The Duck-Rabbit Hoppy Bunny American Black Ale is both intensely hoppy and intensely BLACK! Eight separate hop additions offer delicious bitterness and beguiling hop aroma/flavor. Heavily represented among these hops are Chinook, which provides deep pine and sticky citrus components and a New Zealand hop called Motueka, from which we get bright fruit and spearmint notes.

scotchzombie (578) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours nearly black - we'll call it black - with a moderately-sized but rich and foamy light tan head. Lots of lacing. Looks like a stout. Aroma is a nice blend of piney hop and chocolate malt. Kind of like roasted hops. Very inviting. The taste amps up these flavors and contrasts. This is like a porter + an IPA (bit more porter). Some astringent citrus and hops and a deep bed of dark roasted coffee malts with a foundational bitterness that seems to come from hops and roasting. Diverse flavors but the balance is off. One of the better black IPA's I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to glass. About 4 months past enjoy by date. Pours a decidedly black color with a frothy light brown head. Aroma is mostly roasted malts and light burnt coffee bitterness, no hops whatsoever. Hops a bit more apparent in the taste. Lighter in body, perfect for this style. Lingering burnt malt bitterness in the finish. Solid beer, but wish I would have had it fresh to enjoy the true hop character.

Amazing! This coffee tan head and a beautiful black color to it, at first look Id its an oatmeal stout. Smooth citrus bite and a toasty finish.

Deep, dark appearance. Tan, lace head, excellent retention. Roast smell, slightly weak hops dont come through. Taste is thick, creamy. Hop in flavor, strong mouthfeel.

ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2013
FROM NOTES: August 23, 12. From a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip. A: Big citrus and pine hop notes. Orange and pineapple are strongest aromas with some faint papaya in there as well. Mild roastiness with notes of molasses and caramel. A: Pours a deep, dark black with a fluffy nearly two-finger head that faded to leave a TON of sticky side lacing. T: Follows the nose with black malt and a strong grapefruit/pine hoppiness and an earthy flavor. Astringent roasted malt flavor, some mild dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee notes. P: Medium body with moderate carbonation. O: Prototypical black IPA, nothing super special about this one but it is a fine beer all the same.

AdamT (268) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bought at Winslows on 09/30/13. Creamy light-brown mostly diminishing head, virtually no lacing. Muddy body with a black hue. Bitter moderate orange/citrus hop up front, short bitter orange finish. Full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation and light alcohol feel. I thought I may have noticed some charcoal/smoke taste in this beer. I had a hard time recognizing everything that was going on with this beer.

radio_nowhere (1472) - Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 Draft at Harrikas in Cedar Point, NC. Served in a plastic pint cup, very dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, licorice, light coffee and chocolate with fruity hops. First taste hit is the hops, citrus/piney, followed by the roast notes that are more heavy then the nose. Medium body, medium carbonation, bitter, roast-y with lingering obvious bitter roast-y finish. A pleasing black IPA.

First impressions are misleading, taste-wise... seemed too bitter, but the more you taste the better it gets. Nice black color and thick head.
