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 thatís supported beautifully by a toffee malt backbone. ABV: 11.0%

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

Decent, if a little flat. Also I donít think that mine was quite this strong...Pours dark, little head or carbonation. Sweet, not very hoppy, and smooth. Good, not amazing.

jcos (1522) - Maryland, USA - APR 8, 2013
Location/Date:Bottle split with Dave on 4/7/2013 during S3E2 of GoT.

Appearance: Pours a medium caramel clear.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel, light booze, faint bread.
Taste: Light hop, strong caramel, somewhat sweet.
Palate:Medium light body, light aftertaste.

Summary: Going through my collection in the great inventory reduction of 2013, so getting kinda burnt out on the style - but this is really well made, I like the lightness of the appearance and the body.

Clear amber pour with a tiny white head. Nose is juicy juice, campfire wood smoke, sweet caramel malts and toffee. A weird combo of aroma. Sweet juicy raspberry and dark fruit flavor, lighter smoke and sweetness. This is interesting and hard to pinpoint but not bad.
