Duck-Rabbit Barleywine Ale

Finally caught up with this on its recent arrival in GA in the last couple of weeks. 12oz single from a six-pack from Mac’s midtown, $11.99.
Beautiful looking beer when poured correctly and into the correct glassware. The color is a deep red garnet color with a great clarity, a lovely billowing head and some decent lace. VERY nice color, and I love the clarity.
Interesting because I think this seems to straddle the Enlish/American styles of BW. A sticky, syrup like consistency but the sweetness holds off until the aftertaste for me. However, if you spill this you’ll see how sugar there is in this brew! A bit more hop bitterness than I was expecting. Alcohol, while certainly present is not near the 11.00%
A good candidate for the cellar I would think.
One in a sitting is enough for me.
