4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I’ve had this one before, but never on tap. I went with my wife to the Hard Times Cafe in Woodbridge, VA and this was the last beer of my session:
Ap: Pours almost totally black, with slight hints of light shining through as the session progressed. It had about 1/6 inch of head and the carbonation was undetectable, due to the dark color of the beverage.
Ar: Roasted grains and coffee, but definitely not Maxwell House...something more gourmet.
T: Great balance. The detectable lactose smooths out the coffee, adding sweetness, body, and thick texture. I tasted this right after the pour in which the beer may be colder than craft beer drinkers like it to be. This stout (and milk stouts in general) actually taste good that way - sort like a milkshake.
P: I already mentioned thick texture, but perhaps a better word would be creamy.
O: If I’m really in the mood for stouts and this one is available, I could drink this all day. This is the best beer in Duck Rabbit’s standard lineup.

Aroma of charred wood and bread. Smooth mouth feel rich smoky bread and toffee, with a sweet acidic finish. Dark color with an off white head that dissipates quickly.

Tasted at Hops ’n Crafts in Nashville, TN. It was from a Firkin at room temp, very smooth and creamy. The lactose sweetness is very present. Overall a pleasurable experience. Kudos to Hops ’n Crafts to bring this beer to Nashville!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Big puffy head that takes some time to settle. Nice aroma of chocolate, roasted grains. Taste is sweet malt, some toasted grain and some hints of chocolate. Ends sweet. Palate is surprisingly thin. Simple and rather plain. For what is there it is good but I’d look for some more complexity.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 7/20
Showcasing all the right aromas and flavors but in unbalanced proportions. Unpleasant foamy feel in the mouth and somewhat sour in the mid-section. Not great.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours black with a thick creamy tan head that leaves almost no lacing on the glass as it dissipates quickly. Aroma is strong yet sweet with dark cocoa. Mild carbonation in the mouth with notes of burnt sugar and extreme roasted malt. This is another poor tasting beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Un stout pas très torréfié qui se laisse gagner par des courants lactés, chocolatés. Le corps est martelé d’une effervescence soutenue qui alège le poid que les sucres auraient aimés exercer. Menthe et mélasse sont également perceptibles.
