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%

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 donít 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. Iíll have it again.
