Nice opaque stout but absolutely no head, roasted malt aroma with a touch of lactic acid evident, tin mouth feel for a stout, light roasted flavor like a weak cup of morning blend coffee, a very minute amount of sweetness in the finish but not enough to really call this a Milk Stout. You cold easily drink several of these in 1 sitting.The Duck Rabbit Porter is a much better brew than this. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - FEB 21, 2007
On draft at Union Jack’s in Knoxville, TN. Pours a nice black color with minimal head. Chocolaty aroma, with a hint of hops and roasted coffee. Started out a little bitter, but mellowed off. Sweet. Was hoping for it to be creamier, but still not too bad. TheKegergator (241) - California, USA - FEB 16, 2007
Pretty good brew. nothing bad with it, just a simple stout. Could have been beetr on the nose and look. asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Bottle thanks to DrBayern! Pours a very dark brown color with a nice tan head on top. Aroma is full of chocolate and coffee with hints of hops, milk sugar, cream, and roasted malts. Flavor is sweet chocolate and milk sugars at first followed up by bitter and bold coffee. A very drinkable sweet stout. I sometimes think about how easily obtainable Duck-Rabbit beers would be for me if I was still in TN. Beffrey2 (36) - Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina, USA - FEB 3, 2007
(Bottle) while in my mouth, has a strange taste I cannot put my finger on. But the after taste it leaves is great! It is malty and chocolaty. The color is a dark brown. Overall, not a bad beer at all.

Thanks to Scubatrip for the bottle. Pours brown/black with a huge head. Good retention, spare lacing. Aroma it bitter coffee, perfumy hops and toasted malts. Tastes much sweeter than it smells. Not quite creamy texture. Sweet finish. Needs some fine-tuning. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Bottle and served in Unibroue tulip: Deep brown hue with a fading frothy tan head and left some lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, earthy coffee, hint of milk lactose, some plum and prune, vapour of hazelnut, and a moderate dusty yeast ester. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 20, 2007
The taste starts with the expected chocolate malty sweetness supported by a lactic twang and a light coffee bitterness. I found a yeasty chalky and earthy finish with some fruity sub notes. The mouth feel is not as creamy has hoped but worked within the framework of the brew (A little addition of oats would help this brew methinks). A solid stout and quite enjoyable, try some.
NorCal tasting Jan 07 - Number 4 of the 5 Duck-Rabbit beers I brought to the tasting. This beer, along with their regular Porter were probably my least favorite beer they make. With that being said, this was still a nice beer. Aroma of toffee, some caramel notes along with toasted grains and maybe some cocoa. Flavors were along the same lines as the nose but it was powered by the lactic sweetness. Thankfully, it wasn’t overly sweet. T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Poured from a bottle. Nice appearance of black color with a small head. Had a sweet taste to it, with roasted malt and chocalate also. Really enjoyed this stout. wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2007
