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

Bottle courtesy of Ross. Pours mahogany with a generous tan head. Smells of citrus, oak, sweet malt, some fruity hints and warming alcohol. Tastes of citrus, oak, hints of cognac, tarte malt, some underlying sourness and vanilla. Mouthfeel is thick with a tangy finish. Very enjoyable.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - APR 18, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 12 oz bottle via TURDFERGUSON (thanks!). Pours a clear dark amber with a massive beige head. Nose is fruity and a little sour. Taste is....weird. Not like a Barleywine...more like a...strong ale? Everything is subdued..there are spicey/earthy hops, lots of yeasty fruity easters, some toffee...but it is all muted..almost like a barleywine on Nitro but without the silky mouthfeel, as the carbonation is moderate. Thin body for a BW....

Big thanks to my supplier Scubatrip. Clear ruby red with a huge head. Fair lacing. Aroma is a little off-putting; grass, alcohol, brown sugar, citrus and plums. Its got a plethora of flavors, and none of them seem to go together. Slightly astringent finish.

IrishBoy (4177) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 13, 2007
Bottle 12 oz from Ross!!! Nose of light piney hops with a little plums and prunes mixed with caramel; rusty red with a medium straw colored head; flavor of sweet golden raisins, caramel, in a mediumthick body and a slightly bitter and light alcohol finish. Good barleywine, underrated IMO!

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 Thanks to SoLan for letting me try this. I am a little surprised this is rated so low. I really enjoyed it. Pours a deep orange-red. Nice half inch white head. Smells of sweet pine and citrus. Taste is fruity, caramel, finishes on hops that quickly fade leaving you ready for another sip. I thought it was nicely balanced, my kind of barleywine.

MaxxDaddy (415) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2007
Bottle courtesy of TURDFERGUSON (thanks!). Pours reddish orange with some off-white head. Aroma was rather sweet, perhaps peaches (thats a first for me), with slight piney hoppiness in the background. The taste was pretty sweet, plenty of caramel and fruity taste, and not much hoppy bitterness to speak of. Mouthfeel was somewhat thick and not too bubbly. The alcohol was certainly well-concealed. This certainly wasnt a bad beer, but I must say it was a little too sweet.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - APR 5, 2007
From a trade with Shigadeyo. Pours a clean dark amber with a big off white head. Big lacing and decent carbonation. Great looking pour. Aroma is sort of a sourish fruit. I cant put my finger one it. Maybe apricot?? Flavor is quite fruity. Plum, maybe soem raison, malts and sweet hops. Has a thick mouthfeel and is warming in the gut. I liked it.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Firey orange color. Big head. The nose doesnt offer anything of distinction...just a very light smell. Flavor brings some super sweet malt and some unusual fruit flavors. Some nice elements in the flavor, such as the caramel-like finish, but for the most part this is weird and below average.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2010 Thanks to jasonmech77. Pours a translucent amber with a medium foamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of orange and various citrus, some caramel, lots of hops, fruity esters, some dark fruits. A lot hoppier than I was expecting from a Duck-Rabbit. Flavor was earthy, yeasty, spicy, some toffee, alcohol, pine and grapefruit. 7-4-6-4-13 Re-rate on a 3 year old aged bottle. Pours a deeper brownish amber with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of rich dark fruits, tobacco, caramel, pecans, earthy and leathery. Flavor of sweet dark fruits, candy sugar, tobacco, caramel, prunes, earthy motes and sugary pecans.
