What a unique, good tasting beer! The beer pours a small head with a bourbon and dark cherry aroma. The taste is mostly the same with a slight tartness to it. The mouthfeel was good as the carbonation level seemed on par with this type of beer. I am very impressed with this beer, it's not something you can slam down or drink massive amounts of but when relaxing this is a great choice.

Bottom Line: Rushing Duck kicks A$$!

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. Big khaki head. Lasts with wisps for a while.

Smell - Smells like peanuts. Peanut butter. Caramel. I don't get any of that bourbon barrel.

Taste - And it kinda tastes like peanuts. Nutty malts. A hint of oak. Caramel. The finish is a little astringent. Some apple fruitiness, too.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - Middle of the road. I have no complaints, but I also can't say too much about it is great.

Dog's Bollocks pours a deep cloudy mohogany color with hints of amber and with a small head and low retention and low of lacing. Smells of mostly of bourbon, and dark cherry. Also some vanilla, earth, maple syrup, and oak.

Taste starts with oak and light vanilla, then bourbon, then crisp herbal hops, earthiness, and dark cherry/sweet/fruity. Nice crisp dry finish, can definitely feel the alcohol in the taste more than the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy with below average carbonation and a bit of slickness.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a beautiful brown, clear and thick looking, nice finger of tan foam atop that leaves some lasting lace as it retreats.

Tart yeast, vanilla, bourbon, caramel, some sharp but very light hops in there too, all in a medium strength aroma that is enticing.

Wow all the flavors of the bouquet, but the hops at the end of the sip leave a nice herbal drying. It is sweet, but it is a balanced sweet that doesn't overpower nor cloy, and the bourbon goodness is forward but really tasty. Clean and very delicious.

Lighter in the mouth than many, but it is an advantage for this big beer. Low carb., really nice finish, clean linger on palate.

What a great beer, can't wait for them to do this again. I think I saw 5 barrels of it ageing on a pallet in back.

On tap @ Decicco's Brewster

Pours a nice amber color with a hint of off white head.

Smell is sweet with notes of bourbon and hints of vanilla.

Taste matches the nose almost perfectly. The bourbon is more pronounced in the taste.

The mothfeel is very nice as well. A nice full bodied barleywine.

Overall, this is another great beer from Rushing Duck. I have to go get more before it is all gone.

Serving type: on-tap
