A - Two fingers worth of late to develop light brown colored, lush, creamy, dense whipped frothy goodness with a bit of a rocky top... Stellar retention... The color is an opaque slightly dull black... Appears still from a distance, but there is a good bit of spry rapid paced micro sized carbonation seen towards the top of the glass under closer examination... Rock star appearance for the style... Sheets of lacing cling to the sides of the glass...

S - A nice mix of hops... Some floral and some piney... A very nice complimentary roasted malt character... Hints of milk chocolate and lightly roasted coffee... Molasses... Nice balance and depth... All the scents work well together and nothing hogs the spotlight...

T - Roasted malts... Espresso... Milk chocolate... All this is balanced nicely by a blanket of piney hops... The hops then fade a bit and are replaced by more malty goodness... More roasted malts and a hint of smoke... The hops reemerge on the finish and continue to intensify... Very nice...

M - Medium bodied... Slightly dry... Spry carbonation... Even and consistent... Goes down easily sip after sip...

D - An outstanding American Black Ale... It should also be noted that this one scores nicely in terms of the value proposition... There's a lot of very good things going on here for a rather economical price... Possibly my favorite Duck Rabbit offering... Just because they are the "dark beer specialists," doesn't mean they don't know what to do with some hops... Kudos...

Poured on-tap at the Carolina Ale House in Fayetteville, the beer was served in a 22oz mug. The beer is a dark brown-to-black coloring with ruby highlights and a dense, creamy, foamy, light tan head. Nose of coffee and cream, earthy notes, and bitter, dry hops. Flavors are roast forward, with mocha notes throughout, creamy highlights, and a solid, dry, bitter backbone. Easy to drink. Light, smooth, crisp body. The aftertaste is coffee and cream again, with chocolate highlights. Smooth, clean finish. Not overly hopped, but very well balanced and very drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap
