Duck-Rabbit? Milk stout? Yes, really.
Although the beer geeks at RateBeer.com adore it, this brew is not for everyone. Duck-Rabbit is a milk stout, which, as explained here, is a stout is made with “sweet and unfermentable lactose.” (Lactose=milk sugar.)
Which is to say the flavor is peculiar. Sure, Duck-Rabbit shows familiar stout notes—chocolate, coffee, and roast. But there’s another flavor that suffuses it that is difficult to place, and which throws the palate for a loop. For sure, it is sufficiently flavorful that a single 12-ounce bottle exhausts the palate. (has anyone ever downed a six-pack? The mind boggles at the thought.) The head on this stout is huge—you need to pour it very slowly. For anyone looking to expand their beer experiences, the Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout is worth a try. (Rating: Very Good)
