Kind of funny two animals, duck rabbit, and two drinks, barley (beer) wine. Note this beer has been aged for one year. Pours a darker amber to brown color with some reddish hues throughout. A good pour but left a very limited head. A few swirls helps a bit but limited. So goes per the lace.

The nose has a good malty backing with some minor hops notes. The malt has some minor complexity but would have expected more. Some caramel note but mostly a sweet grainy malt aroma. Some alcohol notes but pretty clean yeast wise. Not much hops in the nose either.

The taste has more of that complexity that I look for in the malt. The caramel flavors come out more with some depth. IMO, I would have liked more depth but a good start. The hops also come out nicely with some light earthy and hints of citrus notes. Some esters as well, cherry, apples and pears. Some minor fusels, which is not ok, but some minor alcohol as well. Really a nice rounded out flavor.

The body is moderate to big. So sure this is a year old, but it actually is pretty tasty. I would have liked a bit more complexity in the malt but overall good.
