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

UNCCTF (512) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Bottled, from Lighthouse Beer/Wine in Surf City. Barley transparent orange coloring, very little head. Aroma of fruits - raisins, maybe? Could be apricots. The flavor is great with lots of fruit and a very subtle hop tinge. The mouthfeel is a bit much for me - barleywines like Old Foghorn and Bigfoot dont quite have the heavy feeling that this one does. Extra points for an N.C. brewery putting out a barleywine - this is by no means bad. Ill have it again.

was pleasantly surprised by this beer! poured a hazy brownish red color with a nice thin white head that lasted nicely eventually lacing the glass. the aroma smacks you as you open the bottle with strong aromas of roasted coffee and hazelnuts. Has a nice body with just the right amount of carbonation. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate a bitty nutty. ends nicely with a small bite. the alcohol level is noticeable but not unpleasant. .

guzzler67 (1579) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Hazy, brassy appearance with a small, off white head and modest lasting. Sweet, malty aroma of toffee and ripe fruit with a light spicy hop edge. Flavors of caramel, shortbread cookies and dried fruit overpower the subtle hops. Full bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Lingering alcohol in the finish is noticable.

Bottle shared during RBWG 2015 - Tampa. Pours mostly clear amber-gold with a white foam head. The nose holds toasted crackers, tangy fruits, bread. Medium sweet flavor with more tangy fruits, berries, leafy hops, booze. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with ripe fruits, bready malts, suggestions of age. So so.
