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. Pours a clear deep amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain with a bit of dark grain and some earthy tobacco underlying. Flavor is smooth with sweet grains with a bit of tobacco and earthy grain.

Malty, caramel smell. Almost has a barley wine nose. Sweet taste with a but more hop presence than "normal" scotch ales. Clean finish with a malty aftertaste.

I think I got this one from bulbman in a trade, can’t remember. Anyway, the first thing that struck me about this beer was that it was lighter in color than most wee heavy beers I have had. This was not brown but more of a light amber color. Smells very malty and then the taste backs it up, malty and good. The alcohol was very well concealed so I had no trouble polishing this one off in a short amount of time. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-26-2011 21:35:11

Bottle. Pours a clear darker amber color with a moderate off-white head. Sweet and malty nose to this. A little bit of the malty bitterness to it, but it has a light and clean feel to it.

djd07 (3896) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown with a small beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is raisin malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a strong caramel and sweet chocolate with nice sweet finish. Easy to drink a very impressive Scotch ale from The Duck-Rabbit.

DiarmaidBHK (3578) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours dark brown with a practically nonexistent khaki head that doesnt leave much lacing. Not much on the nose. Has a slight maltiness on the tongue. Has a bit of an alcohol burn on the finish. Not as awesome as I’d hoped it would be.

bottle to glass; good example of this style - a little too much alcohol aroma taste for me, but all good otherwise
