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%

erickok (5390) - Leuven, - NOV 19, 2012
Hazy dark orange body and creamy light beige head. Rich caramel, sweet bread, creme brulee, bit harsh and some dead hops. Maybe a bit too old? Smooth and sweet body, powerful palate. Although itís a straightforawrd (American) barley wine without much pretence or challenges, I like it. Yeah, Iím a bit of a sucker for the style. (12oz bottle, from Proeflokaal De Molen)

glennmastrange (2663) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted, caramel for the malt, light cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with notes of tobacco, sherry, bourbon, and charred wood. Head is large, frothy turning creamy, beige with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear copper. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy, with a soft carbonation, a heavily astringent and drying finish with a little stickiness on the lips. The pronounced bitterness at the end may not be true to style for a Barley Wine but it balances this beer nicely

mcberko (14356) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle from 2006-2010. 12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma is oxidized, with bready malt, toasted caramel and light sweetness. Flavour has quite a lot of alcohol, with caramel and dark fruits. Fairly oxidized, but not too intrusively so. Decent for such an old beer.

solidfunk (7610) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Caramelized malt and mash. Brown pour with decent head. Sweet and boozy finish. Good for style. Bottle.

S_Side_Smitty (707) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours red-amber and clear (?) with a medium light tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet (maybe some mild molasses) with a fermented grain aroma. Taste, unlike aroma, is interesting with syrupy sweetfeed like grains up front followed by some hoppy tropical fruits that kinda dance around with the grains. Thatís followed by an insidious bitterness that creeps in for the finish. American style for sure, but not what I would expect from a barley wine even if it is American style. The flavors just arenít deep enough, but the alcohol is hidden well.

alexanderj (3539) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle. Color was an auburn amber with only a wisp of head. Aroma of ripe roten fruit, caramel, earth and bacon. Malty, with some mild piney hops in finish. Lingers. Alcohol hidden. Fairly mild overall

thegreenrooster (4001) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Pour is a hazy copper with a average white head. Aroma Is a nice sugar plum with a bit of toffee and alcohol. Flavor is a big toffee and a full on assault of earthy malt. The mouth feel is a bit thick but has plenty of chewy molasses and toffee malt with a lot of dark fruit but also has a bit of hop bitterness. One of those beers where you can still taste it long after the swallow. The alcohol is no problem with this beer but it does give you a pleasant warming in the chest after each swallow.

PorterPounder (7303) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - on tap at at Liberty Bar and Restaurant. Sparkling dark orange pour, frothy, off white head with a delicate web of lace. Boozy aroma, but not off- putting, some kids cereal sweetness, but not cloying. Flavor has some caramel, a bit of maple syrup, some brown sugar, solid sweetness, but not cloying at all. Thick, rich mouthfeel.

jsporrer (710) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Cloudy caramel brown with an off white ring of foam. Semi sweet toffee aroma. Light carbonation with a medium slightly oily body that clings to the glass. Smooth syrupy like texture that coats the tongue and roof of the mouth. Just a hint of bitterness along with the toffee flavor. Hides the alcohol well. No harshness and no burn at the finish. Flavors linger awhile. Very enjoyable.

Sirmixsomewhat (200) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Iím forced to review this after having poured a glass with a flat headóI think I got unlucky and got one that had just lost some of its carbonation or something. That said, it still pours a deep reddish brown and tastes wonderful. Itís kind of nutty and simultaneously smooth and robust. Fantastic beer.
