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%

tia (2072) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle. Copper with tan head and light lacing. Smells like candied-apple, brandy, and an undercurrent of vetiver. Taste is more to the bitter side with a little sour and some sweetness. A little astringent, nice bitter finish.

beastiefan2k (3889) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2017
12oz bottle, recent release. I bought this expecting a lot but I got was a poorly made barleywine with many of the trappings for the style. Lots of high alcohol astringency with cherry. Its just what I hate in a barleywine. A few sips and dumped it.

smaynard6000 (1138) - Apopka, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark red color with small beige head. Strong caramel malt aroma with toffee notes. Some citrusy hop characteristics as well. Pretty balanced flavor, but definitely showcases the hoppiness of this beer. The malty sweetness comes through as well. Full bodied with mostly hop notes up front and some sweetness in the finish. Very nice.

drpimento (3526) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2017
I was expecting a lot more out of this one. Aroma is fruit caramel and Sullivans. Flavors like nose, bittersweet, with a lingering bitter, boozy finish.

glennmastrange (2824) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle. Moderate to heavy roasted, caramel for the malt, light cooked orange for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with notes of tobacco, sherry, bourbon, and charred wood. Head is large, frothy turning creamy, beige with excellent lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear copper. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and moderately acidic, then the long finish is lightly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Palate is medium to full, creamy, with a soft carbonation, a heavily astringent and drying finish with a little stickiness on the lips. The pronounced bitterness at the end may not be true to style for a Barley Wine but it balances this beer nicely

mcberko (16920) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle from 2006-2010. 12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma is oxidized, with bready malt, toasted caramel and light sweetness. Flavour has quite a lot of alcohol, with caramel and dark fruits. Fairly oxidized, but not too intrusively so. Decent for such an old beer.

solidfunk (8640) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 13, 2016

S_Side_Smitty (765) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Pours red-amber and clear (?) with a medium light tan head. Aroma is slightly sweet (maybe some mild molasses) with a fermented grain aroma. Taste, unlike aroma, is interesting with syrupy sweetfeed like grains up front followed by some hoppy tropical fruits that kinda dance around with the grains. Thats followed by an insidious bitterness that creeps in for the finish. American style for sure, but not what I would expect from a barley wine even if it is American style. The flavors just arent deep enough, but the alcohol is hidden well.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle. Color was an auburn amber with only a wisp of head. Aroma of ripe roten fruit, caramel, earth and bacon. Malty, with some mild piney hops in finish. Lingers. Alcohol hidden. Fairly mild overall

thegreenrooster (4328) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Pour is a hazy copper with a average white head. Aroma Is a nice sugar plum with a bit of toffee and alcohol. Flavor is a big toffee and a full on assault of earthy malt. The mouth feel is a bit thick but has plenty of chewy molasses and toffee malt with a lot of dark fruit but also has a bit of hop bitterness. One of those beers where you can still taste it long after the swallow. The alcohol is no problem with this beer but it does give you a pleasant warming in the chest after each swallow.
