Moving right along…we have Duck Rabbit Wee Heavy Scotch Syle Ale.
Farmville, NC’s own Duck Rabbit Brewery, “The Dark Beer Specialists”, brings us this take on the Scotch Ale.
Yeah, about that.
I’m a big fan of their Brown Ale and Milk Stout but this Scotch Ale just doesn’t cut it with me. Though full of whiskey barrel flavor and beautiful dark amber hue, this is just too sweet with little kick. It’s more congac than single malt. If this were the test batch there would be cause for optimism. I know I’m in the minority with this appraisal, but I expect a much more brutal impact from a Scotch Ale.
Besides their regular fare, Duck Rabbit has arguably the greatest logo ever.
