Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Year-round

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.

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long lasting, fluffy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of herbal, piney hops, toasted malt and dark fruit. Body is medium and smooth. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is long and very hoppy. Too hoppy for Brown Ale.
