Poured 12oz bottle into snifter. 7.3% abv

Appearance- Deep black with a massive tan colored head.

Smell- Citric notes of grapefruit and orange. Vanilla and cocoa hints as well.

Taste- Smoky flavors surround the toasted caramel malt. Cocoa slowly picks up as well in the flavor profile until leading up to a bitter hop finish.

Mouthfeel- Thick and heavy in body. The carbonation is quite lively.

Overall- Interesting, as the cocoa flavor adds complexity for such a hoppy beer. IPA meets porter. A good sipping beer.

A - Very dark brown color, deep red around the edge of the glass. Creamy brown head 2-3 fingers. Good retention and lacing.

S - Citrus and floral hops upfront. Roasted malts come through as well. Some cocoa. Very hoppy dark beer

T - Picking up everything I got in the smell, Definitely like a black ipa. Very piney and bitter citrus flavors. Roasted malts are coming through as it warms up, but still a very strong hop presence. Slightly metallic bitterness on the back end, seems stringer when cold and fades as the beer warms. Best after being out of the fridge for 20 minutes or so.

F - Strong carbonation that works very well here, giving it a mouth feel like an ipa.

Another very good beer from duck rabbit. I wish this one was more common, hard to find outside of bottle shops, even in NC. Would like to see this one on draft a little more often, Ive had it at festivals and would order this beer regularly. Great hop lovers beer from the dark beer specialist.
