Many thanks go out to ipa2xs for bringing this up from North Carolina for a trade. I've been wanting to get some of these for quite awhile.

APPEARANCE: Pours into a Sam Adams glass completely black. A dark tan head quickly forms but stays fairly low in height. It immediately drops to a small collar and a few bubbly patches that are no doubt helped by the nucleation sites in the glass.

SMELL: The aroma is a balanced blend of chocolate, black malt, alcohol, and dark fruits, pretty much in that order. The smell as a whole is nice and strong, but it doesn't quite measure up to the authentic versions of the style from eastern Europe.

TASTE: The taste comes much closer to its European counterparts. Heavy chocolaty notes coupled with a raisiny licorice quality come out strong. Alcohol is heavy in the front, but smooths out tremendously.

MOUTHFEEL: It's got a nice medium-full body, but that's not good enough here. It should require a knife and fork to get through it, but that's not quite the case here. It is close, however, and does go down silky smooth.

DRINKABILITY: Alcohol gets in the way somewhat, and by their nature, Baltic porters are not the most drinkable beers. But this one does quite well all things considered, and another one could not be ruled out.

Definitely a fantastic beer and I'm glad I was able to acquire a six pack. Now I just need to somehow make it last, because I don't know when I'm going to be able to get any more.

Pours black. That’s about all there is to say about the color, this stuff is dark. There’s a beige head that fades pretty rapidly leaving just a thin ring. The initial aroma of dark, bittersweet chocolate is noticeable as soon as I opened the bottle. The mouth feel is thick and quite smooth. There’s a moderate about of carbonation to tingle the tongue as well. Initially the flavor is that of dark chocolate. The alcohol provides a warming sensation on the way down. The alcohol is well played in this one. It is not overbearing nor unpleasant. As the beer warms, roasted coffee flavors begin to emerge, along with some dark fruit. There are some faint bitter hops detected in the aftertaste, along with roasted coffee.

Thanks to Beavers for this brew.

12oz. brown bottle poured into an imperial pint. Best buy 10/08.

A: Pours a complete black with a much thicker viscosity than I had expected. 1/2 finger of tan head struggles to form even after compensating halfway through the pour with more aggressiveness. Not much retention or lacing.

S: Fresh bananas and some starchiness. Light cola and sweet milk chocolate.

T/M: Light chocolaty taste with some coffee in the back. Alcoholic body with interesting phenolic. More bananas. I've never had a Baltic porter and it's kind of hard to describe. Medium heavy body with low carbonation.

D: Very tasty but I'd probably only have one in a sitting. The remaining 5 shouldn't have trouble getting drank.

The body on this one is so brown its almost black. The head is almost nil with no lacing.

Smells roasty with butterscotch notes that could be diacytal. (sp?) Also a strong aroma of raisins. A lot of alcohol as well.

Lots of roast and port-like flavors. Sharp bite of alcohol could be hidden better, but it's forgivable. Lots of great chocolaty bitterness at the end. Mediocre start, great finish.

Smooth and coating with subtle but sharp carbonation. It serves to cut the high ABV and keep it at just the right stickiness for the style.

It's got some not-so-great characteristics, but I would try it again. Letting this one age a year might help as well.

Bottle from 2007.

A pour from 5 inches above my glass results in a beautiful rust-tan head three fingers high, but it quickly reduces itself to several centimeters worth of fine bubbles. The beer itself is sheer black. No lacing to speak of.

I let the brew sit and warm a bit while I continue to smell it. My first thought is how incredibly sweet this smells. Loads of dark chocolate cake and espresso aromas lurk in here, along with molasses and alcohol. Sugary is a good start describing this.

