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.

Bottle to snifter (shared by jmborggren). Looks good; cola with thin white beige lacing. Smells and tastes solid; dark malt, bitter hops, and roast. Decent on the palate. Enjoyable.

JDBaker11058 (1999) - Maryland, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Appearance: silky near-black pour, with half a finger of medium tan head and decent lacing. Aroma: surprisingly strong note of chocolate, balanced by pine, resin, and citrus. Taste: bitter dark chocolate, with strong hop notes (pine, grapefruit, and mint). Finish: dry and bitter, with lingering coffee roast and resin. Notes: Silky and drinkable palate, roasty, with full hoppy bitterness. Feels like an extremely hoppy porter, but I feel that way about the style in general. Decent.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2013
12oz bottle: pours a mostly opaque with a creamy froth of beige head. Has a lightly sweet toasted dark malty nose with lots of resiny piny hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and fine carbonation with sweet dark malts and some light roast, well-balanced with crisp hop flavor and bitterness. Finishes drier and bittersweet. True to style and dangerously drinkable.

keepersj12 (3070) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Intense aroma of pine, citrus, fruit, chocolate, coffee from a dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. The flavor is mostly dark chocolate and coffee with a nice balance of hops on the back of the sip. Quite complex and evolving as the beer warms. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great overall beer. Dark almost black appearance. Flavor is roasty and toasty with a nice touch of hop. Could drink this one all night. Well at least until the keg kicks!

Braudog (6454) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Pitch black, just a bit of sticky head. Drinks with a gritty, dark chocolate essence up front. Theres a tease of some hoppiness but not enough to warrant the moniker IMHO. Id call this a sturdy porter and move on. (#5023, 5/14/2013)

chinchill (4440) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Served by a brewery rep. at the 2012 NC Brewers Fest. {from notes} A: pours near black with a lasting brown head. The head is creamy and coats the glass on the way down. S Hops plus dark malt. Some spice and pine. T: An excellent and flavorful mix of hops and dark malt -- a generous and well-proportioned mix of both. M: Creamy smooth full body is more substantial than might be expected. Semi-dry finish. O: excellent and highly drinkable.

Dogbrick (11879) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2013
On draught at The Taphouse in Hampton. Pours a deep black color with a medium thick and foamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops, citrus and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, toasted malt and citrus. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

Tap. Pours opaque black with a small brown head and perfect lacing. Aroma is really roasty, with notes of pine and citrus as well. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet, light bitter, quite roasted. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel. Nice beer.
