Deep Creek Dweller On The Threshold (750ml Bottle)
This is one hell of a beer! We start by brewing a rich, smooth Scotch Ale, then age it in used whiskey barrels for a devilish twist. The intoxicating whiskey flavours and aromas infuse seamlessly with our creation, like a malevolent entity attaching itself to a human being..
The aged oak barrels also impart hints of vanilla, a promise of something sweeter amidst the darkness. A devilish creation.
Scotch Ale was the name given to a strong pale ale from Edinburgh in the 19th century. This was typical of the strong pale ales brewed in Britain at that time - mainly pale barley malt and moderate hopping, and were not that stylistically different to English Strong Ales or Barley Wines. The name however became regionalised so that a strong pale ale from Scotland became known as a Scotch Ale or Wee Heavy. Beers using the designation Scotch Ale are popular in the USA where most examples are brewed locally. Examples of beers brewed in the USA under the name Wee Heavy tend to be 7% abv and higher, while Scottish brewed examples, such as Belhavens Wee Heavy, are typically between 5.5% and 6.5% abv.
