Duck Rabbit's porter is black and easy to froth. No light comes through but the body didn't dump heavy enough to show much weight. The foam bubbled up quickly to a couple fingers in height. A tiny, microbubbled head that becomes ultra creamy, ultra fast. Sheet lacing is left behind in layers.

The nose is light, as in not rich or dense, but it has those qualities that huge stouts possess. Dark berries, blackberry and blue, a few underripe adding a slight vegetal note. Soft coffee with a sweetener added and a moderate roast. Deep pulls bring along some black licorice and a touch of alcohol. Unique.

Coffee and cream is first on the palate, a little bigger and bolder than the nose suggested. Macerated berries show themselves mid palate, some underripe, green berries, found their way into the bunch. A touch of anise again on the backend before coffee and cream take over on the swallow. The flavors are there but a little soft.

The body is moderate in weight, perhaps a touch lighter even. Carbonation is spritzy and tingles the tongue on its way through. A touch of roast bitterness gets left behind after each swallow. The lighter body and softer flavor profile make for an immensely easy drinker.

This isn't one of the best porters I have ever had but there are some unique touches and it's damn drinkable. The balance is spot on. I would pick this up occasionally if available in my area, unfortunately it is not.
