In collaboration with the awesome Oskar Blues from Colorado, weve created this big, twisted 10.5% American style barley wine. With big boozy aromas thatll swirl round your nostrils and a sweet viscosity thatll 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, youre left with a lingering warmth and bitterness playing in your month. - See more at: http://www.brewdog.com/product/shipwrecker-circus#sthash.e9vrs12U.dpuf

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2016 Brown-amber color with nice beige head. Spices, malts, hops. American stuff: pines, spruce, caramel, toffee. Taste is dry dark malts, toffee, even coffee-like, with lots of piney hops. Bitter finish. Low carbonation. A very pleasant assault on your senses. 7-4-8-4-16 Bottle, BB 07-10-2018, shared with jonas in October 2016. Slightly oxidized, but still quite hoppy. 7-4-7-4-15

From notes on 6/14/15 Bought a can of this while visiting the Oskar Blues brewery. This is most definetaly an American barleywine. Very hoppy. Almost seems like a sweet double IPA.

fletchfighters (1482) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2015
330 ML bottle Dark Mahogany. Rocky light tan head that falls to a thick collar. Leaves spotty lacing. Sticky ABV legs to this. Nose is bread, caramel, dark fruits, fruit cake, brandy, and brown sugar. Nose is obvious that it has some age on it. Not much booze left in this. Taste is dark fruit, pine and citrus but still hoppy. Dark fruit and bread in the mid and back. Still quite oily in the mouth. pine and grapefruit finish with some brandy topped dark fruits. A bit one dimensional at times but pretty decent overall

colui72 (859) - HONG KONG - AUG 10, 2015
Brown with cream colour minimal head. Aroma of fruit cake, malts and sugar. Taste gets more bready with some bitterness in the end. Awesome.

visionthing (5080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2015
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet somewhere in Oslo some time back. Pours dark amber to brown with a beige head. Malty and caramamelly aroma with some hoppy notes, dried fruits, herbs and hints of citrus, spices and alcohol. Sweet, very sweet, but still somehow quite drinkable, and it finishes with a nice bitterness. Rather flavourful and quite a tasty sipper.

330ml bottle from Brewdog shop. Small cream coloured head, good lacing, body is slightly murky dark brown. Big fruity nose, raisins, treacle, alcohol, pine. Flavour is fruit cake, burnt sugar, booze, surprisingly bitter finish. Great mouthfeel, oily, chewy, light carbonation. Rich, fruity, spicy, this is a big beer.

Barley wine mais leve (apesar dos 10% teor de alcool). uma boa cerveja, mas com um pssimo custo benefcio.
