Brewgrass 2012 - pours black cherry into the glass with a wispy head. The nose is of sours, silage, spent grains and yeasty esters. The mouth is an interesting combination of both sours and sweet malty caramel. Barnyard accents dominate the pull. A nice round mouthfeel piques the palate. Very nice Duck-Rabbit offering here, full and complex, active and quaffable. Prost! scooter520 (185) - - SEP 14, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: murky chestnut brownish red with tan head. Aroma: caramel, molasses, prunes, maybe touch of banana? Taste: same as aroma with a slightly drying bitter finish. Mouthfeel: medium thick creamy with medium carbonation. Overall: this is a very good doppelbock that fits the style and I like that dry bitter finish that's a little different.

The chestnut colored body clear, and the beige head was fed by gentle carbonation. The smell was ripe with figs, dates, cherries, and dark raisins. The taste was not as sweet as I had anticipated. The malts appeared to be well roasted, giving a bitter coffee effect at first sip. This was followed by a fruity tartness, semi-sweet powdered cocoa, and a woody, dry finish. This was a surprisingly complex juxtaposition of flavors for the style. The body was not as silky smooth as the best examples of the style. Quite a different experience from others of this style.

Thick and full-bodied. There is a multitude of flavors in this beer. These include milk chocolate, caramel, cherries, roasted nuts, and a hint of vanilla.

Duck-Rabbator pours a medium red brown hazy liquid with a nice head of beige small bubbles. Nose is sweet dark cocoa and just a hint of hops. Body is smooth and lightly carbonated. Flavor is nice dark chocolate bitters that warm mid taste and fade into excellent dark chocolate on finish. awesome beer.

Appearance: Pours a dark maroon with red hint opaque with light white head - really very pretty.
Aroma: Nice aroma of bready malt with caramel and some hint of fruit.
Taste: Similar to aroma, malty, bready, faint caramel, faint fruit.
Palate:Amazingly light but not in a bad way, light aftertaste, covers alcohol well.
Summary: My third rating from Duck Rabbit, what can i say - I want more. Really impressed with the appearance and palate, and the aroma/taste aren’t bad either. Good stuff.
Beautiful clear crimson color. A slight astringency on the aroma with a hint of cocoa nib. Very smooth, lactic mouthfeel with a mellow chocolate flavor and a slight bitterness on the finish. A nice fall feel--good for cooler weather. Radek Kliber (7316) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 16, 2012

12 oz bottle from my neighbor Bob - thanks! Rich coffee flavoring and a heavy dose of molasses are immediate. Long lasting taste sorta lingers on the mouth feel and just plain pleasant throughout. Watch out for the 8.5 ABV which can drop you after three or four quick ones.
