COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A red beer with a nice brown head. The aroma is very sweet with spicy notes - especially cinnamon. The flavor is extremely sweet and with the alcohol biting in the throat, but also with notes of wood, cloves, and cinnamon.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle. A ruby-brown, almost clear beer with a small beige head on top. Malty and sweetish nose, with nice hops, alcohol and caramel. Alcohol, beef-stock, dried fruits, sherry, some hops and phenols, caramel and dried fruits in the flavor. Warming, full-bodied and well carbonated. The finish has dried fruits, hops, alcohol and some roasted malt. A really lovely, warming and full-bodied winter beer, maybe a bit on the sweet side, but really nice. (090522)

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2006
Light brown colour. Aroma pretty typical for the style, toasty, woody, quite rich with caramel-toffee maltiness. Alcoholic and earthy, with a rich malty character. Quite chewy.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2006
(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.
