COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbits Imperial Stout is extremely big and robust. This special beer is thick, jet black and oily in texture. Complex flavors of roast malts dominate: bitter chocolate and espresso coffee especially. There is also a very big hop presence both for bittering and for aroma. At 10% alcohol by volume, this brew is made to be sipped and savored!

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor. Dark brown, black body with medium, mocha head. Nose is malty, molasses and chocolate. Taste is coffee for sure, with malts and rich dark chocolate. Fizzy, but smooth texture. Warming in the finish. Good stuff.

DocJitsu (1776) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Pours a thick, extremely dark brown with an ample, creamy, burnt meringue colored head. Very dark roast aromas. Cooked grease, olive, alcohol, chocolate, and some fruit. Thick on the palate. Chocolate, coffee, faint cherry, and wood are all noted in the flavors. Some sweetness, but roasted heartiness dominates. Finishes with green olive.

Every now and then you run into that IPS that you label as "Soy-sauce beer". This is one of those occasions. Aroma is soy sauce. Flavor leans towards the sweet side, but offset by some burnt sugar and other dark/bitter chocolate notes. Not the best balance though. Alcohol not hidden that well. Tastes decent, but based on the style it is below average.

Bottle into stout glass. Black w thick head. Strong bold aroma of roast malt w hints of molasses and coffee. Taste has espresso notes and bitter chocolate. Bitter and surprisingly dry given the alcohol. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

monk191 (1856) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 7, 2016
A very nice Russian imperial stout. Pours a beautiful thick black with a brown head. Smells of chocolate, vanilla, coffee and raisins, dark fruit. Taste is thick and creamy, with lots of dark fruit and raisin to start, and bitter chocolate and coffee in the finish. Had in the bottle.

Patrickctenchi (6206) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Bottle: 2008 vintage Oily black....rubied, with a thin, quick, dark tan head. Chocolate-covered cherry aroma. Dark fruit, dark bitter chocolate malt, cola taste. Maybe a little past its prime, Im afraid.....a little oxidation...though still carbonated pretty well....very malty.... A little too far on the dark fruit side for my taste, but good.