I take a sip and blink a few times. This is intense. And it's not all good either... Big bold burnt / charred grain flavor upfront, bitter and roasty and would be over the top if not balanced with an equally absurd mix of sweet, sweet, dark chocolate and molasses. There's a bit of dark fruit back in there somewhere, and a mild sourness that I'm not sure was desired. The alcohol is hot and aggressive, and lends an eye opening kick as you swallow it as it warms your throat immediately. Lots of fusels here which I don't like. It finishes bitter and espresso-like with some lingering nuttiness and sweetness which coat the mouth and a graininess that's not helping things out. Seems like they may have gone overboard with the chocolate malt and / or black patent malt in the recipe. The extreme burnt flavor and maltiness constantly fight for command of your taste buds. It's just too much.

Mouthfeel is slick and coating, and the carbonation is too lively for this sort of thing. It's a little hard to drink as each sip is such an explosion of intense flavor -- reminds one of World Wide Stout for sheer audacity.

There is a good beer buried here, but as it stands now it's quite tough to drink. I'm going to cellar the remainder of my 6 pack because I really believe this will be heaps better in a year or... three. Just now it's too young and wild and needs to sit in the corner till it learns to behave.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle

A: Black body under a small brown head, no lacing, some retention.

S: A lot going on here. Some smoke, chocolate, creamy sweetness, roasted malt, hints of nut and dark fruit. A very rich character.

T: Sweet maltiness mixed with the slighest hint of smoke, finishes with a roasted bitterness that settles into a dark chocolate character. Slight hint of nut again, alcohol is apparent and adds a little "umph" and slight drying quality to the middle and end. Much like the nose, this one has a very rich quality.

M/D: Thick on the tongue and more carbonation then I expected. This one is a sipper but one that I would definately reach for second of.

12oz bottle received in a trade with limesmut. Thanks again

Poured a dark brown/black with a tan/brown head that disappeared gradually. Smell is roasty, figgy malts, and a bit of alcohol. Taste is roasty malt with a lactose type sweetness mixed in there. Thick mouthfeel that coats the taste buds after each sip. Respectable brew from Duck Rabbit, I wish I could get their stuff locally.

Received in trade from KarrHeel03 and Revisited 12/13/2009

Pours a solid black with a good sized tan head that dissipates quickly to a ring on top and minimal lacing. Smells of dark chocolate and roasted coffee up front, touch of hops and alcohol hidden underneath. Taste is rich with chocolate and dark fruits. I imagine sour cherries and black currant as I sip this one. It proves to be quite sweet but the burn of alcohol in the finish mixed with a distant hop bitterness keeps it from being cloying. Creamy almost syrupy mouthfeel, thick body, light carbonation. I think I enjoyed this a lot more this time around. I have another bottle that I think will age for a while and revisit in a few years. My score reflects this most recent tasting.

12oz bottle obtained via trade with BeerTruth. Thanks for the opportunity...

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" dark brown head above the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head fades gradually, with slow-falling lace. Aroma is roasty grain and alcohol, although more rubbing than ethyl. Taste follows the nose, with the alcohol component quite hot. Mouthfeel is a bit rough, and drinkability is okay, both affected by my perception of the booziness being over-the-top. If this was cranked back just a little on the abv, this would be so different, since the dark malt flavors abound and please. They just get shouted down here.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Roasted coffee bean black with a glimmer of ruby along the bottom edge of the glass. The creamy caramel colored lid is on the small side, which isn't surprising for a higher ABV ale that received a gentler than usual pour. It hold its own, for several minutes at least, and leaves just enough lace to be polite.

The nose could just as easily belong to a Russian Imperial stout as a Baltic porter. On second and third sniff, it's a dead ringer for an RIS. Roasted and black malts create nicely aromatic aromas of chocolate syrup, espresso and blackstrap molasses, in decreasing order of prominence. There's no way that this isn't going to be good beer.

The flavor is more impressive than the mouthfeel. The former is about what I expected (these guys can brew), but the latter isn't as big as it needs to be given the ABV and the style. With more of a heavy creaminess, that would have led to more flavor intensity and more flavor linger, Baltic Porter could have been something special.

