  1. Preheat the broiler to high.
  2. Grate the cheese coarsely. There should be about two cups.
  3. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan and add the cheese. Stir briefly and add the ale. Continue cooking over low heat, stirring, until the cheese is thoroughly melted and smooth. Add the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.
  4. Arrange the toast slices in four fairly shallow ramekins. Spoon an equal amount of the rabbit on top of each. Place under the broiler, and broil until bubbling and lightly browned. Serve immediately.
