Duck-Rabbit Porter

Another solid beer from The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery in Farmville, NC. Information about the brewery (and their awesome flexibility) can be found here.

The porter from the DRCB is a pretty tasty porter. I enjoyed this beer on a stinky hot evening and I swear I thought I was drinking Gatorade, because my thirst was totally quenched. Very dark in color, the DRCB porter tastes a bit like coffee or chocolate, as any good porter would, but it had a crispness to it that was very satisfying. Like when you have a to-do list that has lots of things on it, then you finish one of those tasks, and you cross it off, and it feels really good. That kind of satisfying feeling, in liquid form. I slowly enjoyed this fine porter, but drank it quickly enough so that it was still cold. I bet it would taste like ass if it was even a wee bit warm. I don't think I would drink many of these in one night, but if I just got done playing a rough and tough basketball game, it would hit the spot (again, the ideal thirst quencher). Or it would be fun to drink a lot of these then try to play H-O-R-S-E with a women's basketball in someone's driveway. At 5.7% ABV, it's pretty average, and at ~$9-10 a six-pack, its a little pricey, but still worth it. All in all, if you want to be like Kevin Garnett or Peyton Manning, drink this porter. Anything is possible!
