COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Bottle from ’08ish. Pours black, frothy chocolate head. Chocolate roast nose. Milde caramel, sweet sugar, chocolate and lots of truit. Raisin. Solid, but missing something in the middle.

Pours a very dark brown with a gigantic, foamy head - the foam was spilling out of the sides of my glass! Deep and rich, with fruit and spice notes. Very bitter.

Pours a dark brown. The aroma of coffee and celery it hasn’t held up well. Some soy and alcohol

bhensonb (10689) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle from mixmasterob. Pours quite black/brown with a rapidly disappearing dark tan head. Aroma is treacle with something suggesting anise (but turns out to be coffee!). Med + body. Flavor is very dark malt with treacle and a flavor that is very coffee. No chocolate. Very good.

marcus (6300) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours black with a nice tan head that unfortunately went away, and a heavy treacle and alcohol aroma. There is a hearty dark molasses and coffee flavor with a dry finish. Very delicious.

PhillyCraft (3069) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle split with Pat at his house. Poured a deep black color with small to medium beige head/lace. Aromas were bitter cocoa, vanilla, sweet malts, and toast. Taste roasted and smokey malts, tons of chocolate, and some bitter ashy grains. 10% was pretty easy going also. Nice.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2012
2010 bottle, thinner than expected overall. Pours unclear coffee dark in color with a beige smaller head. The aroma is lighter than wanted at room temperature, but still brings pleasant roasted sweet malts with some pleasant vanilla notes. The flavor is sweet creamy malts that end lightly on the tongue desiring more. The body is still pretty solid, but not big by any means.

mcberko (5915) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2012
12 oz. bottle, sent from cory_king (thanks Cory), pours jet black with ay small tan head. Aroma is fairly subdued for an imp, with tar, charcoal, some roast, and bitter chocolate. Flavour is full of tar, coal, medium roasted malt, a touch of coffee, some bittersweet dark chocolate, and I can’t help but get some reminiscence of Islay whiskey, though I know this is non-BA. Very sludgy, coal-like body, without too much sweetness. Very standard, but well-executed by-the-books imperial stout, with a tad bit too much of that Islay character to make this more enjoyable to me. Solid stuff.

jandd1983 (2405) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured a black color with a small tan head. The aroma was of malt and some dried fruit. The taste was heavy malt, slightly sweet with a burnt malt aftertaste. Good stuff.

12oz bottle thanks to mikem409 in the locals swap. This was on my wants list. I had it at GABF last year and wanted more. Thanks
Appearance: Pours black with a medium sized brown head and some lacing
Aroma: Roasted malts, roast coffee and dark fruit
Taste: Roasted malts, dark chocolate with a metallic bitterness in the finish
A nice solid Imp stout, not as good as I remembered it being but nice anyways.
