COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbits Scotch Ale is a full-bodied, deep copper-colored treasure. Bold and malty, this beers sweetness comes from a massive quantity of grain complemented by some serious kettle carmelization. The flavor is rounded out by a warming alcohol sensation.

wesyates (55) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JAN 19, 2014
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.

PorterPounder (7765) - 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.

barrelagedluv (9) - Pittsburg, California, USA - MAR 17, 2017 does not count
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 Ive had. Id 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. Its got an interesting finish, one that sours, in a sense, but its good. Its funky.

BelgianBeerGal (4014) - 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.

BVery (10122) - 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.

DocJitsu (1928) - 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.

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

chinchill (4760) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2016
12 oz bottle into snifter. A: clear, dark reddish brown body with a weak head that leaves negligible lacing. S: dark fruits, herbs (oddly), heated brown sugar and light alcohol. Flavor: As expected, lots of toffee and medium malts but it also resembles a barleywine or quad more than a typical version of the style .Disappointing up front but finishes strong. M: light-moderate amount of carbonation; full body.

glennmastrange (2804) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of toasted bread and cereal, moderate cooked orange for the hops, moderate to heavy dough for the yeast, with toffee and raisin in the background. Head is small, fizzy, tan, with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear medium brown. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and faintly bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, oily, with a soft to lively carbonation and a lightly alcoholic finish. Great smell and tasting Scotch Ale.
