The Duck-Rabbit’s Scotch Ale is a full-bodied, deep copper-colored treasure. Bold and malty, this beer’s sweetness comes from a massive quantity of grain complemented by some serious kettle carmelization. The flavor is rounded out by a warming alcohol sensation.

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Sweet caramel malt aroma with some peat and a touch of smoke. Pours deep caramel brown with a medium tan head and good lacing. Caramel malt with a hint of brown sugar to start. Finishes extremely smooth with a rich peatiness and a bit of smoke and booze. Excellent scotch ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GTAEgeek (1927) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
On tap at the Perimeter Taco Mac. Dark brown color, with a small, tan head. The aroma is vanilla, caramel, peat, and light smoke. The flavor is very sweet, with light earthiness. Medium body, smooth, and a little lively on the tongue. This is a nice, mild, and very approachable scotch ale. Well done.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Vintage 2009. Ar: Caramel and deep toasted malt - clean rosy alcohol - sherry-like oxidation. Ap: Amber with a bright red color - slightly hazy - small light tan head with moderate retention, leaving a thin ring of foam and some big bubbles. T: Sweet caramel, with a roasted edge - sherry and nougat, somewhat sharp - a warming, but clean and well-aged alcohol - clean yeast profile, with a touch of apple sweetness - rich melanoidin flavor on the finish, which lingers - very low bitterness. P: Medium-full body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: This beer aged pretty well - the caramel, nougat, and malt flavors are very dominant, but come off as a bit sharp - overall, pretty solid.

Gachupines (1248) - USA - JUN 19, 2013
Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is smoked peat with undercurrents of dark fruit. Flavor is bittersweet malt with a bit of smoke. A little earthy, but it finishes a little overly sweet. Not bad though.
