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

Fashawn (589) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2015
Interessante ibrido. C un naso vinoso, bello carico, con note di liquirizia e prugna ed un po di terra. parecchio luppolata rispetto alle solite barley wine. In bocca dolcezza iniziale ma ancora tante bollicine, non si doma facilmente al palato ma il sapore splendida. Buona birra, da verificare invecchiata.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
330 mL bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a stem glass. Pours deep toffee with a small tan head that mostly remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big toffee, along with brown sugar, vanilla, dark fruit, a hint of chocolate and raisins. The flavour is moderately sweet with molasses, chocolate, figs, raisins, toasted malts and soft balancing hops. The finish is long and balanced between complex malts and a nice hoppy bitterness. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a syrupy texture. Overall, a very nice barley wine with nice malty complexity. 2015-02-05
