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
Malts: Extra Pale, Munich, Crystal, Chocolate

Osprey87 (1711) - WALES - MAR 21, 2014
5 month old bottle. Dark red / brown, a ring of bubbly white head. Aroma - slight pine, even slighter tropical fruit, alcohol based perfume. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste - slight pine and toffee, really light on the flavour, alcohol comes through as the main flavour. Doesn’t come across as particularly hoppy...just sharp and alcoholic. Not a fan of this. A big disappointment.

CloakedDagger (597) - - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a thick nutty broen with a beige head. Nose has a lot of nuts and christmas pudding as well as pretty severe alcohol. Rich and syrupy body, but there’s clearly a shitload of hops in there too for a rather hoppy finish. A very typical US-style Barley Wine - and a good one too. 200314
