3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2012 Bottle. Smells like soy milk and malt. Taste is very sweet. Caramel, bread and butter, and sweet maybe earthy malt. Strong palate and finish...alcohol comes through nicely in this wee heavy.

It poured a dark amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of caramel malts and some dark fruits. The taste was similar with a slight warming alcohol. It is not much more than an average scotch ale, so not on my list to go searching for. A average Scotch Ale.

Draft. Pours a nice copper amber. Minimal aroma. Taste is slightly caramelly, little bit of an alcoholic sting to it. Mellows out as you continue tasting. Not as complex as some of the other wee heavies out there, but not bad.

Absolutely beautiful amber color in the glass. Definitely taste the alcohol but the overall complexity makes this a beer geek’s delight! Love the surprise punch and the finish while a little rugged really delivers. Had on tap in my shop in Wake Forest, NC but the bottles are equally tasty.

Pours amber with an offwhite head. Aroma is caramel, bread and light toast. Taste is sweet with some faint warming on the finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Another great Duck-Rabbit brew.

A pretty solid example of this style. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly hazy red-caramel color with a medium sized creamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet cherry, fig, nut and toffee. The flavor was bitter and sour caramel, fig. tobacco and toffee. The finish was medium length sour and tart cherry and toffee. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear ruby/amber color with a little bit of light brown head. Aroma is fantastic, very reminiscent of cotton candy with a bit of caramel. The flavor builds on that cotton candy sweetness and develops into a slightly pruny tartness. Beer finishes with both a bit of sweet and tart flavor on the palate. Very nice scotch that feels lighter than it actually is.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Secret Santa. Pours copperish brown with off-white head. Aromas of earth and peat with dark fruits, dark malts, and some booze. Flavors peat, earth, dark fruits, fair amount of booze, little sweetness from the malt, and there some bitterness in the finish. Kind of boozy in the finish. I like my wee heavies on the sweet and malty side, and this is definitely not that. Not a poorly made beer. Just not my thing.

Bottle. Pours a deep maroon with a thinish beige head. Smell is strong on the caramel malts, sweetness and some bourbon like qualities. Taste is sweet caramel, malt balls, a bit of booze. This is a nice beer, but not up there with the top scotch ales for me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Full bodied Ale. The flavors are heavy caramel malt with an earthy-peat taste. Very sticky. The flavors seem to grow in a long-lasting aftertaste that clings to the tongue.
