Duck Rabbit finally available in Nashville. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into tulip glass.

Pours nice and thick, dark, oily. A nice thick medium brown head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and toasted bread. Some hops in there as well. The upfront taste is a relatively strong hop bitterness, this quickly turns to sweet, smoky coffee and chocolate. Slightly smoky, excellent flavor. Consistency is perfect, medium bodied and very drinkable; low carbonation. Overall an excellent beer. I haven't had many of this style but I can't imagine there are many that are better than this one.

Pours dark brown to black with a fluffy tan head. Soft notes of smoke and roasted malt.

Nice chocolate and roasted malt notes predominate. Coffee bean note works in well. There is also a very soft, subdued creamy note lingering toward the finish, which is really interesting for style (but totally works). Carbonation is a bit on the happy side, but for style, it works out. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium. Nice head retention. I could drink more than one of these and would be very happy doing so.

Smooth and crisp, slightly bitter but pleasantly so. A very good American-made example of the style. Ham and aged gouda would be heavenly paired with this.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a reddish black with a large light brown head. Smells of fruit notes in the dark roasted malt with very slight hints of chocolate. Tastes of dark roasted malt, slight caramel, and slight fruit taste, a little different. Beer is light bodied and sessionable, carbonation is perfect. Overall, an above average beer.
