Sampled at the Carolina Crew Gathering. Thanks to the DR crew for sharing. Reddish orange pour. Plenty of honey and booze in the aroma. Sweet honey, bready and yeasty. fairly full bodied. DIdn’t pick up any hops in the finish like other raters. Interesting and enjoyable brew.

Hand-bottle at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin ring of white bubbles. Has a soft, sweet, slightly oxidized caramel malty nose with some light fruity notes. Starts with some sweet caramel maltiness and toasty malts with some sweet fruity complexity and floral honey notes before a slightly warming sweet-tart finish. A pretty enjoyable braggot.

Handbottled. Pours hazy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty, light acidic. Sweet fruity and nice caramelish lingering base flavour. Smooth fruity and caramelish roasted into the finish.

Woodshop. Very sweet and malty. Honey is evident but not crazy honey like some meads. Finally able to try a DR mead! HELL YEAH!

Woodshop labeled Farmville Reserva Duck Rabbit. Super sharp alcohol nose. Taste is awesome. Sweet and complex. Great brew.

Guessing this is what I had, a hand labelled barleywine farmer’s reserve. At woodshop 5.0. Pours orange with a tan ring. Nose is sweet. Taste is sweet malty and quite smooth and quite nice.

A gracious sample of this at the ORF tasting thanks to Paul and Matt. Thanks guys! Boy was this a treat. I’ve never had anything like it. The aroma was spectacular. Sweet honey and light fruitiness with a subtle alcohol character. It says 13% here, but according to Paul it was right at 14.5%... and you definitely wouldn’t have guessed it. Only downside for me was the palate. it was completely dominated by the honey and not as complex as the aroma was hinting at. Still a great brew and I’m lucky I got to taste it.

Sampled at the Olde Rabbit’s Foot pre-release courtesy of Paul and Matt. First off, this may have been a mead at one time but now it is clearly a big barleywine. Pours a muddy, sticky brownish-orange. Sweet caramel and citrus aroma. Flavors of honey, orange, toffee, and caramel. Some moderate alcohol warming. Don’t pass this up if you ever are lucky enough to try it.

Big sample at the ORF pre-release tasting. Big thanks to Paul and Matt!!! Pours still, clear, slightly translucent light amber. Looks like a mead. Smell of honey, some alcohol. Taste is sweet honey, malty, spicy and dry and lots of gourmet toffee and butter that I have come to love from the DR barleywine. This is 14.5%! Unreal. Scary easy to drink, very smooth. Thanks guys!

Thanks to frumpy for sharing this at the Carolina crew gathering! I really enjoyed this mead, slightly more than then the rabbid braggot. It might be b/c it has had a little more time or whatever? Honey and alcohol on the nose. Excellent flavor; hops, honey, and yeast. slightly dry on the finish!
