COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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
Hops: Chinook, Cascade, Citra
Twist: American style Barley Wine brewed with Oskar Blues

3.6
maekchu (4024) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2016
Bottle. Maybe three years old or so (drink-by date is 2018). Dark fruity nose, with lots of caramel and ripe oozing pine sap. Murky dark reddish/brown color and nearly flat. Heavy caramel initial, stewed dark fruit, overripe prunes, bread, sherry notes, and wood. Medium-heavy (somewhat thin for the style) and rather warming. Nice enough, but probably would have been better a couple of years ago.
