Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout brewed in Farmville, North Carolina

Duck Rabbit Milk Stout brewed by the Duck-Rabbit Brewery - Farmville, North Carolina            

Duck Rabbit Milk Stout is a traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.

The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery is in the eastern North Carolina town of Farmville. The brewery specializes in dark beers. According to Paul Philippon, brewmaster and founder of the company, “There are rich dark beer traditions that are under-represented in our beer market. As a dark beer specialist, The Duck-Rabbit has a great opportunity to serve a thirsty niche of specialty beer lovers.”

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: This beer, poured from a bottle into a mug, produced a dark tan creamy 1/2" head that dissipated slowly leaving good head lacing. There was little carbonation in an opaque very dark brown body.

AROMA: All malt -- moderate toasted bread, light notes of smoke, coffee, dark chocolate, honey and roasted malts.

Taste: Taste followed the nose on this one. Moderate toasted bread, coffee, dark chocolate with a light touch of honey and smoke. Well put together and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: A full-bodied stout with a creamy texture, little carbonation and good body lacing that dissipates slowly. The initial flavor was a pleasing moderate sweetness coupled with a light bitterness -- definitely well-balanced -- with a finish that was somewhat less sweet, still slightly bitter with just a touch of dryness that lingered for a moderate amount of time.

Overall: I could consume this stout all night long. It has a good price-performance ratio and is easy to drink. I'll definitely buy it again. It is a solid, dependable beer that I would be happy to have and to serve again and again.



Duck-Rabbit Logo
All Duck-Rabbit beers display the brewery’s logo, a silhouette which can look like a duck’s head or a rabbit’s head, depending on the viewer’s perspective. “Before I was a professional brewer, I taught college philosophy. A version of the duck-rabbit picture appears in a philosophy book I admire and I wanted to use a logo that recalls my former life,” explains Paul Philippon, owner and brewer. Erb connects the logo with the company specialty, saying, “Many people don’t see beyond their first impression of a dark beer: color. The Duck-Rabbit line-up demonstrates that different dark beers can be refreshing, thirst-quenching, hoppy, balanced, and robust. With our beer as with our logo, a second look might reveal something you didn’t expect.”
