Pours a mahogany colour with a thin head. Amalt filled nose with some alcohol present.The taste is quite malty and sweet with the alcohol staying everpresent, spicy retro-nasal. The flavour is so big it almost becomes cloying, full thick mouthfeel. A robust example Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Sampled at Brewgrass Fest. Amber-brown color with a lasting cream colored head. Aroma had a tiny bit of peat. I was really distracted by what I can only describe a a "malted milk ball" factor that was present in the aroma and especially in the flavor. Too much unfermented malt maybe? Also had some boozy burn at the end. This is one of the few Duck-Rabbitt brews that I haven’t been a big fan of. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2006
Brownish colour with minimal head. Aroma is peaty and oaky with lots of roasted malts. Flavour is quite sweet with lots of caramel with a hint of molasses. Lots of booze on the finish. CapFlu (5127) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2006
(Bottle) Whickey, roasted malt nose. Smooth caramel, corn syrup and cherries in the flavour. A decent Scotch Ale but just not my style to enjoy it. Suttree (6385) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Clear brownish bronze, with a thin beige head. Aroma is mostly pumpernickle bread with notes of whiskey and rye. Very smooth, almost syrupy palate. Nicely blended flavors of whiskey, caramel, and some almost sugary notes of molasses and honey. Impressive. Sampled at Asheville Brewgrass, 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. jrob21 (3687) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2006
On tap at Barleys in Asheville. This one kicked my ass and sent me home for the night. Sweet and malty. Vanilla tastes remind me of something aged in oak. Big purple fruit aromas and tastes as well. Tasty. IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 10, 2006

Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo ’06... Clear, deep copper ale with a small, fizzy, khaki head. The nose is sweet with notes of dark fruit, medium sherry, toffee and a touch of mint. Sweet, vinous flavor with a little chocolate and very mild bitterness. Full-bodied and oily with prickly carbonation. Bitter-sweet, dark fruit finish.
