i had this immediately after a black tuesday, so my review may be skewed negatively in the shadow of one of the best stouts ever made, but this one didnt really do much for me. it has a couple years on it i think, and may not have aged as gracefully as originally anticipated. the pour is very dark, but oddly thin, not a lot of body on it by the way it looks. the nose and taste are both a little oxidized. we all agree that we smell and taste green olives, its briny and strange. there is a nice bitter roasty malt to this, and a warming alcohol strength, but the flavors in the middle are either aged away or not very dynamic. it drinks really heave for having a body on the lighter side, and the booze comes out a lot when its at room temperature. i will have to get a fresh bottle and revisit this another time, and it had a lot of variables working against it this time around. still, unimpressed by my first duck rabbit experience.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a small goblet, color is black, solid, head is tan, very thick, almost 2 inches, nice lacing and presentation.

Smell is a little boozy upfront, then some good roast, light chocolate, hints of fruit and maybe some bourbon like flavor, light earth hop presence.

Taste more malt upfront than the aroma, blend of roast, chocolate, hints of fruit, raisin, plum, alcohol is noted in the taste on the backend; lingering flavors are roast, fruit and booze. There is some chalkiness or added quality that is hard to pin point.

Mouthfeel is pleasant, for a beer this strength, nice full flavor and presence, feels full on the tongue, nice lingering presence.

Overall, I like this brew, pretty good taste and presence, nice booziness, there is a lingering taste that I can't pin point that seems to take away slightly.

12oz. bottle: This one poured a dark, opaque brown color. Somewhat "inky". There was a small dark tan head and no lacing. Definitely some alcohol to the nose. Lots of other aroma: chocolate, roastiness, dark fruits, yet a bit subdued. Nothing really jumping to the forefront. The taste is good and a bit interesting. A lot of flavors coming together, but nothing really asserting itself. Faint dark fruits, chocolate, a hint of roastiness. No real sweetness to it. Interesting.

So I opened a bottle with 2011 labeled, and let it warm for a while.. then proceeded to sip.. the first touch on my tongue was extreme bitterness. After another small light sip, I realized this was definitely infected.. probably the sourest nasty thing I have ever tried. Too bad, cause I hoped for a better stout like the other reviewers. It was an extra, so maybe figures it was infected.. too bad they couldn't bottle condition. Not much more to say.. again, this was a 2011 labeled bottle.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a chalice. Enjoy by year not marked on the label.

A barley wine in stout clothing. This beer has a complex aroma with a bit too much whiskey for me.

A – Reddish black opaque, slightly viscous with a one-finger brown rocky head. A good lasting head.

S – Creamy, dark fruit, sweetness in the form of dark chocolate, slight alcohol, roasted malt, hint of spice.

T – Some whiskey, slight sweetness, roasted malts, moderate bitterness.

MF – Medium-heavy body, some creaminess, minor slickness.
