COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a traditional German style dark lager beer. Flavors of chocolate or coffee are common, but usually subtle. Just because the beer is dark, doesn’t mean that the flavors are. Expect the beer to be opaque and black, as the name would imply.

LinusStick (3135) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2009
A delicious schwarzbier..probably the best I’ve had. Aroma was good. Dark malt and a hint of coffee. Pour was a perfect dark black with a puffy tan head sitting on top. Taste was like a stout...very strong for a schwarzbier. Dark chocolate and bitter coffee with a thick mouth feel and bitter dry aftertaste. Nice carbonation also.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Compliments of doboy (thanks Ed), poured from 12 oz bottle a black, thin swampy mass. Aroma of milk chocolates, malts, grass and such. Flavour much of the same, exceptioably smooth, robust coffee and lactid acids abound. Nice beer from our friends in eastern NC.

Sampled at GABF. Pours dark with a tan head. Looks nice. Aroma is roasty and smokey, with some hops in there. Flavor is chocolate, smoke, coffee, maybe a bit of nuts. Slick smooth mouthfeel. Great beer.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Pours a deep brown with a bunch of dark amber notes peaking through with a medium creamy/bubbly tan head that left some lacing. Aroma of rich toasted almost roasty malt, mixed toasted nuts, nice hop presence that offers citrusy and floral notes, also getting some coffee and chocolate. Flavor of light roasted coffee, milk chocolate, bready malt notes, hard pretzels, nuts, grains and a nice hop profile with lightly spicy hop notes along with some light citrus.

Bottle picked up in NC. This is one of my favorite Duck-Rabbit beers so far (still looking for that Baltic Porter and cellaring a Rabid Duck). Pours nearly black with a nice-sized tan head and some lacing. Aroma is really roasty with coffee, bitter chocolate, and nuts. Flavor is somewhat dry and roasty with a little sweetness. Coffee, chocolate, grain, and nuts balanced very well. Really tasty schwarzbier. Palate is as it should be, dry and medium-light. A winner from Duck-Rabbit overall.
