Red Duck Loch Ness

Red Duck Brewery

Released July 5th, 2010

Red Duck's Loch Ness is a dark, malty brew, with rich flavours from chocolate malt, roast barley and other dark malts. It had an extended boil time to boost caramelisation, a slow and gentle fermentation period, then a short maturation period of six weeks in charred former whisky barrels. The result is beer which pours with a tan head and displays rich but subtle flavours: roasted malt and bags of dark chocolate with touches of caramel, oak, stewed dark fruits and, atop the lingering, warming finish, some whisky. Those fruits reappear on the nose, mingling with chocolate and a touch of oak. And, says the brewer: 'In case you're worried that the char would impart a smokey character, it doesn't. Pure carbon has a cleaning effect ' this is not a smokey beer at all.�
