Is it a duck or is it a rabbit? Maybe a kerduckababbit? All bad jokes aside I had to read up on this brewery.
The Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery is based out of Farmville, NC and was founded by a former University philosophy teacher, Paul Philippon. His label is derived Gestalt-style image called the Duck-Rabbit diagram. This diagram can be found in the Philosophical Investigations by Ludwig Wittgenstein. Not the other Ludwig’s, because there are so many of them, @_@. I feel like I’m doing a research paper, geeze louise. Anyway, Paul likes the idea of using a logo that had ties to his former life.
So do you see a duck or a rabbit? It all depends on your state of mind. Right now I see a Milk Stout in front me. A very interesting thing about Duck Rabbit Brewery, they specialize in “dark” beers. Is it a philosophy trick? You’ll have to ask Paul.
Just a quick note, I’m not a big fan of milk so lets see how this goes. At the pour it is the complete opposite of milk. Lovely dark brown and the head brings images of chocolate milk. The smell is a wonderful aroma of; bitter roasted chocolate coffee beans, say that 5 times fast. Going in for the taste, wish me luck.
Wow, amazing! This is like a dark roasted iced coffee with no milk. I went into this with low expectations because I am not a huge fan of stout beers but I would highly recommend this beer. I am a huge fan of coffee so maybe that’s the hook.
This is a delicious dark malt with a bounty or flavors. I will have to save one for Scott or maybe not, it will depend on my state of mind.
Cheers Paul Philippon.
