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.

This beer is interesting in how strong a flavor it has based on the water and hops. I am fond of Ruck-Rabbit and love their more common styles, however, this beer has a slight, hmmmm, oyster taste to it. I know the water around that area and this might be an effect, but it was quite a shock to taste. VERY pronounced dry hop presence with a moderate malt balance. Quite heavy as the style suggests and is not one to be consumed at once. Savor this one but be aware that you might taste some interesting flavors.

Pours a coppery brown from a bottle, very little head which quickly dissipates. Big caramel, toffee aroma, some vanilla added in the flavor. Too sweet and syrupy for me. Good beer.

Dark amber color is lighter than expected, but this is a pretty nice sweet leaning wee heavy. Would like more peat, but the dark pit fruit and carmelized malt flavor and aroma that are present are quite nice.

PorterPounder (7961) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2017
Tallahassee, Fl - Beer Stop - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, quickly fading off-white head. Aroma has some peat-like accents, a hint of chocolate, some licorice. Flavor has some toffee notes, a bit of chocolate, a hint of licorice and has a smoky back end. Mouthfeel is thick and rich. Pretty solid.

The aroma is a bit flat, but boozy. The deep amber, almost brandy tint is quite eye catching. Sugary syrup dissolves on the tongue, reminding me vividly of a candy apple. The finish is a bit thin, with a slight metallic flavor. Not necessarily one of the best scotch wee-heavy (its more like wee-lite) ales I’ve had. I’d take a McEwans over this...

Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2017
This beer is nice, but it looks and smells more tantalizing than it tastes or sits in your mouth. It’s got an interesting finish, one that sours, in a sense, but it’s good. It’s funky.

BelgianBeerGal (4066) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2017
ABC PCB bottle. Pours out a nice amber color with a khaki head and nice carbonation. Lots of bread malt and yeast in the aroma. Sweet toffee flavor with a touch of bitter coffee in the finish. Maybe some maple syrup or simple syrup too. Nice.

3.4
BVery (10500) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine in Daytona. Clear copper colored pour with a minor head. Sweet sugars, toffee and caramel, and some booze heat. Not bad.

smaynard6000 (1165) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with small beige head. Malty, earthy aroma. Sweet flavor with caramel malt notes. Some warming in the finish. Medium bodied with creamy mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.4
DocJitsu (1974) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Pours s clear ruby-Cooper color with a short off-white head (please learn to pour a beer WOB Pensacola). Fruity nose up front. Fig, apple. Toasted flavors emerge a few moments into the inhale. Full, slick mouthfeel. Vibrant flavors. Nice toasty sweetness envelopes the esters.

3.8

Acobreada e densa. Malte evidente como pede o estilo, com caramelo, mel e cardamomo. Sensacional custo beneficio.
