It's just not my type. It taste like burnt malt mixed with water. I like duck-rabbit but this was just not one ill have again.

Pours from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. The beer is pitch black with no light showing through. Topped with a massive, rocky, foamy, dark tan head. This one looks like a stout through and through.

Aroma was a bit off. Duck Rabbit is kind of known for a slightly sour beer with large alkaline notes. This one has a slightly sour aroma with some piney hop aromas. Nice dose of roastiness with a slight hint of coffee.

I wasnt a fan of the flavor on this one. It was really quite sour and mouth puckering. I had a hard time tasting anything past the sourness. I did note some coffee with little hop flavor. The sourness soured me.

I didnt think this was a very good effort. Perhaps something went slightly wrong in the ferment, or maybe this was supposed to be tangy; either way, not a fan.

12 oz bottle. best before 9/12.

A: very much opaque. i would call this black seeing as i cannot see any lighter hues around the edges. plumes of dark-white foam sit on top with great retention.

S: my initial impression is a battle of chocolate and american hop citrus. earthy and herbal. bitter burnt grain. a little autolysed? something sort of soy-like.

T: similar to the nose, chocolately and bitter. the body turns sour from the middle into the finish. a soy-sauce like lingering. my suspicion of autolysed yeast on the nose has been firmly confirmed. not sure how long ago this was bottled, regardless, still has a couple of months according to the label.

M: finer carb on a medium, pushing on full body.

D: i would imagine a fresher example would be much more tasty, especially considering the promising start on the nose. please pass on any bottles you may see still out there and wait for another batch!

Not really my style, so take it for what it's worth. It's a IPL all day, just happens to be black.
