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%

Bottle 33cl from Allen, a dark amber beer with low head. Nose is sweet like with red fruits and oxidized notes. Aroma is on sweet caramel with prune dominant, bit oxidized, yeast, barley grains, red fruits, fig, quite alcoholic, finish is very sweet again with lot of burnt caramel notes.

pushkinwow (1955) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle from 2011. Mahogany with a nice beige head. Alcohol, some prunes, some peat, resin, fair amount of sweet caramel malts. Mild+ carbonation, moderate+ body, sweet, slightly sticky, boozy, not sure my palate enjoys the strengths of each individual flavour as they do not seem to meld well together, somewhat dry finish.

Tap. Pours dark amber with a slight amount of head. Aroma of mixed fruits and alcohol. Taste of dates with slight carbonation and a nice burn of alcohol.

DesertDevil (487) - Arizona, USA - JUN 20, 2013
2010 12-oz. bottle. Very boozy, malty aroma with caramel, toffee, and a heavy wood resin note. Pours a muddy dark color with chunky lacing. Sharp caramel malt flavor with an almost overpowering woody, grainy tone, and a touch of orange. Thick body with a very syrupy texture and an astringent finish. Even though it’s close to 3 years old, the brew still tastes quite green; perhaps even more time in the cellar is needed.

rondphoto (1778) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Hazy dark golden amber with a lingering two-finger head that finally reduces to a head cover; thick streaks of lace. Sweet caramel malt opens this, followed by fruitcake fruit through the palate that finishes with a palatable warming alcohol that also provides a balancing edge. A very good Barleywine. Highly recommended.

Bottle. This must be infected. The nose is funky and it tastes of chemicals and medicinal. Too bad, I was looking forward to this.

12 ounce bottle via Timfoolery, nice head and fizziness, malty, not overly boozy. Simple but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strange beer. The fruit flavors in this combine in a really odd way. Not bad tho

Gachupines (849) - USA - APR 17, 2013
Dark amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is light pine hops with a very slight fruity element. Flavor is a little sweet with a tiny bit of hops in the finish. A little resinous in the finish though the body is a bit thin. Aftertaste is bittersweet. Not bad, but it could be a bit more impressive.

conway (1301) - - APR 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours copper with a dissipating off-white head. Nose is mango, pine and a touch of caramel. Taste is a variety of tropical fruits, namely mango and pineapple with a strong caramel backbone. Palate is full and smooth. Bit of alcohol bite throughout. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
