CLOWN KING WHISKY
AMERICAN BARLEY WINE
The Big Top is back in town. Revisit the twisted circus and get reacquainted with the ringmaster in chief. This time, the Clown King is ready with an encore that will leave you speechless. His American Barley Wine hits like a high striker thanks to six months locked away in Speyside whisky casks.
This sojourn adds layers of sweet, dark fruit and toasted marshmallow on top of the running order of five malts and four different hops. It also means those spicy, fruity and caramel notes still make their presence felt. And what a story; Clown King leaves the arena with a smooth finish that lasts as long as the standing ovation.
Barrel Aged Clown King - roll up, roll up.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Original Gravity (abbreviated OG) is a measure of the fermentable and unfermentable substances in a beer wort before fermentation. Those substances are often the sugars that will be converted to alcohol during the fermentation process.
BA Barley Wine
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
Brown, Cara, Crystal, Munich, Pale
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Ahtanum, Hallertauer Taurus, Mosaic, Simcoe
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
