The Duck-Rabbit Brown Ale is an American brown ale brewed with loads of hops from start to finish (it’s hoppy and beautifully bitter). Amarillo hops in the boil provide a spicy citrusy bitterness. Saaz dry hops in the fermentor provide a refined flowery aroma. These hops are supported by a grain bill of seven varieties of malt. Oh yeah!

    Beautiful warm brown color with a tan cap that has decent staying power. Rich toasty bread aroma, nutty, almost toasted sesame. Great toasted nut flavor, too-- quite deep without char or smoke. Bitter but balanced, the sweetness shows when it's paired with veg. Wet & light enough to pair with food, especially something salty. Tiny carbonation and great feel.

    Couldn't find anything wrong with this, dead on for a slightly nutty, slightly sweet brown ale. Not a style I am overly fond of and I don't really seek out but it was well made and very easy to drink.

    I love Duck-Rabbit. Picked this up in Asheville. One of my favorite breweries from the Southeast. Pours a murky brownish black with a beautiful tan head. Aroma is nutty, caramel, brown sugar and chocolate. Taste is similar, very milky and very smooth.

    Had two different bottles on consecutive weekends and a shame on both- infection is starting to creep in .. light brown, intense champagne bubbled head- clear infection .. light caramel, mop water and cherry skins .. . Worse than nerd? Um, I don't, this is a tough one.

    One 5 oz sample of a 6 beer sampler at 3 son’s in Wexford, nice place. Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Supposedly by the DR owner. Looks a little darker than ginger ale. Mild hop fragrance on the nose. No head, just a tea froth. Nice earthy feel on the palate. Enjoyable fro a lager lover yet has some hop personality. Rather friendly at first then begins to morph into back of throat bitterness. Sparkles nicely in the glass. Medium bitter linger on the finish. DR brown S5L3F2T408

    Received this nice Brown a while back courtesy of bluesandbarbq. The cap popped with authority, and foamed a fountain out of the bottle. Topped the glass with HUGE dense brown head over a brilliant ruby-brown body. Bold nose of roasted malt and hazelnuts. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, and a full tangy mouthfeel. Pleasant flavors of well-roasted malt, nutty bittersweet chocolate and a slightly rough bitter hop edge. Clean, slightly sour and quite bitter finish in the de nouveau American style. Very nice indeed.

    The aroma is very malty with sweet overtones with some figs coming through and is earthy-like with maybe some slight bitter. The appearance is a nice, crisp red burgundy to brown in color with not much of a head on top and discipates leaving decent lacing on the glass. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and of complex maltiness with some good balance with a pallet that is wet-like and coats well. The flavor is very malty with some bitter coming through and is almost bready with an aftertaste that is refreshing and smooth and malty with maybe some bitter hoppiness with a finish that is nice and not too bad and is wet-like and pretty tasty. Overall, this is a nice product from Duck Rabbit and is a solid beer with pretty good drinkability and is tasty but maybe a little too malty for me. "Dark beer specialists"...maybe.

    Pours a deep brown with a nice tannish head and some lacing. Some carbonation. Aromas of sweet toasted malts, a little molasses, and a surprising kick of hops. Taste is almond-nutty with a slight sweetness then a good dose of hops leaving a slightly bitter dryness.

    It pours a nice dark brown, barely transparent, with a fairly persistent off-white head. Aroma is rich and rather malty with some hop undertone and hints of spice. Flavor is surprisingly hoppy and fairly but not unpleasantly bitter; there is some maltiness and a touch of spice. Texture is fairly smooth.

    Bottle courtesy of Turdfurgeson: Poured a clear deep brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention. Aroma of deep caramel malt with some light molasses. Taste is also dominated by some sweet caramel malt as well as molasses with some light toffee notes. I also found it to be quite hoppy for the style but it still made enjoyable. Body is quite full with some good carbonation. Pretty good overall if maybe a tad too sweet for my liking.
