The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery
North Carolina, United States
duckrabbitbrewery.com

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Duck-Rabbit Brown Ale is an American brown brewed with loads of hops from start to finish (it's hoppy and beautifully bitter). Amarillo boil hops provide a spicy citrusy bitterness. Saaz dry hops offer a refined flowery aroma. These hops are supported by seven varieties of malt. The Duck-Rabbit Brown Ale is a great choice for anyone who appreciates assertive hops and nutty toasted malt flavors – oh yeah!

On tap in a pint glass.

Look: Dark brown, amber hue. Head dissipated quickly. Little to no lacing.
Smell: Mostly roasty and toasty with some alcohol. Almost smoky or woody. A little sweet with a maple hint. Some hop high notes.
Taste: Heavy on the dark roasted malts. More hop bitterness than most brown ales I've had. A little touch of a caramel or toasted pecan effect. Not as sweet as the smell.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, fizzy and tingly.
Overall: The "dark beer specialists" are amping up the dark roast on this one. If you think all Starbucks coffee tastes burnt, than this roast may be a bit too much for you. Impressive, but depends on what you like.
