COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbit Baltic Porter is deep, rich and velvety soft. A full blooded roasty character is balanced by complex alcohol notes. Strong (9% alcohol by volume) yet unfailingly subtle, this special brew warrants sipping and savoring.

One of my bigger wants for a while and I was happy to get it as an extra in a trade. Glad I’m getting a chance to try this now. Best by 12-12 bottle served in a snifter. Ink black pour with a short lived light brown head. Aroma is soy sauce and white glue. Taste is vicious like a merlot, with cola and cold coffee. Thin in the mouth with a drying finish. Acidic. I’m sure this bottle sat too long and probably under suboptimal conditions. Would,like to,try a fresher one.

Gerbeer (3266) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2016
355 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with moderate tan head that settles quickly. Aromas of dark molasses, sugary dark fruit, and sweet roasted malts. Rich flavors of nutty dark chocolate with raisins, oily molasses, vanilla, black coffee, and roasted malts. Rich and oily. Good stuff.

bulldogops (2321) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2016
Rating #2260 - 2015.12.16 - Beer #16 in the 2015 Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. Pours a Tarheel black with a weak bubbly tan foam. Aroma is heavy roast malt,lots of coffee, chocolate, and espresso. Taste is mild bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character, lots of black forest cake, espresso, cocoa flavours and smokiness on the palate in the finish. Unreal brew.

hayduke (4980) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Sample at the esbls. In my tasting glass this was jet black with a tan head. Nose is licorice, dark ripe fruit, and rich caramel malts. Full in body with a rich creamy mouth feel. Flavor is really rich with the anise, plums, raisins, molasses, and chocolate all mingled tougher for a delightful taste. Finish is bittersweet. and the alcohol is well hidden. A great baltic porter and simply a great beer.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 600 rating! 355ml bottle from Denman Liquor store. Tasting with Jamey. Aroma is some spices, smoky notes, chocolate, roasted seeds, oily, leather. Taste is dark fruits, oily, roasted malt, chocolate notes. Roasted malt, leather, dark fruits, smoky aftertaste. Very good balanced beer, in which you can’t find 9 ABV at all.

BillWyce (1027) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Pours opaque cola-brown with a 2-finger tan head. Aroma of coffee with a bit of char. Maybe some caramel too. Medium body, a bit oily. Finish is mild, with a touch of astringency. Coffee flavor with a bit of char to it. A sweet note underneath, maybe toffee.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Bee in Pooler, GA. The appearance is black with a small tan head. The aroma is coffee with some cocoa. A really good porter.

tillmac62 (688) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2016
BBD 2016. Pours black. Normal head volume, poor lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of light roast, dark chocolate, raisins with plum notes, caramel and light molasses with a bit of caramel. Light full bodied with a smooth texture that has a bit of creaminess. Slightly below normal carbonation level and is a bit low for the body. Light effervescence in the middle and prickly in the finish. The flavor profile is quite outstanding. The 9% ABV is very well covered by the rich complex flavors. All the flavors of the nose appear, but mostly in blended fashion. Sweet molasses and caramel form the base with roast on the top. Bitterness is a hint in the middle and mostly roast based. The finish is a slow sweet fade with notes of chocolate, raisin and plum.

Wow, this beer shoots for and nearly achieves greatness. A phenomenally superior Baltic Porter, with an excellent coffee and sweet tobacco leaf aroma, nice ruby-brown-black appearance, but with a rather minimal head, looks very flat. The flavor profile is perfect, slightly charred roasted malt, predominantly still sweet and warm maltiness, as a porter ought to be. Some dark fruit notes and an alcohol sweetness, but no boozy tartness, very well done. Indeed very smooth and pleasant texture, with minimal carbonation. My only dissatisfaction that keeps me from going a full 4/5 stars with this beer is its lack of body, personally I would much prefer some additional foam and texture. Still delicious and I will definitely drink again.

Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Rich dark fruit and roasty coffee aroma. Great rich taste of dark fruits, leather, a little roasty. Clean fruity finish with no booze. Tasty.

Une robe brune sur laquelle flotte un anneau de mousse. Au nez, voilà une richesse fruitée liquoreuse dans une mélasse imbibée de réglisse et touchée par une fumée de cigare. Au goût, la mélasse est dominante, teintée par des malts bien tournés, accaparée par des saveurs de fudge aux noix et découpée par des fruits noirs qui ont bien vieillies. En bouche, j’ai l’impression d’un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modéré à bas et une texture crémeuse. La finale est très mélasse noire, mi-amère ou mi-sucrée, assez forte pour lui mais conçue pour elle. Bon liquide qui n’est pas beau mais qui fait le travail qu’il doit faire. Efficace.
