COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duck-Rabbit Barelywine is the hoppiest of all the Duck-Rabbit brews. This is a Farmville-style Barleywine, crafted the way brewers in Farmville have always done. Loads of Amarillo hops give a piney citrusy bitterness that’s supported beautifully by a toffee malt backbone. ABV: 11.0%

12oz bottle from ?. Beautiful copper pour, murky clarity (cannot see through) with mostly diminishing off-white fizzy head. Fair but spotty lacing. Sweet dark fruity aroma, underlying citrus hop and alcohol aromas. Light bitter dark fruit up front with a medium citrus hop on the finish. Soft carbonation and oily texture on the palate. There was alot going on here, I may have missed a few things but overall I liked it.

3/6/14. Bottle bought 11/2012. Yum....poured dark copper with thin head that slowly faded. Nice rich fruit nose with a hint of hop. Deep round mouth with a hint of sour. Wonderfully complex. Drunk side by side with an early 2014 and a much more interesting drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber and clear with a light layer of spotty bubbles. Nose is some toasty, nutty, light caramel malts, bready but seems like it’s lacking some richness that I would expect from a barleywine. Flavor is toasty and nutty with some toffee malts. Medium body and a little thin. Good flavor but seems like a small beer really.

matty (197) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a light brown color with a thin off-white head that doesn’t last long. Not too much carbonation. Aroma is caramel and fruit. The caramel and fruit continue into the taste along with some sourness, especially in the finish. Warming alcohol after the swallow. Not bad.

Bottle->snifter. Hazy lite brown with moderate white head. Sweet caramel malt and dark fruit. Bittersweet. Straightforward but quite good.

6 pack at the brewery for 13 bucks. Pours a hazy copper/reddish color with a pillowy white head. Looks nice. Aroma is dark fruit, caramel, a little raisin. Taste is similar but with a heavier emphasis on the fruit and a little boozy with a lasting alcohol/caramel flavor coming through. Body is a little thicker and creamier than most Barleywines, low carbonation. Overall a fine Barleywine ale and one of the better offerings from Duck Rabbit. Recommended.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Best by: Dec, ???? A: dark caramel ale with a finger of whipped toasted cream foam. This sticks around for quite some time before barely retreating to a quilt of the same. Sheet lace. excellent clarity. S: Toffee, caramel, burnt sugar, hints of oatmeal and maple. Nice. T: Sweet malts, subtle cotton candy tone. Some nice maple syrup notes and a bit of raisin. Maybe a little bit of metal. M: Medium on heavy for the style. Lower, appropriate carb. Semi dry finish. O: Nice beer. Flavor a little off. would like a little thinner in the body. Serving type: bottle 11-17-2011

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie. Sweet dark fruit aroma along with caramel malt. Pours light brown with a good, tan head and excellent lacing. Sweet caramel malt to start. Finishes smooth with a good amount of dark fruit on the finish with just a hint of booze. Hides the high alcohol well. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MiP (13599) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2013
Bottle, 11%. Peppery vanilla and coconut aroma, fried fruit and nuts... Studentenfutterbier? Cloudy red brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour is very sweet and nicely alcoholic. Has the same flavour notes as aroma notes, but the flavour is also citric. Not as flavourful as it could have been considering the ABV.