Each mouthful is a delicious commingling of bittersweet chocolate, crushed coffee beans and tangy dark fruit. That last one is what makes Baltic Porter tastes like a Baltic porter rather than an RIS. The sourness is somewhat lactic acid-like, but is more fruity. Something along the lines of chocolate-covered figs and black currants.

The body/mouthfeel belongs on a 7%'er, not a 9%'er. It is hunkering down a bit as the beer warms, but I'm still not blown away. I wonder if age has anything to do with the less than full feel. The estimated age of this bottle is somewhere around 18 months, with a full year to go before the 'best by' date. At least the bubbles stay in the background.

Baltic Porter is my first high-gravity beer from Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery. Even though it's at least as good as Brown Ale, Porter and Milk Stout, I expected more. Olfabrikken, Okocim and Sinebrychoff have nothing to worry about. However, if the brewers add more malt and can work on improving the mouthfeel, the Euros might get a little uneasy. This one has potential.

12 oz. bottled best by 9/08. Big thanks to ncvbc!

Very dark brown with chocolate ruby edges. Finger of gauzy, cocoa brown head. Decent retention. Big dark chocolate and vanilla bean aromas mix with roasted coffee, caramel, sweet milk chocolate, and fresh tobacco.

What is a duck-rabbit? This one starts oily with roasted barley and coffee notes. Bitter dark chocolate leads to sweeter dark fruits, light vanilla, whiskey/bourbon oak, and peat. Herbal, bitter hops build quickly into the finish. Big coffee/dark chocolate/hop bitterness lasts along with warming bourbon-ish alcohol. Complex and delicious. Full bodied, with velvety smooth carbonation. Very nice.

Extra thanks to Kwakwhore for the send,tried some Duck Rabbits while on vacation at the Outer Banks this summer,they were all exceptional beers. Glad i got to try this seasonal beer from Duck Rabbit.
Opaque,black looked stout-like. Slight amount of tan head,less than an 1" settled into a lasting creamy layer throughout the beer.No much lacing,just a spot or two.

Intense roasty aroma,very smokey,chard wood,dusty chocolate,black coffee/mocha. Great complex malty nose,lots of earthyness also. Has a creamy,vanallia extract aroma,just a tinge of alcohol.

Very roasty taste,strong burnt notes,chard wood,bittersweet chocloate,black coffee,thick layered carmellness,creamy mocha with a touch of vanallia.Lots of sweet dark fruityness,the alcohol is fairly well hidden with a nice,slight warming effect.Very good balance,finishes with a clean earthy/woody very sharp,pleasing bitterness.Fades into a tounge swelling drying bitterness,has a touch of sourness. Lots of complexity,very enjoyable taste.

Very smooth and creamy,medium bodied. The kind of beer that leaves you craving more. Exceptional drinkability for a 9% beer. If you like baltic porters this is a must try beer. Another great beer fron Duck Rabbit deservingly worthy of being the dark beer specialists.

A- This pours a dark black color with one finger of browish orange head. It is totally black which lets no light through.

S- A ton of aroma here. This is what I pick up: Chocolate, mocha, nuts, alcohol, dark dried raisins and prunes, malt and a sweet cream smell.

T- Burnt/smoked raisins. Rich and creamy smoky dark chocolate. Alcohol is prominent in the finish.

M- Creamy and thick. Carbonation is perfect though. The carbonation stings a little on the end, enhancing the alcohol in the finish.

D- Strong and rich as heck. One, maybe two on a good day, will definitely do the trick.

Thanks to my friend hurleymanvw for picking me up this sixer. I like this beer although this is by far not my favorite beer style. I can appreciate it though. Very nice!

