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%

Ungstrup (30256) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2008
Bottled. A dark amber beer with a lazing tan head. The aroma is powerful with a weird combination of spices and fruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of fruit and light notes of alcohol, with a dry bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007
Hazy red to dark amber color; nice creamy head and lace. Powerful aroma, malty and sweet, with a touch of apples. Very sweet flavor, malty, with a touch of wood (at least bringing in some light astringency to counterbalance). A bit off track, but very enjoyable for me.

Bottle courtesy of Grima, thanks! Lots of caramel, as expected, but better character and complexity than most barleywines.

Bottle, thx to the_epeeist. It pours a dark golden to copper body, with a lovely, dense, off-white head. It has a malty-sweet nose with a fruity hoppyness, but itís not as pronounced as I could wish for. The flavor is sweet and malty as well, with a fruityness from the hops, but maybe a bit low on hops, even though I tend to like the barley wines on the sweet and malty side. Full body, maybe a bit sticky in the mouth. The bitterness in this beer is most evident in the long finish. Having this after Victory Old Horizontal was a little down-trip, and maybe not fair to the beer, but itís far from being bad though. Very far. (071123)
