Had at Melton's App and Tap in Decatur. Very, very spot on as far as style goes. A really, really big beer at 10%, and Melton's gives you a PINT of this stuff....incredible.

Very strong coffee notes with a little bitter chocolate in the background. A thinner mouthfeel which is exactly what you would expect from the style.

It's not my favorite style of beer, but I don't grade on what I like, instead on how the brewer fit the style. This IS a Baltic Porter.

(A)When you pour this beer rite "I poured mine in a short tulip glass" it has about a half inch head. It will go away in about 20 seconds though. The beer is a rich black color that does not let light pass through.

(S) It has a crazy good smell that reminds me of strawberries, sassafras, and weak ass coffee.

(T) The taste delights me to no freaking end! It is like a sour beer with powerful notes of strawberry chocolate frappuccino LOL! Freaking incredible and so different! There is also that classic porter taste in the background that chills in your mouth and lets you know your drinking a dark beer. A flavor for the gods I assure you. Dont worry about the higher alcohol level in this beer. It is masked like a jello shot that only warms you once it is in the stomach.

(M) It is silky and wonderfully carbonated like a world class cream soda.

(O) I would buy this beer over and over again. It is one that is best enjoyed with the company of others. I don't normally rate beers; but this one has me wanting to shout reveries of its awesomeness from a mountain! Please try this beer so that you know im not crazy for my outlandish description.

(Served in a dimple mug)
Best before 10/08
thanks to SincereNc for this brew
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a dark tan head full of holes. The head fades to a thick ring and last. The body is too dense to see any sign of carbonation.

S- This beer has a big earthy vinous black roasted malt aroma with a slight sweetness to it. There is a perfume quality to the roasted malt that makes me want to sniff this beer for days.

T- The dark inky taste of black malt has flavors of dark raisins and some burnt notes with a slight sweetness to follow. The finish is a soft vinous flavor followed by a nice roasted bitterness that lingers for a moment.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a slight slippery texture. The finish has a soft astringency of black roasted malt but no real alcohol heat.

D- This beer is delicious with huge black malt flavors while staying smooth and complex aswell.

Poured into a wide-mouth snifter, revealing a touch of cloudy in deep black body under a nice light crema head. Some delicate lacing. Very pretty porter. Smells deliciously sweet and malty with some nice acidity and roasted notes. I wish more porters could smell like this.

Tastes pretty much as amazing as it smells. Sweet with a touch of burnt caramel, vanilla and some nice earthy roasted undertones over a smooth watery finish. I concede that I've been out of country for a few weeks without access to craft brews, but this may be the tastiest porter I've ever had. Mouthfeel is silky light with just enough carbonation to tickle the tongue. Body is almost medium in thickness, but the smoothness masks it well. A slightly prominent acidity makes each sip palate-cleansing for the next. Entirely drinkable.

I need to get myself more of this!

thanks to Robbeer for bringing this to Japan.
Beautiful rich brown head, with mid-night black body.
Rich aroma of charred cedar, espresso, walnuts, beautiful.
The rich fresh roasted coffee flavors, with molasses, and a huge carmel finished. This has an incredibly long charred chestnut finish.
Smooth mouthfeel on a medium body, minimal carbonation, incredibly mild for 9%.

A: black, dark strong looking brew here. Held up to the light you see some ruby red tones around the edges.

S: sweet, alcohol is there. You get a creamy smell, mixed with alot of dark fruits. Chicolate an maybe some anise. Kinda odd dark fruit

T: chocolate, creamy, dark fruits straight forward. Malty sweet well balanced. Maybe some milkiness

M: thick, full bodied beer. Crramy, silky

O: great baltic. Well balanced. Exceptional beer.

An almost perfect beer. Pours deep brown, almost black, with a tan head. Low carbonation and a little lacing. The smell is almost all dark fruit, with a touch of chocolate or something else sweet. Taste is more dark fruit and a richness that doesn't overwhelm. Delicious dark cherry notes. This beer is exactly why I love Duck-Rabbit. Intense flavor in perfect balance.

Bottomless brown with a magenta kicker, this beer is adorned with a briar-colored head, which at first pour spans the breadth of the glass. Soon the head begins to drop, spotting the face until finally a simple but tenacious atmospheric ring remains clinging on the perimeter.

The nose is astounding, leading with full sweet fruits drizzled in chocolate and caramel. Molasses and sweet alcohol notes brandish in turn. Brown sugar can be found cavorting with hints of floral hops and dried apricots.

The prodigious quality of this beer is continued in the flavor arena. Within the viscid weight is bound up cola, cane and booze. This heady potion backs up the hints we found inside the nose. Darker fruits they rear their heads these plums, currants and goose. ‘Till once again in brew review, my way I've come to lose. When not rhyming but describing notes is what I have to choose, (I know I'll cringe on reading this once waking from my snooze.)

As my manner of verse is more Dre than Dickinson, I hereby return this review to a more palatable format. It concludes in less than poetic fashion with the following statements:

Duck-Rabbit Baltic Porter is syrupy and sweet with a warming alcohol presence. The nose is sweet and dark and full, and the delightful flavors follow suit. This beer is outlandishly drinkable.

It be some truly moby hooch.