2007 bottling. Poured very dark brown. Light only gets through around the edges. Paper thin dark tan head that swirls around a bit and fades into a ring in less than a minute. Sweet and rich smell of dark fruits and licorice, but roasted maltiness is there as well. Taste is complex. Flavors dance around on your tongue and battle it out for dominance. It starts out similar to how it smells but leaves with a bitter chocolate taste. Lingering roasted barley and alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel and the 9% abv is fairly well covered. I could drink another one. I am holding onto several of these, as I can already see the aging doing wonders for this brew.

okay, here it goes. I hate to rate such a loved brew so low, but i did not enjoy this one at all. 2007 12 ounce bottle received in a trade.

it poured black with little head, just a ring of tan foam.

it smelled of dark fruits and black licorice.

taste? i can only say black licorice and grape soda. those are the only flavors i can taste, and i tasted it at all temps from cold from the fridge all the way to room temp, still grape soda and licorice. not a pleasing combination for me.

thick for a porter, oily which coated my mouth, which is good in most cases, if you like the flavor.

I cant drink this again, not like this. I am hoping that the remaining bottles i have will change over time. I will hold on to them for 6-12 months and see if the flavor changes. i will revisit this one eventually to make sure of what im tasting, but i will not be in any hurry to do so.

Pours a thick, sludge, black color that reminds me of draining the oil from my car. Creamy, thick brown head sits on top of this one only to slowly die down. With every swirl of the glass more head returns and builds. Smell is of coffee, caramel, toasted malt, doughy cookies, smells awesome. Taste is sweet and sugary with dried fruit, some molasses, bitter with creamy coffee notes. Sticky, and creamy mouthfeeling that makes you smack your lips with every sip. Absolutely awesome beer, glad I was able to try it!

Pours black with a deep tan head. Aromas of caramel, coffee, and small hints of alcohol. In the taste, a sweet roasty malt and a alcohol presence. A smooth, with a small bite in the mouthfeel, and a dry roasty malt aftertaste. A great porter, big in alcohol, yet nicely balanced.

Thanks to Drunkasmonk. Gone too soon, a rich and dark full-mouthed stouty porter. Bittersweet cocoa. Very good brew and true to its style. Definitate smoke in the finish here. But I do think its style gets above average press compares to other, subtler styles.
Had again four months later at Atlanta Ale meeting, also not sour but more chocolate here and thick mouthfeel. Coffee at end.

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.

Pours out like motor oil with a thin mocha head that dies pretty quick. Smells of big chocolate, dried fruits, fig and molassas. Tastes as it smells. Delicious. Porter name is decieving as this is thick and big just like an RIS. Full in the mouth and silky smooth. Extremely drinkable and a damn delight to drink. Seek this one out.

Had this one aging for a little over a year. The beer is black as coal and there is a thick brown head. The smell is chocolate and coffee. Tha taste is oatmeal, coffee, chocolate. There is a nice roasted taste to this brew. The mouthfeel is smooth, maybe a little too smooth for a brew that rings in at 9%. A nice malty treat to sip on. Another home run from the east side of the Tarheel State.

12 oz bottle. The brew is deep deep deep brown in color with just small islands of head over top. There is a nice ring of tan head that is maintained by a nice stream of very fine bubbles. Clarity appears to be very good, but it is very dark and hard to see through. The aroma on this is sublime: chocolate and raisins abound, with a deeper molasses and even a bit of spicy anise playing in there as well. This one is beyond great smelling. The flavor is even better than expected. It starts with chocolate and light raisin. This makes a strong turn towards coffee and deep roast with chocolate melted in. The finish has a nice undertone of anise and coffee grounds. The sweet, fruity, roast notes all come together to make a fantastic beer. The mouthfeel is thick, almost a bit creamy as well, with a rather small to absent carbonation. Overall, I am enamored with this brew. I love how the coffee aspect of this one seems to just come out of nowhere in the flavor and then fall back behind the fruityness, with a crescendo back up on the tail. I also like how the coffee is not present in the aroma, and does a sneak attack in the flavor. There is absolutely no hint of the alcohol in this one anywhere, which makes this extremely dangerous in the long run. I have not had a beer this good in quite a while.

