Review: Duck-Rabbit Rabid Duck

Duck-Rabbit Rabid Duck from Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery, The
Rating: A-

Thanks to mikesgroove for sending this one my way...

Appearance: Pours opaque and jet black, with an enormous tan-colored head with good retention. Lots of lacing.

Smell: Strong aroma that's detectable as soon as the beer hits the bottom of the glass. Chocolate, roast, and a slight hint of... anise? Some coffee and alcohol.

Taste: Strongly bitter and roasty. Everything else takes a back seat: dark fruit, coffee and chocolate. Hop character is grassy, and shows up in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body, carbonation good for the style.

Drinkability: Not my favorite RIS, but solid.

Serving type: bottle
