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.

Smells of chocolate. Very smooth to drink. Initial sip is strong but then mellows into a nice chocolatey taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cazort (552) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2015
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.

HourGlass13 (182) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2015
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!

raymow (915) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2015
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.

Bottle at home. Dark brown - black pour. Huge fluffy head. Aroma is sweet iced coffee, deep roasted malt, light smoke. Medium bodied and above average carbonation. Rich and sweet, with plenty of char, coffee, and a dry, smoky finish. Pair it with some Texas style BBQ.

N3lson1 (310) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Drank from a pint glass at the Beerhive in Pittsburgh. Pours jetblack with a nice dark brown head. This beer tasted watered-down and too hoppy for a stout. I wouldn’t order this one again.
