to the less complex side of the malt spectrum, but is certainly well-made. Retronasal floral hops garner some interest. No alcohol noted.

Smells a little like bannana baby food when you move in. The roasted sour traditional stout is not lost in the lactose and the sweetness makes it a perfect companion to an aged Irish cheddar cheese. Drink it slow over conversation with your kids... it will help you survive. Go Duck_Rabbit.

Very burnt flavor to this beer, not "roasted". Sickly-sweet lactose, medium/heavy bodied. Not very good.
