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.

Tap at Sessions. Pours cloudy red brown with a small beige head leaving lace. Aroma is sweet chocolate malty burnt sugar toasted and nutty. Flavor is sweet malty in front, coffee and chocolate with bitter and in rwasing maltyness. Finishes dry yet sweet malty and bitter

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

Originally reviewed: 1/21/09. Pours a dark burnt rust color with very little head. No lacing at all either. I’ve definitely seen better. Smells of banana’s, caramel, plums, and malt. Nice crisp mouthfeel that sits in the mouth well. No burning sensation. Taste is of roasted caramel, licorice, slight nuttiness, all capped off with a touch of metal! I love the offerings from DR, but looking back on my experiences with them, they all seem to have this weird metallic twang to them. Oh well. Easy drinker. Recommend.

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.
