I had this beer about 2 weeks ago when I was in NC. I really enjoyed it. I didn't take notes, so I don't have anything intelligent to say about it other than I remember all the Duck Rabbit beers I had (the Dopplebock, amber ale, and brown ale) were really impressive.

Well this is another Duck Rabbit I have to try...even in NC, finding some of the less stock brews can be difficult (I still haven't had a chance to try their Baltic Porter...) As trumpetbeard hinted, Duck Rabbit is an awesome brewery...

Apparently the Baltic porter is a seasonal release, and I am not sure when they release it. It is, according to my memory, an excellent beer, although I can't speak to its being as great an example of its style as I have not had too many bps to which to compare it. Their milk stout is one of my "go to" beers at restaurants here in NC. I saw the hoppy bunny in the store the other day and now will grab some.

I had it this weekend. Definitely a decent brew, but for some reason I can't get down with the dark and hoppy (think black IPA) beers. Not enough focus on the things I love about dark and toasty, and hoppy/ aromatic beers, respectively, I guess. Probably something I honestly just don't "get". Still love this brewery and love to have it my state (plus points for there actually being a real town called FarmVille where they are located!). Go NC beer!

I don't get why people like this one either. I'm a hop head too. My favorite duck rabbit is the barley wine. Tw.

I really liked it. I will definitely pick up another six pack if I see one. Is it seasonal?
