COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Very dark in color. This robust porter features a pronounced flavor of roasted grains reminiscent of dark chocolate. Also, Paul and Brandon add oats to the grist to give a subtle round silkiness to the mouthfeel.

joeneugs (3108) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
12 oz. bottle. It pours dark brown with a khaki head. The aroma is roasted malt with some dark fruit prunes, raisins, hints of coffee. The flavor is pretty dark fruity with some strong roast coming through in the back end. Not too sweet. Pretty dry actually, just lots of dark fruit before the roasted finish. Not your usual porter. I enjoyed it mildly.

Black, off white bubbly head that dissipated quickly to rim around glass, bit of lacing
Aroma - roasted malts, dark malts, chocolate, rich dark malts, bit of sweetness
Taste as aroma, some light earthy malts, soft roast, molasses
Palate - medum carb, thin to medium body. Finish as main flavour
Overall - Quite a decent porter, fairly mellow. I just wasn’t all that excited by it .

Yorker (1091) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2012
35 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark brown with a tiny off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and a little coffee. Flavour is very smooth with notes of roasted malt, oats, and chocolate.

sic1314 (3051) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2012
Ruby red to brown in colour with a large brown head that quickly diminishes. Slight aroma of chocolate malt and a trace of coffee. Medium bodied with no real carbonation. Taste of coffee and minor notes of chocolate. Quite smooth with very little aftertaste. Disappointing.

Panzuriel (1283) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Twelve ounce bottle from NC. Duck Rabbit Porter pours a deep black brown opaque glass with a thick head of small bubbles that quickly disappear. Nose is deep roasted coffee with a hint of caramelized molasses.Taste is just a hint of sweet caramel/molasses on the tongue that fades quickly. body is noticably thin and the taste is gone quickly, but after the swallow there is a good finish with warming coffee bitters. interesting beer.

keanex (1379) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Best before August of 2012.

A: Almost completely opaque garnet body with only the tiniest light showing through the light, a thin tan head sits on top.

S: Strong aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and dark fruits with the fruits coming through really strong.

T: Very slight roasted malts, but a huge flavor of dark fruits and a bitter dark chocolate finish and aftertaste. The fruit flavor is too overpowering to fully enjoy this giving a tarty flavor.

M: Medium bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation.

O: This is probably the worst porter I’ve ever had, why is there so much fruit flavor and aroma in this? It’s as if Welch’s made a porter.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
From a bottle at home (drank Feb ’12) . Pours a rich black colour with a good finger of thick beige head which soon begins to subside reducing to half a finger within a couple of minutes. The aroma was of roasted malts, caramel and brown sugar. Not a ’big’ smell to this beer. The taste was more of a let down than the smell! A little smokey tasting, roasted malts and little caramel in the background, pretty much mimicking the smell but weaker in actual flavour! A slightly sweet and dry aftertaste. I didn’t enjoy the mouthfeel at all. Prickly carbonation and far too much carbonation also too watery. Overall a disappointing porter that got worse as the journey progressed. It looks good, but that’s as good as it gets! Way too watery and too highly carbonated. Will not go near this again!

RABinCO (1144) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with a cream-colored head. Aroma is roast, chocolate, coffee. Taste is the same but with a bit of smoked wood and a bit of mineral. Not a perfect porter, but pretty damn near it.
