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. Copper color with medium head. Aroma is malt, malt syrup, caramel, and hop resin. Good balance of hops and malt. Maybe more on the matly side. Solid bitter finish. Medium body (at least). Slight warming alcohol. Average carbonation. A solid barley wine, not the best Ive had, but solid.

JFGrind (2035) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2014
Dark golden medium bodied, aroma of fruit, flavors of sweet caramel, medium bitterness. Overall for the high alcohol content Duck-Rabbit is a laid back and dare say easy drinking barley wine.

AdamT (268) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 20, 2014
12oz bottle from ?. Beautiful copper pour, murky clarity (cannot see through) with mostly diminishing off-white fizzy head. Fair but spotty lacing. Sweet dark fruity aroma, underlying citrus hop and alcohol aromas. Light bitter dark fruit up front with a medium citrus hop on the finish. Soft carbonation and oily texture on the palate. There was alot going on here, I may have missed a few things but overall I liked it.

3/6/14. Bottle bought 11/2012. Yum....poured dark copper with thin head that slowly faded. Nice rich fruit nose with a hint of hop. Deep round mouth with a hint of sour. Wonderfully complex. Drunk side by side with an early 2014 and a much more interesting drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Pours amber and clear with a light layer of spotty bubbles. Nose is some toasty, nutty, light caramel malts, bready but seems like its lacking some richness that I would expect from a barleywine. Flavor is toasty and nutty with some toffee malts. Medium body and a little thin. Good flavor but seems like a small beer really.

matty (403) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a light brown color with a thin off-white head that doesnt last long. Not too much carbonation. Aroma is caramel and fruit. The caramel and fruit continue into the taste along with some sourness, especially in the finish. Warming alcohol after the swallow. Not bad.

Bottle->snifter. Hazy lite brown with moderate white head. Sweet caramel malt and dark fruit. Bittersweet. Straightforward but quite good.

6 pack at the brewery for 13 bucks. Pours a hazy copper/reddish color with a pillowy white head. Looks nice. Aroma is dark fruit, caramel, a little raisin. Taste is similar but with a heavier emphasis on the fruit and a little boozy with a lasting alcohol/caramel flavor coming through. Body is a little thicker and creamier than most Barleywines, low carbonation. Overall a fine Barleywine ale and one of the better offerings from Duck Rabbit. Recommended.
