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.

Thanks to ross for this - dark purple pour with minimal head - aroma of smoke and roasted grains, full vanilla and caramel, some dark fruit - vanilla is quite dominant in the flavor, which is unusual, but welcome - plum and a touch of anise - caramel and dry roasted grain/malt - light cocoa - mild spiciness throughout - quite a nice brew.

Bottle courtesy of ross. Enjoy by: 08/07. A clear ruby pour with a thick British khaki head. Aroma of caramel, plums, vanilla extract, some roasty malts, brown sugar and a little spice. Decent body for the style. Goes down sweet and stays that way throughout. Lots of plums, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla and some spices. Finishes with a little dryness, a bit of warmth and some graininess.

kp’s Fest of 26. Ruby brown with an off-white head. Malty aroma , just a bit of alcohol. Rich, biscuity malt flavor. This could be one of the best underrated beers from the south at present.

A reddish brown pour with lite foamy lacing. A nice slightly sweet malt flavor with a hint of alcohol. A smooth even palate with a slightly spicy flavor. I really liked this beer. I would like to find a full bottle and drink it by myself so that I could be sure.

Huge thanks to Ross for this one! Deep amber/mahogany apperance with a small head that dissapears in a hurry. Aroma is intense with sweet roasted grains, cereal, a touch of barnyard, spice and decomposing fruit. Flavors are big and full with more malt domination, grainy with earthy spices. Warming with a beautiful finish leaving a lingering taste that makes you want another. EXCELLENT beer! With more ratings this beer should find it’s way to 4.0+.

A dark amber appearance. The aroma is nutty with some caramel and alcohol. The flavor consists of chocolate, caramel, nutmeg, and some alcohol notes. A sweet finish. Damn good one.

(12oz bottle, best by 3/07, thanks chris_o) Clear mahogany body topped by a small beige head that diminishes rapidly. Aroma is sweet, caramel, candi sugar, chocolate, some raisin, light cherry, cinnamon. As it warms, some scotch presence makes itself felt. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, molasses, scotch, some plum, light cinnamon. Some alcohol warmimng from the scotch element. Sticky medium-full body, low carbonation. Certainly a bold interpretation of the style.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 Bottle, many thanks to OldGrowth. This was a very good scottish "wee heavy". I nice soft sweetness, well rounded mouthfeel. Light caramelly sweetness, is balanced by a lightly peaty, lightly roasty finish, and a nice soft alcohol warmth in the finish adds a little more length to the flavour.

12 oz bottle via trade (thanks Ross!). Beer pours a clear brown color, small beige head. Lots of bubbles coming from bottom of my pilsner glass. Fruity, spicey alcohol laden aroma. Malty scocth alcohol laden taste with some caramel and fig flavor. Nice finish. Well carbonated. The finish actually reminds me of a mixed scotch & coke. This one tastes just like the name indicates. It is Wee heavy and a scotch ale! Would like to drink this one again.,, but only 1 at a time ;)
