The Duck-Rabbit’s Imperial Stout is extremely big and robust. This special beer is thick, jet black and oily in texture. Complex flavors of roast malts dominate: bitter chocolate and espresso coffee especially. There is also a very big hop presence both for bittering and for aroma. At 10% alcohol by volume, this brew is made to be sipped and savored!

Pours a very dark brown with a little khaki colored head. Aroma is roasted malt, molasses, dark chocolate and a little almost earthiness. The roasted malt is definitely the main show here. Taste follows the nose with some bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and maybe a little thin for the style but not bad.

eRock_2013 (402) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Enjoyed a fresh bottle of this, which poured a nearly opaque espresso brown/black color, with some tan foamy head. Aroma was an excellent strong heavily roasted malt with coffee and espresso accents. Taste was likewise a sharp burnt malt with charred espresso wood, and a hint of licorice fruit. Perhaps some hop bitterness in the finish. Flavors seemed more thrown together than balanced. Palate was unusually thin, with a slight alcohol bite. Good but still could use some improvement.

thegreenrooster (4001) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 23, 2016
Pour is a complete black with a large tan head. Aroma is a nice char malt with some sugar sweetness. Flavor is a super rich burnt malt with some licorice and a bit of alcohol. Not much of a hop presence with this one. Finish leaves a nice burnt malt on the tongue. For a Russian impy stout this is surprisingly lacking in hops but this does have a super rich roasted/chared mouthfeel.

Decent enough Imperial Stout. Black pour. Was a little thinner than I excepted and a big herbal/anise presence. It did have a nice coffee-chocolate base. Okay.

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Aroma of dark dried fruit and licorice. Big flavor of dark dried fruit, with some big bitterness hiding in the back. Roasty too. Great.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, brown head and nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate covered cherries, piney hops and molasses. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit and herbal hops. Finish is long and dry. It was great to drink it after snow shoveling.
