Keg and bottled, special
In collaboration with the awesome Oskar Blues from Colorado, we’ve created this big, twisted 10.5% American style barley wine. With big boozy aromas that’ll swirl round your nostrils and a sweet viscosity that’ll cover your tongue from top to tip, this is a beer for people who enjoy nonsense and walking on tightropes. Even when the Circus packs up and leaves, you’re left with a lingering warmth and bitterness playing in your month. - See more at: http://www.brewdog.com/product/shipwrecker-circus#sthash.e9vrs12U.dpuf

PotjeBier (1779) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2014
Keg @ Beer Temple (taster size). Clear red brown color. Off white head with reasonable lacing. Aroma’s: caramel, resinous hops, pine needles, plus some dark fruit retronasal. Flavor is light to moderate sweet with a solid bitterness and light fruity sourness. Alcohol feels pretty strong, warming. Medium to full bodied. Firm bitter finish, resinous. I quite liked this.

Mr_Pink_152 (1332) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
330ml bottle from Stirchley Wines and Spirits. Dark amber colour with no head. Aroma is sweet, vegetables and malts. Tastes very sweet, but with depth. Nice.

dambor (98) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2014
Pours a dark amber with almost no head. Aroma: heavily malty characters with a pleasant hops aroma. Taste: malts, some hoppy elements, liquor and an interesting heavy taste which reminds me of a syrup (maybe maple syrup?). Palate: heavy, licquourish with a pleasant bitterness. A very good, new wave barley wine.

Stuu666 (4719) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours brown, sweet toffee, caramel, blackcurrant, bitter, harsh finish-needs more time.

Smalle (176) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 13, 2014
Aroma: sweet and malty, caramel and quite a lot of hops as well. Taste: also quite sweet and sticky at first, toffee and quite a lot of citrus hoppiness running through. Enjoyable, but doesn’t feel very well balanced.

Jamedra (595) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 1, 2014
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je vcelku příjemné, lehce ovocné s nádechem ořechů. Pěna je zlato bílá, jemná, nízká a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je rubínová. Chuť je velmi výrazná má nádech ovocného likéru se silným alkoholovým podkladem, finiš je středně hořký, alkoholový a držící. V ústech pivo působí plně, má střední říz a je překvapivě dobře pitelné. Tento barleywine je opravdu velmi chutný a i přes svojí mohutnost je dobré pitelnosti.
