While it might be cold and wet out all of the time, at least late fall is good for one thing: beer. Gone are the light and fruity beers of summer and in their place we get dark and heavy beers with a high ABV, like barley wines, imperial stouts, and scotch ales. That’s my kind of beer!
The latest of these heading for shelves is Lighthouse Brewing‘s Depth Charge, which is a barrel-aged scotch ale with an ABV of 9%. They’ve not stated what sort of barrels were used or how long it was aged for, but the picture shows some sort of whiskey barrel in the background, I would assume scotch?