Received this as an extra in a trade with Enola. Many thanks, friend.
This is absolutely amazing! It poured absolutely black with a medium brown coloured head. Even when held up directly to a light bulb, there is no light at all passing through; not even the edges. This looks fantastic by my standards. This even "smells" heavy with some very rich notes of thick, creamy chocolate, coffee beans, some dark fruit in the background, and a bit of lactic sourness. Lactic sourness is a bit more noticeable in the taste, along with a bit of booze, but not even close to what one would expect from a 9% brew. Rich, dark roasted grains and semi-sweet chocolate are also very detectable. Mouthfeel is wonderful. Very thick and heavy with a consistency nearly like warm maple syrup. A very, very solid beer. This is a wonderful representation of the style and an offering I will certainly seek out in the future. Thanks again Enola!

Inspired by Don Russell's Baltic Porter article in the August BA, I decided to veer away from a summer-y, lighter-bodied beer this evening and go for this Baltic Porter. It's been biding its sweet time in the cellar til just last week, when upon noting an "enjoy by" date notching of "6/07", I decided it best be tasted ASAP. Thanks to whomever sent this to me back in the spring...

A: Deep, deep brown with just the faintest burgundy tint at the edges. Topped with a full finger of dusty tan-orange head, identical to the faded cedar on the arms of the deck chair in which I'm sitting; head dwindles to a thin bubbly cream that never goes away. Though it really can't be seen through the darkness, I know there's a lot of carbonation down inside, due to the busily fizzing pockmarks in the otherwise still head.

S: A dose of powdery chocolate shavings, a light vanilla, small amounts of sugary toffee maltiness, traces of tartness and oxidation with a nice puff of smokiness. Pleasant but not powerful.

T: Oh my! Lots of cocoa/milk chocolate and a souring, papery oxidation that's not detrimental at all. Tasty toasted caramel, a burnt nuttiness, more hints of vanilla and smoke(d meat?). Some not-so-subtle fruity tartness, like reduced cherries or figs. Wonderfully complex. Contrary to any worries over holding this beer too long, it's pretty outstanding several months pasts its supposed "expiration".

M: Medium-full thickness, viscous and oily as it slides down the tongue. Long clinging syrupy thickness with a modest amount of chocolate bittering and a twinge of lactic sourness. Just a little cloying. Hardly seems carbonated, despite what I can see. Could be convinced to give a '4.5' on a different day...

D: Excellent porter, loved the flavor and mouthfeel. Hoping to try this again next winter/spring once the next batch is released. Recommended, especially with some cellaring.

"Let me tell you a story 'bout a man named Jed..."

That's the first thing that popped into my head when I started pouring this one. It looked like I struck oil. Thick, viscous, dark, opaque...just some of the adjectives I could use to describe it. I guess you get the picture by now. It's black, with an inch high dark tan (think caramel sauce) head. The head fades to mainly a ring and only leaves minimal lacing.

Smelling this one brings out scents of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, molasses, and burnt toast.

The flavor starts with the chocolate and coffee before the dark fruits and some sourdough bread come out. Taste is sweeter than expected. If not for that almost sharp sweetness this would have gotten at least a 4.5 for taste. It's still damn tasty, though.

Super creamy, full bodied brew. Lightly carbonated. This is one highly enjoyable beer, but for me one would be it for the day. I will look for this again next year when it returns.

Big thanks to the one and only, barleywinebrewer, for this one.

12 oz. bottle poured into a nonic.

Pours a completely opaque black with a dark brown two finger head that quickly dies down to a thin lacing. Stickiness isn't really there. Smell is almost like an Old Ale. Powerful licorice dominates the scent with dark fruits joining. Molasses mixes into the nose as well as a tingle of alcohol. Taste is so sweet. Starts with a strong chocolate/caramel malt. Hops find themselves a bit in the middle while it finishes with a nice coffee long lasting flavor. Mouthfeel is full bodied and creamy with subtle but noticable carbonation. I really like the dinkability of this, I didn't look at the abv until after I drank it. So for 9%, it does an amazing job. I'm still looking for the Wee Heavy!!
