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.

Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen for sending. Pours a deep reddish black appearance with a thin brown head. The aroma is a little ashy, some dark chocolate, light coffee, earth, and a little bit of milk sugar. Moderate plus sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Fairly well balanced. Burnt ashy woody flavor. Some coconut milk, earthy coffee. Fine.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2015 Beer it forward project. Bottle poured pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma is quick to the roasted malt, but quickly gives way to raw cacao and then hits with bitter dark chocolate and ends with almost tart unripe fruit note. Flavor is incredibly similar but in reverse finishing with the dark roasted malt and some lactic sweetness. Smooth. Very good stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A complex stout that I found quite pleasing. Flavor is mostly dry, but there’s a subtle sweetness that is not too much. Light-bodied and fresh. Aroma is a balance of roast and fairly strong fruity notes. Fairly creamy texture, but with a slightly edgy finish. Interesting to the last drop, and the type of beer that left me feeling quite good after drinking it too. I have had many good experiences with Duck-Rabbit brews, and this is another to add to that list.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pitch black with a thin fuzzy tan head. Aroma is roast, and chocolate. Taste is roasted malts and thick dark chocolate. There is just a hint of lactic sweetness on the finish. Creamy and balanced. There seems to be some variation on the batches as I have had it several times and noticed minor differences. Some seem sweeter than others, and I have noticed a dry finish on some. Over all, though it is tasty and good!

bottled - dark and roasted chocolate flavor and aroma. Not as sweet as expected, in fact, not sweet at all. Something tasted just a little off.
