UPDATED: AUG 2, 2023 Pours an almost opaque black with a big bubble beige head that laces. Aroma toasted malt with a hint of unsweetened chocolate, coffee. Bitterness is moderate. Body is thin-medium. Aftertaste is dry. 12 oz undated bottle An Original Craft Beer Club August 2023 selection WildMild (43) - Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2022 Long lasting tan head. Aroma of dark malts, very nice.
Flavor - malty-chocolates at first, finished by a black patent-like malt flavor, which is almost smoky or licorice like. Bitterness is moderate and pleasant. Aftertaste is bitter and malty at the same time. Light hop flavor in the aftertaste.
Creamy mouthfeel with light prickly bubbles on the tongue.
Seemed almost like a porter, I didn’t pick up a lot of dark Munich malt. troopie (5083) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2021

Bottle. What a wonderful beer. The best one from Duck-Rabbit. Deep almost black in color with a pleasant roasted nature. JaBier (13824) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2017
Bottle. Pours darkest brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, crisp lager yeast, chocolate and roast. Malt and chocolate flavor with lager yeast and licorice before a roasty coffee finish. VinegarStroke (509) - Napa, California, USA - OCT 23, 2017
Bottle from Tavour: Very dark clear beer. Light head and no lace. The nose is very dark and roasted malt. Clean and rich but too heavily roasted for me. I guess that's on style. The palate is light and fresh but roasted.
I'd like to see more depth and richness on the palate. ABUSEDGOAT (4141) - California, USA - SEP 26, 2017
Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, lightly roasted, caramel, moderate to low hop presence. Medium bodied, definitely more malt based than most dark lagers. Nice. ganache (6754) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Bottle from State Line. Nose heavy dark roast and a little scorch, heavy dark chocolate. Little hints at mineral and plum-raisin. Pour pitch with ruby at the bottom of the glass, head too-large and airy, foamy tan. Taste is nice and gritty hard-bop roast, dark and a little brutal, generally pretty dry but with the incessant foam providing a bit of relieving sweetness. Roast grains and even toasted nuts, subtle mineral and berry, faint plum. Fullish body but not fat or heavy, bitterness mild but accumulates to moderate for the long and pleasantly roasty aftertaste. The only problem here, as is often the case with D-R (still!), overcarbonated airy beers. Wonder if they’re different on tap? [2017.07.09: 3.2]
