A: Pours a clear but almost opaque dark reddish brown in color with some significant garnet red highlights and moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dark beige head that quickly reduces to a couple of small and medium sized thin patch of bubbles with a very thin film covering the majority of the surface and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of roasted chocolate malts, a touch of caramel, and some chocolate with light amounts of earthy and grassy hops.
T: Moderate flavors of roasted chocolate malts with some notes of bittersweet chocolate and caramel but very little sweetness upfront. In the middle there are moderate to strong notes of coffee. Finally there are some light amounts of earthy and grassy hops but very light amounts of bitterness which fades rather quickly.
M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amount of carbonation. Slightly prickly with a touch of dryness in the finish.
O: Very easy to drink and quite enjoyable - I really enjoy the coffee flavors from the roasting that sneak into the middle of the taste. Alcohol is well hidden and I could easily put a few of these down in a session.

Pours a hazy, reddish hazelnut brown with three fingers of puffy beige head that clumpily settles to one finger or so. Good retention; spider web-like lacing.
Rich, dark malt with yeasty esters. Dark fruits, nuts, leather, and some other woody kind of hop smells.
Dry and earthy-tasting. Lots of floral hops up front with some mellowing bready malt tastes at the finish.
Thin and dry with a tingly hop character and a warm finish.
Okay take on a brown.
This is a beautiful-looking, different-smelling, hoppy-and-dry-tasting, thin-feeling beer and although I may be being hard on it it was not bad. It is not what I was expecting by any stretch of the imagination, but it was not a terrible beer. A very aromatic beer that is hoppier and drier than I usually anticipate with a brown.
Might have again; if you want to try it, who am I to stop you?

Pretty nice brown ale - one of Duck-Rabbit's lighter beers I've had.
Real-ale-like loose foam at the start, drops to nothing... liquid looks flat, burgundy, with a slight glow... Mostly fruity hops and higher alcohols on the nose - vibrant yet fairly mellow.... fairly potent nuance of caramel cuts through its bold blend of sweetish, bread-crusty malt, soft floral/melon hop flavor and bitterness, and tonic, warm rush of booze.... as round a mouthfeel as they come without any residual viscosity - surprisingly light on palate.
Overall, it has a pleasant, bold, malty flavor with a nice, soft balance with the hops/alcohol. Taste-wise, I could have a couple in a sitting, but it's more of a one-a-day beer.

The beer foamed when I poured from the bottle to my glass. The head was dense and took a long time to receed. The color is a brown, and the beer has a slight opacity to it. I could smell hops, but only faintly and nothing else. I tasted more hops than I expected, but then again this is an American Brown and not an English Brown. There was roasted malt to balance the hops. No alcohol burn, which was what I expected.
